Orbit Developments have exchanged contracts with Superbowl UK for a new tenpin bowling alley and family entertainment complex to open at Linkway West in St Helens in the spring 2018.
The new 24,000 sq ft complex will provide 12 state-of-the-art ten-pin bowling lanes, a Crazy Club Soft Play Centre, a ‘Ninja Warrior’ trampoline style assault course, amusement arcade along with a stylish food diner and boutique lounge sports bar.
In addition to the family entertainment complex, the new development will offer ground floor retail and restaurant space totalling circa 19,000 sq ft to further enhance the onsite amenities.
An Aldi superstore and Costa Coffee drive-thru are already in operation at the location with Tex-Mex restaurant Chiquitos confirmed to open at Linkway West later this year.
Paul Hubball, director at Orbit Developments commented on the deal:
“Since the acquisition of the site in 2012, Orbit Developments have worked closely with the local authority to deliver a family friendly scheme which will have a positive impact on the local area.”
“We felt it was important to get a mix of high quality brands that would complement one another so we invested a lot of time and money to ensure the arrival of Costa Coffee, Aldi, Chiquito’s and now Superbowl UK at Linkway West, St Helens.”
The new Superbowl UK facility will create 35 jobs once open and the company says local trades will be used through the fit-out process.
Superbowl UK director Kate Quaintance-Blackford said:
“Superbowl UK St Helens presents us with an opportunity to bring our distinctive brand of family entertainment into Merseyside, where we believe it will prove extremely popular.
“We have been extremely encouraged by the enthusiastic response to our nearby Widnes centre, and are delighted to be able to expand our presence within the locality.
“We are one of very few companies in the UK offering all of these facilities under one roof and, because of that, we’re very confident about the success of the new site here in St Helens.”
