HUNTSVILLE, Ala., April 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Stars and Strikes Family Entertainment has broken ground on its Huntsville, AL location and is on schedule to open in September of this year. They recently received a building permit from the City of Huntsville, and have begun construction on the facility. The Georgia-based company recently announced the development of a new family entertainment center in Huntsville, marking their tenth location and their first location outside the State of Georgia. At completion, the facility will have over 100 local employees.
The 54,000 square foot facility located at 930 Old Monrovia Road NW - convenient to Interstate 565- will house 24 bowling lanes, 8 of which are VIP lanes in the signature Main St Lounge. The new Huntsville location will offer fun and unique bowling leagues for all ages and skill levels. In addition to bowling, Stars and Strikes will feature a 7,000 square foot arcade that will house over 100 of the latest and greatest video and redemption games. The arcade, by far the company's largest to date, will also feature a prize store where players can browse for prizes that can be purchased with tickets won on the wide selection of redemption games. The facility will also include a two-story laser tag arena, bumper cars, the 7/10 Grille restaurant and a large full-service bar surrounded by big screen TVs for sports viewing.
The new Huntsville facility also includes multiple private party rooms for events, highlighted by an upscale corporate event room that will seat 200 with a full private bar. The Main St Lounge features VIP bowling lanes in an upscale setting that is ideal for corporate and group events of all sizes. Stars and Strikes excels at providing deluxe, chef-crafted cuisine in a fun-filled atmosphere. Corporate and private event guests initially visit for the fun, only to be pleasantly surprised at the quality and taste of the private event buffets and food packages.
"Opening the first Stars and Strikes in Alabama is a milestone for our company. Huntsville's large population of close-knit families makes the city an ideal location for us," said Chris Albano, managing partner and co-founder of Stars and Strikes. "Stars and Strikes is known in Georgia as the ultimate destination for family fun. We will extend this reputation to Huntsville Alabama, and are really excited about the addition of our escape rooms and large corporate event room to this facility. There will be something for everyone."
The Company's newest attraction, Escapology, will be prominently featured in the new facility. Escapology is an entertaining, interactive amusement concept where you use your powers of deduction to solve a mystery. Our room themes ("Budapest Express" on a train, "Under Pressure" in a submarine, and "The Code" in an apartment), will immerse you in the experience of a real-life mystery adventure game designed for small groups of friends, families and co-workers. Your team is on the clock and must solve the puzzles and figure out the clues to earn your freedom and "Escape from the Room".
The new Stars and Strikes will offer affordable birthday party packages that are custom designed to accommodate budgets of any size. Stars and Strikes takes great pride in delivering a fantastically fun birthday party experience for kids of all ages that is easy and affordable for parents. Stars and Strikes was voted the #1 birthday party destination in Atlanta by Atlanta Parent magazine in 2016. The private birthday party rooms are ideal for a child's special day.
The Huntsville location will feature the company's well-regarded classic American grill dining concept, the 7/10 Grille. The restaurant will offer fresh, seasonally-inspired cuisine including a variety of appetizers, salads, sandwiches, specialty pizzas and other house-made items. Stars and Strikes has made it a priority to offer food and beverage options that are healthy, delicious and an enhancement to the entire entertainment experience.
