The Sports Arena amasses video games, billiards tables, bowling lanes, and large-screen TVs into a 30,000-square-foot epicenter of engaging activities and entertaining sporting events. An arcade accrues more than 60 types of game, challenging players’ abilities to hit free throws with NBA Hoops Bonus, combat foes with fighting games, and emotionally get out of speeding tickets with car-racing games. Pool sharks chalk cues before adroitly sinking eight balls at one of 17 tables ($12/hour), pin-pummeling patrons chuck bowling balls down 20 slick lanes ($4/game; $2/shoe rental), and putters tap balls into a mini-golf ($6) course’s 18 holes. While the Beach Hut’s barkeeps pour delectable libations (not included with today’s deal) inside a tropical-themed setting, the sports bar surrounds imbibers with walls adorned in athletic memorabilia. Sixty TVs broadcast the latest matches, including two 9’x12’ monster TVs that have to be restrained by muzzles.
The Sports Arena
Before they discover the wealth of games hidden just past the front entrance, visitors to The Sports Arena are met with an outdoor challenge on the undulating greens of its 18-hole outdoor miniature golf course. After putting their way to recreational immortality, visitors can check out indoor activities; pool sharks roam freely among the billiard hall's tables, and the arcade’s vintage and modern games frequently spit forth tickets redeemable for prizes. Good times continue to roll at the bowling alley, which hosts casual and competitive frames, private games in the VIP lounge, and Moonlight Bowling sessions until 1 a.m. every Friday and Saturday. Visitors in need of a recharge can grab a bite at Pat's Pizza's onsite eatery.
