Main Event Selects North Fort Worth Site For DFW Expansion


New location is one of 8 new center openings planned by June of 2016


Main Event Entertainment, the fastest-growing bowling- anchored entertainment center in America, with 19 centers in five states, is excited to announce its newest location in North Fort Worth – a much anticipated arrival of the latest prototype to the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

The location on I-35W between North Tarrant Parkway and Heritage Trace Parkway will be the site of the Plano-based company’s sixth center in the metroplex. Construction is scheduled to begin in the spring with plans to open later this year.

“Our expansion in our home market of Dallas-Fort Worth is an important part of our growth plans, which include eight new center openings by June of 2016,” said Main Event CEO Charlie Keegan. “As the pioneer of bowling-anchored entertainment, we are excited to bring our latest prototype to DFW. The new Fort Worth center will showcase our distinct ‘Eat.Bowl.Play.’ experience at its finest.” 

With centers ranging from 48,000 to 75,000 square feet, Main Event is a unique entertainment and dining destination for people of all ages. Attractions include more than 20 state-of-the-art lanes, a multi-level laser tag arena and a challenging gravity ropes course suspended over a games gallery with more than 100 interactive and virtual games. Dining options feature a chef-inspired menu, specialty pizzas and a full service bar.

With private rooms, complete with full-service catering and the latest A/V technology, Main Event is the ideal venue for special events such as birthday parties, social gatherings and corporate meetings.

Main Event, which opened six centers in new and existing markets in 2014, has plans to open centers in Fort Worth, Kansas City, Phoenix, Chicago, Orlando, Tulsa, Memphis and Albuquerque by June 2016.
