A new family entertainment centre is to open in Luton next month, bolstering the town’s leisure offering just before the school breaks begin to boost the market.
Funtura, a new entertainment centre, is set to open in Luton next month promising fun for all the family featuring a range of arcade games, bumper cars, a soft play area and various amenities.
The destination is the culmination of owner Tony Jiang’s vision for a truly family-focused premises in the town.
Operations of the entertainment area will be overseen by manager Siong Yu, who said: “It is a family entertainment centre, we have a soft play area where children can play and parents can sit close by in the cafe area and still see them playing.
“We have a bumper car area for small children but they are laser shooting bumper cars so instead of bumping each other you shoot lasers at the targets on the cars and if you hit one the car starts spinning, and there will be the games arcade with games for different ages.”
The location of Funtura right in the heart of Luton seems set to profit not only from those with specific visitation plans, but from all potential patrons in the local high-footfall area.
“We chose this location in the town centre because when I go shopping with my wife and children, she goes shopping and the children and I get bored,so the idea is mum can go shopping in peace, and dad and the children can relax and have fun here.
“If they are a family with a toddler and an older sibling, say nine years old, here we are hoping there will be something they will both enjoy.”
Ahead of its opening, Siong added that a great deal of interest in the ven- ture has already been drummed up in the locality with enquiries over concrete opening dates coming in daily.
“It has been a long process and we have put a lot of hard work into it, hopefully it works and people enjoy it. We will also be able to do bookings for parties and functions,” he said.
The entertainment centre will be open from 10am till 6pm in the week and till 7pm at the weekends.
