Hollywood Bowl has opened a new £2.8m bowling alley in York Community Stadium, featuring 24 lanes, an amusement arcade, redemption area and American diner and bar.
The 28,000 sq ft venue forms part of the stadium’s Huntingdon leisure complex, and creates 30 new jobs across management and hospitality.
“We’re excited to bring the iconic Hollywood bowling experience to the people of York,” centre manager Andy Peacock told the York Press. “The centre is head to toe fun.”
“We’re able to offer customers a fantastic family entertainment experience with the opening of this latest-generation Hollywood Bowl.”
The opening follows the recent refurbishment of Hollywood Bowl’s Carlisle site, and reflects the new health and safety measures put in place across the group’s estate to reduce the transmission of Coronavirus.
Hollywood Bowl venues now feature a pre-booking system, with groups limited to a maximum of six.
There is increased space between amusement machines, and every other lane closed to allow for social distancing.
“As a leading tenpin bowling operator in the UK, we have to lead in health and safety considerations as well as great-value entertainment,” said CEO Stephen Burns.
“We have received excellent feedback from our first customers at York.”
