A NEW Tenpin entertainment centre and bowling alley will open on Friday, March 29, in time for the Easter holidays.

Located in Chester Retail Park on Old Seals Way, the new location replaces Sports Direct and Thrive and is spread over two floors with a range of thrilling activities on offer.

Guests can enjoy bowling on one of 28 lanes, as well as two karaoke rooms, state-of-the-art arcade games, pool tables, table tennis and more.

The venue also features four escape rooms by award-winning Houdini’s, and a futuristic laser tag arena. Tenpin Chester will also have a fully licensed bar on each floor, serving a great range of drinks including cocktails and mocktails, not to mention a tasty menu with pizza, nachos and chicken wings if you’re feeling hungry. Both bar areas will also be showing the latest sporting fixtures on Sky Sports and TNT.

The centre is also set to bring approximately 45 new jobs to the city with a recruitment drive currently underway.

Laura Fee, General Manager at Tenpin Chester, said: "The opening of our brand-new Chester site marks our 54th Tenpin venue and we are really excited about it. Tenpin Chester is jam-packed with exciting activities – whether you’re looking for a unique date spot, a night out with friends or looking for ways to entertain the family during the Easter holidays, we’re looking forward to welcoming you!

"We pride ourselves on being a hub for the local community, providing them with unforgettable experiences and lasting memories. We hope our latest entertainment centre delivers exactly that.
