Some links to end the day on, mostly regarding facility news

October 1, 2009


I have a bit of catching up to do so I am going to consolidate a couple of links that were sent to me by Kevin Williams of The Stinger Report into one post, which is made easier by the fact that most of the links have something to do with one another.

First off, an amusement facility in Pennsylvania known as the Coliseum Entertainment Megaplex has been saved by the credit union that the business deals with. The business had filed for bankruptcy last year but thanks to this move they are able to continue on. Hopefully they will be able to bring in more sales and keep going as the complex does have an arcade. You can find that news here.

Secondly, the competition in Dubai continues to grow as what is being called the “world’s largest indoor family theme park” opens it’s doors in Zabeel park. Called Stargate, the facility stargatedubaiboasts 400,000 sq. ft. of space where the spaceship designs spans over five zones. In addition to offering a gigantic soft play area, go karts and more they also have features that focus on edutainment for kids. Over 4 million visitors are expected to visit the site per year and if you ever plan a trip to Dubai this gives you more more place to check out. More details can be found here or you can visit the official website for the Stargate facility.

And for our last link, if you are into following what big celebrities are always up to, Brad Pitt was seen with his son playing some arcade games at the Dave and Busters in Times Square. I’m not sure if it’s hilarious or sad that someone is paid to watch a celebrities every move and to see whether or not they win the game that they are playing. Of course me linking to this gives them incentive to keep it up I suppose.  Link
