New bowling centre a high point of entertainment and puzzles

New bowling centre a high point of entertainment and puzzles
September 13, 2015

Strike Bowling has opened its 12th bowling entertainment centre in the newly refurbished entertainment and F&B zone at level 1 in Melbourne’s Highpoint shopping centre

13 years after the opening of the first Strike Bowling centre, a statement from Strike explains that with Strike Highpoint “we have created a unique new precinct that will complement the existing family and entertainment precincts reflecting community culture and soul.”

The new centre offers 10 bowling lanes, a laser tag arena, pool tables, private karaoke rooms, event space and three new Escapism puzzle rooms.

With space for over 400, Strike Highpoint can cater for corporate parties, team building and private events, backed by a cocktail bar and gourmet kitchen with food and beverage packages for any style of event.

The Escapism rooms cater for the increasingly popular trend in puzzle rooms offering challenging and interactive real life games where teams are trapped in a room, with an hour in which to find a way out. Teams need to find hidden objects, solve riddles, crack clues and beat the clock to escape.

Strike Bowling will also be adding Escapism rooms at other centres in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane, while sister business SkyZone is set to open Sky Climb, a new concept in indoor climbing at the Sky Zone Trampoline Park in the Sydney suburb of Alexandria later this week.
