Entertainment Complex Sold for $2.15 Million
A commercial building near the Toowoomba CBD which has been home to the Garden City Lanes ten pin bowling alley has been sold for $2.15 million to new owners who plan to remodel the site into a major entertainment complex.
The 1500 sqm building on a land area of 4377 sqm at 200 Herries Street, Toowoomba, has been sold to Bazinga Entertainment Centre in an off-market deal negotiated by Mark Wynhoven of Ray White Commercial Toowoomba.
Mark Wynhoven said Bazinga Entertainment Centre has plans to remodel the site into a ‘family friendly’ entertainment complex, which will include a laser tag arena.
“The new owners have a relationship with the world’s leading laser tag manufacturer and look forward to creating a laser tag arena with the latest technology,” he said.
Bazinga Entertainment Centre Director, Adrian Loone, said the company had major plans for the site, which will retain the bowling alley.
“We want to create a family friendly centre with entertainment for all age groups,” he said.
“It will be a place for all the community to come to socialise and have parties as well as corporate functions.”
Mr Loone said work would start soon on an amusement arcade and a two storey laser tag arena of up to 900 sqm.
“Our plans also include amusements such as bumper cars as well as day and night mini golf, while an ice skating rink is also being considered,” he said.
“The bowling alley will remain open while the remodelling is carried out but with reduced capacity.”
Mark Wynhoven said the entertainment complex was positioned less than 300 metres from Toowoomba’s CBD and enjoyed easy access to the Warrego and New England Highways.
“The site provides fantastic convenience and accessibility, and I’m sure this will be one of the great attractions for the community of Toowoomba and the Darling Downs,” he said.
