Eat.Bowl.Play at Main Event in Tempe

Get ready Arizona, the newest family fun center is opening TODAY in Tempe.  EVMG had the opportunity to play at Main Event a couple days during their big pre-opening event.

Main Event is located in Tempe, right next to Ikea at Warner and I-10 and opens today to the public. This is the first location outside of Texas.  Main Event is huge in Texas!!  Main Event is a one stop place for kids {and adults}.


We had a blast playing laser tag {yours truly beat the pants off of everyone}, hubbyman and my 9yo attempted the gravity ropes, we played a round of bowling {I probably should use the bumpers…just saying}, and of course we played tons and tons of fabulous video games.  There was no shortage of things to do.  We were there for 4 hours and probably could have spent another 3-4 hours playing.

We also were able to sample their menu and items from the bar.  It was nice to see a local beer at the bar…alright, hubbyman was really happy.  I tried the Main Event Breeze.  I thought that since it was named after the place that I should give it a try.  It was delicious and reminded me of my honeymoon in Jamaica.
