TYLER, TX (KLTV) - A new Tyler entertainment venue is set to feature bowling, billiards, laser tag and zip lining.

The center is set to open in late 2017 in The Village South shopping center on South Broadway Avenue in Tyler, according to Cinergy Entertainment Group, Inc.

"We're very excited to be opening a bowling and entertainment center here in the Tyler area," said Jamie Benson, Cinergy's co-founder and Executive Vice President. "We cannot wait for to the community to enjoy what Cinergy has to offer."

The venue will be the company's fourth entertainment location in the state, Cinergy Co-founder and CEO Jeffrey Benson said. The group plans to open other locations in Amarillo and Odessa late next year.

"With Cinergy's multi-venue entertainment components our concept is always expanding, this location will be our first in which we are specifically focused on bowling and family entertainment. With Studio Movie Grill across the street, we hope to complement each other and become the premium entertainment destination for the area," Jeffrey Benson said.

The Tyler location will have more than 20 bowling lanes and offer glow-in-the-dark bowling. It will include a full-service bar, dining options with a chef-driven menu, multiple event rooms, billiard tables, a game floor, a redemption store, a Laser Tag arena, and Sky Walker with a zip line. Cinergy said the zip line course will feature "a gravity-defying, black light overhead ropes course."

"Tyler is the perfect community for a family entertainment center, the area has dense family demographics with strong economic stability, we can't think of a better place to open our family entertainment center," said President and COO Neil Hupfauer.

The Dallas-based company is privately owned by the Benson family, founders of Movie Tavern.
