Scottie’s Fun Spot has new toys
QUINCY — Scottie’s Fun Spot unveiled its new cosmic laser-tag arena and nine-hole indoor miniature golf course Thursday.
“We’re excited to offer these new features to the community,” said Jeff Scott, owner and operator of the entertainment center that opened in 2010. “We’ve always tried to reimagine fun while showing our guests a great time.”
Black lights and fog machines add a different kind of level of excitement to the site’s newest additions. Scott describes the overall site as “three acres of fun.”
Scottie’s Fun Center annually attracts abut 50,000 customers at its 8000 Broadway setting, according to Scott.
“I’m amazed what Scottie’s Fun Spot has accomplished,” said Bruce Guthrie, president and CEO of the Quincy Area Chamber of Commerce. “What it provides so important to our community.”
Scott provided a tour of the new features to local dignitaries before it opened to the public.
“I think our new cosmic laser tag arena and indoor miniature golf course have the most modern equipment, incredible artwork and tons of fun surprises that our community will really enjoy,” Scott said.
Scott said the “Galactic Conflict” theme of the laser tag arena will offer a “new look and feel” that also includes new interactive props, target integration and maze layout.
The 2,000 square-foot laser tag arena was designed and installed by Creative Works and features new bases, a wall-mounted drone and target-integrated fuel tanks, supply crates and alien creature signature prop. Creative Works is headquartered in Indianapolis, Ind.
Scottie’s used some of its former laser tag arena space to introduce the new new nine-hole miniature golf course. Also designed and installed by Creative Works, the new black light miniature golf course takes on a “Pirate Treasure” theme with visual and challenging props and hazards.
The roots of Scottie’s Fun Spot can be traced to 1939 when the Scott family opened a roller-skating rink, which over the years has expended to to include outdoor miniature golf, karting, bumper cars, Ball-O-City, mini-lane bowling, laser frenzy and arcade games.
Scottie’s is currently operating under summer hours, which includes 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday/Saturday and noon to 7 p.m. Sunday.
