Main Event Entertainment  will make its Delaware debut at 2900 Fashion Center to Christiana Mall on Tuesday, March 6.

The new 50,000-square-foot center features 22  bowling lanes with unique technology and luxury seating, laser tag, a gravity ropes course and zip line, billiards, shuffleboard and a games gallery featuring nearly 120 interactive and virtual video games. 

Main Event will host an invitation-only VIP event that will include facility tours, food, drinks and games on Sunday, March 4, from 3- 6 p.m.

Also during the event, Main Event will present a $2,500 check to the Brennen School, Delaware Autism Program. When  Main Event officially opens its doors to the public on March 6, the celebration will continue with a  “lane- christening” ribbon-cutting ceremony at 11:30 a.m.

“We are excited to expand into Delaware and to introduce our one-of-a-kind brand to everyone in the Wilmington area,” said Darin Harper, Interim CEO and CFO of Main Event Entertainment. “There’s nothing like Main Event in Delaware, and we have found the perfect location in Wilmington for its debut. We’re extremely proud to be joining this great community and we can’t wait to show off our unique combination of food and fun when we open the doors to our new center on March 6.”


A release stated that the complex will have a “chef-inspired casual dining experience – with items like wings, loaded nachos or oven-baked artisan pizza in a full-service American-fare grill as well as a bar with hand-crafted cocktails.

The center also offers fully equipped private meeting spaces with the latest audio-visual technology, full-service catering, free Wi-Fi and other features for corporate meetings, team-building exercises, holiday parties and other gatherings both large and small.
