ALERT: Wishbones Closed

Columbus Event Center is currently looking for a new home. Our Wishbones location had to be closed as the property was sold and will be torn down in the near future to make room for a new development of some sort. We continue to explore options for relocating and hope to find a new home soon. Please check back for updates. Thank you for over 20 years of support!

Did you know that you can have an immediate impact on our efforts for a new facility? Each family in the Columbus area has an opportunity to help us raise the funds for a brand new family fun center and sports complex, and with your help, we'll be moving next year! Here's a fun way you can help and save big money at the same time!

After our recent article ran in the Columbus Telegram, we have had a number of people reach out with ideas for fundraisers to help us relocate as opposed to closing our doors. We do appreciate all of the ideas and well wishes from the community. But, the fact of the matter is we are needing to raise a significant amount of money in a short period of time.

So, we started a fundraiser of our own through the sale of season passes for the whole family. Your support of this fundraiser will help us in two different ways:

First of all, we are currently visiting with banks on a loan for the construction costs of the new facility. Part of that process involves presenting a business plan that projects a number of different forms of income and expenses for the facility. In that plan, we have declared that we will sell a specific number of these passes. So, by purchasing a family pass now, you can help us validate to lenders (and even investors) that our projections are accurate for the new facility. Obviously, we expect to sell many more passes at the new building than our current one, but if we are able to get close enough to that number at our Wishbones location, it'll provide a huge boost to our efforts for that loan.

Second, if we were able to sell enough family passes, we could greatly reduce the amount of money we'll need from a bank loan. As a small family-owned business, we don't have large bank accounts to back up our efforts. Every penny raised from the sale of these passes will go toward driving down the amount of a bank loan required, which also improves our chances of getting approved for the loan and building that brand-new building in town!

The bottom line is, if we have enough support from families in the Columbus area, we'll be able to validate the projections in our business plan (proving support exists for a new facility) while simultaneously raising dollars to drive down the amount needed through a bank loan. Together, your support of this fundraiser can help guarantee our success in these efforts.

In exchange, your whole family gets unlimited roller skating and skate rental AND unlimited sports leagues for everyone for one year. That's 52 weeks of free skating admission for everyone in the family. And, each member of the family can play in up to three indoor soccer seasons, four roller hockey seasons, and four youth dodgeball sessions with this pass.

With your support now, we'll be able to relocate into a brand new facility, inside city limits, with the following new features:

  • Larger skating rink (more than double the current size)
  • Artificial indoor turf field
  • Restaurant/sports bar
  • Full-size laser tag arena
  • Space for more arcade games and large prize counter
  • Bounce houses
  • Outdoor turf fields and courts
  • Batting cages (indoor and outdoor)
  • Go Karts
...and so much more!

Please consider supporting our family pass fundraiser. We have four different payment options to help fit your budget, and your support is a one-time commitment. Or, if you only need a pass for one child for one full year of roller skating, consider a FUN PASS. Or, pick up a LEAGUE PASS if you have a child interested in only unlimited indoor soccer, roller hockey, and/or dodgeball leagues.

As an added bonus, if you choose to support this fundraiser we'll give you the option to purchase another pass at the brand new facility (once it's built) at the same price. That'll be a lot more sports (ten or more programs) and entertainment options for the same low price. But, that is a decision you can make next year as we open the doors to our new facility.

Thanks again for your help, Columbus. Spread the word, buy your pass today, and let's make this happen (and have lots of fun getting there)!
