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!

We are excited to announce that we are likely to be approved for funding to build a brand new family fun center and sports complex inside the city limits of Columbus!

Recently, we received some positive and exciting news, prompting us to cancel plans to close our doors by the end of May. Within the past couple of months, we have been all but approved for a loan to cover the cost of construction of a new facility. But, there is still one financial condition we'll need to meet to finalize the loan, and we're asking for your help to get us over the finish line.

In order to finalize the loan, we'll need enough cash on hand to make payment towards the loan while the new facility is being built. The good news is that this final hurdle is much easier to cover, and Columbus area families will be able to have a significant impact on helping us finish the deal. Obviously, we continue to have discussions with investors, who we will rely most heavily on for reaching our goal. However, with us being this close to finally breaking ground, we don't want to take any chances of falling short, and are asking for your help.

We are continuing our huge sale on season passes for the new facility, and need Columbus area families to purchase these passes to help move this project forward. These passes are good for unlimited roller skating, unlimited skate rentals, unlimited games of laser tag, and unlimited sports leagues for every member of the family for just $25/month (+ tax). Season pass holders will also receive discounts for birthday parties booked at our facility.

All passes purchased by the end of June will receive a second year at no additional charge. That means two years of unlimited fun for the price of only one year. This also means that when we open our doors next year, your first year at the new facility won't cost you a dime! The projected price of a season pass at the new facility will be around $450/year, so you'll save $150 by ordering a pass today (and get two years out of it). Even if you don't want to use your pass now at Wishbones, you'll still be saving $150 over waiting until we officially announce the new facility, and your pass will be good for the new place.

If you are a family in the Columbus area who would like to see something similar to a "Skate Daze" or "Amazing Pizza Machine" right here in Columbus, or are looking for more sports and multi-purpose facilities here in town, you need to throw your support behind our efforts. Pick up a pass for your family today, and encourage others to join you. As mentioned earlier, we have one final condition to meet to be approved for this loan to build a new facility, and don't want to fall short on clearing that final hurdle. We appreciate your support.

The projected cost of this new facility will be around $1,200,000. During construction, and before we can even begin operating out of the new facility, we will need around $300,000 cash on hand to cover down payments and monthly loan payments. We need to move quickly to avoid losing out on the funding progress we've made, and if we want to meet our goal of breaking ground this Summer or Fall.

As previously discussed, here is what we have in mind for the new facility:

Family Fun Center:
Larger roller skating rink, more public skate sessions, more birthday party availability, larger laser tag arena, more arcade games, more prizes, bounce houses, Pro Shop, and eventually Go Karts, miniature golf, and other outdoor activities

Sports Complex:
Our new facility will also feature an indoor artificial turf field. We will offer baseball and softball training facilities, and leagues, tournaments, and practice facilities for the following sports: soccer, football, roller hockey, dodgeball, basketball, volleyball, and others. We will also have outdoor courts, fields, and batting cages for the majority of these sports when the weather is nicer.

Restaurant/Sports Bar
As an added convenience for your visit, we'll also finally be able to offer a full menu of food and drinks. This part of the facility will be open throughout the day, and will compliment the two multi-purpose arenas of our facility.

...And So Much More!
Because this new facility will have a wide-open floor plan and additional space, we will be able to host so many different events and activities indoors and out with a much more flexible schedule than we can at Wishbones. It will be a true multi-purpose community center. Regional sports tournaments and leagues, concerts, receptions, trade shows, and a nearly unlimited list of special events will be possible at this new facility. All of these activities will bring people to Columbus, helping support other area businesses in the process!
