Kingpinz Social has a wide variety of unique ways for people, young and old, to have fun, so it’s no surprise Forum readers gave it the honor of Best Arcade/Video Game Store.

The 50,000-square foot entertainment facility is the first in the area to offer HyperBowling, an interactive update to traditional bowling that includes elements like moving targets and variable game types, the Kingpinz website said.

If bowling isn’t quite your speed, a large arcade features a wide variety of virtual reality games. You can also gather a group and play laser tag or take on one of their four escape rooms.

Kingpinz also boasts a pair of restaurants, a concession stand and a bar to fuel the fun, plus event spaces for groups as large as 125.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
