The Ten Pin Fun Center is still a few finishing touches away from opening, but one sign that the end of construction is near is set to take place next week as the entertainment center is looking to hire over 100 employees.

The hiring event is sure to stir up excitement amongst community members for the center’s spring opening, who have waited patiently since construction began on the 52,000-square foot project in July 2017.

The entertainment center was originally expected to be completed in February 2018 at the latest, but then it was announced that August would be the month. From there the opening date was pushed back to December, then to the end of February, with developers now settling on a spring opening, rather than a specific date.

When finished, the Ten Pin Fun Center will include 34 bowling lanes, a 4,000-square foot laser tag room with attached staging and vesting rooms, an arcade with 75 games and a prize redemption center, a separate bar for bowlers and a sports bar and restaurant that will include billiards, shuffleboard, outdoor bocce ball courts and an outdoor dining patio. The facility will also have seven banquet rooms that can host small birthday parties or large events.

It was recently announced that the name of the restaurant inside of the Ten Pin Fun Center will be Deadwood Social.

Beginning Tuesday, the center will be hiring restaurant hosts, servers, bartenders, cooks, bowling and gaming hosts, game technicians, bowling mechanics and more, with 125 positions to fill. Those interested in applying must be at least 16 years old, and those who are under 18 will also require a work permit. Applicants should come with two forms of identification and a resume in hand and be prepared for an interview.

The hiring event will take place from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday through Friday in the Ten Pin Fun Center parking lot, located at 3700 Countryside Dr.
