A local operator of large-scale family entertainment centers will open its third Front Range location this week when the Summit Thornton welcomes its first guests on Tuesday.
The Summit, which uses the tag line “Elevated Entertainment,” is a small chain that combines bowling alleys, laser tag facilities, a bar and restaurant and other games and entertainment options under one roof. It has two locations operating today, one in Windsor and another in northern Colorado Springs.
Its 50,000-square-foot Thornton facility will celebrate its grand opening 11 a.m. Tuesday, according to its Facebook page. At 580 E. 144th Ave., just east of the 144th Avenue-Interstate 25 interchange, it will feature 24 lanes of bowling, a 5,000-square-foot arcade and game room, a two-story laser tag arena, 175-seat restaurant, VIP area and more, according to a company news release.

The facility will employ 225 people combined on a full-time and part-time basis.
Thornton and the surrounding north metro neighborhood have become hotbeds for family focused entertainment as the population in the area continues to grow. Water World water park and a Boondocks Food & Fun are also along the north I-25 corridor. Topgolf, an updated, high-tech take on the driving range with an existing facility in Centennial, broke ground on a Thornton location in October, according to the Denver Business Journal.
