AMARILLO, Texas (KAMR/KCIT) - Cinergy Amarillo opens tomorrow and we have a sneak peek at the new facility.
Cinergy features 18 lanes of upscale bowling, a multi-level laser tag arena, an elevated ropes course with zip line, and a fully loaded game floor rich with over 100 interactive games.
The new cinema and entertainment facility was first proposed in October 2015 and an incentives package was approved by the Amarillo City Council for $25 million. The agreement requires the company to make a minimum investment in the proposed facility of $25 million and provide 100 full-time jobs.
The facility was originally scheduled for a 2017 opening but was pushed back to the fall of 2018.
At that time, Cinergy CEO Jeff Benson said,
We originally anticipated an opening date of late 2017; however, we felt the need to revise the construction plans after the highly successful opening in Odessa late last fall. Cinergy in Amarillo will now feature multiple escape rooms, a second bar, more bowling lanes than originally planned, an outdoor patio featuring fire pits and an indoor/outdoor bar, and more theatre seating -- all still in a 90,000sf building.
In August of this year, Cinergy began hiring and was looking to fill over 250 positions at the facility.
Cinergy Amarillo is located at 9201 Cinergy Sq.
Hours for the new facility are:
- Monday- Thursday it will be open from 11:30 a.m. until midnight.
- Friday it will be open from 11:30 a.m. until 2 a.m.
- Saturday it will be opened from 9:30 a.m. until 2 a.m.
