Scene 75 opened its entertainment complex doors on August 25 to many excited customers of all ages — from toddlers in the 12-and-under bounce room, to teens enjoying the gaming venue, to adults sipping beverages in the restaurant area.
Some, like brothers Alex and Aidan Post, were willing to come from over an hour away just to experience the Grand Opening fun. The Olentangy Shanahan Middle School students are Scene 75 veterans, having visited other locations multiple times, including the one in Dayton.
The Posts said that the Dayton location is larger than the one in Brunswick, but the Brunswick location still offers just as much fun. The brothers said the Brunswick destination was worth the hour-and-a half-travel time from their hometown of Lewis Center, Ohio.
Robert Sakosky, manager of the Brunswick Scene 75, said he sees the entertainment center as a destination “here to cure other cities from boredom.”
The draw of Scene 75 is sure to be all the various activities like Virtual Reality, Go-Karts, Bumper Cars, double-story Laser Tag, and more all under one roof and open year-round.
Scene 75 has not only fun, but flavor with its Food Truck Alley. The Food Truck Alley is an area owned by Scene 75, but run by several business like The River Dog Café, Proper Pig Smokehouse, Boca Loca Burrito Factory, and Sauced Wood Fire Pizza. Each business has its own food truck-shaped shop window, where a popular portion of their menu is available for sale to hungry customers.
Scene 75 is still looking for new employees. They require all workers to be at least 16 years old, and they “must be willing to have fun all the time,” according to Sakosky. Everyone working on Opening Night was indeed smiling, and all employees seemed to be having as much fun as the customers were having experiencing all Scene 75 offers.
