Chris Pronger helps construct the brand new Primary Occasion household leisure heart in Chesterfield

Former blues player Chris Pronger was also on hand to check out the games and the food.
He also signed bowling pins (pictured left) and other items for an auction the facility is holding for charity.
The party was a great opportunity to get a taste of a venue that will be great fun for families. There is a lot to do for families.
They also brought a lot of food with a special emphasis on desserts, as well as a wide range of alcoholic beverages. The dishes included a huge sundae and a special s’mores dessert. The portions of these ice cream desserts were quite large.
The choice of alcohol and music will also be attractive to adults. If Sunday night was a real clue, there was a lot of staff and everyone was friendly and ready to help newcomers and explain things to them.
The nearly 50,000-square-foot venue features 22 state-of-the-art bowling lanes, each with unique technology and luxurious seating. Bowling fans simply choose to use it as a bowling alley, or families split up and some play the games and others bowl while they meet in the restaurant area.
There are games and virtual reality experiences throughout the facility.
The main event is an exciting venue with loud music and bright lights. There are flashing lights and neon everywhere.
There were at least 500 people at the VIP party and it really didn’t seem very crowded. They handed out 400 “VIP” lanyards and those were all gone and a few more people arrived. It’s very spacious inside.
One thing that looked fun was the soaring gravity ropes (pictured on the right).
There is also multi-level laser tag. You play laser tag, but on multiple stories. There is billiards as well as a full-service kitchen and bar with iconic food and drinks like a Big Fun Super Sundae and special Shirley Temples.
