Did you know that Greenville has a new family entertainment venue? Main Event Greenville, SC opens July 14th, 2023 at noon. You’ll find this fun venue right next to Top Golf, off of Garlington Road right near the I-85 Pelham Road exit.
Main Event offers bowling, laser tag, tons of arcade games, and virtual reality games, a restaurant, a bar with billiards tables, and lots more. They’ll be hosting birthday parties, events, and special deals like Kids Eat Free on Tuesdays. We visited Main Event before opening and got the scoop on all the family fun.
Reserve your laser tag time and then get ready to seek out your opponents as you creep and dart around the laser tag room’s maze-like walls and openings. My whole family agreed this was their favorite thing to do at Main Event, even for a mom who hasn’t played laser tag in at least 2 decades.
Also, for the official record, I scored higher than all my kids and my husband. My teens were in disbelief that Mom beat them.
Anyway, the laser tag was lots of fun, the equipment was easy to use, and the room was mainly flat so maneuvering was easy.
Bowling at Main Event
You could play a standard game of bowling, or you can mix things up with a huge variety of themed games and special challenges. Terrible bowlers? That’s ok. We played one challenge where the goal was actually to hit the lit-up bumper with the ball at specific places in order to double or triple the points earned for pins knocked down.
The bowling alley offers an open alley with lots of lanes, and then also a more private room with 4 lanes. These lanes were much quieter and our group enjoyed the break from the noise of the venue.
You won’t need tokens or coins for this arcade. Load your Main Event game card and swipe at each game you’d like to play.
