Bartender Sara Schulz, 21, plays an arcade game in the empty bar at the Galactic Fun Zone on Tuesday. It is empty now, she said, but previous parties have been well attended. She projects it will become more crowded after the bowling alley and ballroom are completed.
In anticipation of the Sept. 9 grand opening of the new Galactic Fun Zone, employees have been completing finishing touches on the facility, preparing big screen TVs and constructing bowling alley floorboards on what will be eight lanes. The facility will also include billiards, laser tag and arcade games.
Galactic Fun Zone manager Adam Schussler walks toward the arcade Tuesday after checking on the construction of the bowling alley and debating the entry fee. He said big screen TVs and eight bowling lanes will help attract MU fans on game days.
Floor and snack bar manager Eric Sterchi, 22, plays pool on a slow Tuesday afternoon Aug. 24. Galactic Fun Zone has been open for three weeks, but Sterchi expects business to pick up after the grand opening Sept. 9.
