St Helens, get set to be ‘Bowled’ over by new Superbowl UK Entertainment Complex

Article date - 23 May 2017

A major new Bowling and Family Entertainment complex is to open within St Helens' new leisure and retail development Linkway West in Spring 2018.
West Point

The new facility, to be called Superbowl UK St Helens, will provide 12 state-of-the-art Ten-Pin Bowling Lanes, Crazy Club Soft Play Centre, Formidable ‘Ninja Warrior’ trampoline style assault course, Amusement Arcade area along with a stylish food diner and boutique lounge sports bar.

These attractions will join supermarket giant Aldi and coffee chain Costa Coffee on the development. The site occupies a prominent location within the town centre, having a dual frontage to the main inner ring road dual carriageway, Link Way West and Westfield Street, reinforcing its position as an entertainment hot spot for the leisure development.

Behind the new development is growing UK leisure business Superbowl UK which has just signed a 25-year lease on a 24,000 square foot section of the Leisure Village.

Superbowl UK plans to invest more than £1.8 million on a fit out at St Helens between now and the planned opening in Spring 2018.

The company is led by Director Kate Quaintance-Blackford who said: “Superbowl UK St Helens presents us with an opportunity to bring our distinctive brand of family entertainment into Merseyside, where we believe it will prove extremely popular. We have been extremely encouraged by the enthusiastic response to our nearby Widnes centre, and are delighted to be able to expand our presence within the locality.

“We are one of very few companies in the UK offering all of these facilities under one roof and, because of that, we’re very confident about the success of the new site here in St Helens.”

Superbowl UK shall not only be using local trades through the fit out process but also create 35 new jobs once open.
