Avondale’s Main Event

Avondale’s Main Event reopened May 22, but with COVID-19 safety guidelines for social distancing in place.

As more and more businesses in Arizona reopen, the Avondale Main Event opened  its doors Friday, May 22.

Avondale’s house of games features 26 bowling lanes, video games, laser tag, gravity ropes, billiards and shuffleboard.

Main Events around the Valley closed in mid-March due to concerns surrounding COVID-19. Following the guidance of local and state authorities, they are returning with new enhanced health and safety measures.

“The health and safety of our team and customers is our top concern while reopening,” Maine Event CEO Chris Morris said.

New measures include enhanced sanitation measures for equipment, markers to promote social distancing at different activities, and the inclusion of sanitation stations throughout the facilities. Masks and gloves will also be available for guests who would prefer to use them.

Employees will have daily temperature checks and are required to wear masks. 

Main Event, which is a popular place for hosting group events, also plans on reducing group size for reservations and limiting guest capacity in its centers to ensure better social distancing. 

Following Gov. Doug Ducey’s announcements that businesses in Arizona may begin to reopen, Main Event implemented a new plan called “Play Smart, Play Safe” to adapt its facilities for social distancing.

As new safety measures have been put in place, Main Event has been soliciting feedback from customers.

“The feedback has been a majority positive, and people are excited to be back,” Morris said.

Morris added he hopes “families will be able to enjoy their time at Main Event and strengthen their bonds that they have built over the past few months.”
