The South Sound just gained another entertainment center for all ages, and you can find it in Puyallup. Round1 will open its doors on Saturday, Aug. 13 at the South Hill Mall at 3500 S. Meridian. The first 300 customers who attend the grand opening at 10 a.m. that day will receive a Round1 t-shirt. The facility will be next to Macy’s. Round1 offers several arcade games, bowling lanes, billiards, pingpong, music and more. Visitors don’t pay an entrance fee. Instead, they pay for the games they choose to play.
The 52,000 square foot facility also has a lounge area where patrons can eat and drink. They’ll serve pizza, chicken tenders, mozzarella sticks, wings, burgers, soft drinks, draft beer, wine and liquor, according to the company’s website. Plans for private party rooms with karaoke are in the works.
