Hollywood Bowl Group, one of the UK’s leading leisure operators has continued its 2018 investment programme with the £400,000 refurbishment of Hollywood Bowl in Heron Gate Retail Park, Taunton.

The refurbishment sees the Group continue to lead innovation in the bowling industry and marks its third investment of 2018.

Steve Burns, CEO, Hollywood Bowl Group said:

“Refurbishments such as Taunton are helping Hollywood Bowl revolutionise bowling, offering customers a fully immersive entertainment experience in a premium environment.

“Our investment programme is advancing well and continues to deliver a strong increase in trade. All of our investments have received positive customer feedback and we’re expecting Taunton to follow this trend.”

The 22 lane centre, which includes four VIP lanes, has been fully re-designed and now features plush new furnishings, contemporary American décor and upgraded music and lighting.

With a brand-new Hollywood Diner, the company is placing extra focus on its food and drink offering. Gourmet burgers, hotdogs, freshly made shakes served in retro milk bottles and signature desserts now feature on the newly-developed menu, as well as speciality house cocktails served from a new American-style bar.

In addition, the centre’s amusement area has received an upgrade and now boasts industry-leading games such as Jurassic Park, Walking Dead and MOTO GP Bikes, and retro games like Crossy Road, Pacman, and Space Invaders.
