The Christiana Fashion Center in North Delaware will be getting a new experiential retail tenant on March 6.

Bowling-centered entertainment chain Main Event will open its first Delaware location then in the shopping center between New Castle and Newark, the News Journal reports.

Main Event, which dubs itself the "the nation’s fastest-growing bowling-anchored dining and entertainment destination," has over 40 locations, many of which have opened in the last two years, according to the News Journal. Its 51K SF location at the far end of Christiana Fashion Center will have 22 bowling lanes, over 120 video games, laser tag, a gravity ropes course and zip line, billiards and shuffleboard.

Christiana Fashion Center owner Allied Property built the shell of the property and turned the interior build-out over to Main Event in the fall. The space will also have conference rooms with internet and audio-visual technology for corporate events and a full-service bar and restaurant.
