This weekend in Freehold, New Jersey, iPlay America is expanding its cornucopia of entertainment wonders with the Grand Opening of Bill’s Garage! This expansive new adventure zone is a garage-theme playland featuring engaging delights for fun seekers of all ages. In Bill’s Garage, you can play Skeeball and NBA Hoops Basketball, plus Angry Birds, Ice Ball FX Alley Bowler, Zombie Snatcher, Dual Monster Drop Xtreme, Harpoon Lagoon, and many others. However, the main attractions are the Freedom Rider Spinning Coaster, the Sky Trails Ropes Course, and the Sky Tykes Ropes Course.
“The Freedom Rider is an amazing attraction and the new ropes course, which is the largest indoor ropes course in New Jersey, gives our guests a place to climb rain or shine! It provides us an excellent opportunity to expand our party packages and offer new team building events to our corporate clients,” enthused Jessica Schwartz, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for iPlay America.
Bob McDaid, CEO of iPlay America expressed, “Our guests let us know what they like and what they want, and we listen. We’ve developed exciting new spaces, rides, and expanded iPlay America to almost four acres of indoor family-friendly fun.”
Accompanied by Danny iPlay, iPlay America’s mascot, Jessica told the gathering of press at the inaugural event, “I play America opened on 11/11/11 at 11:11 a.m. CEO and founder Bob McDaid knew that it was just the beginning for us. We have continued to grow and develop since opening our doors five years ago. Our restaurant has expanded, many games have changed, and our concerts and our events have grown. We’ve become a sought after space in New Jersey for concerts, events, expos, and trade shows.”
Bill’s Garage is the final installation of a three-part expansion that began with The Grind Coffee Company and Warehouse 100.
“Our guest told us what they wanted and one of those things was a place to get coffee,” Jessica continued, “so we opened The Grind Coffee Company on December 16. Now you can enjoy espresso brand hot and cold beverages as well as delicious baked goods and other snacks. We also added an additional 20,000 square foot space called Warehouse 100 to our existing event center.”
iPlay America is “New Jersey’s Original Indoor Boardwalk.” Whatever time of year, whatever the weather is like outside, inside it’s always the perfect atmosphere for full-on family fun! The entertainment multiplex offers everything from laser tag, rides, and concerts to candy, Boardwalk style fare, and classic American cuisine.
