‘We’ve been looking for an opportunity in the Pittsburgh market for a long time, and when the opportunity in Edgewood came available, we knew there was no better chance,” said Jonah Sandler, Scene 75’s founder and chief executive officer, in the release.
“There may be others that have provide similar entertainment experiences, whether it be laser tag or go-karts, but very few will provide it all in one place like we will, open all year long.”
The company’s Dayton location on Poe Avenue was a former furniture warehouse. It now has the longest indoor electric go-kart track and largest inflatable arena, the first gaming theater in the country, the largest multi-level laser tag arena in the tri-state and the only spin zone bumper car attraction in Ohio.
Last year, Sandler said future plans at the Dayton location include new amusement ride concepts.
“We’re considering a drop tower and other ideas,” Sandler said. “It’s a ways down the road, but definitely something we are pursuing.”
Scene75 will have more than 550 employees at the four locations when the Edgewood facility opens.
