Everyone needs a place to go where they can play and chill. Luckily, Tampa is home to plenty of establishments that know just how to show you a good time. Check out one of these local favorite hangouts and get ready to have some fun!
If you enjoy bowling, you’ll definitely want to drop by Pin Chasers. The food alone is worth it, thanks to their in-house bistro, the Ten Pin Grill, which serves pizza, burgers, and yes – beer!
They also offer a number of unique bowling experiences to keep the game interesting. Try Cyber Bowling, a late-night bowling party with loud music and club lighting for those nights when you’re having too much fun to head to bed, or join their bowling league, recognized by locals as the best one in the city. Don’t worry if your game isn’t quite up to snuff – Pin Chasers offers a four-week, no-cost course for folks who don’t know how to bowl at all, or who are looking to build their skills. And save some time to hit their arcade, which features a ton of games from nostalgic favorites to new 3D, immersive adventures.
Laser Ops brands itself as an “extreme gaming arcade” – so you can be assured they know how to have fun. If you want a genuine arcade experience, this is the place to go. Here, you’ll find over 70 arcade games, including Pac-Man, Mortal Kombat, and Halo. If you want to take your gaming to the next level, hop into one of their virtual reality games with a group of friends.
Looking for something more active? Laser Ops has you covered. Join in for Bazooka Ball, a fun, high-tech version of dodgeball, or Archery Tag, a skill-based game where you’ll launch foam arrows at your opponents. Of course, you don’t want to miss their specialty: laser tag in an 8,000-square-foot, post-apocalyptic-themed arena.
GameTime is one of Tampa’s premier gaming hangouts – and that goes for all the games. Find watch parties for your favorite NFL and NBA teams, try your hand at mini bowling, or hang out in an arcade that features over 120 games and simulators. Plus, the ribs, wings, and pizza from their sports bar make GameTime a truly epic gaming experience.
