Local developer seeking to bring indoor amusement centre to Fort St. John


FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – A local developer is looking to partner with an amusement company to bring an amusement centre to the Energetic City that would feature a wide range of activities for all ages.

Gateway Plaza owner and developer Trevor Bolin says that he’s been in talks with a company that declined to be named about bringing a larger-scale indoor amusement centre to Fort St. John. Bolin says that the proposed centre would feature a go-kart track, mini-golf, virtual golf stalls, an arcade, and an indoor children’s play area. The centre would be similar to other indoor amusement centres in larger urban areas in Canada, although Bolin said he feels that though the population of Fort St. John is smaller than many of those other centres, the city does see a large number of tourists.

Bolin added that the Gateway Plaza is currently taking public feedback on the proposal for the next few months, as ground wouldn’t be able to be broken on the building that would house the proposed centre until next Spring. Feedback can be made on Gateway Plaza’s Facebook page, or via direct Facebook massage.
