DAYTON, OH -- Scene 75 Entertainment here will be America's largest family entertainment center, as measured by indoor space, when it opens in April or May, said co-owner Jonah Sandler. The claim is reportedly supported by Ben Jones, an FEC specialist for the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions.

Scene 75 is a $5 million facility with 124,000 square feet of indoor space, complemented by seasonal outdoor attractions.

According to Scene 75's Facebook page, components will include a 5,500-sq.ft. full-service restaurant and two indoor bars, along with go-kart tracks, laser tag arena, 18 holes of blacklight glow-in-the-dark mini-golf, bumper cars and Chaos Room videogame theater screens, as well as Dayton's largest redemption and video arcade.

The venue was previously a furniture warehouse, according to local media outlets. Sandler's prior industry experience includes operating a miniature golf course and an interactive gaming theater in the area. His partners belong to an investor group. A longtime successful local restaurateur will run Scene 75's food and beverage operations. | SEE STORY

Sandler said owners expect the FEC to draw traffic from a 75-mile radius. The facility is located close to the interchange of Interstate 70 and Interstate 75.
