Round 1 recently collaborated with Edwards Technology Inc. to re-invent their already popular bowling zones at several sites in their portfolio. ETI provided experience, expertise, and guidance in the engineering, installation, and integration of the audio-visual components to create a family friendly atmosphere that would complement their other offerings including an arcade, billiards, private karaoke rooms, darts, ping-pong, food, and drinks. ETI envisioned then oversaw the selection and implementation of quality products that would create an unmatched consumer experience including elements like the sound system, video system, light shows for Cosmic Bowling, and the control systems to manage the various daily shows.
ETI teamed with Round 1 at the following locations: Main Place Mall, Santa Ana, CA, Westfield Southcenter, Seattle, WA, Stratford Square Mall, Bloomingdale, IL, and Arlington Parks, Arlington, TX.
“Our goal was to help Round 1 deliver a fun and dynamic environment for all guests who visit the bowling lanes at these Round 1 locations, especially their exclusive Moon Light Strike Game where everyone bowls at once with the lights down, ” commented Guy O’Hazza, Senior Project Manager for Edwards Technologies Inc. who oversaw the work completed for Round 1.
Round 1 is currently rapidly expanding nationwide with eight locations already open in the US and an additional location slated to open soon in Massachusetts.
