Our goal: renew, rebuild & reopen an old once loved family entertainment center and “TECH THE HECK” into it!

Our goal is to bring life back to a once loved family entertainment center for another life time. We plan to do this by renewing and modernizing the fun center with new technology that will usher in a new era of 4D virtual reality gaming that interfaced over the cloud & IOT (internet of things).

We plan to renew and reopen a once dearly loved family entertainment center in the Chicagoland area. It was the home of “Crete Family Fun Center” for more than 55 years and has closed a few years ago after the owner passed away approximately 2 years after the owner’s wife passed away. It can be said that he may have died of a broken heart.

The location started off as an open market in 1929 and later a driving range was added to it. This started the FEC conversion to the once well known family entertainment center.

After the loss of it’s owners, time has taken quite a toll on this center, further tucking away the memories it had stored. It now lays forgotten in ruins beaten by neglect, weather, and weeds.

It has many amenities that can be restored and reused, however we don’t want to just re-open it, we want to reclaim its glory and “#TechTheHeckIntoIT” into it to bring this monumental place for many – to be appreciated again by people around the world.

Our plan from a high level – we plan to keep the miniature golf course (will be adding to it after opening as would like to have large animated robots sculptures added to it.), batting cages and a portion of the driving range. We plan to add a ropes course, a live entertainment venue in the larger area of the current driving range, a zero depth water park, and convert the go kart track and garage into a indoor and outdoor gourmet hamburger restaurant and sports bar.

We plan to have a redemption video arcade with great prizes, a fresh and tasty hand made pizza restaurant, party rooms and a themed laser tag room.

Our gaming missions room where players can “CENERGIZE” their gaming experience using our top of the line skylake DDR4 gaming workstations designed specifically to give our gamers a strategically responsive advantage in tournaments and esports of any kind. Why spend $3,500 (+ more for games) for a gaming rig when you can sensibly rent ours and play any game you wish for a few dollars an hour!

Players at our gaming lounge will be able to play any game we have available either offline or online, while spectators will be able to watch our players either over the internet on our site, or in our facility.
