Bowling, Racetrack, VR Zone: Everything You Need to Know About Lane 7 Level X


Lane 7 has revealed more details about what’s to come in their new venture Level X.

The family entertainment venue will open in Middlesbrough later this year and will be much more than Lane 7 bowling. There will also be mini golf, interactive darts, e-sports, batting cages and arcade.

It will also bring the latest in VR technology to Captain Cook Square with a designated VR zone. On the upper floor of the former TJ Hughes store, there will be an electric kart racing track, which means there should be something to entertain every member of the family.

COO Graeme Smith said: “Tier X is all about merging the games you loved as a kid with cool tech bits to enhance the experience. We’ve been all over the world looking for the latest and greatest games with a particular focus on technology and I’m confident we can deliver products that the Brits have never experienced before.

“The venues themselves are bigger than ever and the layouts will be fantastic – with lots of color, different areas and great attention to detail.”

Lane 7 currently operates eleven locations across the country with several more expected to open this year. It will join The Wired Lobby esports venue in Captain Cook Square in what Middlesbrough Mayor Andy Preston hopes will be a regional leisure centre.

Both sites have experienced opening delays, and the Local Democracy Reporting Service understands that Level X is aiming to open in August and The Wired Lobby is aiming to launch in July. A spokesperson for Gaming Venues Ltd, the company behind The Wired Lobby, said: “We are creating something special here and, as with many projects, there are slippages.

“We encountered some difficulties which necessitated some changes to the initial plans. The progress is good and we look forward to opening the esports arena this summer.”

In the new esports venue, there are plans for a 100-seat stage where local tournaments can be held, eight racing simulators, 40 PlayStation and Xbox machines and 50 gaming desktops.
