Nile, I have never been to the coliseum, but I do agree that this could be problem for the owner. It sounds like a good idea, but we already have two bowling establishments in the area, and are they busy enough for the competition? Yes, I know every business competes with others, but just not sure how this will go. Most people don’t go on vacation to bowl.

I can see the variety of things to do as being something that will attract groups of people be it a families or any other type of group such as high school and college kids, church and other youth groups, and just individual looking for something different to do. I can see this as an evening drop off for the many school groups that visit Gettysburg in the spring. You know, after a day of touring the battlefield, and visiting the museums, take the kids there for a few hours in the evening.

Not sure in my opinion how I look at the alcohol though. I am sure that many people would enjoy drinking a cold beer or whatever as they play the arcade games, and I can remember the days of my bowling league in Maryland we always had “beer frames” and sitting back with a nice cold one after the game was enjoyable. But not sure how the parents will want to let their children go to this kind of place with drinks flowing.

And if they isolate the alcohol and keep it in certain areas, that may detract some from visiting because they can’t drink that beer and watch the kids on the bumper cars.

I can see how having alcohol available can both help and hurt business, and all things I am sure the owners have thought about.

Not local residents. They did not make the decision. The PGCB did. The majority of local residents supported the proposal.

Agree, agree and agree. Personal note to Paul, Carole, Daniel and Tammy, only do this if you consider your retirement money to be disposable. Contrary to what the outlet mall management is telling you, there is not enough people and tourist in Gettysburg to support your idea.

Finally, something for people to do while at the mall. Usually malls are places for kids/teens to hang out. Unfortunately, there was nothing for kids to do at that mall if they didn't want to shop. Now they'll have something to do.
