Entertainment center adds to locations with new site south of Fort Worth

A growing operator of family entertainment centers has purchased a site in Burleson for its third North Texas location.

Alley Cats operates entertainment centers in both Arlington and Hurst.

Now, the company has purchased an 8.4-acre site south of Fort Worth at the northwest corner of John Jones Drive and Alsbury Boulevard in Burleson.

The 50,000-square-foot Burleson Alley Cats entertainment center will have two dozen bowling lanes, a laser tag facility, video games, a rock climbing wall, batting cages, meeting and party rooms, a restaurant and outside miniature golf, pickleball and a go-cart track.

The center will open next year.

Frank Bullock of Henry S. Miller Co. handled the property sale.

“The 2020 COVID shutdown halted our search, but fortunately we got going again in January 2022 and were able to secure the perfect location for their unique entertainment concept,” Bullock said in a statement.

Ciera Bank provided financing, and the city of Burleson provided incentives for the project.

“This is a public-private partnership with the city investing substantially in the project,” Miller Co.’s Michael Gresback said. “Burleson has wanted a family entertainment complex for several years and created an economic incentive package.”
