Opelika’s CyberZone is offering an “out of this world experience” for area residents of all ages.
The business, located at 107 N. 9th St., features laser tag, modern and retro arcade games along with a snack bar. It opened in June and is already one of Lee County’s most popular family entertainment locations.
“CyberZone is a family-friendly environment that is focused on bringing the best entertainment for the money to the area,” CyberZone owner Simon Bak said.
CyberZone offers a 6,000-square foot laser tag arena with 24 battle suits. Bak said the arena’s many obstacles and ramps “offer the player a true gaming experience, without the controller.”
The arcade is the largest in the area, with retro favorites like PacMan and Galaga along with the newest games like Terminator Salvation and Grid.
Bak developed an interest in quality family entertainment after working as a cast member for Walt Disney World for eight years.
“Working with Walt Disney World, I began to love the entertainment industry and what it does to bring families together,” he said.
“When I had children of my own I wanted to continue my journey with support from my wife Elaine, so I started my first chapter with our first laser tag center in Cookeville, Tenn.”
That business remains one of Middle Tennessee’s favorite family entertainment destinations. Bak and his family moved to the Auburn-Opelika area in 2011 and immediately started looking for buildings for what is now CyberZone.
CyberZone offers birthday packages, group rates and lock-ins.
“With two dedicated party rooms we can host any size group,” Bak said.
There are also plans for additional growth, according to Bak.
“CyberZone will continue to grow over the next few years offering even more entertainment options to the area. With our roller coaster simulator or mini bowling coming in 2014, we hope to be able to grow and offer an unforgettable experience.”
