GREAT FALLS — Game Night Lounge is now open in Great Falls and aims to be the newest spot for family entertainment.
Located in the former Golden Corral restaurant in the Great Falls Marketplace, the Game Night Lounge offers fun for all ages. From virtual reality and digital gaming, to traditional table-top games, the Game Night Lounge crew hopes to get everyone playing.
“Coming from operating the Golden Corral, we wanted to stay in the family genre, that was something that was really important to us, and we just kinda looked and evaluated and said, ‘What does Great Falls have, what does it need,’ and we wanted to bring something really fun and exciting to Great Falls,” said Josh Williams, Development Crew for the Game Night Lounge.
The Game Night Lounge features gaming stations, each equipped with a comfortable couch, a 55-inch TV, and a Playstation 5, Xbox X, or Nintendo Switch. They also have a PC computer lounge with 36 computers, and the Hologate Blitz, a virtual reality motion simulator.
In addition to entertainment, the Game Night Lounge has a full menu, and you can order from anywhere in the lounge, from the comfort and safety of your phone.
“We wanted a place for the community to get together and play any kind of game that you can think of, we got board games, PC games, the virtual reality stuff, and you know, I really feel like from the feedback that we’ve gotten from the community is that a place like this is necessary and wanted,” said Josh Hudson, Development Crew for the Game Night Lounge.
The Game Night Lounge also offers membership packages for both causal and competitive gaming. They also plan to offer birthday parties and corporate events, and also work to help students in the community with "Game Night Academy":
