New Zealand has a large new FEC complex at Auckland’s Bowling Botanical Gardens. Behind the new location is the parent company of FEC’s TimeZone chain in Southeast Asia and Oceania.
Zone Bowling Botany is open in time for the school holidays and has a location in a time zone. The FEC officially opened after a multi-million dollar renovation by parent company Timezone The Entertainment and Education Group (TEEG).
Botany is the second dual-branded Zone Bowling and Timezone venue to open in New Zealand, following the hugely popular Zone Bowling Garden City in Christchurch last year. Botany, formerly known as Xtreme Entertainment, has transformed into a modern FEC with 12 bowling lanes, cars and 80 arcade games. A new mezzanine features a new laser arena with 20 vests and a new cafe with a fresh menu.
Belinda Falzon, COO of TEEG New Zealand said: “I believe that by opening Zone Bowling and Tijmezone Botany, we can bring new experiences to our customers with restrictions to ensure we can open on time and provide a safe recreation center for people . aucklanders
Sonaal Chopra, Chief Executive of TEEG said: “Launching at the beginning of Spring Break means we can create value for our customers. We are committed to creating smiles, memorable experiences and increasing the popularity of our first dual-brand regional bowling alley in Christchurch. We are encouraged by the scale.”
He said TEEG’s experience in the New Zealand market shows that the country has no hesitation in returning to its favorite entertainment venues. “There are already a lot of queues waiting for locations to open,” Chopra said. “Your confidence in the safety of our New Zealand locations means we remain on track to open state-of-the-art entertainment venues in Palmerston North, Christchurch, Napier and Dunedin by the end of the year.”
TEEG is one of the largest FEC operators in the world with more than 300 offices in Asia Pacific. It is co-owned by Quadrant Private Equity and LAI Group and is headquartered in Singapore.
