An indoor adventure park is expected to open next spring in Worthington, according to the developer.
Play: CBUS, an indoor adventure park, is being developed at 535 Lakeview Plaza Blvd. in Worthington.
The large building at that address, which can be seen from Interstate 270, is the site of multiple businesses, including Road Runner Sports.
Lee Brown, director of planning and building for Worthington, said Road Runner Sports would retain a small retail space on the eastern side of the building.
Meanwhile, SuperGames, a special-events company that rents inflatables and other large equipment and holds events, is in the process of moving to a location on Huntley Road, he said. The Greater Columbus Volleyball Club will take over SuperGames' space, and Play: CBUS will operate out of the southern portion of the building, he said.
Brown said the project in the 5,300-square-foot warehouse space was approved by the city in July.
Greg Carlin, owner of Play: CBUS, said the company is expected to begin renovating the warehouse building before the end of this year and plans to open by "early spring."
Carlin, who also owns Play: CLE, 38525 Chester Road in Avon, said he wanted to expand to Columbus because of the "continued growth and progress" the city has to offer.
"When we started in Cleveland two years ago, we always intended to grow the business in a new location, and Columbus was always at the top of our list for the next location," he said. "We are very excited to have found a great location in Worthington, and it's been confirmed with how great the city has been to work with to date."
The indoor adventure park will feature a zip line, a bouldering wall, an aerial-ropes course, six "ninja warrior" courses and a parkour course for the sport of rapidly jumping through obstacles, according to playcolumbus.com, the Play: CBUS website.
Carlin said details on other features are yet to be determined, but Play: CBUS will offer different amenities compared to the competition.
"We have a good sense of slightly similar businesses in the Columbus area or ones being planned, and we know we are putting attractions in Play: CBUS for adults, kids and groups that will be unlike any others," he said.
He said the indoor park will bring several jobs to the area, with 75 to 100 people being hired upon opening.
