ABERDEEN, S.D. –We’ve all had our plans ruined by that reliable South Dakota weather (cue the rain, wind, and snow). A new entertainment center opening this winter aims to bring families together for fun, without the hassle of worrying about what Mother Nature has planned.
Allevity Entertainment Center is under construction now just north of the Aberdeen Mall near Matchbox Recreation. The 20,300-square-foot space will house at least six attractions, three party rooms, and a café. David and Holly Novstrup, who own Allevity along with Al and Kathy Novstrup, say the facility will be a place where an entire family can walk in and find something to do. “It’s a space for all ages to hang out, from toddlers to teenagers and their parents,” David explains. The Novstrups put a lot of thought, and some fun hands-on research, into deciding which activities they’ll offer at Allevity. Patrons will get to choose from three-team laser tag, an arcade with about 40 different games, mini bowling, an indoor playground, an augmented climbing wall with projector challenges, and Spin Zone, which is similar to bumper cars. Food will be made on site and they plan to be open every day of the week. Field trips, birthday parties, and large groups are all welcome.
David says they’re looking forward to opening and being a part of all the things Aberdeen is already doing to make the city a great place to live and visit. “Aberdeen does such a good job of bringing in events and keeping events, and we want to add to that by giving people another option for things to do while they’re here.” // — Jenny Roth
