King Pins commences state of the art fit out at Trafford Palazzo

King Pins, the new flagship bowling experience at Trafford Palazzo, part of TraffordCity, has now commenced the on-site build ahead of it launching this Spring.

Inventive Design Associates (IDA) has been appointed to deliver a comprehensive interior design & fit-out of the 26,000 sq ft space, which has already started and is expected to take a total of five months.

The state-of the-art modern bowling alley will open early this year and will feature 15 lanes of tenpin bowling, six lanes of duckpin bowling and an eye-catching bespoke bar serving 20 different beers such as local Salford brewery, Seven Bro7hers as well as cocktails, alcohol free options and fresh slushies.

Situated on the upper floor of Trafford Palazzo, the space will house the UK’s first 26-metre-long digital screen which will span the length of the 15 ten-pin lanes.

Matt Jones, chief executive of King Pins said: “We are really looking forward to opening the crown jewels of bowling very soon. Guests will enjoy stunning-looking bowling lanes of course, alongside new interactive, fun games at every corner, fantastic local food operators plus a central bar.

“The fit out is progressing well and we are aiming to be open this spring.”

Mark Whittaker, Executive Director, Property Investment Management at Peel L&P said: “It is great to see the modern, high-class fit out of King Pins progressing at Trafford Palazzo. The October pop-up was received extremely well, and we know the site is going to be very popular amongst our customers.

“Attracting a tenant as high calibre as King Pins is testament to the environment and experiences we are fostering within Trafford Palazzo and TraffordCity.”

The venue will be located at Trafford Palazzo near to local venues Legoland® Discovery Centre, SEA LIFE and the forthcoming NERF Action Xperience (NAX).

Trafford Palazzo’s growing range of shopping and leisure brands include Primark, LEGOLAND® Discovery Centre, SEA LIFE, Silentnight, Homesense, Italian restaurant Matterello and Natuzzi. Archies and NERF Action Xperience are set to open their doors in 2023.
