A new entertainment facility, Superbowl UK, is set to open in the Ipswich Buttermarket.

Superbowl UK which was originally set to open in August is now due to open in March 2018.

The £1.8million venue will have 12 bowling lanes, a ninja tag active assault course, children’s indoor soft play, an amusement arcade arena, a food diner and a lounge bar.

The new facility company director, Kate Quaintance-Blackford, said: “Superbowl UK Ipswich presents us with an exciting opportunity to extend our distinctive brand of family entertainment in Suffolk, where we believe it will prove extremely popular.

“We are one of very few companies in the UK offering a range of high quality facilities under one roof and, because of that, we’re very confident about the success of the new site here in Ipswich. The Buttermarket has recently celebrated the 25th anniversary of the centre and we’re excited to be a part of its future.”

It is estimated 30 jobs will be created once Superbowl UK Ipswich is open.

The company has also said that it will use local tradesmen through the fit-out process.
