The greater Seattle area is increasingly becoming more clever with its entertainment choices with twists on the old fashioned bowling alleys, arcades and movie theaters. Here are just some of the best attractions offerings:
Lucky Strike 700 Bellevue Way NE Suite #250 Bellevue, WA 98004 (425) 453-5137 http://www.bowlluckystrike.com/locations/bellevue/
USA Today calls Lucky Strike the “bowling alley for the new millennium” with 16 lanes, dance floors, full bar, billiard tables and the Power Play arcade room. The place is unique in that it caters to both families and adults. It’s modern and retro at the same time and unlike your dad’s bowling alley, this one is smoke free!
This 20,000 square-foot, family-friendly arcade is almost too big with 180 interactive video, ticket and prize games. It also has its own full-size restaurant, bar and private party rooms. Gameworks is also home to the new eSports LAN gaming zone for “gaming athletes” with 40 PCs, 20 Xbox One consoles, 5 Wii U Console games and more. Whatever your age, you’ll have a good time here.
Three different escape rooms, two different locations, one great time. These mystery, puzzle-solving adventures are designed for groups as small and two and as many as 14. These are great for families with older kids (at least age 16), a date night or something to do with a group of friends. The three adventures “lock” you in a room or similar space with no noticeable door to get out, but it’s there, you just need to find all the clues to do so. The Puzzle Breaks currently offered are, “Escape from 20 Thousand Leagues,” “Escape the Midnight Carnival” and “The Eventide Departure.”
Portal Virtual Reality Arcade 2601 NW Market St. Seattle, WA (206) 494-0102 www.portalvr.us
Located in Ballard, Portal VR is an arcade unlike any you’ve ever experienced. Instead of rooms full of load games and bright colors, Portal features a number of empty black rooms with headsets. However, when you put the headsets on, a whole new world awaits. Here you can your risk your life by walking the plank high above a busy city, get lost in a snow storm and finish off a few zombies in an old mine shaft all in a matter of minutes. Because each room has its own adventures, you can bring little ones or a group of adults without worrying about the content. Snacks as well as hard and soft drinks are served here, but alcohol cannot be taken out of the bar area.
Another place for the young or the young at heart. This is more arcade than it is a museum as you can touch everything and play as many games as you for as long as you like. The space holds up to 50 pinball machines and a couple of video games all created in different eras from the early 1960s to 2017 and they games rotate each month. The only catch is you need to be at least seven years old to play, other than that, it’s “free play” (after the initial charge of course.)
Family Fun Center 7300 Fun Center Way Tukwila, WA 98188 (425) 228-7300 https://www.fun-center.com/tukwila

As to be expected, Seattle is not in shortage of shopping centers. The
"One of their team members stopped by my house on Lake Sammamish just two days before my property was to be sold at auction. I told them that I was under water and couldn’t sell. He insisted that I speak with Ky DeWald and Adam Mickelson to see if there was anything that could be done. I finally agreed. They were able to not only stop my auction and get me another 90 days in my house but also put over $125,000.00 in my pocket and sold my house for $1,550,000.00!!! I couldn’t be happier!!! Thanks guys for all the help!"
