Laser Flash of Carmel will build a new facility in Westfield through EdgeRock Development, west of U.S. 31 on Ind. 32.
The new facility will be a 50,000-square-foot entertainment center featuring Laser Flash, axe throwing, bowling, Cyber Sport, an arcade, an indoor ropes course, an outdoor miniature golf course, a restaurant and bar with indoor and outdoor seating and more.
Laser Flash in Westfield will be the first Indiana location to offer Cyber Sport, a two-team sport combining basketball and lacrosse. It is played indoors on maneuverable Cyber Cars. Players use a one-handed scoop to move foam balls down the court. Goals are mounted on each end of the court.
According to a press release, Laser Flash in Carmel will continue to operate at full capacity until the Laser Flash in Westfield is complete and ready for occupancy. The new center will require approximately 130 employees, who will be trained at Laser Flash in Carmel.
Laser Flash in Westfield is planned to open late next year. When it opens, the Carmel location will close and all equipment and staff will shift to Laser Flash in Westfield.
Owner Peter Murphy said Westfield’s growth and the proximity to Grand Park is what attracted him to the area.
“One of our markets is the tourist market,” Murphy said. “Our primary market is the families that live here locally, and other markets include youth groups and businesses, and the third market would be the tourist market. This would help add to that.”
Laser Flash in Carmel opened in 2002, and Murphy said he has searched for a new home for 12 years.
“The requirements were tough to find,” he said.
