    Disney have announced that this fall, construction will begin on Splitsville, a 50,000-square-foot upscale entertainment center that combines bowling with billiards, dining, music and nightlife.

    To make way for this experience, RIDEMAKERZ, currently located on the West Side in the former Virgin Megastore Building, will move to the Marketplace as we told you here

    Bowling will be great - although I assume it will be so hard to get a game during any time that we will be there during peak seasons.

    They've always needed Bowling IMHO but yeah, unless it's truly huge, I suspect getting a game will be hard

    Bowling makes my eyes glaze over. :sorry: I really miss Virgin. It was a great shop. Still don't know how it ended up being targeted for closing. :sigh:

    Loads of people like bowling though, so I imagine this will be a very popular place.

    yeah we really miss Virgin :( We enjoyed the book section upstairs and even the little cafe.

    I guess the problem for that store, like any such shop, was online music sales just cut into cd sales so much that a huge chunk of income disappeared.
