Eat, drink, see a band, play a game, throw an axe, climb a rock wall: all this and more await fun-loving guests at GameChangerWorld. The state-of-the-art entertainment complex opened in May 2017 on the site of the former Rascals in Allentown. Owner John D’Esposito hopes it will soon rival Dave and Busters. “We are taking entertainment and gaming into the future,” he says.
The 20,000-square-foot facility has something for all ages, including over 70 arcade games, mechanical bull, hatchet throwing (they supply the axes and a safe place to throw), bouncy houses, half-court basketball and the three-story Mount Rockmore for climbing. Comfort foods such as burgers, wings, sandwiches, pizza and every kind of potato imaginable are featured at Taters Half Baked, the full-service restaurant.
D’Esposito, a former concert promoter who developed and signed acts including the Jonas Brothers and Dane Cook, lines up the live weekly entertainment with a focus on new and emerging artists. The facility is also available for private parties.
