A new, much-anticipated leisure facility opened its doors to the Bury St Edmunds public on Monday.

The former Bury Spectrum Gymnastics Club, at the back of Desira, in Western Way, has now been transformed into a leisure space offering mini-bowling, an amusement arcade and a cafe.

It is the first of two PlanetLaser venues to open.

The adjacent building, which will be home to one of East Anglia’s biggest laser gaming arenas, is now expected to open in May.

John Cross, the brains behind the operation, said he was relieved to finally get the complex up-and-running.

Initially, it will open from 12-6pm each day, but Mr Cross said he would ‘play it by ear’ and would be happy to open later if people showed an interest in him doing so.

The facilities include four lanes of mini-bowling, two pence pushers, air hockey and some of the latest video games.

Items available at its cafe include thick shakes, Slush and freshly-ground coffee as well as freshly-made pizzas, jacket potatoes, paninis, burgers, hot dogs and mains like scampi and piri-piri chicken.
