BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WECT) - A new entertainment center for kids will open this weekend in Brunswick County.

Planet Fun is a 50,000 square foot facility featuring 32 bowling lanes, a lazer tag arena, mini golf, bumper cars, and a restaurant.

Staff said the complex will make Shallotte a one-of-a-kind destination.

"These things were lacking in the Shallotte area," said general manager Toney Reedy.  "We're between Wilmington and Myrtle beach and you can find some of those things here but not necessarily under one roof like the scope of the facility we have put in place."

Planet Fun is on Whiteville Road in Shallotte next to Lowes Home Improvement.
