In addition to family friendly entertainment, Surge will be available for special events, birthday parties and will offer a lounge for parents. 

Surge Adventure Park is new to southside Hampton Roads. Other locations are in Alabama, Louisiana, North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, Oklahoma and Newport News, Virginia. 

SK8 House VB is building two roller rinks in the 27,000-square-foot space. The larger 10,000-square-foot rink is being designed for free skating, and a smaller rink will be used for training and children. Other entertainment offerings will include a modern arcade, e-game center, jungle gym and special event/party rooms. 

Food concepts will include a traditional snack bar, Jelly Ball and Chicken Spot. The family friendly entertainment center will also include Regalo Taphouse, a local brewery that will also serve wine. 

“We’ve already had tremendous interest from roller derby and roller hockey enthusiasts,” said Amante Canonizado, finance director for SK8 House. “We want to bring a fresh modern twist to roller skating and will include seating for viewing and socializing.”

Lynnhaven North Shopping Center is surrounded by dense residential subdivisions, professional office parks, industrial parks, Naval Air Station Oceana and easy access to I-264. 

The Lynnhaven retail submarket contains approximately 1,800,000 square feet of retail space and is anchored by General Growth’s 1.3 million-square-foot Lynnhaven Mall, the region’s #1 shopping destination. Lynnhaven North Shopping Center and Lynnhaven Mall share access via North Mall Drive and the mall’s ring road with more than 38,000 vehicles daily.
