Parents of kids with fall and winter birthdays will be happy to hear that Spare Time in Colchester will be reopening soon. The bowling alley and family fun center was closed over the summer for renovations.

When complete, the new facility — one of 18 in the country owned by Spare Time Entertainment — will include updated bowling lanes, a larger arcade, a reconfigured laser tag arena and two new escape rooms, according to Jana Beagley, Spare Time's event specialist. The bowling alley is expected to open first; barring construction delays, the other features should be finished by the end of September.

The arcade will feature an ax-throwing game, though Beagley notes that the "axes" are plastic and won't have sharp edges. "There's a lot of different types of fun for different folks," she said.
