Champion Lanes was an $8 million, 60,000 square-feet, 32-lane bowling alley and restaurant at the intersection of North 31st Avenue and Lakeview Road. It was part of 1900 Entertainment Park, along with Remington’s Hunt Club and McCleskey’s Deli. The groundbreaking ceremony was held on February 21, 2007, and the building opened in August.[1] It closed in May 2012.

In late 2013 First Baptist Church announced plans to buy the entire facility and turn it into a satellite church campus.[2]
