Action-Packed Apex Entertainment Coming to Crossgates!

Families and friends will soon have one of the most complete and diverse entertainment venues in the Capital Region to harness their adrenaline. Apex Entertainment, boasting over 50,000 square feet of fun for all ages, has begun construction and will be bringing its thrill-inducing mix of amusements and attractions to Crossgates. The action-packed venue will occupy the former Lucky Strike Social space on the lower level of the center and undergo a complete transformation prior to opening. Apex Entertainment is scheduled to open later this year.

Burn off some energy with hyper-realistic VR or run from your opponents in an Albany themed Laser Tag Arena. Challenge your family and friends to a premium game of bowling. Go head-to-head in the region’s only bumper cars. Apex offers fun for all ages in their arcade and redemption area. Golf 18 holes or play zombie dodgeball in our sports simulators. Host epic team-building adventures with ample corporate meeting space. No matter what adventure you choose, the one guarantee is a first-class, one-of-a-kind entertainment experience and making memories with friends, family and coworkers.

Looking to expand beyond their New England and Syracuse locations, Apex Entertainment selected Crossgates as the perfect opportunity to become a part of the tremendous dining and entertainment mix.  The venue’s close proximity to the other dining and entertainment destinations within Crossgates, along with the onsite Tru and Homewood Suites by Hilton hotel, make it an ideal destination for leisure and business travelers alike.

“This is exciting for Crossgates,” said Michael Gately, General Manager, Crossgates. “We’re thrilled to further bolster our broad range of entertainment destinations with Apex Entertainment and cannot wait for our guests to experience each of its action-oriented activities.”

The venue will also include a full-service kitchen, serving American cuisine, plus a complete Tavern. Renovation and transition from the Lucky Strike Social space and name has already begun, with a planned grand opening later this year. For more information, hiring, and updates, visit their website at
