Worst Name Ever: Shenaniganz

By |

Shenaniganz sounds like it might be a welcome addition to Rockwall. But the name is horrible. It sounds like something from a Simpsons episode. Full release after the jump — with laser tag!

Upscale Entertainment Venue & Restaurant to Debut in Rockwall

SHENANIGANZ, a high-end entertainment destination, features Rozie’s Grill (a full-service restaurant), 24 upscale bowling lanes, a private lounge and martini bar known as “Z Lounge”, a sports bar, laser tag, indoor rock climbing, indoor Go-Karts and 7,000 square feet of the latest and greatest arcade games.

ROCKWALL, TX- December 4, 2008 -Set to open the week of December 15, 2008, Shenaniganz is a one-of-a-kind addition to the Rockwall/Dallas Area.

As one of Rockwall’s largest revitalization projects ever, Shenaniganz will be housed in the 75,000 square foot building previously occupied by Precision Cable and Amphenol. Customized specifically for the Rockwall community, this venue will provide a plethora of entertainment options, a sensory-pleasing atmosphere and delicious eats and drinks for the entire region. Shenaniganz promises to be “the-place-to-be” for gatherings, parties, family outings, corporate events and that special evening out, with hours of entertainment and something for everyone.

As guests enter the facility, their senses will be treated to the tantalizing aroma and sights of the Rozie’s Grill open-exhibition kitchen featuring the eye-catching, cobalt blue pizza oven. Guests can order delicious made-from-scratch items such as fried calamari, fresh salads or gourmet pizza. A spirited sports bar will host a wide variety of thrist quenching beverages for the adults including 24 draft taps, 38 bottled beers, frozen beverages and specialty drinks. The restaurant menu and bar offerings will be served throughout the complex.

The main concourse showcases 16 lanes of upscale bowling in an enveloping environment. There is a number of high-definition TVs throughout the facility, but bowlers, especially, will have front row seats to watch their favorite sports teams or the latest music videos on the huge high definition projection screens. The bowlers can order from a full menu of food and beverages from their comfy lane-side couches by taking advantage of our lane side service. The bowling pavilion is also equipped with a high-tech black light system for guests to enjoy the ultimate party game…cosmic bowling.

Lazer Tag: The Ruins of Angkor Wat features a two-level laser tag arena themed after Angkor Wat, the ancient temple located in the jungles of Cambodia. Participants can play the glowing game amid monkeys and a black puma which preys throughout the ancient tower ruins.

Guests can also try out our state-of-the-art interactive games in our 7,000 sq ft arcade. This game area also includes mini-bowling lanes for the little tikes and a 4-person rock climbing wall where guests can either climb leisurely or compete with others to see who reaches the top first.

Z Lounge is the perfect spot for adults looking for a fun time, but in a posh and classy environment. This secluded area hosts 8 private lanes, a Martini Bar, pool tables and shuffleboard. Leather couches, refined lighting, and décor afforded in rich tones add to the sophisticated atmosphere at Z Lounge. Two 22-feet-wide high-definition projection screens are located at the ends of the bowling lanes. Z Lounge is also the ideal place for private parties and gatherings.

For the younger birthday crowds, friends and family can celebrate in one of the eight party rooms or at the mini-bowling lanes, which are decorated with dinosaur and aquatic themes. A host from Shenaniganz will organize and entertain birthday gatherings, not just babysit them, to create memories that will last a lifetime so parents can relax and enjoy their “future memories”.

“We wanted to create a special place for our community. One where our guests could escape the day-to-day realities and, simply put, ‘just have fun’,” said Hazel Ripp, co-owner and mother of the three Ripp brothers that will be managing the facility. “Our guests do it all–play, eat and drink and then play, eat and drink again! With so much for our guests to do, we’ve tried to create a special experience where each visit is fresh and special. It’s an all-in-one, 5-star entertainment experience for people of all ages. We only have one requirement at Shenaniganz: come to Have Fun with Your Food!”

Shenaniganz will be open Sunday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to midnight and 11 a.m. to 1 a.m. (or later, if needed) on Friday and Saturday and is located at 1290 East Interstate-30, Rockwall, Texas 75087-on the East-bound service road next to Toyota of Rockwall.
