Indoor sports complex getting $2M makeover

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

The Sports Of All Sorts indoor recreational facility on Indianapolis’ northeast side is undergoing a rebranding that will transform it into a restaurant and entertainment venue as well as a sports complex.

On Nov. 15, the name of the 180,000-square-foot building at 6002 Sunnyside Drive, north of Pendleton Pike, will change to Incrediplex, according to owner Dave Lawrence.

The complex will devote about 50,000 square feet to the new attractions, which include a tiki bar and restaurant, eight-lane bowling alley, bumper cars, multi-level laser tag, rock climbing, coin-operated games and a four-story playground.

It will also retain most of its sports facilities for soccer, basketball, lacrosse and volleyball.

Owners plan to spend about $2 million on the remodeling and to hire new facility operator Incredible Dave’s LLC. Louisville-based Incredible Dave’s, which was founded in 2008 and has locations in Louisville and Nashville, Tenn., plans to retain the previous management and hire 60 additional employees.

Lawrence said he had considered opening an Incredible Dave’s location in the space that Dave & Buster’s took in Castleton in 2009.

Sports of All Sorts opened in November 2006 as one of the largest recreational multi-sport and fitness complexes in the Midwest.

  1. I am also a "vet" of several Cirque shows and this one left me flat. It didn't have the amount of acrobatic stunts as the others that I have seen. I am still glad that I went to it and look forward to the next one but I put Varekai as my least favorite.

  2. Looking at the two companies - in spite of their relative size to one another -- Ricker's image is (by all accounts) pretty solid and reputable. Their locations are clean, employees are friendly and the products they offer are reasonably priced. By contrast, BP locations are all over the place and their reputation is poor, especially when you consider this is the same "company" whose disastrous oil spill and their response was nothing short of irresponsible should tell you a lot. The fact you also have people who are experienced in franchising saying their system/strategy is flawed is a good indication that another "spill" has occurred and it's the AM-PM/Ricker's customers/company that are having to deal with it.

  3. Daniel Lilly - Glad to hear about your points and miles. Enjoy Wisconsin and Illinois. You don't care one whit about financial discipline, which is why you will blast the "GOP". Classic liberalism.

  4. Isn't the real reason the terrain? The planners under-estimated the undulating terrain, sink holes, karst features, etc. This portion of the route was flawed from the beginning.

  5. You thought no Indy was bad, how's no fans working out for you? THe IRl No direct competition and still no fans. Hey George Family, spend another billion dollars, that will fix it.
