LINCOLN, Neb. – Sun Valley Lanes in Lincoln announced a $4 million renovation on Tuesday.
"We see the future is moving to becoming a recreation destination, and we think we'll fit that need for southeast Nebraska," said proprietor, John Losito.
The expansion at Sun Valley Lanes, which opened its doors in 1977, will include an expanded arcade, an expanded kitchen and lounge, an outdoor patio, a new bowling pro shop, a two-level laser tag arena, three sand volleyball courts, and a “new style of mini-golf."

Besides taking the fun to the next level in multiple activities, we expect to do the same with our food and beverages as well," Losito stated. In order to reflect the operational change of the facility, the new business name will be “Sun Valley Lanes & Games”.
The the new laser tag, arcade, mini-golf and volleyball is expected to open in the spring/summer of 2020.
