The City of Alamogordo finally broke ground on the long awaited and often controversial Family Fun Center. The City and White Sands Construction hosted the groundbreaking ceremony at the Mesa Village on Thursday, December 15, 2016.

In 2012, homes in Alamogordo NM residents initially voted down a bond measure to build the Family Fun Center, and then two years later voters changed their minds. But in February 2016, concerned citizens expressed their voiced concerns that no plans had been made to move forward with the Family Fun Center.

“It’s so exciting,” said City Commissioner Susan Payne. “I’m tearing up, I’m so excited. It’s one of the things we wanted to see happen. This is all about the voters, they voted for this and there were a lot of perceptions, a lot of delays and we wanted to be the commission that got this done.

The $5.8 million facility, which has been named Basin Lanes, will include a 24-lane bowling alley, laser tag, arcade, multipurpose room, locker rooms, pro shop, outdoor seating area, and full restaurant and bar called Basin Pub and Grill.

“We’ve been moving towards this day for the last three years,” said Mayor Richard Boss. “We are very excited to be breaking ground. We’re here today in part to the efforts of former City Commissioner Josh Rardin as this was his vision.”

Basin Lanes will be a great addition to the city and an entertainment center for residents to enjoy and take their families.

“What I envision is getting up on a Saturday morning and you can clean the house, have breakfast and at noon you can bring the kids, eat lunch, do some bowling, play some laser tag, walk across the street and go to the movies,” Payne said. “Before you know it, you’ve spent an entire day in Alamogordo. You’ve had all this fun and you never had to leave Alamogordo.”

Construction is slated to begin early this year, though no date has been set yet. Basin Lanes should be completed by the end of 2017.
