A brand new place just for teens was the final step in completing the Tony Bettenhausen Recreation Center addition. “The Pit Stop” Teen Drop-in Center has a brand new look post-construction, as the new room in the bottom level of the Rec Center is now open and ready to welcome new teens in grade 6-12 to come hang out with their friends. Hours for The Pit Stop are Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4-8 p.m. and Fridays from 4-9 p.m.
A Rec Center membership or daily drop-in fee is required for entry. A free, public open house will be held on Saturday, January 11 from 12-2 p.m. so parents and their children can come see all the new center has to offer, which includes: Playstation 3, Xbox 360, Wii, pool, ping pong, air hockey, foosball, carpetball, lounge area with big screen TV, study/gaming area with homework help if needed, rotating climbing wall, Eye Play system with games displayed on the ground, light up T-Wall, and Exer-Gaming Bikes.
Parents, have no fear as The Pit Stop is fully staffed and monitored at all times. There are also special events scheduled every month, like a movie night the first Friday of every month, and tournaments and competitions will also be planned for participants.
The public open house will also serve as the new center’s Grand Opening, and even parents with children that will begin middle school in the next few years are encouraged to come check out the new teen center for when their child is at the appropriate age to utilize the teen drop-in center.
UPDATE: This has been a great honor working with the Tinley Park District in setting up this exergaming room. Check the link below for photos of the installation and a link to the SmugMug gallery of the rest of the photos.
