Cluggy’s, a popular family entertainment center located in Chambersburg, is preparing for a series of upgrades under new ownership.
John and Mary McGough, the previous owners, had been operating Cluggy’s since 1999 and were ready to retire, but could not find a new buyer. When the news of their closing got out, Cluggy’s regulars Melissa and Brian Bentzen stepped in.
The Bentzens will not only own the business, but Cluggy’s games, bowling and bounce houses. They will be leasing the building as well as the outdoor mini golf and go kart areas.
Within 3-9 months, the Bentzens plan to renovate Cluggy’s, adding digital screens that show food menus and activity prices, smart TV’s in birthday areas, adding staff to improve customer service and updating birthday packages to include more options. They also aim to replace play tunnels with a new indoor playground and update the batting cages.
Cluggy’s offers go karts, miniture golf, numerous arcade games and a “tunnel of fun,” a three-story play area for children ages 3–10.
The Bentzens will officially be taking over the business on Feb. 1, with plans for more upgrades and renovations. Cluggy’s is located at 393 Bedington Blvd.
