In more good news for North of the River, Malys Entertainment Center will have a formal press conference at 1 p.m. on Friday at North Little Rock’s City Hall.

The $28 million project will be on Crystal Hill Road and occupy the site that was once Wild River Country.

The developer is Conway cardiologist Dr. James Thomas and construction will start this this year with an open date sometime in 2023.

The 30-acre site will be a one-stop attraction, said North Little Rock spokeswoman Shara Booth Brazear, and “will have something for everyone.”

It will include, among other things,:

  • T-Time golf, an electronic driving range

  • HyperLanes bowling

  • A virtual arcade

  • Restaurants 

  • Shopping

“We are thrilled to welcome Malys Entertainment Center to North Little Rock,” said North Little Rock Mayor Terry Hartwick. “As an avid golfer, I am pleased Dr. Thomas chose North Little Rock to showcase T-Time, HyperLanes and all of the other attractions the entertainment center will offer all of Central Arkansas, surrounding areas as well as visitors to our city. Economic Development in North Little Rock has an exciting momentum and innovative possibilities.”
