Good Times of Olean is scheduled to open in July of 2013,

Good Times of Olean 
is scheduled to open in July of 2013, and is what many are calling one of the most exciting facilities to have ever opened in the area.

Good Times of Olean will feature three new restaurants, an event center, bowling alley, gaming room, miniature golf course, pool tables, darts, card tables, outdoor sand volleyball courts, batting cages for baseball and softball, an enormous outdoor patio on the first and second floors, and plenty of space outdoors for additional events and activities.

Our goal is to make this the absolute best entertainment, recreation and dining facility in the Twin Tiers. Our focus is providing a quality, safe, clean and entertaining environment to anyone who visits. We look forward to sharing our passion for fun with the community when they visit us at Good Times of Olean!

Key Points:

 Alcohol will be served at Good Times of Olean. Hammer Back Bar & Grill and The Point will be home to the main bar areas. However, there will be some areas in Good Times of Olean that alcohol will not be permitted. For example: the gaming room and other areas that children and minors will be the target for activities will not allow alcohol.
 Good Times of Olean will hold a 1,400 person event center/multi-purpose room which will be available for community events, indoor activities like kickball and volleyball during the winter, school proms, wedding receptions, wellness fairs, expos, concerts and more. The possibilities for this space are endless! Seating in the event center is 500 people.
 Good Times of Olean will also be home to a state of the art 16 lane bowling alley. Leagues will be starting in the fall for multiple teams, however be assured that we will keep plenty of lanes available for open bowl. We understand that leagues are
very important to a bowling alley, but we want to ensure that families and community members will have lanes available for them also.

 The total cost for the facility is currently around $7 million, not $5.7 million
 Owners are West Long and Todd Scott, both from Portville, NY.
Restaurant Information: Good Times of Olean will be home to a new steak and seafood restaurant called “The Point” as well as a new bar and grill called “Hammer Back Bar & Grill,” and will also have a made-to-order restaurant called the “Snak Shak”.
 The Point- Seats 144 people and an additional 18 at the bar. The Point will be a family friendly restaurant but is still upscale. However, The Point is designed to not turn off customers who want to wear jeans and a t-shirt to lunch or dinner.
 Hammer Back Bar & Grill- Seats 88 people and can hold 31 stools at the bar. Here is where you’ll be able to watch the game, hang out, in a very casual dining atmosphere.
 Snak Shak- Will have made to order food items like pizza, hot dogs, hamburgers, nachos, ice cream, etc and customers will be able to order not only from inside of Good Times, but also from outside the building. Need a quick lunch or don’t want to disrupt your softball game? The Snak Shak is the place for you!

Additional Information:

 Good Times of Olean is restoring the 18 hole miniature golf that was originally found at Forness Park. This is a phenomenal course that we guarantee the community will enjoy playing on again.
 There will be 4 outdoor beach volleyball courts at Good Times of Olean. Leagues will be able to play on these courts, and of course they’ll be open to the public as well.
 Good Times of Olean sits on almost 10 acres of land, so there will be plenty of space for outdoor activities at the facility.

It is near Bradner's Stadium, at the softball entrance of Forness Park on East State St. It is big, you can't miss it.

now why cant coudersport pa have something like this for are kids in town it will bring in the money

Mr Realistic said...

Why are you dimwits so obsessed with building things in Coudersport and supporting the finances of Coudersport? The town does not have the population and the infrastructure to support something like this. Heck...nobody can even manage a gameroom, pool hall, or bowling alley in town. Just buck up campers and make the drive to Olean where there are actually decent places to eat after 6pm and 7 days a week and other things to do.

Dead on the money Mr Realistic!

Mr Realistic obviously has an ax to grind and hates the world. Had the other poster said Roulette, Austin or Port I'm sure Mr Realistic would be either supportive or we'd hear nothing from him. Unfortunately, that wasnt the case. Question is why can't ANY town have something like that scaled properly to the population. Meanwhile Mr Realistic will be sitting ih his trailer, surfing the internet, blogging and complaining about everything he can. Been a slow few months for Mr Realistic with wind mill and fracking arguments dying down, so a wonderful new business in the Olean community and a harmless comment from a reader about having a facility like that in our midst was just what he needed to get back on track in being a miserable SOB.

Glad you're back Mr Realistic, I/we had nearly forgotten how narrow minded and negative some of our fellow neighbors are here in the area.

Sorry folks, but Mr. Realistic is BEING realistic!!! Not enough population for a big buildng with lots to do in it to exist in Coudy, Galeton, Shinglehouse, Port, NoPo, Emporium, or Austin. They are for the BIGGER cities. I suggest just drive there(50 min.) & enjoy yourself.
