The arena is one of the first of its kind in the United States, though it has gained popularity in Europe. 

“It’s the best thing that we have going right now. No one else has it. We’re definitely excited about bringing that aspect of the industry,” Evans said. “We know that there’s a bunch of different parks that can do some of the stuff that we do here, but no one else has this.”
