Marion Hot Wheelz Celebrates Expansion of Arcade
On Tuesday, August 17th, 2021, local business owners Steve and Tiffany Bush welcomed friends, family, and various familiar faces to Marion Hot Wheelz to celebrate their skating rink and newly expanded arcade.
It is a scary thing to open a business, but it came with much more uncertainty for Steve and Tiffany. Marion Hot Wheelz celebrated their grand opening at the end of 2020, when the COVID-19 pandemic was still causing shut downs and mask mandates. That didn’t stop Steve and Tiffany, from cautiously opening their doors to the public. When the idea came along to expand the arcade, Steve got to work. The arcade is now open to the public with games for all ages and skill levels. Steve and Tiffany saw a need for an activity that welcomed kids, families and people of all ages. A skating rink with an expansive arcade was a great way to execute that vision.
As the former Executive Director for the McDowell Chamber of Commerce, Steve met and worked with many people in McDowell County. Some of these people include: Brandi Behlke of Edward Jones; Bob Boyette, Marion City Manager; Mayor Steve Little; Ann Harkey, City Councilwoman; Todd Miller of G.E.M; Larrisa Honeycutt of G.E.M.; Marion Police Chief Allen Lawrence; Investigations Lieutenant Rusty Jenkins; Executive Director of the Marion Business Association, Freddie Killough; and Walt Bagwell of Jeff Kincaid Insurance Group. Everyone offered Steve and Tiffany words of encouragement and support.
Marion Hot Wheelz is located in suite H of the Larry D. Miller Complex on Logan Street in downtown Marion. Currently, they are open Wednesday, Thursday and Friday 3pm-10pm; Saturday, 11am-10pm; and Sunday, 1pm-8pm. Make sure you check this family friendly space in Marion.
