Whirlyball - Twin Cities - Minneapolis


Whirlyball Twin Cities is an entertainment facility in Twin Cities, Minneapolis featuring activities such as Whirlyball, laser tag, pin bowling and escape room. It also offers event and meeting rooms, a restaurant and an outside bar terrace. This new facility was looking for an all in one lighting system, which through a word of mouth referral from an East Coast associate, they got in touch with Ventola Projects to talk about the VAvR LED lighting range. 


The client initially wanted to install VAvR LED lighting in the eight-lane bowling center, but after meeting with the team they decided to install VAvR into the entire facility. 

For this we used VAvR LUS1200 & CS16 lighting fixtures for the main lighting, and installed additional effect strip lighting, using digital pixel tape and external LED tape, elsewhere. These products give the best light output, and they have a three-in-one capability made up of general white task lighting, color changing mood, or single color lighting. They also have plug-and-play installation, meaning there were savings on electrical installation costs and energy efficiency. 

The installation began late April 2019 and was completed in July. Our US Installer Kool Amusements also assisted during Phase 1 of the installation.


It has been a pleasure working with this customer and introducing them to our new products. This has not only been a great stepping-stone for this type of facility in creating a fun atmosphere, but by adding the 3-in-1 VAvR lighting it will now allow them to control the lighting from one location, and as it is energy efficient it will help to keep costs low compared to convention lighting options. 

This state-of-the-art lighting solution will serve them for years to come.
