An indoor action park and retail center will open its doors in Peoria in 2024.
Phoenix-based commercial real estate company Avison Young announced it has negotiated a 34,425-square-foot, 10-year lease with Slick City Action Park on behalf of the ownership of Thunderbird Village, an 85,000-squre-foot retail center located on the northwest corner of 75th Avenue and Thunderbird Road.
Slick City Action Park will be a new park featuring indoor slides (no water), air courts, four-level soft play, a trapeze, swing, and zip line designed for all ages. Located at 7518 W. Thunderbird Road, Slick City will open its doors early next year.
“Slick City Action Park will be located within the southern portion of the former Bashas' grocery space,” Avison Young Principal James DeCremer shared in a press release. “They are in the process of transforming the space into a fun-filled action park with innovative, family-friendly attractions that will provide a welcome venue to the local community. There has been a post-pandemic rebound for events, entertainment and dining as people seek to spend their free time participating in unique experiential activities.”
The location will also include food and beverage options and 3,000 square feet of event space.
The Peoria site marks Slick City Actions Park’s first Arizona location and its fourth location nationwide with parks open in Denver and St. Louis, and another opening in Katy, Texas, this year.
Built in 2002 and situated on approximately 10 acres, Thunderbird Plaza went from 50% vacant when Basha’s vacated in 2022 to 100% occupied with the signing of Slick City, Pickle Guild, which will open late 2023 or early 2024, and I Heart Mac N Cheese and Jet’s Pizza that will both open early next year.
