Tilt Studio opens at Ohio Valley Mall

TILT STUDIO — A variety of colorful games and rides were prepared for business at the Tilt Studio entertainment center at the Ohio Valley Mall.

ST. CLAIRSVILLE — A new entertainment destination officially is open at the Ohio Valley Mall, welcoming guests of all ages.

In 2017, longtime mall tenant Elder-Beerman closed its doors, leaving a large empty space in the building. Mall officials looked to help fill the gap and, although the Marshalls department store opened later that year in a portion of the Elder-Beerman space, there still was empty space in the building to be filled. Luckily, some of that area is now occupied by the Tilt Studio arcade.

Tilt Studio is a family entertainment center that offers a variety of options for customers at the mall. The company is no stranger to the Ohio Valley Mall, previously operating an arcade located near AMC Theaters inside the mall. The new arcade covers 25,000 square feet and expands on the previous location’s offerings. In addition to classic and modern arcade games, Tilt offers laser tag, black light mini-golf, bumper cars and an indoor Tilt-o-Whirl ride. The arcade also features a snack bar for hungry gamers and a party room for customers to rent out for special events.

Candi Noble-Greathouse, marketing director for the mall, said the space between the old Tilt arcade and the Elder-Beerman space is now interconnected, making the location bigger than people might realize at first.

Tilt Studio and the Ohio Valley Mall announced on their Facebook pages recently that the arcade was open for business and awaiting new guests. The studio is open from 10 a.m. until 9 p.m. weekdays.

“As far as I know, everything is moving along,” Noble-Greathouse said. “It’s a nice, bright and fun atmosphere.”

Noble-Greathouse added that such an establishment is something that shoppers have been asking for for some time now, and she believes they’ll be satisfied with Tilt Studio. With the rides, games, party rooms and other amenities and activities it offers, the mall is aiming to make Tilt a one-stop destination for shoppers who are looking for a little fun.
