A 'little' Big Thrill Factory is set to open at Canterbury Park next month

It's the third location in the Twin Cities.

A smaller version of the Big Thrill Factory is coming to Canterbury Park next month.

It's been dubbed the "Little" Big Thrill Factory, and will feature arcade games, miniature bowling, and a wipeout trampoline, a news release says. The pop-up location will have around 1,500 feet of space inside, while the trampoline will be outside, the Business Journal reports.

“Canterbury Park has been a popular entertainment destination for over 20 years. The addition of an exceptional brand like Big Thrill Factory further solidifies our goal to create a clean, safe and family-friendly experience for our guests," Randy Sampson, Canterbury Park CEO and president, said in a statement.

The venue, located at Canterbury Park in Shakopee, will open for Memorial Day weekend. It's the third location in the Twin Cities, with the others in Minnetonka and Oakdale.
