XRKADE is a state-of-the-art 25,000-square foot facility that will be introduced to local youth Wednesday, July 29, at 4 p.m.
XRKADE will add a new experience for the youth in the community.
The XRKADE Club is a cutting-edge environment and experience complete with the most advanced active gaming and entertainment systems where people become a "human joystick."
The environment will include equipment like the Light Space, XRBoards, Xavix, Tread Climbing Wall and more. Participants get to engage in unique physical challenges while getting the added benefit of moving and being physically active.
"The addition of the XRKADE will not only add exciting new programming and equipment to our facility, but it will assist the YMCA in bridging the gap to better serve the teen population in our community and combat childhood obesity on a local level," YMCA of Clay County Executive Director Chad Zaucha said.
