Creative Works Celebrates 15th Anniversary

September 12, 2012 No Comments

The entertainment industry celebrates with Creative Works its 15th year in business.  When most vendor companies in this industry open and close their doors within three years, this company has outlasted and grown nearly four times.  Since 1997, Creative Works has had one vision – to deliver the WOW effect one client at a time.  “From the day I started this company, I wanted to ensure that the client came first, and their expectations were surpassed each time they entrusted us with their business,” said Jeff Schilling, the founder and Chief Architect of Experiences for the company.   “With over 360 clients now from various parts around the globe, we have been fortunate to design and develop some incredible facilities.”
Creative Works started out taking sport-style laser tag arenas manufactured from sewer tubes and glowing plastics pieces to building fully immersive themed arenas built like movie stage sets that makes you part of the game. This helped revitalize and change the laser tag industry over time and raised the bar to opening this attraction.  Through this experience, the company added Cosmic black light miniature golf as well as their award-winning Lazer Frenzy laser maze to their portfolio of attractions.  Just recently, the company came out with their mobile gaming business called The Game Patrol as well as their Mirror Amaze product.
During the last decade, Creative Works has evolved into a multi-faceted company with proven attractions and helpful services.  They’ve worked with well over 1,000 individuals and companies at various stages to assist in designing and developing their entertainment center.  Currently they host and attend multiple seminars each year to help new developers get their questions answered and provide the resources they need.   Additionally, they provide personal tours of their 20,000-square-foot Theme Factory where everything is designed and built, as well as tours of their 7,000-square-foot showroom filled with multiple attractions.
