Epicenter

Epicenter – Austell

Epicenter is a multi media and multi faceted family entertainment center right off I-20; very accessible to downtown Atlanta. Owned by the Word of Faith church, it delivers to the community a bundle of features that appeal to all budgets and ages. Bowling alley, state of the art fitness/spa center, cafes, specially designed room for toddlers, and a rock climbing await your guests. Most areas can be rented for private events. Moreover, the Epicenter has the distinction of being the training location of the Atlanta Dream, the WNBA team. The building is structurally attractive with very sculptural clean lines both outside and inside.  There is a main ballroom, known as the “Nile” which has a dance floor area and can accommodate up to 260 seated guests for a buffet or seated dinner. The accompanying partitioned off smaller room, known as “Jordan”  can seat up to 220 people. Both ballrooms can be rented separately or together. The ceremony space in the theatre houses seating for approximately 500 people and is adjacent to upstairs and downstairs private reception areas.  There are multiple possible reception areas which, in total, can accommodate up to 1200 people. According to the onsite special events co-coordinator, booking should be done at least year to 1 ½ years in advance. 50% deposit is required and balance is due 30 days before event date. Wedding packages are currently being revised and information will be available in the near future.
