In November 2011, after a thorough search, an old Armstrong World Industries distribution center in Manheim, Pennsylvania was purchased and the dream was launched.  
 The Spooky Nook group knew the building (which sits on 65 acres) was big, but they didn’t realize quite how big. As they researched their plans, they discovered that it would be nearly twice the size of the next biggest sports complex facility in the country. In fact, they are not aware of any indoor sports complex quite this big anywhere else in the world! 

And, on November 9th, those attending the Big 60 Basketball Showcase got a taste of the size and splendor.  The next Nook project is a hotel and restaurant coming soon!!
