ShowBiz Pizza Zone was a restaurant and arcade fashioned after ShowBiz Pizza Place that operated in Phenix City, Alabama. It was opened in 2008 by Chris Thrash, a Phenix City, Alabama car salesman. It featured an entire fully operational Rock-afire Explosion, which he funded with money he raised by working multiple part-time jobs. On May 30, 2010, Showbiz Pizza Zone closed down. However, Thrash still maintains the building and the show privately, and he occasionally rents it out for birthday parties.
