History

Dale City opened on February 15th, 1993, with a 2-Stage. The store would be remodeled a few times, until March of 2018, when there was a fire outside the building that damaged the building, forcing them to receive the 2.0 remodel. As of March 2023, the store still has the 2.0 remodel.

Stages

The store opened with a 2-Stage. They kept their 2-Stage up until March 2018 when an exterior fire damaged the store badly which made them start their 2.0 remodel which lasted roughly 7 months. The 2.0 remodel added the Pizzeria and Games logo, Play Pass machines, removal of Skytubes and stage, and a nicer interior. Dale City was the last Cyberamic store in northern Virginia and the third to last in the state; this was also the last 2-Stage in Virginia that didn't come from a closed store. The final MMBB stage in Virginia was Chesapeake, VA (1528 Sam's Circle) which used animatronics from the Merced location that closed in 1995.
