1301 SW Gage Blvd was a Showbiz Pizza Place restaurant located in Topeka, Kansas.


Topeka, KS opened its doors on December 1st, 1980, as the Second store in Kansas. This was one of 18/19 stores to receive a Beta RockAfire Explosion show, though it was very bit different in several ways. Not much is known about the store while it was open outside of the Beta Rock-afire. They would close forever in either 1985 or 1986. After the closure, the animatronics were sold off in an auction. This led CEI to buy back the show from a third party and send a letter to SPT. The building itself was gutted and was replaced by a few businesses over the years before the building was demolished in the 2020s and replaced by an Amoco Gas Station and Max's restaurant.

As of April 2024, the Amoco Gas Station and Max's restaurant are still there.


Originally when the store opened, they had a Rock-Afire Explosion, they were the 6th RAE installed, and until closure, they kept the "Beta" bots, which had hollow frames.
