Not Your Parents Basement, a gaming lounge at 410 Main St., opened at 4 p.m. Friday to the public.

Owner Ian Ballantyne said he always wanted to have a place like this to go to when he was younger. The lounge features 30 gaming computers, a gaming console lounge, virtual reality, board game room and tournament area.

The lounge is open to people ages 16 and over, but children between the ages 12 and 15 can attend if their parents sign a permission slip.
