Main Event Entertainment announced a partnership with internet sensation and renowned Shirley Temple expert Leo Kelly, aka The Shirley Temple King, to launch a line of Shirley Temples available today across its 44 centers nationwide.

The line of beverages includes three new drinks:

  1. The Classic Shirley: Featuring a blue, sugary rim, the perfect amount of cherries, ginger ale and Rose’s grenadine, resulting in the King-approved “perfect color”
  2. The Cotton Candy Shirley: The Classic Shirley with a choice of pink or blue cotton candy on top to add a delicious color combo to the drink
  3. The Floaty Shirley: What can make any Shirley delicious is a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top of the classic recipe, creating the perfect combo of bubbly and creamy

Each drink is garnished with a candy gummy cherry, unicorn candy bacon and, of course, three maraschino cherries (because the King needs at least three). Guests can even add-on a candy sucker straw for even more fun and tastiness. The Shirley Temple King began reviewing Shirley Temples in 2019 and has sampled more than 200 varieties all over the country.

“It’s a dream come true to create my own unique line of Shirley Temples,” says Leo Kelly, aka The Shirley Temple King. “I had so much fun building these drinks with Main Event and they are definitely King-approved! I cannot wait for kids and families across the country to enjoy all of them.”

“When we saw Leo’s reviews for the first time, we knew we had to bring his enthusiasm and expertise into the development of our first-ever line of Shirley Temples,” says Sarah Beddoe, Chief Brand Officer, Main Event Entertainment. “We are all about fun, memorable moments for our guests and we think this line only adds more to the one-of-kind experience our guests expect when spending time at Main Event.”

The new line of Shirley Temples adds to the All-American fare of the Main Event menu. Featuring hand-crafted pizzas, juicy burgers, flavorful wings and a wide variety of appetizers and beverages, the Main Event dining experience only enhances a trip inside the entertainment center.

The new line of Shirley’s will start at $2.99 and will be available in all Main Event centers, starting today.
