We want the very best of luck to all of those companies as they leap into the enterprise, however greater than that, if you end up close to any of them, you’ll want to cease by and provides them actual help by enjoying some video games!
Arcade Membership Leeds (Leeds, UK)
We’ll kick issues off with a brand new arcade within the UK, the second location for the esteemed Arcade Membership.

You’ll be able to go to their major web site right here or go to them on Fb.
For the reason that different places don’t have a lot in the best way of media to share, let’s give ACL one other with this very spectacular Gitadora setup (by way of Toby):
Participant One Arcade Pub Launches Kickstarter
A few months in the past, we talked about a brand new bar/arcade that was working to open in Atlanta by the identify of Participant One Arcade Pub. Sadly resulting from an accident that one of many homeowners went by and another issues, they’re about 30% wanting the funds that they should full the challenge and open their doorways. To aim and make up the $65,000 distinction, they’ve launched a Kickstarter, which you’ll find right here.
Arcade Metropolis #5 (Las Vegas, NV)
I typically hear individuals complain that there aren’t any arcades in malls anymore, however I believe that’s simply a kind of frequent misconceptions that hangs out within the cultural ether on the market. For a vacationer in Las Vegas, then you definately’ll have a brand new mall arcade location to get pleasure from for those who drop by the Vogue Present Mall on the Las Vegas Strip. Taking a look at this text, there isn’t a lot data on the sport choice, aside from seeing some basketball machines and crane video games within the photographs. They’ve a Fb web page right here, nevertheless it additionally seems to be like that covers all of their places and never particularly the Vegas one.
The Eberson Classic Arcade(Flint, MI)
A brand new traditional bar/arcade has simply opened their doorways in Flint, MI, by the identify of The Eberson. Named after the architect of the unique constructing that this enterprise calls residence, it brings traditional arcade gaming goodness to the world within a fancy-looking exterior. I solely see one photograph exhibiting the video games at this level, exhibiting only a Centipede and a Ms. Pac-Man, however I’m positive there’s much more than that to get pleasure from. You could find their major web site right here (H/T Replay Journal).
Primary Occasion Increasing Into Louisiana
The growth of FEC’s throughout the USA is constant sturdy with the opening of Primary Occasion’s first Louisiana location happening “this summer time” on the Mall of Louisiana. There isn’t any details about the arcade portion of the ability to share, however they’ve virtually 50,000 sq. ft. to play with, so I think about that it will likely be a large arcade with a combination/setup just like different Primary Occasion places. Through Replay Journal.
C&C Ice Cream & Arcade Opening In July (Anderson, SC)
Additionally by way of Replay is information of a retrocade location opening their doorways this July. Known as C&C Ice Cream & Arcade (which jogs my memory of C&C Music Manufacturing facility 😛 ), this location is bringing collectively a small variety of traditional titles (Donkey Kong, Galaga, Frogger, & Ms. Pac-Man are talked about) whereas serving up hard-serve ice cream. This text has somewhat extra element about what they plan to do, however I haven’t discovered any social media presence for them but.

The situation is being setup on the K1Speed facility there, however it’s unknown if this can be a everlasting or short-term set up. Learn the announcement right here.
G4CE Modifications Their Title To Allegiant Non-Cease
I lately heard about Allegiant Airways swooping into the mega FEC enterprise after their opened their first location in Utah (about 45 minutes north of me), however the identify of the placement didn’t point out the Allegiant possession because it was known as “G4CE.” Apparently they weren’t pleased with the identify or obtained buyer suggestions and have modified it to Allegiant Non-Cease. Whereas it sounds higher, I believe the issue is that nobody thinks of leisure after they consider airways, so one would possibly nonetheless assume it’s associated to their flight enterprise after they first hear it. I nonetheless haven’t had an opportunity to verify the place out, however everybody I’ve talked to who has been there got here away impressed.
That’s all I’ve gathered for this put up, which was surprisingly gentle on the media as I couldn’t discover good snapshots of the arcades themselves for many of the amenities. Both means, you’ll want to get out and play!
