Rochester, MN, December 20, 2019 --(PR.com
)-- A brand new family fun center is coming to downtown Rochester. Opening Friday, December 20, Rochester Games & Arcade will feature a large variety of over 60 classic and modern arcade games and pinball machines. They will also feature an extensive menu full of old-fashioned shakes, malts, and ice cream all served all from an ice cream bar, and a classic video-game sales center. A partnership with the Ironside Axe Club (www.ironsideaxeclub.com) will provide axe throwing lanes for those looking to test their dexterity. The venue will be available for birthdays, corporate gatherings, and other events.
“Our ultimate goal is to bring families and people of all ages together to relive their childhoods, it’s all about being a kid again. We always hope to recreate the lost magic of an 80s arcade,” says Owner Jason Shiffer.
You won't need to purchase a single token to join the fun. At Rochester Games & Arcade, all the games are set to free-play. Guests pay for a one-day pass that allows them to come and go throughout the day as they please. Passes are only $10 for everyone on the weekdays and $12 on Saturdays. There are future plans for in-house food, but that doesn't mean you'll go hungry in the meantime. The arcade will order pizza at the request of patrons.
“We have seating for parties on our second floor mezzanine, where guests can relax and view the arcade in action,” Mr. Shiffer adds.
There was a soft opening for media personnel on Thursday, December 19. If you produce content for a media outlet of any kind, be sure to stop by and sample what the new location has to offer.
