Arcade locations
« on: February 07, 2016, 11:55:26 PM »
Hey Guys,

Since awhile I am mapping all the arcades that I can find and in the meantime I have found quite a lot of locations. Right now I have 116 added to my map at http://www.arcadeuniverse.net/arcade-map/​ . Do you guys have some tips for arcades that I am still missing?

Regards,

Pieter

There is this list from ArcadeBelgium but not many have more than 10 cabs: http://www.arcadebelgium.be/ab.php?l=en&r=loc&p=list
There is also this cool website by liquidx but it's only about pinballs: http://findapinball.com

Cool Site, Pieter.

When I visited prague, there were a arcade in the middle of the town, I made some pictures from outside. My mistake was when I passed it the first time with my colleagues, I didnt go in because I had the plan to visit it next morning - and guess what, they had closed  >:(.
So I cant tell anything about the amount of cabs.

But on the other side, I will do some pictures from the arcade in our cinema. They rebuilt the cinema so I didnt visit the arcade and dont know if its that big as before.

Netherlands:

http://www.funhousevlissingen.nl

http://funhouserenesse.nl

Those still have videogames last time I checked. Actually the one in Renesse had REMOVED all the money gambling machines and was videogames and ticket games ONLY !!! But that was about a year ago....

I was in Valkenburg around Christmas last year but the last one with videogames there ( Copacabana ) is now gambling only.

By the looks of the website Hommerson Scheveningen is now gambling only too :(  :(

For some real fun go to:
http://www.dutchpinballmuseum.com


Looks like Hall of Game didn't make it: http://www.faillissementsdossier.nl/nl/faillissement/1045404/hall-of-game-b-v.aspx

Thanks for the suggestions guys, I will work on these to add as much as possible to the map.

The Belgium arcades I have with the exception of the holiday parks as they might not be publicly accessible. But thank you for the link though, it is huge! I will double check the smaller arcades too maybe they have more in the meantime. Thanks for the suggestions.

Thanks Andreas, is the arcade http://www.arcadehry.cz/museum by any chance? I will be in Prague the 31st of March and the 1st of April. So I might want to check it out.

Thanks for the suggestions, I will check them all out. And yes it is a pity Hall of Game did not survive, they had a decent amount of cabs actually.These are great additions I did not yet have.

@Level42, I have added the majority of the Arcades including Hall of Game for completeness sake and marked it as closed permanently.

The pinball museum looks like great fun indeed, I need to bring my son there as well! :D

Thanks for the locations.

Hey Guys,

Thanks to your contributions I managed to get a total of 138 locations on the map up to now. It is my goal to have 500 arcade locations on the map before the 1st of July. Still a massive quest but I am confident this will work. So if you have any additional suggestions please let me know.

Regards,

Pieter

@Sphere

I never visited one of the arcades in prague, but look here:

https://www.google.at/search?q=arcade+prague&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&gws_rd=cr&ei=bsS9VuLHHKu_ygPR5L_ACg

I want to definitely visit both of them!

In the meantime I have done a new update and I now have 165 locations on the maps.

Do you guys know of any arcades in Ireland though? So far I have not been able to find any although I know there is 1 in Dublin.

Hi,

not sure if this is what you are looking for, but there is a pinball museum in Neuwied, Germany: http://www.flippermuseum.eu/ They have more than 150 pinballs in there, but you have to pay per game. You need to buy Deutsche Mark and you can get them cheaper if you buy more, but it still gets quite expensive very fast. Otherwise, it's a great location and they have really cool machines.

Furthermore, there is a company named Solf. They have amusement halls mostly for gambling machines in the area of Bonn and Cologne, but they also have a few pinballs (up to 3 - 4 per hall) and some Naomis and also dedicated arcade cabs in there. http://www.solf.de/01_spielstaetten/index.html
The one at the Friedensplatz in Bonn has three pinballs, a 4 player Outrun 2, a Twin Sega Rally 3, some lightgun games (I think there was a House of the Dead 4 and Ghost Squad) and some Naomis with Soccer and Tennis Games. Pinballs have been Spider-Man, Medieval Madness and Pirates of the Caribean.
The other amusement halls also have some pinballs and arcades, but I don't know which.
It's not something worth to go there only for this, but if you are near by, it is definitely worth a visit.
`Contrariwise,' continued Tweedledee, `if it was so, it might be; and if it were so, it would be; but as it isn't, it ain't. That's logic.'

Thanks for sharing SeTTleR, I will look into those. My main focus is on arcade cabinets of at least 10 and if they have pinballs that would be nice too but arcade cabinets are a must. Thanks for the suggestions!

Thanks for the heads up Behle, I have added the location to the map as well. Good luck with the arcade, I hope it will be a great success!
