Location Review : Phoenix Arcade @ The Summit

SaraAB87 May 27, 2008 3

Here in Niagara Falls, NY there is a mall called The Summit and in addition to the Krow’s Nest with the bowling machines there is another arcade called Phoenix arcade. They have 2 storefronts in the mall. They have a wide variety of games between both their storefronts including the original Outrun simulator, classic games, some modern games, prize cranes, foosball, air hockey and much more. Their newly opened arcade is decorated very nicely on the outside. Here is a video of the newly opened arcade.

Overall the location is very clean, the games are priced cheaply at 25 and 50 cents per play, however this location suffers from many of the problems that classic arcades suffer from such as dead games and lots of monitor problems on the games. The phoenix arcade has quite a few games though and keeping up with them must not be that easy.

A video of their other storefront in the mall will follow in a short while.

    Excellent video Sara, they have some great games there. I was surprised to see games like Battle Shark and Dark Adventure, I would love to play there although it looks a little too bright, I hate getting glare in the screen.

    I am a volunteer for the IVGHOF International Video Game Hall Of Fame. We just recently had our first year with Big Bang 2010. Which was a big success. We are already planning next year. The reason I am writing to you is I would like to know if you have a brochure for your facility. I am collecting them to put together a tribute to all the arcades that are still out there and promoting classic arcades. Anything that you can send that has your company logo on it and tells anything about your facility to add to the tribute would be greatly appreciated. If you know of any arcades out there that have anything that they would like to send to me please feel free to spread the word. Please send them to:

    Thanks again for your time and thanks for keeping classic arcades still going strong.
