We haven’t received many news items on new arcades opening in the state of Iowa, but if you live in or near the town of Grimes, then that is changing on January 17th thanks to the new Old School Pinball And Arcade. As the name implies, they are a classic arcade with a focus on video games and pinball but the also will be offering malts, shakes, sodas to enjoy including “Old Fashioned Sodas with phosphates!”.
For their game selection, they are starting with “50+ games with more on the way”…some of those include: Big Buck Hunter, Burgertime, Centipede, Dig Dug, Donkey Kong, Frogger, Galaga, Madden Football, Millipede, Missile Command, Ms. Pac-Man, Operation Wolf, Pole Position, Space Invaders, Sprint 2, Tekken 3, Turbo, Vortek V3 and much more. For pinball they have Apollo 13, Family Guy, Funhouse, Hurricane, Indiana Jones (Bally), the Lord of the Rings, Monopoly, Roller Coaster Tycoon, the Shadow, Star Trek (Limited Edition), South Park, The Walking Dead (Pro), Who Dunnit, The X-Files and more. They are doing an admission model where the games are on free play – minus the “Premium Room” where that uses a standard pay-to-play model.
We wish them the best of luck in business and if you are anywhere close, give them your support by dropping by!
