kid rules

We’re on a mission to save the arcade and bring real-deal, authentic games to everyone! Still, guests under 13 must be accompanied by an adult (and supervised to the extent necessary to ensure common courtesy to the facilities, other patrons, and similar). And though we cannot require it, we’d suggest taking this amazing opportunity to create lasting memories with your kids by sharing the games and playing alongside them during your visit! Additionally, from Sunday through Thursday, you must be 18 or older to remain in Free Play after 9:00 PM. On Friday and Saturday, you must be 21 or older to remain in Free Play after 9:00 PM. Not only does that help balance the crowd, it’s the law!
