Huge retro arcade in Czech Republic

  • Deleted user 11 March 2015 12:25:01
    A colleague mentioned this to me yesterday, and it looks awesome. I haven't been yet (it's outside of Prague, where I live), but I'm hoping to go with my brother if/when he comes over from London to see me. We grew up in a seaside town with lots of arcades, which are now full of godawful gambling machines, so this is hugely appealing.

    Just thought I'd mention it because Prague's a pretty popular destination, and this looks well worth a day-trip if anybody's considering coming here. I mean, look at it!

    Wow...can you get a fortnight pass? Do they do beer too?
  • Deleted user 27 March 2015 12:43:41
    @DaM
    From their FAQ.

    5. How much is the admission?
    All day ticket for adult is 200 CZK, for a school kid 130 CZK and for a preschool kid 50 CZK. If you arrive for last two hours before closing you pay just 130 for adult, 100 for a schoolchild and 50 for preschool child. There is no need to insert coins into the Arcade machines, all of them operate for free.

    6. Is it possible to buy some drink?
    There is a cooling box in Arena with beverages in pet bottles and cans. Common range of non-alcoholic drinks and Pilsner beer is complemented with energy drinks and radlers.
    At current exchange rates, CZK 200 is just over a fiver.

    That's the kind of basement setup I day dream about if I won the Euro lottery.

    Wow - that's amazing. I also dream about having a basement (or attic) that is basically that. :)
