Information

An arcade location located in a shopping district in the city. The ratio between redemption and non-redemption games is around 60:40. There is a couple of strength games, and they might be very noticeable.

One can park his/her car in a nearby parking garage for about €2,00/hr up to a max of €10,10/day. A lot of children and teenagers at peak times (~16.00-18.00). Public transport is fine, about 5 min. walk.

A very loud arcade location. All games requires a store card, which can be purchased for €0,50. Queues are at times very long.
Regulars spending a predetermined amount of funds may receive a special card and are egible for 10% off of all games.

Home of the first Dutch StepManiaX players.

More games are being moved. They will be swapped with something else.
Thumbsy4 months agoThumbsy
New SMX production cab pending shipment though, so it will be back in the future! Just no clear ETA at the moment.
CnZ5 months agoCnZ
No more SMX - Dedicab is moved to Germany. It was fun while it lasted.
Thumbsy10 months agoThumbsy
Did a little further updating. I will doublecheck next time I visit because I feel I might have missed some things (and perhaps accidentally removed a game from the list that was actually still there)
CnZ11 months agoCnZ
Will update when I have time to take inventory.

Stuck arrows are getting worse, I hear there are new sensors coming; obviously not installed. Personally, I am getting a bit obnoxious playing there without proper working arrows.
Thumbsy5 years agoThumbsy
Gonna give this arcade's entry a full update once I've visited this place! Decided to add it in advance since I was notified of an X2 being present here :)
