Information

2/20/2019 UPDATE: The PIU Infinity machine has *likely* been shipped off to a new Big Al's location opening up in California, and this location will *probably* be getting a new PIU machine (likely Prime 2 or XX). None of this is super confirmed for sure and is very much subject to change, but it's something to keep in mind for the future. I'm really gonna miss the Infinity machine, but I'll be interested to see what ends up replacing it.

Combination bowling alley/arcade/sports bar.
Games are pretty well maintained for the most part.
Staff are friendly and regularly play the PIU machine.
This location is the best place to play Pump and DDR in the area, and many local players seem to come here.

Water is free if you go to the food/drink/ice cream counter down on the first floor towards the back.

Location uses a card swipe system for games - You purchase a reloadable "Fun Card" that stores money and earned tickets from games. If you spend $500 on your card you become a VIP get 15% off of games.
Various deals for half off/unlimited games are available and supposedly cover rhythm games as well (https://www.ilovebigals.com/meridian/arcade/#arcade-daily-deals), though I have never tried these myself.

Location: 2nd floor - Take the stairs on the left, machine is in an easy to spot location
Comment: Pads are undersensitive and tend to sometimes drop holds as a result, but still very much playable. Seems like they worked on the pads as they're working better, but still not quite perfect.

Comment: Right flipper is weak, and both flippers are angled slightly higher than they should be, making you miss a lot of shots.

• Comment changed to "Machine is on final update. Screen has severe burn in but it doesn't affect gameplay. The P1 arrows don't seem to be sticking as much as they have been. Machine reboots with two players in pro mode (and occasionally at other times, too), and I've personally had really bad luck with USB support. Overall though in near perfect condition, and the best pump machine in the area hands down.".

Machine occasionally reboots with two players under certain circumstances, and is VERY picky about flash drives.

• Comment changed to "Machine is on final update. Screen has severe burn in but it doesn't affect gameplay. P1 pad needs some minor work, but otherwise plays perfectly. Staff play this machine regularly so issues will be fixed. Machine reboots if both players on pro mode and your last song is going to be a shortcut. Playing your shortcut first seems to fix this issue.".
