Roll on this weekend.

The new place will have about 200 machines ! It's moving from Haslingden to Bury (easy to get to from Manchester) this weekend. This is the guy who supplies most of the shows with machines

Hope RG do an interview with him. Largest arcade outside of the US. Only £10 to get in. All machines on free play

Never visited it in Haslingden but I'm planning on going down to the new location in the next month or so, looks like about a 20 minute walk from the Metrolink!

I am ever just so slightly excited..

Looks great but I don't fancy a 250 mile trek to get there.

Ahhh - yes. Spector loves this place. He mentioned it a few times on the IRC. Good luck to the guys who are running it - it must be tough to get these places up and running - and also making a profit.

An absolute sin that I never made it to Haslingdon when they were there...will be going to this new place for sure, especially with the more flexible opening hours.

Ironically, I'll be at a Halloween party in Haslingdon on their opening night in Bury! :lol:
