Hey guys, I am a local to Twentynine for 4 years now. I am in the process of getting my business loan approved right now and wanted some feed back from y'all. What would you think of a modern arcade in 29? I am nearly done with the paperwork process, well about halfway, I found my spot I want, the old Mango Hut spot near the post office. I tried for a better location but everything on the main strips dont have kitchens. I want to do pizza, basic carnival style foods there, and use the old dining area as a gaming center. But a modern one, with 8 X Boxes on the wall, a WII station, a long table under the front windows for laptops. Music on, a few old school arcade games, claw machine, gum ball machines so on... and a seating area with tables and bean bags for football games that come on TV. I have children and have had a hard time finding a local cheap spot for my kids to hangout. Would you visit us? What would you like to see? I am thinking setting up outdoor tables too, just an all around youth hangout spot.

Well, I would rather bring my kids to a typical arcade...tokens and arcade games. We have a game system so bringing them somewhere else to pay for the same thing they can do at home does not seem like something I would do.

I will tell you what I would LOVE!! A roller rink ;o)

I wish you luck on your venture!! 

Andi29 --- 6 years ago -

Thanks! But we will have food and friends to meetup, music, football games on the flat screen so on. Look for our grand opening sometime in April or a month before or after.

The old Mango Hut is very small, barely enough room to eat. Can't imagine it would offer elbow room for gaming and eating.

There use to be a arcade, go-kart track and paint ball park in 29 Palms. It lasted for maybe one season...sooooooooooooo GOOD LUCK!!!!

Hey, thanks guys! When was the arcade active in 29?

And yeah, I know its super small. Its what I can afford to start and not many vacant spots in 29 have a full service kitchen in them either. Im doing more of a cafe style food area not really "restaurant" style. So I think it will work. I get free reign to remodel too.

That would be nice

I know right! Can you imagine, a hot summer day and having a place to take the kids! Gee, if only...lol

There used to be a skating rink a long time ago and a theater. The old arcade used to be across the street from the banks in town. It is now a karate and florist store. It was called The Silver Quarter Arcade. 

SewnLove --- 6 years ago -

yup, my hubby said there was a small skating rink right next to the bowladium. I heard awhile back that they were going to open one up in Yucca.

Wasn't there also an arcade in the building across from Edchadas on 62 (seems like 2 years ago or so)? 

AnnonyMiss --- 6 years ago -

I'd go there with my pre teen son. I didn't read all but if you set up a wifi hot spot it would be great as well.

Any thing that offers something new to do with the kids I would welcome! Hope this is a huge success! Good luck!
