At the Arcade Expo
There are hundreds of games ready to be played at the Louisville Arcade Expo. Purchase a one-day ticket for $20, or enjoy the whole weekend of gaming for $45. The Expo is open Friday from 2 pm to midnight. On Saturday, it’s open from 10 am to midnight. Sunday, the Expo is open from 10 am to 4 pm. That gives you many, many hours of play time.
Play Duck Hunt, Jurassic Park, Wizard of Oz and Doctor Who pinball machines, to name just a few. At the full-size arcade games, you’ll find classics like Capcom’s Alien vs. Predator, NBA Jam, Star Wars, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Breakout will all be at the Expo.
Go to the console gaming area to find the machines made in the 1970s, ‘80s and ‘90s. Rare machines, like the Apple II and Commodore 64, will be present. And because this event is all about games and gaming, kids who are 10 and younger get in for free with an adult admission. Of course, you may find that you’ll have more fun if you leave the kids at home!
All the fun begins on March 7 at the Ramada Plaza at 1776 Plantside Drive.
The Ramada Plaza is easy to find. It’s in the middle of a busy commercial district that offers restaurants, shopping, fitness centers and more. Outside this commercial district, you’ll find several beautiful Louisville neighborhoods.
The city of Hurstbourne Acres is just blocks away from the Ramada Plaza. This community holds regular town meetings, and has its own City Hall. Hurstbourne Acres is famous for Stanley B. Welch park. He was the former mayor of Hurstbourne Acres. Speaking of acres, the park takes up one and a half of them, providing plenty of green spaces for children to run and play and for adults to relax. There’s a brick wellhouse at the park that’s more than 100 years old. The annual city Summer Picnic and Easter Egg Hunt are held at the park every year. The park is open to all residents who want to enjoy it, though visitors are always welcome as well.
Before a night of free play indoors, go to the park to soak up a little sun. This part of Louisville offers all different types of fun, so why not enjoy more than one?
