The Lock Ins at Astro City
This is a great concept from the folks who run Astro City. Lock-Ins involve paying a small fee of five pounds that allows you unlimited access to the machines from morning till night. This is a great fixed rate system to people who love playing the range of arcade games Astro City have to offer. These include Super Mario Bros, Space Invaders, Donkey Kong, Street Fighter 2, and many more, and its the only place in Europe that has DanceDanceRevolution 2013. To sweeten the deal, consoles are also set up to be played on throughout the night. For those who consider themselves hard-core gamers they need to have a night of playing fun arcade games at Astro City before being considered for the title. It’s also an example of what was mentioned before about the arcades really encouraging a community to come together. It is arguably more sociable than a nightclub because you can actually hear your friends talking to you without music blaring in your ears.
