After much debate, the Ground Kontrol brain trust has agreed that our futuristic TRON look, as cool as it is, is just not old-school arcade enough. Therefore, we are tentatively planning on closing from May 1 until August 1 to “de-model”.
After ripping out the laser sinks and glowing tables, we’ll have room for some “new” stuff we’ve been saving since the ’80s. Among the highlights:
- Animatronic lounge band, rescued from the dumpsters behind some other arcade chain;
- Bright fluorescent lighting; and
- The original GK carpet (Yes, we save everything.)
When we’re done, we guarantee that there will be no escaping the authentic sights, sounds and smells of those ’80s kiddie parlors you know and love.
