New Year’s Eve FREE PLAY Party

December 31, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 am


We’re saying bye bye to 2021 at Ground Kontrol the only way we know how: by flipping the “free play” switch on all of our 100+ games and inviting YOU to party like it’s a socially distanced, masked version of 1985!

Leave 2021 at the door at our New Year’s Eve FREE PLAY Party with an arcade full of classic games and the best selection of pinball in the Pacific Northwest. Enjoy 20 taps of craft beer and cider and a full bar and food menu with specials all night long. Take a break for some nachos in our retro-futuristic lounge, or just grab another pint and head for your favorite game – we’ve got drink holders everywhere, so you don’t have to balance a beer while you climb the high score board!

DJ New Year’s Reiff and Nate C. will keep things kicking with an eclectic soundtrack selected for maximum party potential. As we get close to midnight, we’ll toast to 2022 with the traditional countdown!

All of this is just $20 at the door (or just $10 before 7pm!), making it one of the best NYE deals in town. Capacity is limited, so get here early! If you’d rather skip the line (and get some nice bonuses while you’re at it), VIP wristband packages will be available in our online store here starting on Tuesday 12/28. *VIP wristbands sold out!*

New Year’s Eve Free Play Party · Friday 12/31 · Noon-1am · $10 before 7pm, $20 after 7pm · 21+
