Celebrate 36 a-maze-ing years of Pac-Man with Ground Kontrol! The pizza-shaped pioneer changed arcade gaming forever when Namco released the original game to arcades on May 22nd 1980, and we’re throwing a party worthy of His Pie-ness!
We’ll be setting every single game at Ground Kontrol to free play, so not only will you be able to conquer the leaderboards on Pac-Man and Ms. Pac-Man, you’ll get to enjoy dozens of classics spanning decades of arcade history, no quarters necessary. We’ll also be rolling out some rarely-seen Pac-Man spin-offs and running high score challenges and tournaments throughout the night. While our yellow hero has a strict diet of pellets and power-ups, you’ll appreciate our full bar and food menu with specials and happy hour until midnight!
Dress up in your Pac-inspired finest – yellow, pink, orange or blue – and your cover’s just $5 at the door. Don’t feel like dressing up? No problem – you’ll just have to kick in a few bucks more for the birthday fund and spend $10 (still a great deal!) Enter our costume contest for another shot at prizes, and stop by the pop-up photo booth so Ashley Anderson Photography can make you look extra-awesome!
The party starts at 5pm and runs late, so join the Facebook event and stay tuned for specific times and announcements for everything that’s going on. He may be another year older, but Pac-Man’s not slowing down, so come down for a party worthy of arcade royalty!
