Congratulations to Zach Bryngelson of Nixa, MO for being the recipient of the 1984 Golden Ticket!  When Zach arrived at 1984 on Saturday July 25, 2015 he had no idea that he would be the 1,984th customer since we began our 10 year celebration on July 8th!

$5 SALE IN JULY!

In 2005 when we opened we had 20 video games and 2 pinball machines.  It is now 2015, ten years later, and now we have 4 TIMES the amount of space (2 floors), 4 TIMES the number of games (almost 80), and 9 TIMES the number of pinball (18-20).  We also have 2 dedicated Party Rooms which means that no part of the arcade is off limits when hosting parties.  All of this growth has come with costs. After 10 years of our entry admission being $5, operational expenses have caught up with us.  Our entry admission is now $7.50.  The good news is that for the month of July we are having a FIVE DOLLAR SALE!  We are reducing our door admission down to $5 per person until the end of July.  Starting August 1st, it will go to our regular rate of $7.50. We also have our FREE PLAY cards on sale for $5.  These entry passes will be good forever, just like the stamps you buy at the post office.  These will be on sale for $5 until we run out of them.  Stock up now. As always we take cash and all credit/debit... read more

10 YEARS LATER!

Can you believe it?  It was 10 years ago in July of 2005 that we opened the doors to 1984! When we opened we were one third the size we are now.  We had about 20 games and 2 pinball games!  Here we are 10 years later and we have nearly 80 video games around 18 pinball games!  We are also now so big we can fit 250+ people in our place at any given time!  No more turning away folks on the weekends because we are full in the first 30 minutes of opening!  Come on down on the weekends now, get in the door and there are plenty of games to play!  We also now have TWO dedicated party rooms downstairs, so any time we have a party going on during business hours, it doesn’t affect access to any of the games. During our 4 day celebration from July 8th to July 11th, we will have a lot of fun activities and giveaways going on.  Of all the things that have changed over the years our HOURS have been the same since DAY ONE.  You’ll find us at 1984 from 4PM to 11PM, Wed. to Sat. During our celebration we will have: FREE 10 YEAR BUTTONS! HIGH SCORE HALL OF FAME RESET (all old scores wiped) HIGH SCORE OF THE DAY CONTEST on select machines with signs 80’S TRIVIA CONTEST $1 HOT DOGS and more!  Stay tuned! Make sure and pop over to our Facebook event and let us know you are coming:  https://www.facebook.com/events/109009012772772/ PLEASE NOTE THE WEEK BEFORE during the 4th of July holiday we will be... read more
