Arcadia Retro Arcade and Pinball Emporia, 206 Barbadoes St, Christchurch


All Ages Licensed

Ticket Information:

  • Free Admission

Some times it will seem easier to go on a quest for ghost slaying on Ghouls and Ghosts or to blast some enemy ships on Raiden than to go on a quest for love. But spring is moving into summer and for many its time to step up the antics on Tinder - Grindr or Findsomeone.

But what to do on this date, with a stranger who just might be the one! Go the movies and awkwardly sit there, go for coffee and awkwardly sit there or come to Arcadia and smash your date on Street Fighter or Tekken 3, beat your date in a rally race, smash them on Pacman, beat them on Pinball... yeah its date night at Arcadia. Play the games, connect four, game of life, talk, laugh, and answer the dating prompt questions that we put on each of the games!

You can buy a milkshake, and put two straws in it, and look dreamily into each others eyes as you drink from the same cup.

You can play connect four, and chat, see if your date has anything interesting to say that makes you think aaaawwwwww.

You can use the prompt questions that we post on each game to instigate an interesting conversation.

You can grab a machine gun 300 rounds for $10 and shoot some targets in the lane.

You can grab the microphone and sign a romantic love song.

You can fall in love, make each other blush and beat them at another game.

Thursday night is date night, so when you find some one interesting online, bring them to Arcadia. How romantic.

If your date does not turn out so well, join the Arcadia dating list and we will match you with a contender.

Fall in love at the Arcade.
