THERE IS CURRENTLY NO COST TO HAVE YOUR PARTY or MEETING AT ARCADIA. We are happy to host your party for free. The guests will simply need to pay to play the games, as always. We will even happily schedule a special opening outside our normal hours for any group for almost any reason at no cost.
We have added a nice, large party room to Arcadia with the 2019 expansion. It is 20' by 20' and has tables and seating for up to 28 people. We have a refrigerator / freezer that you are welcome to use for your party / meeting.
If you don't need the party room, you can still just have a party using the seating area in the front of Arcadia. There is some limited seating and a coffee table.
FOOD AND DRINK:
At the moment we do not offer any food or drink for sale at Arcadia. We are planning a restaurant in our future, but it is still years off. If you are interested in partnering with us to help us start a restaurant, please contact us.
For now, however, you are welcome to bring food and drink into the museum as long as you clean up any messes that are made. We do have a candy machine and soda machine on the porch next to Pinball Paradise.
Other restaurants nearby include McDonald's, Subway, Road Ranger and the Dixie Family Restaurant, all within about 3 blocks of Arcadia. In nearby Atlanta, just 5 miles south on I-55, there is the Country Aire Restaurant (great service, huge inexpensive menu, pretty good food). There is also a Dairy Queen, Pizza Hut, and a Casey's in Atlanta that serves sandwiches, pizza, and doughnuts.
HOW TO BOOK:
Just contact us and let us know what date and time(s) you are considering. We will check availability and let you know. Then you tell us your choice of time and we will put you on our calendar. That's about it...couldn't be much easier.
CONTACT US by phone/text to John at 309-287-1725, or by email to email@example.com, or use this website's contact page, or talk to John in person
Be aware that when you reserve the party room, you are reserving only the party room. The rest of the arcade remains open to the public (assuming that your party is taking place during our regular hours). Please do not attempt to block off the entire arcade for your party only. Others often drive from great distances to visit Arcadia and it is not fair to them to arrive and find a sign claiming that the arcade is reserved and they cannot enter.
Also, we are unable to have "free play" parties for a fee, simply because of the difficulty (impossibility in some cases) of changing all of the games over to free play for a party
We do not serve alcohol. Also, because our mission is to be a completely family-friendly place, we discourage visitors from bringing alcohol into Arcadia. Sorry for any inconvenience.
However, if you want to have a private party where you bring in alcohol, we are fine with this, provided that it is scheduled outside of our normal hours.
