There must be something in the Atlantic City air that fosters the idea of arcades and amusement games.
The seaside resort is already home to Lucky Snake Arcade — billed as the largest on the East Coast — and it will soon play host to a new Dave & Buster’s.
Now, Atlantic City casinos are getting in on the action. Well, one is anyway. And that’s Harrah’s Atlantic City with The ARCADE.
Arcade for ‘all ages’ is ‘perfect addition’ to Harrah’s AC casino
The ARCADE will open on Nov. 1 at Harrah’s Atlantic City, according to a press release. The brand-new entertainment experience is open seven days a week to guests of all ages. The 5,238-square-foot arcade is situated near The Pool at Harrah’s.
Gregg Klein, senior vice president and general manager of Harrah’s Resort AC, said the casino is “thrilled to open this vibrant, exciting entertainment space offering fun for all ages.”
In the press release announcing the venue’s debut, Klein said:
“We aim to create fun experiences and unforgettable memories for all our guests, so The ARCADE is truly the perfect addition to the resort.”
Caesars Entertainment has spent upwards of $420 million at its trio of AC casinos since 2020, according to the company. At Harrah’s, the company has renovated hotel rooms and suites, revamped the casino floor with updated slots and added several celebrity chef dining concepts.
The ARCADE at Harrah’s Resort AC is not a novel idea for Caesars. Horseshoe Las Vegas features a popular 7,000-square-foot arcade and bar.
Lowdown on The ARCADE
The Atlantic City venue will have more than 60 games, including Jersey Shore staples like Skee-ball, air hockey and an “epic claw machine” called Big One Extreme.
Games are played with The ARCADE’s reloadable cards. Instead of tickets, points are accumulated on the cards to redeem prizes.
Although hours may change, initial plans are for The ARCADE to be open at 10 a.m. every day. Sunday through Thursday, the venue will close at 10 p.m. It will stay open until 2 a.m. on Friday and Saturday.
