We love Donkey Kong here at the arcade!

We love Donkey Kong here at the arcade!

We celebrate Donkey Kong everyday here at the arcade as not only is it a classic 80s arcade game, but it is also the very game that started Royce’s Arcade Warehouse! Appropriately around the time of Donkey Kong’s anniversary four years ago is when we opened our doors to the public. Not only are our anniversary dates close, but the very Donkey Kong in the center of the arcade is the first ever arcade game we owned! It started its journey in Royce’s garage as an old game in need of repair. After getting it back into running order, Royce began building out his collection over the course of a year, and eventually opened the doors of Royce’s Arcade for the very first time in the first week of July 2014.

We could not be anymore proud of this classic game and have even had the entrance of the arcade themed out to represent the Donkey Kong and Mario Bros universe. Come out this weekend to show your love for Donkey Kong for its 37th birthday! It even still has the original working joystick still on to this day!

Our very own giant size Donkey Kong is often the first thing families and friends see when they walk through our doors. 

Here you can see where we have incorporated the gameplay of Donkey Kong, by placing ladders and Mario and Princess Peach at the top of the construction beam.

This classic game very rarely leaves our arcade as it is a permanent staple to the arcade and to our history!

Happy 37th Birthday to Donkey Kong!

Happy 37th Birthday to Donkey Kong!

From all of us here at the arcade we just wanted to share our appreciation for another great game’s anniversary! From this one game a whole gaming universe was born. On July 09, 1981 a huge contribution to the arcade golden age was released. This was the first time we saw the iconic characters of Donkey Kong and Mario, then known as Jumpman! For all our Mario Bros. fans out there we encourage you to come show your support for the game that started it all, this weekend at the arcade!

Whats on Display in the Jurassic Park Section?

If you’ve ever been to our arcade you may have noticed we have a hand full of games behind some electrified fences. Here’s a quick glimpse behind the fences!

Our vintage games on display here date all the way back to the 1950s!

You can also see our vintage consoles on display here as well including  an original Atari, Intellivision, a Genesis, Robby the Robot, and so many more!

All of these rare vintage games are still in working order. Our World Cup Soccer fully works and is 1 out of 900 in existence!

Our four year anniversary approaches!

Our four year anniversary approaches!

As it is our four year anniversary coming up in just a few weeks, (we initially opened the weekend of July 01, 2014), we wanted to share our gratitude with everyone for supporting our business and helping be apart of watching it blossom.

Here’s a picture taken right at the beginning of our journey, almost four years today!

Now here’s a glimpse of what the arcade looks like today!

Not only has the whole front counter been changed from a folding table to an actual counter, the whole warehouse has transformed into a retro party venue with over 100 games!

 

Thank you to all our supporters who have been there every step of the way of our journey!
