Schools Out - Church Youth Game Day
Thursday was the last day of school for everyone in my church youth group. We decided to bring everyone out for a game day blow out after they got out of school. They enjoyed the gameroom, had some BBQ, played some basketball, went swimming in the 40 acre lake where I live, and even did some karaoke with the MP3/Video jukebox. It was a great time to be had.
For Sale: Bump N Jump
Sometimes an arcade game has just gotta go.
Go Speed Racer
I picked up this kiddie ride last summer at an arcade auction. Unfortunately it has sat outside ever since. That thing is a monster to move, and of course it moved with me to the new house.
Apparently the previous owners of my house never heard of an outdoor outlet. Running an extension cord to the kiddie ride and taking off the outside tarp just so the kids can get a 15 minute
thrill got kind of old. Good news is that I was able to finally get my kiddie ride inside the house for all to enjoy. I did have to take the basement door off its hinges to bring it inside though.
First Family Gathering In The Arcade
This last weekend was the first family gathering at my house. The arcade and gameroom was a rousing success. As you can see below from the pictures everyone enjoyed themselves. Even my new candy machine got a good workout.
Garage Sale Find - I Want Candy
For those who know their 80's music, the song "I Want Candy" was sung by a band called Bow Wow Wow. For those who don't know their 80's trivia I present you
with a nifty garage sale find. This is a Dual Candy Machine on a heavy duty stand. I've always wanted something like this for the gameroom.
This is my first gameroom garage sale find, and the best part is I got it pretty cheap.
Snack Bar Area Finished
Finally the snack bar area is finished. I'm glad I went with all oak instead of pine or something else as there is nothing like a beautiful oak finish. Decorative oak square moulding was
installed in a pattern along the walls of the bar. I put a touchscreen Megatough Maxx Sapphire II (video game) on the left end of the bar, and an
LCD screen for a video jukebox on the right end. The bar moulding (the lip of the bar top) is very curvy and smooth and is custom made. Your arms and elbows rest comfortably
in the channels. The footrests are the perfect height and are equally as comfortable.
