GameRoom Essentials

For those that don't know what GameRoom Essentials is, it's pretty much a retro arcade centre.

The guy behind it started it some 18 months ago at an old factory in Cavan, and has become a very popular place for...well just about everyone. Adults love it because they can relive the games they grew up on (be it arcade games, or the various consoles). Kids love it because it's a unique experience for them.

Also, for $25 for adults and $15 for kids for a Saturday night 'lock-in' (legally they're not lock-in's in the old school sense as you're free to come and go as you please, and parent cannot leave their kids there unsupervised), it's one of the cheapest nights out these days.

Anyway, last week, the Port Adelaide-Enfield council shut the venue down, citing safety reasons, so now they're looking for a new home. Both the City of Prospect and City of Playford are helping locate a suitable premises, but the logistics of moving everything and the cost of setting everything up at a new place is understandably high.

They've just set up a crowdsourcing page for anyone to donate to help financially, with some pretty good perks for donating.

So if you want to help out financially, visit https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/relocation-of-gameroom-essentials.

They're also accepting non-financial offers of help.

Some fantastic news, with GameRoom Essentials moving into their new site - the old Blockbuster Video at Craigmore Village - this week.

At this stage it's only a temporary location until a larger location that meets regulations can be found, but at last we can all relive our childhoods once again.

Good to see them back up and running if only temporarily
