A bowling alley and laser tag will be some of the new additions to the popular gaming arcade Back To The Arcade when it reopens at a new location in October.
Owner Greg Appleton has submitted an application with the Goulburn Mulwaree Council seeking approval to set up the new features to the gaming arcade at the old Jump Inn site.
"We are waiting to hear back on our application from the council at this stage. Once we get the approvals, we plan to open at the new location next month," he said.
"At this stage, we are in a testing phase and making sure that everything works well when we open," Mr Appleton said.
The popular gaming arcade is making the move from Hume Street to where Jump Inn, a popular children's trampolining centre, used to be.
Mr Appleton has a passion for gaming and started the classic old-style video gaming arcade in June 2019.
The 1300 square meters premises includes a bowling alley, video games and cafe. The laser tag is likely to be set up before Christmas.
The new location gives them sufficient space to maintain social distancing measures in the wake of COVID-19.
"The new location is spacious with ample parking space. Initially, we will have space for 12-14 players. The option of extending it to 24 players will follow soon," he added.
The arcade was opened in June last year by local Greg Appleton who has a passion for gaming and saw a hole in the market.
The arcade has several high-end retro machines, the big Daytonas, and two Sega Rallies. Some of the machines are close to 700kg.
It also has a huge collection of shooters, Lethal Weapon and Mario 2s, lots of racing games, a pinball machine, and a fishing game for younger kids.
