The classic arcade will be returning to Play Blackpool.

Retro Games Party (RGP) those purveyors of the very finest of arcade machines will be supplying cabinets again for this years show. The arcade is always one of the most popular features at our events so we’re pleased to be able to confirm we will have 80 machines this year, all set to free play.

Expect to see all your favourites – Space Harrier, Pacman, Star Wars, Galaxian or perhaps Outrun and give smashing your personal best one more go. If beating a PB isn’t your thing, come and watch Jon Stoodley try and get the perfact game on Pacman instead. Jon was so close at last years expo – is Play Blackpool finally going to be the show where he acheives his dream?

We will confirm which machines will be making an appearance closer to the event. Feel free to send post any suggestions to us of what you would like to see and we’ll pass them onto the RGP team. We can’t promise they will be able to bring every cab requested but we’ll do our best to make sure we have all the favourites!

So come and wallow in some lovely arcade nostalgia at #PlayBlackpool 2015 because, after all, Blackpool is the Daddy of seaside arcades!

Play Blackpool takes place on 2-4 May 2015 in the Norbreck Castle Exhibition Centre in Blackpool. Tickets can be purchased through the website
