Pennsylvania (ITG2 in Phoenixville! DDR in Exton/Philly!)

Postby shadowobsessed on Wed Nov 30, 2016 11:25 pm

Edit 4/04/2018:
Here is a current (to my knowledge) machine list of arcades in this area!

Phoenixville, PA
Gamers Heaven
285 Schuylkill Rd, Phoenixville, PA 19460
(610) 933-2561
* ITG 2 (no USB ports, but plenty of packs, and open to adding more packs on hard drive. 75 cents per round)
* They also have: House of the Dead, Tekken Tag Tournament. Plus consoles and PC's for LAN play and I believe virtual reality gear. And a snack bar and items like Gundam kits for sale. Cool place!

Philadelphia, PA
Dave & Buster's
325 N Christopher Columbus Blvd, Philadelphia, PA 19106
(215) 413-1951
* DDR Ace + a nice community who comes out to play it often
* Other D&B games (there is another Philly D&B location on Franklin Mills Circle, but I have not been. There is also one in Plymouth Meeting, PA but it does *not* have DDR!!! Only PIU.)

Exton, PA
Round 1 Bowling & Amusement
172 Exton Square Mall, Exton, PA 19341
(484) 252-2819
* Crossbeats Sunrise x2
* Dance Dance Revolution Ace x1
* Final Fantasy Theatrhythm x2
* Gitadora Tri-Boost DrumMania x1
* Gitadora Tri-Boost GuitarFreaks x1
* Groove Coaster x2
* Guitar Hero x1 (but speakers don't work, last I checked)
* IIDX Sinobuz x2
* Museca x2
* Music GunGun! x1 (Near outside front mall entrance)
* PIU Infinity x1
* PIU Prime 2 x1
* Pop'n Music Tune Street x1
* Project Diva Future Tone x1
* Rhythm Tengoku x1 (Near outside front mall entrance)
* Sound Voltex IV Heavenly Haven x2


Also there is the neighboring 8 on the Break in Dunellen, NJ with a lot of the best rhythm games if you don't mind crossing state lines.

Eight on the Break
340-346 North Ave, Dunellen, NJ 08812
(732) 752-8880


My original post:
-------------------------------------------
Hey guys! I'm a recent (read: a month or two) Pennsylvania transplant from California, and I live outside West Philly. I currently work as the Amusement Manager for the new Round 1 that's opening up in Exton, PA. If anyone would like to stage meetups there, ask me questions about R1 (such as tipping me off to a broken machine), or talk about meetups elsewhere in PA, you can use this thread! Since this is only the second R1 opening on the East Coast so far, I'm hoping some r21freaks can stop by so I can finally meet you guys. Our tentative grand opening date is Dec. 10.

Here's the address:

Exton Square Mall
172 Exton Square Pkwy
Exton, PA 19341

Current music games list: (We will be getting DDR A and hopefully Groove Coaster sometime in December)
Crossbeats Sunrise x2
Dance Dance Revolution Ace x1
Final Fantasy Theatrhythm x4
Gitadora Tri-Boost DrumMania x1
Gitadora Tri-Boost GuitarFreaks x1
Groove Coaster x2
Guitar Hero x1
IIDX Copula (Says so on marquee, but will be upgraded to Sinobuz) x2
Museca x2
Music GunGun! x1 (Near outside front mall entrance)
PIU Infinity x1
PIU Prime x1
Pop'n Music Tune Street x1
Project Diva Future Tone x1
Rhythm Tengoku x1 (Near outside front mall entrance)
Sound Voltex III x2

Aside from Pop'n, we will offer online support for all those compatible. This means we sell e-Amusement, NESiCA and BANAPASSPORT cards at the card counter to use with the music games (and some fighting games) to unlock things like new songs or to level up and save progress in each game. Unfortunately, Pop'n isn't supported by Konami in America any more, but I don't know the reason why.

Also, this list isn't counting the ~300 other games, including racing, fighting, shooting, simulation, puzzle, horror and adventure games, super kawaii Japanese photobooths, bowling, billiards, ping-pong, karaoke (in English, Chinese, Spanish or Japanese), darts, food, and bar serving beer, wine and sake.

I'm pretty excited for our opening!

Well, I'm currently working with someone in Amusement from the R1 in Taunton who's helping to open up my store. He'll be leaving in a couple weeks to go back to his store. Is there anything you'd like me to ask him?

I'll pass it along. Hope that gets fixed soon!

I was told just yesterday that we're getting a shipment of 25 new games today, but it's my day off so I won't see them until tomorrow. Fingers crossed for DDR and Groove Coaster!

Word on the street is you're getting the DDR A cab that disappeared from R1SJ (we had two for a long time), so those fingers shouldn't double-cross you haha

This sounds like something someone who wants to submit a shitty anime remix and not get found out immediately would say

I had no idea! If true, well, I'll try to take good care of it.

Bloomingdale is pretty far from me so it is pretty easy for me to overlook this. Besides Brunswick Zone idk too many arcade places by name.
