The final day has come and gone for Arcade Legends. Fear not though, as Arcade Legacy will opening soon just a few miles down the road and a few minutes closer for most people. Here is the new address:
322 W. Crescentville Rd
Cincinnati, OH 45246
This is less than 2 minutes off of the Rt 4 exit on I-275 and literally 30 seconds from Springdale 18 Cinema DeLux
We’d like to thank all of those who have made the trip out even just once and helped spread the word throughout the city and beyond. We’re still getting new customers every day so there are loads of people out there who haven’t heard about us yet. Let’s carry that momentum on to the new place and make it one of THE places to be in Cincinnati.
There will be more frequent updates as new additions are announced and completed. Please keep sending me your suggestions for games you’d like to see in the arcade.
I plan on being re-open by the first week of July so if you are thinking of planning a party this summer after July 1st, give me a call and we can book it now. If you’d like to take a look at the new place before doing so, that can be arranged.
See you all soon
