A new Hull gaming attraction has opened its doors to the public in time for half term.
The Arcade Hub has taken over a 1,600sq ft unit on the ground floor of Princes Quay Shopping Centre.
Owner Lee Playle said gaming fans have been pouring through the doors since it opened at the weekend: “We have been really busy, it’s been a great response.
Lee set up his business over two years ago and imports many of his games from the US.
The games arcade has re-located from its previous home in Trinity Market, but since moving has expanded the number of machines and now operates around 70 arcade games in the new unit, with something for all ages.
Speaking last month about the expansion of his business, he said: “We get a lot of kids in, and they used to ask if we had Fortnite, but now they’re asking for Pac-man and other retro games.
“We’ve got a really wide appeal, from kids to teens and older. For those who know me or have met me, they will know that this place is my passion and that I’ve been putting everything I have into this.”
The attraction is part of widespread plans to transform Princes Quay by new owner Aaron Mellor.
His plans include turning the whole of the centre’s Harbour Deck into an artisan food hall, attracting new experimental digital-based retailers and opening a roof top ‘container park’ featuring street food stalls.
