Ouin, Terry Wiliams déménage parce ce que le loyer risque de doubler sur Ste. Catherine, grosse boite américain a acheter le bloc au complet ou est Amusement 2000 plus présentement et va toute refaire la façade et une tour de bureau en hauteur des commerces.

La fin des arcades sur St. Catherine, pour de vrai, une chance que les américains non pas acheter l’église sur St. Catherine et Bishop. :shock:

Cool c'est tout proche !! Ce n'est pas un Barcade malheureusement, ce ne seras pas facile a mon avis, l'offre arcade seulement et en banlieu, ca risque d'etre difficile. Plus de clientèle de ''trottoir'', ceux qui arrêtent par curiosités et les touriste de magasinage qui n'avaient jamais prévue dépenser qques dollars a cet endroit, c'était surement un gros morceaux de son chiffre d'affaire sur St-Cath.

Ca va lui prendre une nouvelle clientèle ''dédié'' arcade qui se déplacent spécialement pour ca et est-ce que ce seras suffisant ?? Messemble que d'avoir augmenter l'offre avec bar, écran tv sportif, fast-food et arcade, ca aurais bien plus de chance de fonctionner.

Triste!
I admit that I don't stop in and drop $$$ at AM2000 very often these days, but it's nice having it there when I'm in the area. I'll definitely make a point of stopping by soon and playing a few games

Je pense aussi que son emplacement sur St.Catherine Ouest était idéale, mais avec le nouveau loyer demande, il me dit qu'il ne pourra pas joindre les deux bouts.

Les jetons, ou je devrais dire la grandeur des jetons que Amusement 2000 Plus ultilise et da peu pres la même grandeur que les 25 sous américain, et les accepteurs Imonex qu'ils utilise sont en faite pour les 25 sous américain, (no. de pièce 120-900-01 US Quarter Snap in mech) avec une petite modification qui accepte les jetons grandeur .900 aussi. Pas bête, les touriste sont souvent nombreux au centre ville.

Les arcades comme on les a connu ne sont plus rentable a moins qu'il y a une troller d’être humains différent a chaque jours qui passe devant l'emplacement en plus des réguliers. Les arcades typiques qui ont survie au Etats Unis ce sont souvent transformer en ce qu'on appel dans l'industrie des FEC (family entertainment centers), et ca devrait prendre racine au Québec dans les années 20 aussi avec les changements au niveau des permis de et les catégories des vignettes d'appareils d'amusements et les jeux d’adresse.

Noooon! Amusement 2000 sur st-cath va fermer??? :(. C’était la place a pinball la plus proche de chez moi ... Il reste North Star mais cest un peu loin, et Laval oh well, c vrm pas a la porte.

Jme demande si ouvrir une arcade dans Verdun comme dans le passé ca serait rentable de nouveau, c rendu un peu plus cher maintenant ce coin.

Yes, it's not downtown anymore, but I believe it's in a good location for the long run. It's fairly close to Centropolis, which has a nice nightlife for all ages. The area north is also expanding rapidly, with condos going up, and much of the land being owned by SmartCentres I believe.

And it can't be a coincidence that it opened right next to...

Allow me to disagree on the location. This is a pedestrian dead-zone. They can only attract people with a car that already intended to go there. It is also too far from Centropolis for these people to stumble upon it by accident.

They should have opened within the Centropolis. There are multiple spots available but I guess the rent was too expensive and the arcade in the Colossus was too close. The arcade in the Putting Edge is so poorly maintained, I doubt it would have been a competitor.

I went there Thursday evening. The parking was overflowing because the cafe next door was full with a young crowd.
The arcade was not busy, but there were still more patrons than I expected.
Most pinballs are 75c a play or $2 for 3 plays. The other pinballs did not have a price card so I could not tell.
You must buy tokens, minimum $2. It is always 25c per token no matter how many you buy.
You can get extra balls and free games with high score. I even got a free game with a match.

I'm not in the area often myself but I did go to the flea market once across the street behind sami fruits. There was a small food court place that was overrun by teens eating lunch and hanging out. All of them walked there, presumably from the school to the south. Like I said there's not much there now, but the area is growing quickly.
