Reminiscing about retro games? In the mood to go to a bar? 

Stretch out those button-mashing fingers and get ready for the ultimate arcade experience at GameTime. This indoor entertainment center is for everyone of all ages and offers several full-service attractions like an arcade station equipped with simulators and prize machines as well as a stocked bar with seasonal favorites. 

GameTime can be found in several different areas across Florida including Fort Myers, Ocoee, Miami, and Tampa with something to celebrate at each location.

If you visit the GameTime in Tampa, you’re in for a treat. Not just because of its five-lane Skee-Ball escapade or constantly-expanding sports bar menu, but also because it's one of two locations offering mini bowling! This four-lane activity was created after GameTime founders invested around $1 million into revamping the entertainment complex, which now allows patrons to knock down a few pins without having to visit a bowling alley or sacrifice a trip to the arcade.

The neon LED lighting hanging above the lanes gives you the same experience as glow-in-the-dark bowling. The newly-updated center also offers a gorgeous restaurant venue, a new audio-visual experience, and over 60 TVs to watch any and all sporting events.

If you’re a bowling enthusiast, make sure to visit the Tampa location to try out mini-bowling.

Ocoee is the other GameTime location featuring mini-bowling, and it's much larger! They have eight-lanes equipped with scoreboard screens and vibrant LED lighting so that larger groups won’t miss out on the experience. Of course, when you're done bowling, there’s a mega arcade to explore!

Each GameTime entertainment center has over 120 games to play including classics like air hockey and pinball. You can also try your hand at their Connect 4 kiosk or Key Master prize catcher.

If you’re not sure which game to start with, challenge one of your friends to a round of Space Invaders. This adventure is a space conquest where players use a plasma cannon to defeat invaders trying to take over Earth. If you do well, this game is one that can win you big tickets. As long as you and your friends like arcade games, there’s a genre for everyone!

There's more to enjoy at GameTime than arcade games and watching sports: amazing food! With recent renovations, the GameTime restaurants are modern and have extended their menus to include savory favorites their French Dip sandwich with au jus; the Philly Cheesesteak is also a must! 

GameTime also serves brunch for early birds itching to play games, and their selections are indulgent. From chicken and waffles to a fresh turkey wrap, you’ll never have to stray too far from the games when you get low on fuel.

You’ll need something to wash down all that food or maybe you want a cocktail while watching the game. Either way, GameTime’s stocked bars have you covered with both classic go-to's and new drinks their lengthy cocktail menu. Now, they’re featuring their new Summer Temptation drinks like their Watermelon Chiller and Shaded Lychee Martini.

GameTime mixologists are also stepping up their Bloody Mary game Surf and Turf style by adding ingredients like Tito’s Vodka, Cholula hot sauce, and a special garnish. Whether you want to try one of GameTime’s traditional concoctions or something more seasonal, you won’t be disappointed!

GameTime is enhancing the way you do arcades. Whether you go for the games, sports, or drinks, this entertainment center is a must for every person of every age, making it a great place to go with both family and friends. If there's a special event coming up like a birthday, you can book a party at GameTime that will blow other bashes out of the water!
