(Minor update, this needed to be moved to Saturday, January 23rd. No one has signed up yet, so please be aware of the date before signing up. Disregard any emails saying any date other than January 23rd.)

Our yearly visit to The Houston Arcade Expo was canceled in 2020 due to COVID19. However, we have been given permission to visit and photograph the pinball, arcade games, and wall murals at The Game Preserve near NASA. This location also has massive wall murals of your favorite 80’s games, so bring the family to pose for photos (and play games).

They will also open some of the pinball games for those who want to macro-photo inside the games. So bring your wide angle for the murals and macro gear for the games!

There are 20 pinball games and about 100 classic arcade games. They are giving us a discount for an all-day free game entry pass. The tickets are usually $15, but they are offering our group a discount of only $10 per person.

You can read more about The Game Preserve on their website:

The NASA location was recently opened in 2019 and is still growing. With over 11,000 sq feet, this arcade is a true retro destination and plenty of room for people to wander around. Their max capacity is 300 people, so maintaining a social distance will be really easy.

The location does require masks for all guests.

**PLEASE NOTE**
Please arrive at 10:45am so we can go in and pay as a group. This is how we get the discount. If you arrive after we are already inside, the people that work there WILL NOT COME TO FIND ME to pay for your ticket. You will need to pay again, at the full rate of $15 per person.

** If you arrive late and we have already gone inside, you will need to pay $15 per person at the door. **
