A chain of retro arcades is taking its pinball games to Fort Worth instead of Jefferson Boulevard.
Free Play Arcade last year announced plans to open a pinball arcade near Top Ten Records. But now they’ve canceled those plans, the Dallas Observer reports.
The company will open a fourth Free Play Arcade in the Near Southside district of Fort Worth. It will have about 100 arcade games and at least 15 pinball machines.
Owner Corey Hayden told the Observer:
We were really excited about getting into that area. The landlord had a conflict he couldn’t figure out. One of the owners also owned a small share of a brewery, and under Texas Alcohol and Beverage Commission rules, that’s prohibited. You can’t own a producer and also own a space to rent out to bars.
