Games arcade opened at Lincoln Bowl after deal with Pac Man creators

A new immersive arcade has been installed at Lincoln Bowl, near Washingborough, as part of a £200,000 investment.

The bowling alley has signed a deal with gaming company Namco, creators of Pac Man, after a significant investment into the business and the arcade is the first to open in Lincoln since the 1990s.

Last year, Lincoln Bowl invested £200,000 on refurbishing its lanes and this year it will be investing a further £200,000 on the 17 interactive and immersive arcade machines.

The new arcade machines, now open to the public, include adventures such as a Jurassic Park two-player shooter, 4D zombi games and Mario Kart among others.

Simon Craddock, owner of Lincoln Bowl, said: “There is nothing else like this in Lincoln.

“It is the first arcade to open in Lincoln since the 1990s and we intend to increase the size and number of games in the next three months as well as add three pool tables.

“Namco have agreed to update a number of machines every six months and all machines are well maintained and very new.”
