Unlike piñatas, video games are known to improve hand-eye coordination and release a miasma of quarters if you crack them open. Test your prowess with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get a $25 game card at Facenda-Whitaker Lanes in East Norriton.
Though Facenda-Whitaker Lanes has trained Pennsylvanian strike-and-spare forces for more than 50 years, its newly opened Game Galaxy turns arcade and tabletop gamers into rec-room champions. Battalions of friends or armies of one may tackle a sprawling array of more than 50 competitive challenges, testing their mettle against air-hockey tables, claw machines, and sweat-inducing rounds of Virtual Butter Churning. A host of classic and soon-to-be-lauded arcade games satiates joystick junkies' need for virtual movement and 8-bit dangers.
The Game Galaxy keeps its doors open as late as midnight to entertain night owls and early-evening sleepwalkers tired of boring strolls around the living room. Between rounds, players can explore additional attractions, such as the recently opened Bamboo Bar, any of the complex's 50 premier bowling lanes, and the weekend laser-light show, a beaming spectacle known to spark uncontrollable outbreaks of boogying.
