Video games were originally invented by the military as a way to teach men and women in uniform which color of ghost is safe to eat and how to effectively leap over barrels. Conquer the pixilated arena with today's Groupon to GameTime in Ybor City. Choose between two family game-pack options, each of which includes four one-hour game passes, a 16-inch one-topping pizza, four sodas, and four single-scoop ice creams (a $112.99 value):

  • For $20, you get one family game-pack redeemable Monday–Friday.
  • For $30, you get one family game-pack redeemable Saturday and Sunday.

Blending the old-school bells and whistles of a classic arcade with the creature comforts of a modern funplex, GameTime lays out a multigenerational array of fun-seeking festivities. From within the strobing alcoves of GameTime's Centro Ybor home base, families can work out competitive impulses with four one-hour unlimited game passes. Settle sibling rivalries with a puck-punishing round of air hockey, or trip the light fantastic with a session of Dance Dance Revolution: Tango Edition. When not busy burying the undead or helping Donkey Kong fill out his tax returns, video villagers can chow down on a family feast served up by the arcade's in-house Arena Sports Bar & Grill. Wash down slices of a 16-inch one-topping pizza with splashes of cold soda before downing victory swirls of soft-serve frozen sweetness, which sates appetites before feeding more coin slots.

Reviews

Frommer's recommends GameTime (formerly Gameworks), and more than 10 Yelpers give it an average rating of three stars. Reviews are mixed on service, but most Yelpers love the food.

  • The young and the young-at-heart will find a good combination of vintage arcade games, high-tech videos, virtual-reality arenas, pool tables, food, and cocktails in this playground occupying more than 33,000 square feet. – Frommer's
  • People don't game like that anymore. It's all done on the Internet. So kudos to Gameworks for keeping this form of video gaming alive. – Adam S., Yelp, 5/10/10

GameTime

The sounds of air hockey pucks whishing toward their targets intermingle with myriad beeps, bells, and general revelry inside Game Time's colorful space, where participants stand captivated by the dizzying selection of games at their disposal. After high-stakes rounds of skee-ball or Cyclone, ravenous players can sidle up to the restaurant, where classic American staples such as baby back ribs and club sandwiches sate victory-fueled hunger.
