Meltdown: Escape Room Meets Arcade Gaming

Arc-Studios develops some of the latest attractions for Family Entertainment Centers (FEC’s), and their latest escape reality attraction, Meltdown (Escape Room Arcade Game), is an instant hit, blending an escape room with an arcade game effect. I think back to the days and many quarters ago playing Namco’s Pac-Man at the local arcade center in town. It was the craze of the 1980’s and still is to this day. Recently, ranked Pac-Man as the top classic arcade game of its era and for good reason. Over the years, arcade game technology has evolved to more immersive experiences for gamers. Gamers seek the latest gaming technology that dives further into more immersive experiences.

Are you looking for a new attraction to excite customers, drive more sales, and feature a centerpiece for your arcade center? Then check out Meltdown, the latest escape reality experience from the innovators at Arc-Studios. Meltdown is a first-of-a-kind escape room meets arcade game.


Escape Reality Presents “Meltdown”


Meltdown is based on the hit 2016 movie “Passengers“. Players are given 4 different colors to chose from (red, blue, green, yellow). Each player is assigned a station where they are tasked with completing a space mission to guide the future of mankind to a new world. Their challenge is to save the ship by obtaining the code to vent the reactor core and prevent the ship from exploding. The stations represent a task or challenge for each player, offering a unique teamplay multi-player gaming experience where roles can be switched. This new attraction increases customer repeat play and generates additional arcade sales for FEC’s. Meltdown is ideal for many entertainment centers including bowling centers, family entertainment centers, movie theater lobbies, and arcade centers.
