SEGAbits Presents Arcade Adventure: Arcade meetup at Galloping Ghost Arcade in Brookfield, IL on 9/9/2023

Start working out those thumbs, because we’re announcing SEGAbits Presents Arcade Adventure! Meet up with fellow SEGA fans at Galloping Ghost Arcade in Brookfield, Illinois on September 9th, 2023 to play hundreds of arcade games in the world’s largest arcade!

Let us know you will be attending by clicking “Yes” on this form
(this is not a ticket or official commitment, it is simply a gauge for us to know how many will be attending)

This event requires no advance ticketing or advance access, simply show up to the arcade and pay them $25 for all day play. The arcade is open from 11am to 2pm the following day, and you are free to come and go as you please – just hang on to that receipt. The meetup will take place between 1pm and 9pm and will feature impromptu tournaments, arcade and world record attempts and the chance to meet and hang out with fellow SEGA fans. Oh yeah, and isn’t a certain SEGA console turning 24 years old on that day? Well, join us as we also wish the SEGA Dreamcast a happy birthday!

For those unaware, Galloping Ghost Arcade is HUGE. Want to play The House of the Dead 1 through 4? How about Monkey Ball with that ridiculous banana joystick? Or maybe you’ve always wanted to play SegaSonic the Hedgehog starring Sonic, Ray and Mighty? They have all those, plus nearly every super scaler game, Sonic the Fighters, Virtua Fighter, Fantasy Zone, Ghost Squad, L.A. Machineguns, Gunblade NY, Shinobi, Altered Beast, The Revenge of Death Adder, All-Stars Racing, and many, many, many more! Heck I’m just naming off a handful of the SEGA titles. There are close to 1,000 games!

Hope to see you there!

8/15 UPDATE: It is looking like a great group of Arcade Adventurers are forming, with over 20 confirmed guests! Guests will receive free Ryo and Kazuma stickers (as seen on our promotional art)! We will likely see many more who did not fill out the Google Form linked above. I was told by Galloping Ghost Arcade that the R-360 is being repaired, so it will not be operating on the day. However, there are dozens if not hundreds of SEGA machines up and running including some deluxe super scaler cabinets, light gun classics (House of the Dead 1-4 all lined up), all three SEGA Star Wars arcade games including the ultra rare Star Wars Arcade and games that saw Dreamcast ports from Capcom including Power Stone and Cannon Spike!

    I’m all the way in Pennsylvania. It’s too far for me. I’ve heard great things about Galloping Ghosts though.

    Will this event be streamed somewhere?

    • Barry the Nomad says:

      No, but I plan to take photos and possibly capture some short live videos on YouTube or Twitter (but I don’t think X as it is called now is good for that sort of thing). Might do a recap video too if there’s enough footage.
