Have you ever wanted to be part of a world record? If you live near Brookfield, IL you can and you get to have fun while doing it.
Galloping Ghost Arcade in Brookfield, IL has a major event taking place this Saturday, May 30th. Walter Day, originator of Twin Galaxies will be there in person as the “credible witness” for Guinness World Records as they gather documentation for the submission of two claims for “WORLD RECORDS.”
Galloping Ghost Arcade is applying for recognition as the “WORLD’S LARGEST ARCADE” and also as the site of “THE MOST PEOPLE PLAYING VIDEO GAMES AT THE SAME TIME IN THE SAME PLACE.”
At 9:00 AM the games count as part of the submission for the “LARGEST ARCADE” will begin. And, at 4 PM everyone is invited to attend and be a part of the record attempt for “MOST PEOPLE PLAYING.”
You and your family can be among the supporters who are playing video games at Galloping Ghost Arcade when the “people count” is taken. You should try and be there prior to 3:30PM so you can be assigned a machine and be part of the count at 4PM.
Then, at 8PM, there will be a “TRADING CARD AWARDS CEREMONY” that will see many Chicago area gamers and game designers honored on their own newly-created trading cards.
I wish I were close enough to join in on the fun.
The Galloping Ghost Arcade is at 9415 Ogden Ave, Brookfield, IL 60513. (708) 485-4700.
