Whether it’s Pac-Man, The Sims, Guitar Hero, Grand Theft Auto, Fortnite or many others, Sept. 12 is the perfect day to play: It’s National Video Games Day.

While you could cozy up at home with your personal console or gaming device, there are many venues across Central Florida that offer the chance to partake in video games communally. In honor of the holiday, here are a few local options.

Enjoy more than 200 games, seven rooms and an anime-themed bar. Note: This venue only accepts credit/debit cards, Apple Pay, Samsung Pay or other forms of cashless payment.

Located inside Dezerland Park, Arcade Orlando features 300 skill, rhythm, nostalgia and other video games, as well as classic pinball and toddler riding games. After playing, peruse the attraction’s other offerings — including go-karts, bowling, a trampoline park, bumper cars, ax-throwing, mini-golf and The Auto Museum.
