What should I consider when choosing space for my arcade games?

Always allocate 65 square feet per game with open design and sightlines.

Do you have any guidelines on how to calculate arcade game earnings for planning purposes?

Location with 40 games:
Square feet (2600 / 65 per game = 40 games)
Purchase of 40 Games @ average of $11,000.00 per game = $440,000.00
Average earnings of 40 games @ $200.00 per game / per wk. x 52 wks. = $416,000.00 yr.
Average room payout of 28% = $101,920.00
Total earnings = $416,000.00 – Payout – $101,920.00 = $314,080.00 yr.

Location with 20 games:
Square feet (1300 / 65 per game = 20 games)
Purchase of 20 Games @ average of $11,000.00 per game = $220,000.00
Average earnings of 20 games @ $200.00 per game / per wk. x 52 wks. = $208,000.00 yr.
Average room payout of 28% = $50,960.00
Total earnings = $208,000.00 – Payout – $50,960.00 = $157,040.00

How much does it cost to open an arcade?

The cost of opening an arcade can vary widely depending on several factors, such as the location, size of the arcade, types of games, and additional amenities offered. Generally, the cost can be broken down into several key expenses: a) Space Rental/Lease: The cost of renting or leasing a suitable space for the arcade can be a significant portion of the budget. The price will depend on the location and size of the property. b) Arcade Machines: The cost of arcade machines can vary based on the type and quality of the games you choose. Newer and more popular games may be more expensive, while refurbished or older machines can be more budget friendly. c) Renovation and Interior Design: Setting up the arcade with an attractive and engaging interior may require renovation and design expenses. d) Licensing and Permits: Acquiring the necessary licenses and permits to operate an arcade legally may have associated fees. e) Staffing: Hiring employees to manage the arcade and assist customers will add to the costs. f) Utilities and Maintenance: Ongoing expenses such as electricity, water, and regular maintenance of the machines should also be considered. As a rough estimate, opening a small to medium-sized arcade could range from $50,000 to $300,000 or more. Large, high-end arcades with various games and amenities could exceed $500,000.
