For those that grew up in the 1980’s: they remember those classic arcade games very well. The days when video games were few, but played with great enthusiasm. Very much like the early years when cars were first introduced and there was only the Model T Ford to select, and the only color it came in was black! People still loved to drive that Model T and it was quite popular. Just as those classic arcade games were popular in their original heyday, they are still just as popular today with the children of those who first played them in their youths.

Pac Man was one of the first video games. For those who have never played Pac Man, this is a video game involving a little round yellow guy that eats dots to get the player points. As the Pac Man goes around the maze, he has the ability to eat special goodies that can win the player even more points. However, he must avoid the gremlin guys that are after Pac Man. These gremlins come in several colors and float kind of like ghosts. Pac Man was so popular, that very soon Ms. Pac Man was introduced with a female version of the Pac Man game.

Tetris is another popular classic arcade game. This game involves stacking squares and rectangles to make perfect lines that quickly vanish, achieving the player great points as they vanish. The game starts out nice and easy, with the Tetris boxes and rectangle shapes coming at you quite slowly. However as you achieve various levels, they come much more quickly and the game gets tougher and tougher as you go. This is a game for someone who is quick on the trigger finger and is great at spatial things.

Frogger is classic arcade game that many people love. It is very easy to fall in love with a cute little froggy trying to cross a busy highway. Anyone in their right mind would want to help out this froggy to get to the other side! Frogger must cross difficult traffic, often advancing both forwards and backwards with the traffic. Both cars and trucks will appear on the highway. Again, like most arcade games the game gets tougher as you get better at it. The cars and trucks get faster and the highway gets even wider for Frogger to cross.

Today there are so many arcade games to play. Sometimes it feels like it is hard to keep track of exactly how many games there are out there that both children and adults can enjoy. Classic arcade games are ideal as often these games can be enjoyed easily by adults and children. These games are approachable by players of either beginning or advanced skill levels. Playing classic arcade games is fun for someone that grew up in the decade when they were first introduced, it is a true “blast from the past.” For young children today, these games may seem a bit quaint and dated in comparison to the high-tech arcade games available today. However, the classic arcade games still offer plenty of entertainment and they are great for family fun.

Today, leaders from the American Amusement Machine Association (AAMA), the Amusement & Music Operators Association (AMOA), and the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA) jointly announced future plans for Amusement Expo 2011, which will be held at the Las Vegas Convention Center March 1-3, 2011. The conference and trade show for the coin-operated amusement and family entertainment center industries is owned by AAMA and AMOA and managed by William T. Glasgow Inc. IAAPA will develop and produce an educational program for family entertainment center operators that will be scheduled in conjunction with Amusement Expo 2011. The association will also have a booth on the exhibit floor and host a social event at the show.

AAMA, AMOA, and IAAPA have jointly decided not to extend their 10-year joint venture agreement to produce Fun Expo International beyond the 2010 event which took place in March in Las Vegas.

Amusement Expo was produced for the first time in 2010. It was collocated with Fun Expo in Las Vegas. Approximately 2,500 people, including more than 1,000 buyers, participated in the comingled events. One hundred fifty (150) companies exhibited their goods and services on the trade show floor.

AAMA Board Chairman and Firestone Financial President and CEO David Cohen said, “We were very happy with Amusement Expo 2010. From the show floor to the seminars and networking events, the show fueled a renewed excitement about the future of our industry.” Continuing, he added, “Having a single spring event is the right thing for the exhibitors, the buyers, and the associations involved. It allows us to focus our energy and produce a successful, quality event that will grow in the years to come.”

“Amusement Expo 2010 exceeded our expectations and laid a great foundation on which we can build,” said AMOA President Gary Brewer, owner of Brewer Amusement Co. “We are pleased to have IAAPA’s support in providing education programs for an important group of attendees. We look forward to a bigger and better show in 2011.”

“Amusement Expo is an important event for the FEC industry, and we are pleased to offer IAAPA’s quality education program for FEC operators during the show,” said IAAPA President and CEO Charlie Bray.

Amusement Expo 2011 will take place concurrently with International Pizza Expo 2011. Additional information about Amusement Expo 2011 will be available at in the weeks ahead.
