Where New Wave Arcade Began

I’ve always had a passion for gaming from my Amiga 1200 in my younger years right up to my Xbox One.

We’ve got a good eye for a bargain and whilst browsing eBay we found our first Arcade cabinet in 2017. A trip up to Newcastle in the sheer hope the small Supreme Video Jamma cabinet would fit in the back of the car.

It snowballed from there as an idea to open a video gaming arcade in Ripon.

    Fantastic place. Took my five-year-old son and we had an absolute blast. We played a load of cool arcade machines and on a bunch of retro consoles too. My son especially enjoyed beating me at Street Fighter 2 and the free lolly he got! Rory, the owner, was brilliant and made us feel really welcome. Highly recommended and we will be going back.

    Great place. Went above and beyond when me and the kids were running late. Spot-on covid restrictions and great games. Kids haven't stopped talking about it. We'll definitely be back!

    Had a fantastic time. Took our son for his birthday. I'm not a gamer myself i even had a go and had a brilliant time. Thankyou New Wave Arcade for your amazing friendliness and hospitality. Highly recommend a visit to friends and family and will definitely be returning customers. Tammy, Paul and Lucas.
