DTLA AdvisorsComment

Searching for spring break activities for your kids? We've got you covered! Join us for Camp H&H for a fun week of science labs, crafts, play and games!

From 9:30am to 2:00pm on April 7th-11th and April 14th-18th, your kids will explore a few of our H&H businesses around the the downtown Los Altos area. Each day starts off in the Play! courtyard- where kids learn and experiment in a science based lab. After that, campers move on over to Red Racer Hobby Shop to race on the custom-built slot car track and play in our LEGO construction zone. Heading over to The Makery to stretch their creative muscles and imaginations, kids will create a series of painting and art projects individually and in groups. Finally, after a healthy lunch from local restaurants, the day will end at Area 151, where kids will have a chance to test their skills and gaming prowess on arcade games, both new and old, like Air Hockey, Skeeball, NBA Hoops, Doodle Jump and many more!

Prices start at $100 per day or $495 for the entire week.

Has it Been a While? Look What's New!

DTLA AdvisorsComment

Have you been to the arcade recently? Things look a little different from the last time you've been here, right? Don't believe me? See for yourself:

You might have noticed some new games in these pictures. Let's find out a little more about them, shall we? 

2-Minute Drill

ftball.jpg

This is an interactive football game. The goal of this game is to score as many points as possible in under two-minutes. There are three hoops on the backboard that players can score points from. There are also six targets that randomly pop out with point values ranging from 10 to 99 points. These targets will test players' reflexes and accuracy. The higher your score, the better your rank. So, how about it? Are you a rookie or are you good enough to achieve the Hall-of-Fame rank? 

Harpoon Lagoon

Ready your harpoons! It's time for Harpoon Lagoon! Go deep below the sea and catch as much fish as you can. The more fish you catch, the greater your ticket reward will be.  Keep an eye out on the bonus chest in the middle of the ocean for that is where the Magical Jellyfish lives. She's quite the beauty and worth a LOT of tickets. Be sure you catch her or else she'll return to the safety of her treasure chest.

Pump It Up: Infinite

1 or 2 players can play this dance-and-rhythm game and bust a move as they rack up the points in a number of game modes. With a large library of songs to choose from, you'll always find new songs to challenge you. Don't worry if you think you're no good at this game. There is an Easy Mode for those with two left feet and a bad sense of timing. 

Dynamic Boxing

For one token, you can choose between 3 game modes to play to test your strength, speed, and reflexes. Are your friends there, with you? Nothing like a little friendly competition, right, especially among friends? This game is perfect for your group! Why not play the Tournament mode and compete against one another to see who is the strongest, fastest, and quickest person in the group.

Galactic Glow Night

DTLA AdvisorsComment

As the sun set, the black lights went up, along with special decor for a very special night at the arcade. September 21st was Area 151's very first Galactic Glow Night! We had a ton of fun transforming the Party Room into a cosmic, black-lit dance hall. Paper lanterns were hung with care, streamers lined the walls and climbed to the ceiling and light fixtures, and glowing black-lit bubbles drifted through the air as kids of all ages explored the space around them.  

Kids also enjoyed slices of pizza (courtesy of Spot Pizza) and soda or water while they hung out, outside, in the courtyard as they took a break from dancing in the Party Room and playing games in the arcade.

Did you check out the prizes we had? We bought special prizes just for this very occasion! You should see the prizes we had waiting for you to win:

  • Glow-in-the-Dark Stomp Rockets
  • Glow-in-the-Dark Frisbees
  • Light-Up Fairy Wands
  • Light-Up Beam Sabers

And so much more! 

And, with that, the night was a success! We're all happy that you joined us for such a fun event. We hope to do more in the future. If you have any pictures, upload them onto Instagram and tag us #area151dtla and share, with us, your favorite memory of the night.

Instagram Contest @area151DTLA

DTLA AdvisorsComment

Are you good at estimating?  Well Area 151 (@area151dtla) is currently having an Instagram contest where you have to guess how many tokens we were able to fit inside this smiley face!

WP_20130524_001.jpg

We filled one of our popular soft-bouncing smiley face balls with as many of our signature tokens as we could.  Head on over to our instagram page and comment on the post with the smiley face ball, just be sure to include your best guess for how many tokens are stuffed inside. 

Whoever has the closest guess by Friday (May 31st) will win all of the tokens currently occupying our fuzzy friend.  Feel free to come by the arcade at any time and ask to see the smiley face ball if it will help you guess!
