A Massive Free Arcade Opened in Nashville Last Year [PHOTOS]
The next time you're in Nashville, Tennessee, there's a new stop you might want to add to your "must-do" list!
According to a viral Facebook post that I've been seeing non-stop this past week, Nashville is home to a giant arcade called the Game Terminal. It's located at 201 Terminal Court in a completely renovated open-air shipping terminal. The business' Facebook page says:
"Game Terminal is a destination for enthusiasts, pinheads, out-of-towners, and the curious local: bringing an excited, diverse mix of casual gamers and old pros together amid the vibrant glow of vintage gaming."
The viral social media post about the Game Terminal was written by a popular YouTuber named Jared Guynes, who just got the opportunity to tour the facility. In the post, he reveals more details about the business, which just opened in November of 2020 and cost around 3 million dollars. His post reads:
"The massive complex features 260 machines, approximately 100 pinball machines and more than 150 arcade games. Remarkably the arcade games are set to FREE PLAY and there is NO ADMISSION FEE."
Although many of the games are free, the pinball machines cost $1 to play, and a few of premium arcade games require some tokens. The arcade makes the majority of their money from the pinball machines, as well as concessions and merch.

If you're wondering if this place is family friends, the answer is yes... until 8 p.m. After that, it's ages 21 and over only. In addition to all the arcade games, Game Terminal also has three bars, outdoor cornhole, a basketball court, jumbo beer pong, and food trucks. Here are a few photos from their Facebook page:
