At GameWorks, we consider health and safety to be our highest priority. Throughout the unprecedented COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, we have followed the guidance of health officials, and have tried to balance the needs of our guests, team members, and the community based on this official guidance. In an effort to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus), all GameWorks locations will remain temporarily closed until health authorities tell us it is safe and appropriate to reopen our doors. Until then, we’ve hit the pause button on all the fun, but we will be back. Take care and game on!


During these closures we will be deep cleaning, fixing games, and maybe adding some new features to your favorite GameWorks location.  Be sure to come check us out as soon as we are back open, and if you are interested you can still purchase a gift card HERE to use when we reopen
