ROANOKE, Va. - Downtown Roanoke will soon have a new attraction.

The Roanoke STARCADE will have classic and new arcade systems and activities for gaming and competition. 

The STARCADE will be on the second floor of Center in the Square near the Roanoke Pinball Museum.

"I'm just hoping that it will bring kids in here. We just want kids to have fun, but we want them to learn at the same time and when you're having fun and you're learning, you remember it," said Aimee Simmons, manager of the Roanoke STARCADE.

The admission fee of $12.50 per person will let you play as many games as you want, similar to the pinball museum. 

The grand opening is set for 5 p.m. Thursday, January 31st. They will have live music and refreshments. 

The Roanoke STARCADE will be open from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Thursdays and Fridays, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturdays and 1 to 6 p.m. on Sundays.
