The team behind the High Score arcade in Newbury have opened a new location in Southampton, bringing classic cabinets, table games and consoles to the city’s East Street.


Stocked with machines from Corporate Amusement Services’ for-hire selection, the venue offers unlimited play on the full range of titles during each prepaid session.

“We are excited to be providing Southampton with this brand-new leisure activity,” founder David Field told The Daily Echo. “We are looking forward to bringing this new concept for locals to enjoy and are delighted to be creating new jobs in these rather unusual times.”

“Our vision is to provide a safe and fun experience for families and friends.”

As well as classics such as Pac-Man and Space Invaders, High Score also features pinball, an air hockey table, grabbers, ride-on simulators, and a number of modern consoles, which will be linked up to the arcade’s giant video wall in monthly rotation.

“We have for many years had a desire and passion to build a fun experience for parents to share with their children and in particular, an activity that would be positioned as genuine ‘value for money’ and will have guests leaving with a smile on their faces.”

Following the opening, Farnborough is expected to become the High Score team’s next location.
