SIX months into the pandemic and it looks like our fun days at the country’s largest arcade and entertainment center has called it game over – or not.
Just this week, Timezone shared on Facebook that its selling some of its game machines. Their display included the basketball machine called “Hotshot”, and its infamous “Air Hockey” set.
These portable rings are definitely one the go-to amusements in Timezone. It has its own metal ring, some balls, and a digital scoring system. Hotshot is sold at P65,000.
The imported Air Hockey set was also on sale with a starting price of P55,000. It has an overhead playfield illumination with large 4” score displays on top.
The post, however, garnered emotional reactions from netizens. That’s why Timezone assured: “Our venues are still not operational because we are not yet allowed to open by the government but Timezone is not closing anytime soon.”
It continued: “Just like most of you, during this quarantine period, we had the time to declutter and prepare space for the news games that we will be offering when we do get to open.”
The entertainment park has been closed down nationwide since March, as the government only allows “essential” operations to function, given the rising cases of COVID-19 in the country.
While Timezone has vowed to continue its service to the kids and kids at heart they cater, a few of its likes have already announced their shut down.
For instance, the Jump Yard trampoline park is now closed permanently, as well as the interactive world of KidZania Manila in Bonifacio Global City.
“We miss you all but we will back with more FUN and GAMES (and tons of safety measures in place) once we’re allowed to open,” the page said in one of the comments.
