Pinball is back! An arcade and pinball gaming staple that stood in downtown Columbia for more than 25 years before closing its doors is back on Broadway. The official Grand Opening of Gunther's Games is scheduled for Saturday April 27, with activities running throughout the evening.

Lifelong Columbians will remember the original Gunther's that stood at 1106 E. Broadway until it closed in 2007. With no other place downtown to play classic games such as Galaga, Ms. Pacman and Donkey Kong, game enthusiast Wesley Upchurch felt the time was right to bring back the original arcade.

It's not just classic games that line the walls of the arcade. At the new Gunther's Games players can also play modern games such as Guitar Hero, Big Buck Hunter, and Mario Kart 2.

The new location at 923 E. Broadway, will have a ribbon cutting ceremony at 3 p.m. followed by a wide variety of promotions, giveaways, and tournaments. From 4 to 6 p.m. KCMQ will announce the winners of its multigame high score competition, which has been running for the last week as part of Gunther's soft opening phase.

BXR radio is giving away tickets to shows and music festivals from 6 - 8 p.m. And at 9 p.m. there is a Power Putt golf challenge and at 10 p.m. challengers can face of head to head in the racing tournament, presented by Sports Radio 100.1. Additionally, there will be free subs, giveaways, and contests going on all night.

"The real fun," Upchurch says, "is challenging friends to games that bring back memories of times past and making new ones with your children. With a whole wall of pinballs, it's an experience for all to share."
