HANOVER, Pa. (WHTM) — A retro-style arcade has officially opened its newest arcade location in Hanover.

abc27 news reported back in March when the owner of Timeline Arcade, Brandon Spencer, first announced that he would be opening a new location on the first floor of a two-story building on 22 Carlisle Street.

Coincidentally, Timeline Arcade used to occupy the second floor of this building in Hanover for several years, before closing it down due to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. According to Spencer, closing the long-time Hanover location was the only way to keep his York-based Timeline Arcade from closing as well.

The new, approximately 3,000 square-foot Timeline Arcade in Hanover will take its customers back in time with a “70s-themed mall” design. According to Spencer, the new arcade is a recreation of a popular, old-school mall arcade called ‘Time Out’.

Spencer’s new Hanover location features 60 different retro games spanning from the 70’s, and 80’s, to today. Specifically, the new Timeline Arcade will offer many Pinball machines, retro arcade games, air hockey, pool tables, and more!

It should also be noted that similar to their York County location, this new Timeline Arcade will be BYOB.

The new Hanover Timeline Arcade offers the same “affordable fun” rates as their York County location, which will be:

  • 1 hour of play = $10 per person (each additional 1/2 hour is $5)
  • All Day Pass = $25 per person

The new Timeline Arcade held its grand opening on Friday, September 29. Timeline Arcade’s hours of operation will be:

  • Sundays – Mondays // 12 p.m. to 11 p.m.
  • Fridays – Saturdays // 12 p.m. to 2 p.m.

“It is really exciting to go back – 13 years ago we started at the mall in Hanover, but it is just great to be back here [in Hanover],” Spencer said. ” Everyone has had open arms for us coming home and it feels great.”
