Speed Gaming Dating - Fall In Love Night at the Arcade

Speed Gaming Dating - Fall In Love Night at the Arcade

Sorry this event has been and gone


  • Thu 20 Jan ’22, 7:00pm – 10:00pm


Arcadia Retro Arcade & Pinball Emporia , 204 Barbadoes St , Christchurch





After popular demand and a rapidly growing singles group, we have decided to host the first of a series of singles events to brighten up 2022!

It can be so hard at times to meet new people especially after such a long period of COVID uncertainty. Social circles have become smaller and for many, online dating is just not a thing!

If you are single, want a fun night out, perhaps looking to find a partner or just have fun and meet new people, come along to our night of fun and games at ARCADIA.
Share the event with your single friends and come along. Bring a friend, bring a date!

The night will involve facilitated speed gaming. Pinball tournament and some love stories on stage. Let me know if you want to share a love story on stage in a three-minute speech. Karaoke will be on for those duets with a stranger!

You will get to meet and greet others in the room for a quick game on pinball or another video game. If you connect, you can keep talking, if not, move to the other side of the room and avoid eye contact!


Check out the comments for some hints and tips on how to find someone (if you are looking). We will post links to resources (love letters and invitations) that you can print out and slip to that special someone that you would like to play some video games with. So much easier to slip a note then have an awkward conversation. Slip it to the mechanic, slip it to the cutie at the cafe, slip it to the ones that you would not mind seeing at the singles event.


$10 all the games you can play
$8 drinks
Nibbles provided
Limited to 50 guests
