A spokesman for Gamer X said: “The motivation for it came from Spain. I go away on holiday with my family to Spain quite a lot and I tend to find myself spending a lot of money in the arcades over there, so I thought to myself ‘let’s put an arcade centre together’.

"But I wanted it to be better than just an arcade centre, I wanted to make it into a full kids’ attraction.

“There was quite a bit of rain over the summer and it meant we had to renovate a renovation concept that was already in place because the rainfall ruined ceiling tiles and walls.

“We were originally going to open in summer but we had to re-plaster and get back on track. But we believe there’s something here for everyone, dads, mums, friends, kids, toddlers.”

Based at Units 4-5 at Lowthian House, in Market Street in Preston, Gamer X Preston is run by the same group which owns Wacky World in Preston and Jungle World in Leyland.

What’s more, Gamer X Preston is just the first of many such venues, with further branches slated to open in Wigan, Huddersfield, and Rotherham soon.

The spokesman added: “A lot of work has gone into it so to see all the passion for it from people makes me proud.

"It’s so good to see and, from our point of view, we’re just looking forward to welcoming the people of Preston.

"The support we’ve had from local people has been overwhelming so we just want to grow now.”
