With music, balloons and confetti shots, Elliott Loonstra, Aruba’s Paralympic Medalist, cut the big ribbon symbolizing the Grand Opening. Elliott is a great role model and inspiration to the youth. Arcade Aruba also invited the children from Sonrisa to be the first ones to try out the new gaming machines and to enjoy themselves. At the end of the day, each child went home with a nice prize.  According to Paul Gielen, General Manager of Renaissance Aruba; “The Arcade was created to add entertainment to the mix at the Renaissance Marketplace. This way children can play while parents can sit and relax at one of the restaurants or bars at the Renaissance Marketplace. And this is just the beginning, in the future we will add more exciting machines to the mix”.

The arcade is open every day from 12 PM to 12 AM offering drinks and food as well. Make sure to follow Arcade Aruba on Instagram – @arcadearuba or  to stay up-to-date with the latest news and promotions.
