Graduates of the 1991 NHTC Laconia Campus Graphic Arts Dept. celebrated their 10 year reunion at Funspot. It's hard to say who had more fun, the kids or the adults!
My First trip to Funspot in 2009.
It was awesome.  I got to meet Walter Day.  I also won a machine from Gary Vincent. Great times!

This pic is from the year 2000 classic gaming event.

Stan Loo, Jon Dworkin and I had driven up and for the first time we were not the only gamers from New York City in attendance.

Darren Harris (Staten Island) and Zack Hample (Manhattan) arrived for the very first time. In addition to meeting some new, local friends in the hobby, this was Darren's re-introduction to the gaming world and in his very first gameplay attempt he set a 2nd highest score in the world on "Ms Pacman" while playing side by side with Chris Ayra. And Zack, in his first trip he set a new world record on "Breakout".
I've known each player for 11+ years now and I have the annual Funspot classic arcade gaming event to thank for it.

Funspot has been a vacation destination for me since 2005. Every year there is always something new I find out about its illustrious history. Last year I found out more about the quaint Gingerbread man head that sits downstairs in the restaurant... and as the picture shows, amusement for everyone at the table that day soon followed. :)

Great time!  We drove all the way up from Jersey just to visit!  Most of those games we remember playing as kids, and haven't seen or heard of in probably 20+ years!  Great job on keeping them all running, and thanks for a great time! June 9, 2012

My Boyfriend Paul and I vacation at FunSpot once or twice a year. Best place ever. Here he is in September of 2011 just beating Out Run!!!

I go to Funspot every year. The tournaments are great and I always have a great time. I've met so many wonderful people from the staff to people who just love to play games. Thanks Mr. Lawton!

Me and my best friend, Randy Hamilton, have been best buds since the 3rd grade. There was a local arcade a block from where we lived and we were there almost constantly! As a bucket list trip, we saved up for a year to go to Funspot for 3 days and we had a blast!  We came all the way from West Monroe, LA just to come to Funspot!  We were fortunate enough to meet Bob and he even sat down with us and talked with us as well as posed for a few pictures! That was the icing on the cake!  One day we hope to be able to come back to Funspot!  We felt like we’d stepped back in time and we were kids again!  Thanks, Funspot for taking us back to our youth and letting us be kids again!
