Hey guys and thanks for reading today’s article. I recently took a ‘virtual tour’ through the Nintendo playing center in San Diego….and needless to say I was impressed by the facilities. They had our favorite Nintendo logo’s and emblems literally everywhere. There was a descending story board picture wall that took up and entire wall that looked like an arena. Truly impressive to say the least. I just wanted to share a little bit about my experience today and hopefully you will be able to see my vision of what I saw “because basically you aren’t allowed to take pictures” in their facility. But I’ll give it my best shot to try and describe what I saw.
Front office and lobby area
The front office area was nice. It was a concrete floor that looked almost marble, but it was polished and beautiful looking. Now that I think of it, my friend Isaac who does concrete polishing in San Diego, I believe was the contractor for this flooring. He does a great job and I know his kids were excited to visit the Nintendo playing center too, because they are big fans!
The elevators were filled with Nintendo themed characters, as well as the playing consoles from all the years. It had my favorite, the Nintendo64 with my favorite game of all time- NFL Blitz, on my elevator. The Building was about 10 stories high and there were multiple rooms where you could play an assortment of games.
The eating area had a lot of, you guessed it, Nintendo themed foods from Link / Zelda and the Mario brothers. It was pretty cool to check that out and to eat there considering all the celebrities that have been there in the past. I was hungry by the time lunch came around, I was starving!
The parking lot was themed as, you guessed it! Mario Brother Cart! My second favorite game of all time. They had all the racing tracks and painted theme’s just like the game. Must be a pretty cool place to come in and play games for tournaments and even be a full time gamer. I know a lot of my friends are into online gaming with the Xbox and PS3 these days, playing all of those war games and such, but I love my Wii and Nintendo in general. I mean who doesn’t love a good game of Mario Brothers?!
Anyway, that was my experience with the playing center, and if you have had any experiences, please feel free to leave a comment in the comment section below!
