Southend sure has a lot inbound, Astro suddenly appeared out of nowhere and is starting to make a name for itself amongst the locals!
What began as a quiet, small town arcade filled with retro games has suddenly sprung into action becoming one of the most popular arcades to visit, it has some of the most niche games and unique games that you can only find at Astro. The DanceDanceRevolution machine is the latest, with hardware and software straight from Japan! Inbound are two more machines that the UK has never seen before, beatmaniaIIDX and pop'n music, it's amazing how they've come so far and are starting to draw in customers from around Europe just because of these games!
I have personally enjoyed myself and even became a volunteer staff member at Astro by getting to know the owners, I remember the meetup we had at the end of may where one of the managers even joined us for a meal. So far the arcade has been a pleasure to support and play at, I honestly can't give it any negative points, I only hope everything continues to grow in the future and see more people enjoy the arcade for what it has to offer.
