LOL... one of Colorado's SuperNOVA's made its way into Indy

Post by WyomingMyst » Sat Oct 13, 2012 1:37 pm

Well on one of my first assignments, I visited the Caribbean Cove hotel and waterpark to train the NAMCO location manager for the arcade there, and to my surprise a familar DDR SuperNOVA was in the token-based arcade. I knew because my scores were still intact on the machine. It was originally in a Brunswick Zone in Lakewood, CO before NAMCO lost the contract for the Colorado Brunswick Zones. I would not recommend playing at this location, because the arcades there are meant for hotel guests only and the humidity from the nearby swimming pool is overkill when trying to play (trust me I tried). Not to mention the pads need working on still (they never were good to begin with).

Zenius has been updated to reflect this location. There is a guitar hero as well (in the game card arcade in the waterpark), also not the greatest but hey they both serve their purpose for the general audience of the facility.

Random, but I guess more DDR never hurts.
Music is a special thing because everyone is wrong on everything but it all works out in the end and we all get high as shit.

I seem to recall a report that there was a 5th Mix there some time ago. I went to that location...maybe 2-3 years ago? I don't recall what was there now as far as games. My memory is clouded by how terrible the waterpark was and how I didn't ever want to go back. :(

It's being reported that Caribbean Cove Hotel & Conference Center closed down on October 29. RIP.

It's probably for the best. That place was a hole.

Yelp reviews seem to indicate the waterpark was closed as early as December of 2015! So is it that the whole hotel is closed now?

I mean, what exactly is the point of that facility without the waterpark?
A normality test:
+++ATH
If you are no longer connected to the internet, you need to apply more wax to your modem: it'll make it go faster.
If you find this funny, you're a nerd.
If neither of the above apply, you are normal. Congratulations.

I mean, it was also a hotel and conference center. But apparently they weren't good at those things either.
