World Record Weekend – The mid-Atlantic’s premier competitive gaming event draws top gamers from all over the world for its 2010 annual event.


Wyomissing, Pa - April 27th, 2010 - The mid-Atlantic’s premier arcade gaming destination, Challenge Arcade (www.challengearcade.com), is holding its 5th competition where the world’s top competitive gamers will gather to prove that they have the mettle to declare themselves the best in the world.


“Challenge Arcade isn’t known just locally for our amazing world record competitions, but nationally and internationally as well. Gamers from all over the globe travel to Challenge Arcade to show their amazing talent, reflexes, and gaming edge.” says arcade owner, Joe Levan.


Gamers from places like Indiana, New Hampshire, Kentucky, New York, Maryland, Florida, Canada, and the Netherlands have all made the trek to Pennsylvania’s Challenge Arcade to play classic and modern arcade games and put their names at the top of the list in the Guinness Book of World Records and the Twin Galaxies Electronic Scoreboard.


Starting with this year’s World Record Weekend, Challenge Arcade has partnered up with TooManyGames (www.toomanygames.com), the mid-Atlantic’s longest-running gaming convention, to begin adding home console and portable gaming world record attempts to the competition.


Chuck Whitby, founder and executive director of TooManyGames has this to say, “Joe and I see things on a very similar spectrum. We want to make sure that all of the world’s top competitive gamers are recognized for their amazing talent, which is why we’ve teamed up to showcase both arcade and console gamers at World Record Weekend.”


Kelly Tharp, who had gathered national media attention for his marathon Q*Bert game at Challenge Arcade, will once again be spending multiple sleepless days and nights to topple the current world record on the classic cat & mouse arcade favorite, Mouse Trap. This feat is made all the more impressive as Kelly lives with multiple sclerosis, a debilitating degenerative nerve disease.


World Record Weekend has a limited amount of entry slots available for competitive gamers, so early registration is key for this event. Any participant who plans to compete on an arcade machine not currently available in Challenge Arcade’s line-up of equipment is permitted to bring his or her own arcade machine to the venue for their world record attempt and verification.


World Record Weekend II will be held December 3rd, 4th, and 5th at Wyomissing, Pennsylvania’s Challenge Arcade located inside the Berkshire Mall.


Sponsorship opportunities are available for this event which is sure to draw much local and national media attention. Those interested in obtaining a sponsorship packet should contact Joe Levan at 610.401.5700.
