|Venatious is a game room located in the Sears wing of the Capitola Mall. If you have ever wanted to play your favorite game on a super big screen, this is the place to go. Being located in a mall, it caters mostly to kids who are along with the family on shopping trips, but it's a fun place for all ages if you like games. It's also a great place to drop the kids off for an hour so you can enjoy the stores without wondering where your child wandered off to.
Multiple game platforms are available at Venatious. Playstation, Xbox, PC games and more are accessible through a custom menu on every screen. Choose from a large selection of games and sit down by yourself or with a friend in front of a 60'+ flat screen TV and enjoy the game as it was meant to be played. Keyboard and mouse, or whatever type of controller you want to use is provided as needed.
The knowledgeable staff are all gamers themselves, and are ready with tips and encouragement and friendly smiles to make you feel right at home. Rates vary by the amount of time played. You can buy a couple hours for cheap or just play for 15 minutes for a little more. On the weekends Venatious hosts and after-hours game night from 7-10pm after the mall closes. They provide pizza and refreshments and a solid group of gamers. Call ahead to reserve a spot though, as there is limited space and it fills up fast. Be sure to check their schedule for special game events and tournaments. http://www.venatious.com. This is not your normal arcade, and it is definitely worth checking out.
