The Dam Sports Arcade is a vintage arcade soon to be established in the heart of Beaver nation. We will be a full service restaurant and bar with all-ages hours, a great collection of games and fun special events and concerts.
Our historic building is located in downtown Corvallis in the Sivetz coffee building. This building is a lot of fun with an open layout, perfect for an arcade, but the cost of engineering this beast back to life has gotten quite high. We are in the process of installing a seismic upgrade, ADA access and a full fire sprinkler system in order to open to the public.
If we can exceed our fundraising goal we will be in a much better position to open this summer, 2014. The Dam was conceived and will be staffed by a group of youthful Corvallis natives, and our ideology is all about giving back to our community. Once we open we will begin organizing fundraisers supporting local youth sports and kids in need. We can't wait to provide our customers with a one-of-a-kind fun place to play but we are serious about uniting Beaver nation with a sense of charity and making our town a better place. We will recognize your generosity as an early supporter of the Dam. Your donation will be rewarded with your choice of fun incentives that will never again be available.
We understand that not everyone who would like to support the cause can afford to contribute financially, but you can still help build The Dam. The best way to get this arcade open is to spread the word. Let your parents know what a great gift a t-shirt or a membership in the mug club would make! Tell your friends with kids how much fun a private free-play birthday party in the arcade would be! If nothing else tell your friends that a top-notch vintage arcade is coming to Corvallis! GO BEAVS!
