Gap Filler’s major project for the 2016-17 summer is Super Street Arcade
Super Street Arcade is the world’s first giant, outdoor arcade game system. Get active as you move the giant joystick and jump on the over-sized buttons to play one of the unique classic-style retro games.
With an oversized joystick situated at the intersection of Tuam and High Streets in the central city and a 5m-wide screen mounted on the Vodafone Building, Super Street Arcade takes gaming to a whole new level. You’ll need two or three people to work the controller, so make a new friend and have a go!
