GameWorks at Newport on the Levee Shuts Its Doors

GameWorks shut down just short of its 20-year anniversary at the Newport on the Levee location.

GameWorks, a popular amusement arcade, joined Newport on the Levee in 2002, just a year after the Levee opened. This week, the owners announced the location has shut its doors. A sign on the door mentions a possible rebranding and relaunch, but for now the doors are closed.

In a brief statement, the owners of the Los Angeles-based company explained their business has not recovered from the impact of the Covid pandemic.

"Thank you for the many years of memories! The past 20 months and counting we have seen our business turned upside down and continued slow economic recovery has left us no choice other than to close," they wrote. 

They thanked their customers and fans and offered a few ways to reach them with questions via or by writing GameWorks Inc., 5670 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles CA 90036. 

A sign on the door directs customers to another business in the Levee, Rotolo, and mentions a relaunch in the future. Fort Thomas Matters reached out to the company and to the Levee management and will update as new information is available.
