Every successful venture begins as a weird thought in someone’s mind. People didn’t expect Mickey Mouse or Star Trek to blow up. They rejected it and now they are sulking.
Belief in something out of the norm is what creates successful ventures. One of such ventures in my opinion could be the Atari Video Game-Themed Hotels.
The video game fandom is extremely passionate and eat up everything that it provides. Case in point being Resident evil, Tomb raider and Mortal Kombat. Action figures and movies have been made about them then why not Hotels. It is a weird path but Why not?

To those who don’t know Atari is a pioneer in arcade games, home video game consoles, and home computers.The company’s products, such as Pong and the Atari 2600, helped define the electronic entertainment industry from the 1970s to the mid-1980s.
They will also release their new console, titled VCS after a lot of roadblocks this year.
As far as their hotels are concerned they will break ground in Arizona this year. There is no information about when the work will start in other locations. The planned locations include Austin, Chicago, Denver, Las Vegas, San Francisco, San Jose, and Seattle.
The company has already put on the website an offer for all its fans to become members. These members will have the opportunity to get offers on hotel stays, events, apparel, and more.
Though it is still unclear as to how this video game themed hotel will come into being. It can be concluded that the entire experience will entail a state of the art eSport studio, an Atari gaming playground, meeting and event rooms, co-working spaces, restaurants, bars, a bakery, a movie theatre and a gym.
We wish Atari all the best for their new and unique venture and hope that it reaches new heights of success.
