[GAME OVER] Round1 to Shutter at The Mall at Stonecrest

The game will soon be up at Round1 in Lithonia.  Employees confirm that the entertainment facility will on Sunday, December 4 close for the final time at 10PM.  Round1 opened their location at The Mall at Stonecrest (2929 Turner Hill Road) March 4, 2017, in a space created by the combination of several smaller shops.  No explanation was given for the closure.  

Opened in 2001, The Mall at Stonecrest is today anchored by Dillard's, Macy's, JCPenney, Lisa Young Beauty (which opened August 2021 in the former Parisian turned Kohl's), and SeaQuest Interactive Aquariums (which opened in November 2021 in the former Sears).  

Round One USA, the U.S. branch of Japan-based Round One Entertainment, first entered the American market in 2010 with a location in City of Industry, California, a suburb of Los Angeles.  Today the U.S. division includes about 50 facilities across the country offering a variety of activities ranging from bowling, billiards, ping pong and darts to karaoke, arcade games and traditional sports like baseball and basketball via their "Spo-Cha" (Sports Challenge) offering.  Round1 also features a restaurant and full bar.  

Following the Stonecrest closure, Round1 will operate just one location in metro Atlanta.  A combination Round1 + Spo-Cha opened in a large portion of the former Sears department store at Cumberland Mall near Smyrna in March 2021.  The Cumberland Round1 spans approximately 85,000 square feet, significantly larger than the Stonecrest outpost. 

Are you surprised to see Round1 close at The Mall at Stonecrest?  What is your favorite entertainment facility in metro Atlanta?  What is your favorite arcade game?

Total ghetto over there.

I'm not terribly surprised since it doesn't seem like that many US cities get two Round1 locations, Atlanta isn't much of an arcade city, and the Stonecrest location never had the traffic the Cumberland location did because Stonecrest is Stonecrest; hopefully we at least get to keep the one spot.

It actually was never ghetto there. Went a few months ago and it was really nice on the inside wit lots of games and activities. The only issue I could tell was it wasnt as packed as you would expect an entertainment spot with so much to do inside to be. Hate to see it go. Wonder what they will be doing with all the arcade games inside.

I'm not surprised and I initially predicted that. No reason was given for the closure but considering the rise in crime in DeKalb County it was inevitable. It appears we don't know how to have good clean fun anymore without an argument or brandishing a gun.
