There’s a new indoor attraction in Destin within Uncle Buck’s Fish Bowl & Grill at the Destin Commons.

In addition to the 16-lane sea-themed bowling alley, the family fun and dining center now boasts a state-of-the-art arcade.

"We just felt that the Destin Commons was missing an arcade," said Jimmy Quitugua, head of bowling and arcade operations for Destin’s Uncle Buck’s. "So far everybody’s been enjoying it; it gives them something to do while waiting for lanes or dinner seating."

The arcade, which opened March 15, features 29 games including a 13-foot claw game called "Big One Xtreme," "Jurassic Park," "Skee-Ball" and a giant version of "Crossy Road."

"The No. 1 video game we have is 'The Walking Dead,' followed by our No. 2 game, which is super-sized 'Space Invaders,'" Quitugua said.

The arcade runs on a card system in which patrons purchase a card for $1 and load it with credits for games. Cost for games ranges from 75 cents to $3, and cards can be loaded at intervals of $5-$100. At the end of arcade play, gamers can cash in their virtual tickets for prizes.

"We have candies, games and toys all the way up to drones and dash-cams," Quitugua said of the prizes.

Quitugua explained that the Destin Uncle Buck’s is the first in the nation to incorporate an arcade into the establishment, which is owned by Bass Pro Shops. He added that in the future the company plans to add arcades into their other Uncle Buck’s locations.

"There are 12 Uncle Buck’s Fish Bowls and we are hoping to have arcades in all 12 by 2020," he said.

Quitugua said Destin is the busiest Uncle Buck's location in the nation, which is why they were chosen as the inaugural restaurant to have an arcade.

"We gross one of the highest numbers annually," he said. "Being in this notoriously busy tourist area, it seemed like the best market for it."

Uncle Buck's Fish Bowl & Grill is located at 4251 Legendary Drive within the Destin Commons. For more information, visit restaurants.basspro.com/UncleBucksFishBowl/Destin/Default.aspx or call 850-269-6100.
