Gameway Unveils Highly Anticipated Next Generation Video Gaming Lounge in Delta’s New Terminal 3 at LAX
Gameway has reimagined the modern airport lounge experience since their launch in 2018 with two locations at Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW). Whether travelers are stopping in during a layover, or have just arrived at their gate, they can enjoy a unique experience with personalized gaming packages. Gameway offers top-of-the-line luxury gaming stations with next generation Microsoft Xbox Series X, PlayStation, and PCs, complete with the newest games. Each station is equipped with Razer Inc. Iskur Gaming Chairs and Kraken Headsets, and dedicated high speed internet. Gameway maintains post-pandemic cleanliness standards, an extensive menu of snacks and beverages, and at Gameway Ultra locations, the RetroZone® bar.
Presenting a unique, entertaining alternative to airport travel, Gameway asks, “Why wait, when you can game?” Founded and led by husband-and-wife team Jordan Walbridge and Emma Walbridge, Gameway’s growth has been explosive since capturing travelers’ attention in 2018. After first opening at the Dallas Fort-Worth Airport, Gameway was awarded Best Traveler Amenity in 2019 at the Airports Council International – North America Awards and later, in 2020, voted Most Innovative Customer Experience at the Airport Experience News Traveler Awards. They followed this success with two new locations in 2021: LAX Terminal 6 and Charlotte Douglas International Airport. With their fifth location, and second at LAX, the Walbridges wanted to take their brand to the next level in Delta’s Terminal 3.
“Our aim is to enhance the traveler’s experience by offering some fun entertainment at the airport,” beamed Co-Founder Emma Walbridge. “Being an ACDBE-certified business I am also extremely thankful to Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield, LAX, and Delta for this opportunity.”
“Gameway is the real reason to get to your gate early,” smiled Co-Founder Jordan Walbridge. Mr. Walbridge, an Afghanistan War Veteran, often used video games to decompress with his squad after missions while deployed. “Video games are a great way to de-stress; airports can be stressful and often there’s an atmosphere of ‘hurry up and wait.’ We’re upgrading the typical wait-at-the-gate experience with a new, stimulating entertainment option for travelers of all ages.”
The Walbridges are set to open another Gameway location at Houston’s Hobby Airport this October, and have an aggressive strategy to expand their domestic footprint to 14 new airports over the next two years.
