Ground Kontrol Classic Arcade says
Celebrate 35 years of Donkey Kong with us!

Gaming's first ape made his arcade debut on July 9, 1981, with a platformer that challenged players to take Jumpman (more commonly known as Mario) to the top of a challenging tower to save Pauline. While the game was an instant hit for Nintendo and spawned sequels and spin-offs that continue to this day, the original gained a new generation of followers thanks to the documentary "The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters"!

This weekend, stop by Ground Kontrol for DK-inspired food and drink specials, and be sure to play a game or two of Donkey Kong!

Post a photo of your high score to our Facebook page or your own Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #HappyBirthdayDK and you'll be entered to win a drawing for some exclusive Donkey Kong merch including a pint glass and a signed poster by "The King of Kong" stars Walter Day and Billy Mitchell! Winners will be drawn Monday morning at Noon.
