The FunHaven amusement park, among the best locations for DDR in Ottawa, raised its prices.
In the past, the price was only $1 per player, but now, it costs $1.25 per player. This increase also affects Guitar Hero Arcade, Fast & Furious Super Cars, Super Bikes 2 and many other games.
For a lower price, one can purchase bulk credits. Bonuses remain the same: $2 per $20 reload, $7 per $50 reload, or $20 per $100 reload. The old price of $1 per player was effectively lowered to 91¢, 88¢ and 84¢ respectively when purchasing bulk credits. These prices are now $1.14, $1.10 and $1.05 respectively.
Let’s hope that the arcade continues to maintain its DDR machine properly and, we can only hope, with occasional discounts.
Update on March 23, 2015 at 21h: FunHaven recently introduced a promotion on Thursday nights, which offers games like DDR and more at half price from 17h to 21h! This lowers the regular price of $1.25 to a low 62½¢, undercutting competitor Xscape and its DDR Extreme machine. The bulk pricing of $1.14, $1.10 and $1.05 is slashed in half to 57¢, 55¢ and 52½¢. This is not only the lowest price for DDR in Ottawa, but this price is per player and thus also valid for eight-panel single-player games.
There was a software glitch on FunHaven’s DDR X2. It made the speed modifiers randomly change, such as from 2X to 1X or from 2X to 6½X. These changes happened before the song starts or while dancing. A technician fixed this.
Update in December 2015: The price hike has been cancelled around mid-2015.
