The Zelky’s Warehouse is done!!

A little Zelky’s Update…

    • The Zelky’s warehouse is finally complete!! It’s been a longggg time coming to get a place where we can store prizes, receive shipments, and even have employees park their cars before they bike into town for their shifts.

  • We’ve got office spaces, TONS of storage, heating… The whole sha-bang! We’re working hard at moving our overfill supply there right now. See a photo of the warehouse here!

 

  • We’re getting ready to have our best summer ever— hiring supervisors, stocking the best prizes we can find, upgrading out signage, playing around with e-tickets (shhh), tossing around Zelky’s Donut Rings ideas, improving our employee training procedures, et cetera… It’s exciting!!
  • Question for you: any games you wish we have that we don’t already?!
    • We love going to conferences and events to stay up to date with what’s new, but sometimes these games slip out from under our noses . . . If you have any suggestions, message us! We’d love to hear❤️

We can’t wait for this upcoming summer season and we hope we can see you soon!!

The Holidays were a BLAST!!

WOW!

You all blew us away– we had such a blast this holiday break! There were so many smiling faces, laughs, jokes, and wins! Just phenomenal. Trunkloads of fun!! (see what I did there?)

People come from all over the place to visit us in the winter and for good reason– Rehoboth gets into the seasons’ spirit and so do we– we opened our doors for 11 days straight over the holidays, and that’s the longest we’re open outside of the summer season. 11 days and two locations makes for a WHOLE lot of games!

Yep, that’s right– if you really want to have some fun with us, come during late December. Some families visit Rehoboth for a couple days to snatch their swipe cards and play play play! Then they take their swipe cards home with them, bring them back the next time they visit and keep on playing. It’s a thing! But if you missed out on coming during the holidays, we’re open during the weekends and you can see our hours at Zelkys.com/hours!

In the meantime, we’re working on some biiiig things over here at the beach! We’re excited to share them eventually, so stay tuned

Keep on Trunkin’,

Zelky’s at the IAAPA Attractions Expo!

Orlando Florida is home to an amazing event full of inspiration, ideas, networking, and fun- it’s called the IAAPA Attractions Expo- and many entertainment companies from far and wide come to display their newest and greatest products here.

This year, ten of us Zelky’s employees went to see what the fuss was all about, and we weren’t disappointed!

With 42,000 different attractions like virtual reality or roller coasters, Hunter said there’s literally any kind of fun you can imagine there. The industry is massive and here’s what’s surprising about it:

All the entertainment companies work together, NOT against each other.

Just like Matt and Chuck will go down to Ocean City to talk to the people who run the arcades in Ocean City MD, everyone at the Attractions Expo loves sharing new things with everyone else in the industry. We love to have fun and so do our “competitors”, but there’s nothing very competitive about the industry- it’s just like sharing hobbies!

There were tons of new games and technology at the event and we know big things are coming up at Zelky’s within the next couple years. Moving forward we’re looking to introduce new tech, start fun new concepts, and keep pushing our brand to be more of the Zelky’s Beach Arcade you want to know and love!

Keep on Trunkin’,
