Victorian Age Kinetic Clock
We’re not just building a restaurant where you can play games; we’re creating an experience. Our immersive venue will take you back in time.
Harrison Nealey, the owner and artist at Industrial Arts LLC, is crafting an amazing 10 foot high kinetic clock with moving gears. Steam effects will also be added to several key areas in Game Train to highlight our Victorian Steampunk train theme.
We need your help to fund this work of art and make Game Train THE Front Range destination!
We will keep you updated on the progress on this clock.
