Round 1 Stadium is one of those places in Okinawa that everyone should experience at least once. It's so large in scope and its offerings that it can be difficult to describe.
But, I'll try anyway.
Take an empty dish add a healthy helping of Dave and Busters, mix in some Chuck E' Cheese and Bally's Las Vegas, then top it off with a dash of YMCA and some Japanese seasoning, you'd get this tower of fun that literally has something for everyone.
I recently visited and traversed all 7 floors top to bottom (so you don't have to).
Here are 36 ways you and a few buddies can get in hours of entertainment (and a workout) in this funhouse of joy.
1st Floor - Amusement Floor1 - Games: From dance and drum games to serious fighting and casual games, they have it all here (there are also arcade-style games located on floors 2 and 5).

4th Floor - Relaxation and Comics (Only accessible from the 6th Floor)You must check into Spo-Cha on the 6th floor and then take the elevator down to this floor. (confusing, I know)
