Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- The mega-arcade named GameWorks formerly located on the Las Vegas Strip has found a new home.

GameWorks was previously located near the MGM Grand and was a popular destination for those too young for bars and casinos. However, it closed in March of last year.

The new location at Town Square Las Vegas will be located below the AMC Town Square 18 movie theater. The 37,000-square-foot venue will feature lounge-like bowling, a state-of-the-art laser tag arena and a tournament-ready 100-seat LAN gaming center for online and PC gaming.

GameWorks will also have 125 video games and a 225-seat restaurant set up for sports viewing on a 105-inch HD television and a video wall.

GameWorks is scheduled to open in November.

In addition to GameWorks, Town Square is also welcoming McFadden's Restaurant & Salon, a children's shoe store and Panda Express.

McFadden's will offer a happy hour, dinner and a late-night menu. The restaurant will also feature 40 HD televisions.

McFadden's is scheduled to open this summer. Panda Express will also open around the same time.

The children's shoe store -- pediped footwear -- will open May 17. The company behind the store is based in Henderson.

Town Square is a dining, shopping and entertainment complex on Las Vegas Boulevard near the intersection of Interstate 15 and the beltway.
