After talks with a community leader, the owner of a proposed family entertainment centre in Timonium, Maryland, US, has agreed to limit the number of arcade and video games on site to 40 instead of the maximum of 60 originally requested.

Owner Darin Winick agreed to cut the number after talking with Eric Rockel, president of the Greater Timonium Council, who was concerned that 60 game machines could turn the centre into a "teen hangout." 

The agreement is part of a zoning order that allows the centre, to be called Baltimore Laser Blast, to use 40 spaces immediately to the south for parking.

The family centre would be located between the Earth Trek climbing centre and a warehouse/office building.

It would feature themed laser tag and black-lighted indoor miniature golf and arcade games, as well as rooms for birthday parties and corporate team building.
