BackgroundEdit

Tilt is a chain of arcade centers that can be found in malls across the United States.

The Galleria at 5085 Westheimer Road in Houston, Texas, is a shopping center that has housed multiple shops of all sorts, eateries, a law firm, a skating rink and banks. It also had a Tilt arcade for several years.

The Galleria Tilt was originally opened as Sgt. Singers Pizza Circus on the ice rink level of Galleria I opposite the movie theater. It had a small number of games in the front of the store and a pizza restaurant and animatronic show in the back. At some point the animatronic show was retired and at the end of the store's life only a large-screen projection TV remained.

When the store was remodeled, the arcade had a tiled floor and bright, extensive neon lighting.

Eventually the store was moved across the corridor in place of the old movie theater and given extensive decor, including a giant hanging pinball and flipper, a model of a roller coaster, and a number of TV monitors advertising the new Motion Theater inside.

The store was closed after the Christmas season, 2013, and some of the contents auctioned off January 18, 2014 by Captain's Auction Warehouse.
