Welcome to Arok!

You are at the right place if you are looking for the Commodore 64 / +4, 8bit Atari and / or Spectrum scene. You won't be disappointed if interested in exotic computers of the 80s, early Nintendo, Sega or Atari game consoles either. Arok covers them all and lets you celebrate 8bit love all together :)

Location

Ajka is a lovely, small town in western Hungary, north to lake Balaton. It is easy to access by train (all intercities have a stop here) or car (route nr. 8). Although we are organizing Árok for over 22 years here, the actual party place is new once again. We are gathering the 8 bit power in the local ice stadium (don't panic - without ice :) ) which is most likely the best possible place so far. It has plenty of room, easy access, has lots of parking space, own bufet and multiple shops are in the close neighborhood also.

If you arrive by train or bus, you need a little more walking than before. You might use this map to get in direction.

Arriving by car is going to be easier this time as you won't need to get into the town center. From route nr. 8 head to Ajka from Bakonygyepes (not from Ajkarendek!!!), at the roundabout next to the Tesco store take the first exit, leaving the gas station turn to the left. You have arrived ;)
