  • Kind of a labor of love for us who grew up on quarter vids. Kids are allowed, food is served, retro is current. Pretty good selection of old stand-up, console, bowling alley - type video games.  more »
  • We shared a pizza, ciders and a variety of drinks and played some games. Like all arcades, it's noisy, but we had a good time socializing, eating and playing games. The pizza was tasty and the drinks ...  more »

  • This place is so much fun. Just heard of this place a little over a year ago. Kids under 21 is allowed to be there until 9 and then it's 21 and over which is really nice. Great retro games and a few new ones. My 11 year just loves going here. You will need to pay for parking.
  • Was planning on visiting this establishment with my family; we were looking up arcades near us and I did some research which eventually led me to some videos on YouTube. I would never bring my family to this establishment that speaks and shows so much hate to another race. We will take our business elsewhere; even if that means driving for 2 hours to get there.....fun is everywhere and money is common; but good character, morals, class,common decency and common sense is of much higher importance in things I teach my children; versus going to some establishment like this solely due to convenience in travel time. "if you aren't part of the solution you are part of the problem."
  • Great place! The beer is a bit expensive. But good selection of games. Great for date night!
  • Great games from the 80's, still just 25 cents, and a few modern games for a bit more, plus a few great pinball machines at 50 cents a play. Great fun on the cheap. Decent pizza and drink selection, too.
  • Has a great selection of drinks to choose from. However they are slightly overpriced in my opinion. They also have a great selection of arcade games. From older to newer. And some very nice pinball machines.
