|2015-07-29||BHT||Rick was the coolest and kindest dude ever !
Used to spend many hours there on every visit. I remember there was remote control racing outside at nights.
I still have a voucher from when one of the games ate my quarter.
|2014-05-22||Brett Howard||I remember when this place opened! We started going to VR after Space Alley closed and was turned into the Alley Cat Pub. Anyone remember Space Alley at the Civic Center? It was right by the original location for Sidewalk Surfer!|
|2013-06-14||Gabe Salas||I have lived in the area and VR was a good part of my youth.It was a very sad day as I rode past 777 and saw it was gone!Times have changed too much ugh!
|2011-05-13||David Chandler||This place WAS may childhood. Rick was a great guy and looked after us all. Lots of awesome memories because of what he did to make this a great place for kids to hang out and stay out of trouble. Remeber when it was across the street next to the Wendys - Right around the same time Centepede was released|
|2011-03-09||Bj Render||I had many great times there.Rick was great to all of us just out causing trouble. That was the foose ball hang out.|

Another arcade washed away in the ever flowing river of time.

|2002-11-27||Mike||VR has, over the past two years, replaced many of their old school video games and pinball machines. Pinball machines they used to have: Indiana Jones, Junk Yard, Jurasiac Park, South Park and Medieval Madness. For vids. they had Galaga and robotron - gone now...however, they still have 1942 (sometimes set on a free plane every 70K), Ms. Packman and Tetris.
About a year ago they remodeled and I think made the place a lot less appealing. The video game area is small and feels cramped. I like the backroom - I wish they didn't get rid of all the pinball machines! |
|2002-07-07||Davina Hedger||Hey well this is by far the best arcade ever except for Dave n Busters. Video Round-up needs
newer games and they have to be more fun. |
|2002-02-23||Senor Y.||I was there tonight and about 2/3 of the place is a pool hall. I wish there were more classics, I saw a pac-man and a jr. pac-man in the back (cocktails) they had some 80's games, a lot of NEO-GEO games a few fighting games, a lot of driving games, a lot of shooting games and 1 pinball machine. The place is cool, but I wish there were more classics. A room full of classics may not generate enough money but it should would be fun. :>
|2002-02-05||Chr$||VR is dying. The customers are not coming in anymore. Rick still owns the place, but He's selling some games. If you were a regular as a kid, he will probably still remember you. Go and drop some quarters. |
|2001-11-15||gamer||Wow I didn't know they were still open
I used to go there as a kid all the time. I may have to go there soon|
|2001-01-11||Travis Trussell||This is the best arcade in the valley (and one of the best places too play pool). They also have Collumns and several Neo Geo Cabinets. VR also has the latest Pin Ball games too.|
