|2012-05-22||Mike||I was fortunate enough to be able to purchase a couple of the games back in March after they closed.|

|2010-07-30||'Snotty' Scotty||Christine - yes, the arcade and the old gang is still here! Remember me? As a reminder, I had you on the Pac-Man cocktail table, (irony at its finest, huh?) then rotated you over to the Tempest cabaret? I still have your Donkey Kong 'Pauline' underwear if you want them back. Don't worry, they've been licked clean. Good times, good times...|

The arcade used to have the best pinball game selection in the midwest, but the pinball room is gone. I went there recently and it has slightly less of a selection and less space devoted to games, but times change. Still brings back memories.|
|2009-06-11||Perry||WOW!! My dad used to take me there when I was young around the 80's. I'm 32 now. It was so freaking cool. If I remember well they had the skeet ball tournaments there that had the special 50 point tickets. The Pinball machines in the back and arcades like you would not believe. All of the new ones back then. And also they had pretty cool prizes that you could exchange for the tickets. We left Chicago in 93 and now I am getting out of the military to come back to chi and take my son there for the memories. Also I heard they tore down Sportsmans's Park.|
|2008-10-18||GChav||Yeah its still there, bout to head up there for a couple rounds of pool, possibly a game or 3 of bowling and then to hit up some of the classic arcades like the multiplayer x-men, streetfighter vs. xmen, killer instinct 2. Yesss sirrr.|
|2008-09-14||Christine||OMG!!! I use to come here back in 1982-1983 & LOVED THE SHIT OUT OF THIS PLACE! Met alot of Boyfriends here!!!!!!!!! I moved to the West, so I havent been back since!! Is it still here?|
|2008-06-11||DHC||I've been recently and as far back as 20 or so years.
It used to be one of the best arcades in the Chicago area.
Like pretty much all arcades, it's declined a little since its heyday.
But its also still inarguably one of the elite in the Chicago area and still definitely worth a visit if you're an arcade fan.
Good luck finding any better, unless you're a time traveler.|
|2007-09-12||unimpressed||the place used to be a great spot to go and hang out at,,, this was back in '95 ,,, since then it looks the same and most of the games are the same.. doesnt seem like they have tried to improve the place at all, its kind of dingy.. some if not most of the games are not maintained ie air hockey and skeet ball (< which was pretty horrible, the game panels were peeling off and the other 2 machines were of course "out of order: ) dont recommend it to anyone really, lazer tag was fun, bowling was fun, the arcade is just plain trashy!!!!! |

|2005-02-06||Patrick||Galaxy World in Carol stream IL use to be one of the greatest arcades. They had everything, multiples of the really hot games. Many of the game company's did their test marketing their. I recently went their and it's nothing but redemption and driving games. If you visit their you can still see the wall of el coves where they used to have 20 to 30 well maintained pinball machines.|
|2003-04-04||Paul N.||There's lots of space alright. The ammount of games this place has is really shrinking. I have been going there for almost 20 years (Even when it was known as Gala Lanes...Before the cheapskates at Brunswick took over). They had EVERYTHING! I still go there to play pool. The place is starting to look rundown. I hope Brunswick isn't letting this place go adrift to make it a "legit" tax loss.|
|2002-09-24||Tony P||This is a BIG arcade knows as "Galaxie World". It's only listed as Brunswick Zone (attached to it) because that is what it maps to. This place has a lot of space, many driving games and 5 pins, and lots of vids. Bumper cars too. Prices on games are very reasonable also. I hear this used to be one of the big arcades back in the day.|
