The last several times I was there were just pitiful, its a rathole now and I do not look forward to ever going back. No one seems to care about the place anymore.|
|2013-09-07||classicrommer72||As for other locations, I have seen the one at Chicago Ridge Mall...also fairly sad. There is definitely NOT one in Schaumburg, as one poster speculated.|

|2009-03-12||daniel||this place is trash. worst arcade ever. 90% of games malfunction|
|2008-06-21||DHC||Went back. Asteroids didnít work (no asteroids, just ufos?!?) and Aerosmith Revolution X had a broken gun (middle one). Off-Road played well. 19XX seemed ok, but bored me. Didnít test Galaga, Tetris, or Xmen.
Also has 5-7 pinball machines (mostly 90s I think Ė no classics). Lots of Ďgun gamesí, too. There appears to be a Chicago Ridge Mall location (same name) and 1 other (the clerk thought maybe Schaumberg).
|2008-06-15||DHC||Didn't get to play, but stuck my head in recently, after discovering it on this site.
This is a real rarity - mall arcades used to be a given at any remotely decent full-sized mall. Now, I can't remember the last time I saw a mall arcade before this (excluding the 'couple games in a theater entrance' deals).
The front is mostly kiddie stuff - sitdown racers, redemption games, Dance Dance Revolution - but there's older further back.
Didn't have time to linger, but I handled a couple buttons and sticks quickly, and they felt alright.
Doesn't go in the top tier with places like Galaxy World, Star Worlds, Nickel City, but, by current standards, its a decent medium-sized arcade, and a novelty for its location.|
