This Multicade game is built in a cabinet of a game I never heard of but it has a Ms. Pac-Man panel.

Donut Connection
Waldorf

There is no longer a Ms. Pac Man located at the Donut Connection in Waldorf. Although just south on Leonardtown road at the Waldorf Laundromat there is a Ms. Pac Man/Galaga. A note about the condition is that the display is distorted and the red channel does not work. This is interesting because Ms. Pac Man did not have a bow! And...Inky only shows up as eyes!!-Tom Asaki

Golf & Games
Sterling Heights
Michigan
This is the same place that was in Warren, not Sterling Heights, on Van Dyke near 14 Mile Rd. In its heyday (80s and 90s), I remember as a small kid the variety of games it had, and actually held it as the higher standard for an awesome arcade place. When I decided to check it out in early Fall 2012, just to see how things have changed after being there once in 1997 and then one small time in 2007. Whoa! It looked so shabby, dirty, and poorly maintained; the concrete parking lot was crumbling (you can even see this on Google Maps), the golfing area was overrun with weeds, and I dared to check out the interior of the building. It was still opened, but 2/3 of the games (video games and pinball machines) were all gone and they were all selling the remaining in an "As Is" condition with most being in good-to-fair condition, but clearly taken a beating. The around 20 people who were there (on a weekday afternoon) seemed despondent over the place of whatever nostalgia they could get out of the place, it was a former saddening, dilapidated shell of its place and I walked out of there as quickly as I came in after seeing the place. I understand that times have changed and that arcade games are not as profitable anymore, but the place could have been reinvented similar to Dave and Buster. Oh well, a shame. If any of you do dare to venture there, and if it still exists, the property is being sold off to Menard, brace yourself, even if you have not been there since the late 2000s. The facility should be placed out of its misery because its so bleak and poorly maintained.-An Old Customer

Stopped in while I was in town in Sept. 2012. The place is basically a college bar near ULouisville. Unfortunately none of the games were on during lunch, so it may be the case that they are only turned on at night, or you may have to request if you want to play a particular game.-tagryn

On the lower level, the arcade has Ms. Pacman, Pacman 30th anniversary, Qbert, Paperboy, Punch-Out, Popeye, Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong Jr., and Frogger. The rest of the games mentioned above are now on the designated "birthday section" which is on the second floor. You must have scheduled a birthday party toio play these games, but if you talk to the manager, and say that you would like to "try them out", usually, the manager will turn them on for testing. -Pacgirl

Arcade Odyssey is an amazing destination for anyone into gaming, there is something for everyone. Retro, fighters, shooters, imports, even PINBALL !!! Unlike arcades from a few years back, all the machines work AND they are always rotating in new stuff to keep it exciting. If you are in the South Florida area you have no excuse, you must go and see for yourself! -Jeff G

Boardwalk USA
Colorado Springs

Boardwalk USA did go bankrupt and the games at the Aurora location got auctioned off. The Owner was able to switch out the PCBs and games were sold in the wrong cabinets. The good games went to the springs and made lots of money. I personally bought all the games from the Lakewood Boardwalk USA. I paid 60 dollars a game. There was over 100 games in the basement. The rarest title in the lot was a Dedicated Major Havoc. More info at TheArcadeGameMuseum.org-Lonny Dawson

I think I am going to give up on this arcade. I went there last year on a normal weekday night. Nothing. Then, I went there Friday night of this Thanksgiving weekend, and no one was there. I wish they would just put a closed sign on the door. I guess they could have been out of town for the weekend, but I doubt I will ever have the chance to try again.-Dan

Now, the mall has been torn down and rebuilt as a strip mall. It is a real shame that not only Power Play is gone, so is the mall. So much of my childhood was in those walls...-Sam

Fun World (at Flea World)
Sanford

This place is practically a plethora of classic arcade games, but be warned that some of the games do have their share of problems. For example, the guns in Lethal Enforcers being miscalibrated once in a while, and their Mad Dog McCree machine will usually be out of order, and if there is a chance that it is working, it will end up rebooting (but of course, this is mostly due to the wear and tear from the laserdisc player). on the plus side, it is a must for any arcade fan of the late 80s to early 90s. i usually take the chance to visit it whenever i go on my usual Sega Master System game search @ Flea World.-Steven M.

Ive been going to this place for years to play killer instinct. The selection of rare and classic games is unparalleled. Some of the rarest games on earth call mega play home. If theres something you heard they had but didnt see, ask for john, and if youre REALLY nice, he may just wheel it out for you. When they pulled Killer instinct from the floor due to slow sales, the few dedicated fans raised hell until they promised not to take it away from us again! They have a love for arcades and their regulars that cant be matched. 5 stars-Josh hickman

Arcade Odyssey
Miami
Florida
I paid my first visit to Arcade Odyssey last week and WOW! was I pleasantly surprised. What a cool place to check out. This is the one and only "True" Video Arcade that I know of in South Florida. When I was growing up in Miami there were video arcades all over the place in the late 70s, 80s and into the early 90s from stand alone locations to places in the mall to Pizza Parlors and Laundromats. Then Dave & Busters and Game Works attempted to create a video arcade experience but they really left much to be desired. And places like Boomers... Well, they shut down one building with video games and the other one is full of games with only half of them working. So I really missed the "True" Video Arcade experience and Arcade Odyssey does not disappoint. This is a place that will appeal to everyone from video game purists to little kids to big kids to parents with kids and even those that are just a kid at heart. Now, theres a little bit of something for everyone. You have the classic arcade games for those that grew up playing games like Pacman, Robotron, Burgertime and Joust, and theres the rider simulation games like the Sega Wave Runner, Nascar Car Racing and "Tsumo Ball" which I call the "Red Dome Battleship" artillery game. You have the first person shoot em ups like House of the Dead killing zombies and the like. Then theres the Terminator pinball machines which are a lot of fun to play. And lets not forget the room dedicated to network connected PvP games with rumble seats where fans of Call of Duty can congregate to show off their skills. And of course the ubiquitous Street Fighter series video games. And theres many, many more games to chose from. But what makes this place unique and not just another Video Arcade is the attention to detail and the fact that all of the games are in excellent working condition which is a rarity at most places with video games. Check it out, you wont be disappointed. -Robert S

Going to Terrys is like stepping back in time. The owner still repairs the machines himself, and even builds multicades to sell, as well as pinball machines. Terrys has a good amount of classic cabinets as well as a couple 60-in-1 iCade cabs. The majority of the arcade is late 80s and early 90s cabs. The rest is jam packed with various racing games, shooters, and even a brand new guitar hero arcade. There are also some skiball machines and other ticket games if you feel the urge to cash in on some of the prizes at the counter. Terrys is a great place. Safe, small, and loved.-Austin

There is no logic for this type of amusement to be unheard of anymore. No matter how good your PC or console is. You can never replace the real arcade environment that was made at Boardwalk USA. This was the only real arcade next to the bottom floor of most the malls back in the day ( not that the bottom floor mall arcades were this huge, but they were the real deal. ) The closest thing to Boardwalk USA these days is Dave and Busters, and D&B blows hard compared to Boardwalk USA. Someone rich needs to make another Boardwalk USA franchise within all major cities in the USA. Please put one in Dallas, Tx :) -Wayne

Actually, I think that logic is right, but just doesnt apply to food. Laziness and ease is a factor. The main reason that restaurants still work is because going to them is actually lazier than eating at home. Why cook when you can avoid the time, the act itself, the skill, the shopping, and the clean-up? Why go to an arcade when you can play all the games you want at home and online? Why go to the store when you can shop online? -Andrew

Classic Arcade Obituary...not really, but all they have left of anything that seems remotely classic is the Ms Pac-man/Galaga combo. There are a couple of 90s plus shooters left. They seemed to have made room for a huge two or three lane mini bowling monstrosity that no one was using. On a bright note, the machines that are left are using tokens and quarters instead of that awful credit key system. Man, the new classics they had before were awesome; such a waste. I still think arcade owners don't get it. Even if a classic machine doesn't make any real money, it is a prop, a draw that inspires parents to bring their kids. Even if the parent doesn't play the classic that much, it makes them feel good to bring their family to a REAL arcade they can relate to. -Dan

I now have the PCB's to D.D. Crew, and Violent Storm. It also appears that I miscounted the amount of arcade boards I have, as I think this now puts me at 95 total games (as I thought I had more than that). I'm pretty sure this is right, but I'll obviously list any other games I have that I may have missed, and try to figure out just exactly how many arcade boards I now own.-Joe

Mall Of America Arcades
Bloomington

Avoid this arcade. The MOA used to have a pretty nice arcade on the top floor but that was shut down many years ago. Now, they have an arcade in the Nickelodeon World that is split into 2 sections. From what I remember there is very little to no "classic" arcade games. It's all light gun, racing and ticket games. The only game there that I remember being worth playing was Tekken 5. Huge disappointment. They would make so much money if they had an arcade that actually had real arcade fans in mind. Of all places the MOA in particular should have a REAL arcade.-Curt

Went there before the end of 2009 (before xmas) and Missile Command had a couple of free credits in it! I don't have an exact listing of what they did/didn't have, but, I will say they have more classics (about 8-10) here than most any other Gameworks locations (around 4 or 5) I've seen.-Rifter

Went here before the end of 2009 (before xmas), I didn't see many classics (except maybe a few noted here).. Of my observation at this time it was true some/half of the games do not work (esp. ticket/redemption games like skee-ball and the ones where you shoot the token through the spinning wheel - wheel'em'in or smoking token).. One thing to possibly keep in mind is they say they're arcade/medieval area is open late (until 10pm or so), well, we were playing and yet still ushered out by hotel security around before 10pm, (it was around 9:20-9:30) without any explanation. We did return the next day, and a couple of the games were repaired, yet, some others not.-Rifter

I was there on Christmas Eve 2009. Awesome time. Almost every game was working. This place deserves major credit for keeping the arcade open! It's definitely worth the trip. Playing the real dedicated machines is much better than playing multicade versions of the classics (better action on the joysticks, analog sound, etc.) The proprietors were very friendly. Customers were friendly too. Yes its a working class kind of place but that's a good thing. I don't know where some of these mean spirited comments are coming from. I highly recommend making the effort to get there. I know I'll be back! -Drunky Kong

I regularly read (have bookmarked) the most recent comments here on Arcade Locations and I just found something you may find interesting: First of all The Corvette Diner in San Diego CA may be getting a Gilligan's Pinball machine. We have a bar here in Tampa called Gilligan's which has a Gilligan's Island theme, and I was thinking it would be nice if I could find a Gilligan's Island Pinball machine for cheap, so I could talk them into buying it. There is an expensive pin on eBay being sold by thepinballstore.ecrater.com. I checked to see where they were located on their "about us" link. There they stated "We are a "Brick & Mortar" business located in Connecticut" Anyway, I guess the eCrater Pinball Store must be sore at Game Gallery for competing without a showroom (or an actual gallery) to maintain.-Dan

They probably had the following comment on their Facebook page for some time, but I just noticed it: "no need for the overhead of a brick and mortar showroom anymore." Here is the sentence in context: "We offer a large variety of new and refurbished arcade machines. Our staff is experienced to assist you from the point of sale, to shipping, parts and technical service. 95% of our sales are done online and no need for the overhead of a brick and mortar showroom anymore. By doing this we can pass the savings on to our customers. Sales lines are open Mon-Fri 10-5 and you can reach us 24/7 online and place your orders. Game Gallery Amusements and Rentals takes great pride in knowing that you, as a game enthusiast, are looking for the highest quality and the best that money can buy." It is a shame that it costs so much to maintain a showroom here in Tampa. Maybe they could get a nice big plot of easily accessible low-tax land out in Pasco with a big beautiful warehouse made to look like a classic arcade. Light the whole thing with solar panels, wind energy and LEDs and the electricity would hardly cost a thing. Man, I so badly want to go to a thriving classic arcade showroom / gameroom. Might as well want to go to a thriving covered wagon factory I guess. I bet if they pimped out those classic cabinets with LEDs and OLED monitors (soonest OLED availability is 2011) they could afford to have a showroom. Best of luck to them regardless.-Dan

Rolling Thunder is no longer at this arcade. Ghouls 'n Ghosts is in the back (cocktail) and you have to ask the owner to turn it on. They have a fast Ms. Pac-Man and a regular-speed Ms. Pac-Man. The regular one is on a stand-up machine with lots of other games but is difficult to play since there is a lot of free play in the joystick when compared to an original machine. Owner is very nice. Metered parking or find free spaces on side streets.-Stephanie

Went bowling there recently. I must say that all the machines looked very clean and well maintained. It also looked like there were many more arcade games there than the last time I went. The classic Ultracade with Joust and Qix, etc. was working well in front of the lanes, No one was rude, although it appears to be a cash-only establishment, which isn't rude, just inconvenient. Since again it was a non-crowded Saturday night, I must assume that someone who takes care of the machines won the lottery or received an arcade endowment. Maybe they just now have a very conscientious arcade repair specialist. Again, was very impressed with the quality of the machines. Now all they need is to drum up a bigger crowd. Oh, and although I do like the retro smell of tobacco smoke, it was rather sad to see a young mother and father smoking and bowling with their toddlers so close by them.-Dan

The worker stated the policy was minimum of 7 days prior to party date. SO..this manager refused a $175 reservation because we called 5 days instead of 7 days. Makes little sense to refuse $175 for 5 day advance notice or get $0 and have an empty party room... Maybe Monkey Joe's doesn"t have such a strict policy.-William Autry

Seeing the things I saw happen there gave me the opportunity to see deeper into who they really where, I won't say anything else because I don't want this to turn in to a bashing session again, my old post make me sound like a jerk but I'm not, I was angry but I have started to let that go and grow up a bunch(It was hard to forget all the stess I went through working for David),but It also felt good to get all that off my chest.

I have been vacationing at lake winnipesaukee and goin to the weirs arcade since i was a baby.This year the old guy at the weirs pier arcade screamed at me for winning a extra measly 108 tickets because his machine was not working correctly and was giving me extra tix every time i won.If he had came over and explained to me nicely i would have given him back those 108 tix but he came over screamed and yelled and told me to go across the street and clean them out of tickets.My family has spent alot of money in the 20 plus years going to weirs beach.The poor and innappropriate treatment by this man has prompted me for the first time in over 25 years to vacation somewhere else.So now next year my 550 or so dollars will be spent in maine and not new hampshire.I will so miss the kellerhaus and sleeping santa .But I tell all of you.I was being watched and so was anyone else who won tickets in that place.I urge everyone to stay away from the pier arcade and if you do go in there look for the people that watch you.you will see them.beware beware beware.oh and by the way mama rossis italian restaraunt is awesome.best italian in the area.-kdiz

Great, great place. I was dumbfounded by all the fighting games they had - Super SF 2 Turbo, Street Fighter 3, Marvel vs. Capcom 2, Street Fighter EX 2/3 (forgot) and Tekken 5. Great choice of games to choose from and really, how can you not love the cost? Just cost me 4 nickels to play SF 3 instead of 4 quarters . Very nice. -GaryBusey

I put this location & list up on this website back in 1999. I am happy to say that this Arcade is still going strong today (2009).I puchased most of the "classic" arcades though, including: Ms. Pacman, Galaga, Centipede, Donkey Kong (2 of them), Donkey Kong jr., Defender, Crazy Climber, Space Invaders, Mr. Do, Q*bert, Tron, Dragon's Lair, Frogger, and a BurgerTime. The arcade is still there but with mostly newer games from the 1990's and now left. -Braido

My wife and I go here every weekend. It was fun for a while, but it's to the point where I doubt we'll return. The Skee-ball machines (8 of them) used to be what we went there for, but now only one of the eight actually work. Talked to the guys there, but they aren't interested in fixing them, they said it was too hard to do. Only place in town that we've found that have the old school Skee-ball lanes, not the new short lanes.-Daytona Resident

I am also disgusted by the fact that there is a pitiful looking black bear in a cage on a concrete slab...with little else. The owner should allow an animal sanctuary to take it and let the poor thing live out it's life in a more natural environment and have some sense of freedom and normalcy. I think it is selfish and greedy to try to earn a few extra quarters by allowing people to "feed" this pathetic creature with some type of kibble. I hope people will agree and boycott this place until the owner does the right thing for these animals.-Amy

I just have to say, my wife and I stumbled upon this arcade for the first time last year and we were overjoyed to be able to play the old coin-ops that we used to play as children. It brought back a flood of memories and just by standing there, looking around, we were able to imagine that we were back in our beloved '80s. This arcade is the main reason we'll be going to Seaside this summer. Thanks, Joe!-Victor H. Marsillo

Disney's Quest, located in Downtown Disney across from the House of Blues, is essentially the latest in computerized entertainment. It costs $40 dollars to get in for all day entertainment. they are open from 10-10 on sun & weekdays, and 10-11 on fri, sat. Quest is worth seeing even if your are not going to play the classics. They have as of June 10, 2009: donkey kong, dk jr, mario brothers, a dk/dk jr/mb combo, ms pacman/galaga combos, moonpatrol, make trax, arkanoids, Robotron 2084, lunar lander, galaxian, 2 multicades, Q*bert, frogger, tron, super pacman, pacman, spy hunter, asteriods. Most games are playable. Some games have monitor problems but playable. Only Robotron was unplayable, the N and NW directions shooting didn't work. The games are located on the retro floor with a huge Buzzlight year "bumper cars" room, if you don't mind all the "to infinity and beyond" calls in the back ground you'll be fine ... lol. P.S. all you DK fans can get to the kill screen on the DK/DK jr/MB combo machine, it has a continue feature. I did it in less than 2 hours. Got third place with a 896,500 beating billy mitchell's 1982 DK score of 874200, with unlimited men :p ... I'll do it one day with four jumpmen :) --RBF-Rob, the classic arcade hunter

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.-Perry

I must agree the Jim Mack's is a small, cute, quaint mini golf area and eatery. The food happens to be great and the ice cream is as well. However, I am appaled at the fact that there is a black bear in captivity located amongst the grounds. Bears belong in the wild. If the bear has some time of medical problem, etc. that would prove it unable to live in the wild, then it should be in a wildlife rehabilitation center for care and a normal life that all wildlife deserves. The bear should not be locked up in a fence cage about the size of my bedroom with a tub of water, a few toys, and a few slots for food to be dropped in by cooing kids that believe it is alright that wild animals are kept in captivity. -Bri

They advertise a 'retro arcade' on their website, but that has been converted to a party room. They have 5 classic game cabinets, and more than 1 game can be played on each machine. So, these 10 games are found on 5 machines. Two of the machines are in the party room, the other three are in the back corner of the main arcade. All of the machines were in good working order. Everything still looks pretty much like it did in Karate Kid, except all the games are bigger and more modern.-Rocky Smashmore

Taco Via (95th & Antioch)
Overland Park
Kansas
I've been a hard core Taco Via aficionado since I was a child. At one time they had at least 6 or 7 locations that I knew of.The one located at 95th & Antioch had it's beginnings at 75th & Metcalf. That store was bought out and razed to the ground to make way for the new grocery store and KFC there now in the early 90's. That must be the same time frame that the franchise changed hands, because a new Taco Via was opened across the street from that site. But the menu had changed drastically! The meat had changed in flavor and texture, burritos and sanchos were half the size, and really strange, new items were added on to the menu. Every other Taco Via I visited after wards had suffered the same fate. Then I found the 95th St restaurant, and there were the old crew from 75th ST! And the food was the same as I remembered from the old store. It's the last one in existence that I know of. I agree with others that the sauce is wonderful! And their onion sauce that they use on the burritos and enchiladas is fantastic. I, too, wish that they would sell both of these items.-VALKURY

I just recently went to this arcade they have a lot great games some you rarely see anymore like the simpsons arcade game the teenage mutant ninja turtles game killer instinct street fighter 2 hyper fighting xmen versus street fighter they got rid of the ms. pacman with the fast pac button they have an arknoid machine way better than breakout i am suprised that they did not have missle comand anymore you would think they have the centipede millipede missle command lets go bowling machine I wish they had a tetris machine and tempest machine they did not have that new games but there were games they did not have that eye expected to see because most arcades have these games Ghost Squad House of The Dead 4 Alien The new Nascar game and mario kart They need to get a twilight zone pinball There are 2 neo geos they need to put new games in it. In the first on near the door they should have puzzle bobble spinmasters the metal slug x and king of fighters 2003 In the second one in the back they should have the latest samauri showdown super sidekicks 3 League bowling and Twinkle Star Sprites They have two or more of some games they need to put the alike games togeteher like all the Ms.pacman and pacmans together all the fighting games together all the racing together all the gun games together all the ticket games together the need to get In the Groove 2 it is just like DDR but better they need to get the fast trac air hockey-Chase

I have one more thing to say that on the teenage mutant ninja turtles game you can only be two of the turtles dontello and i forget the other because it is a two player machine and only has two coin slots the same is with the simpsons machine if you want to be able to play all the simpsons characters go to the jungle golf place right behind flippers they are owned by the same people and have the four player simpsons game the prices are reasonable as well-Chase

Mega Play
Mishawaka
Indiana
Mega Play is a ten-hour drive (one way) from my home, but I decided to visit it this week over my Spring Break. I was greatly disappointed to find that MANY of the games listed here are no longer at Mega Play. As of 3/26/09, I can only report seeing Jr. Pac-Man, Wonderboy, Paper Boy, 1943, Track & Field, Galaga 3, Return of the Jedi, Tron, Karate Champ, Centipede, and Spider Man from the list above. Strangely, though, many of the missing titles appear as placards on the wall as if to say, "Hey, we had these at one point." It's a pretty impressive room -- I was excited to see Killer Instinct, Mortal Kombat 1-4, and NBA Jam there -- but I thought I'd warn anybody else crazy enough to drive across the country thinking Mega Play had the most conclusive arcade collection around.-Kev

Tampa Lanes
Tampa
Florida
I live a short distance away from this bowling arcade. For once in my life, I feel fortunate to even see a bunch of arcade games with their attract modes on, let alone have them working. I can walk into this mostly empty arcade on a Friday or Saturday night and close my eyes, pretending that I hear all the classics from our past. One thing I like about this place that others don't is that it is legal to smoke. I don't smoke, but the smell of stale smoke adds to the wonderful retro ambiance of the arcade. There just isn't any money in this slowly recovering economy for this place to fix these machines. There really would be no passive interest in these machines by "age-appropriate" players even if they did work. If they could hold on to these machines, even turning many off to save electricity until the recession is over, they could then repair them all and follow up the repairs with an advertising campaign like the successful Treasure Island arcade TV ads that have been running here in Tampa Bay for the last several years. Demand for arcades is created; it doesn't just appear out of nowhere. They also need to have a redemption system to make more money from the arcade. That being said, (1) before this recession is over, this is an employer's market. You can hire friendly helpful employees for bargain rates now. Each and every one can be trained to repair machines, if they don't already have low cost technical skills. Call each and every employee a bowling mechanic slash arcade repair specialist, so even when they are handing out shoes or serving pizza, they know what is important. There is no reason for any employer to have rude employees in this current economy, not with so many talented technical and pleasant people out of work. (2) During a recession, people often seek escapism, so if you actually have any credit or money to invest, you can consider starting the strategy mentioned above before the recession is over and tap into the spirit of escapism created by hard times. The owner of Tampa Lanes, Inc. is named Joe Hanson. He has kept this place open for many years through many bad times. It seems like magic that he can have so many arcade machines turned on with so little game or lane maintenance, so if his strategy is working for keeping the place open, then power to him. It's his place. He can run it any way he wants, I guess. I just wish the rest of Tampa knew he has one of the biggest arcades in Tampa, so he could get more traffic and afford to fix the machines and maintain the lanes. Are his rude employees his family? Is he rude? I really wouldn't know.-Dan

90% of the game are broken one way or the other. Games are very old and not in a classy kind of way. They havent gotten anything new in years!!! If a game is broken they wont give you a refund. They have games that are continuesly "on" yet the screen is completly shot. They have broken games operating for months at a time. The person that is supposed to fix the games doesent do anything to fix them. Even when you tell him something is wrong with the game his attitude is of one whom doesent care. I believe his name is Mark.-Jacobo Aluicious.

Nickel Nickel
Huntington Beach
California
God, all im reading are pretty much insults to Nickel Nickel. If you don't like the place then don't go in the first place. And personally I think Nickel Nickel Rocks because they have DDR and I think that the arcade version is way better then the at home version (which I have). You only gotta pay 40 cents rather than a buck at normal arcades. Nickel Nickel is a cheap arcade to go to and you can pass some time and have fun. I go there and buy a five dollar bag of nickels and im there for two hours where as in normal arcades five dollars will get you maybe a half an hour if you choose your games wisely. So I recommend this place to anyone who only has a couple bucks on them and wants to have fun plus they have been putting some new games in recently so go and have some FUN.-Bri

I was in last year before they shut down for the winter, and spoke to an employee there. He said they were closing for the winter months, and then opening up again in the spring. The owner, Conrad, is reluctant to give the place up, but he recognizes that the arcade industry is dying. So to keep the place open, I'm told the plan is to rent out half the building to another business and keep half of it open as a game room. And I was also told there would be an auction for the games that they weren't keeping - I left my email address so I could be notified when the auction would be held, but I haven't seen anything come from them yet.-FiniteInfinity8

Minneapolis International Airport
Minneapolis
Minnesota
In either the H terminal or the L terminal, there's an arcade called Lucky Lindy's. This was added sometime between 2004 and 2008, I'm not sure exactly when because it had been that long between times I was last at the airport. From the airport upstairs, just keep going forward a few yards, and you will find it on your left. Like the rest of the arcades, this one has a Ms. Pac-Man/Galaga Class of '81 machine, but it also has an oversized 1942 machine that was obviously converted from a different machine. The joystick wasn't completely responsive and the sound didn't work, but it was still fun to play, as I'd not seen 1942 in an arcade in almost 20 years.-Mike Waters

HUGE new arcade opening in Brandon Mall, but first, the Brandon showroom, Apollo Amusements just had a clearance auction yesterday. They are closing their Sarasota showroom, where part of King of Kong was filmed. They are moving their remaining arcade machines to Tampa (Brandon). I hope they will expand their showroom. Also, again, there is a HUGE arcade opening soon called TILT at the Brandon Mall. Hopefully Apollo Amusements will develop a thriving symbiotic relationship with TILT! (From Wikipedia: Tilt, also known as Tilt Family Entertainment Center is a chain of video arcades inside various shopping malls. Tilt is owned by Nickels and Dimes Incorporated located in Carrollton, Texas. There are numerous Tilt stores spread across the United States from California to New York. The first Tilt! game room was in Six Flags Mall in 1972. It was founded by Craig Singer)-Dan

I really miss this place. Sure, it was dark and nasty to look at, but it had the most unbelieveable collection of games I've ever seen. Classic arcade right up to the dollar eating machines. The place was always good place to play - blacked out windows for a dark interior and lots of choices for games. However, it was a crime ridden hell hole. I started going just after I became a cop in L.A. and I never, ever, went into that place without my gun and a few spare magazines. Never saw the prostitution going on, but did see some drug deals here and there and lots of gang activity. -JonMSable

Went by the Richardson Purdy's on 02/11/09 about 6pm. I have been to Addison location several times and was excited to have a Purdy's burger. We noticed that parking lot had three cars, thought it was odd. Upon walking in the door, a stench of filth or backup sewer hit us. There were 3 people at counter, sitting and laughing. Nobody acknowledged us or said a word. We were baffled more by there being only ONE lady in the dining room. There was however, 6 dirty tables - most with most of food left over. It just smelled bad, looked bad and gave the impression that they didnt care. The girls behind the counter continued to sit, again never moving or saying hello. We walked out as it just seemed nobody there was concerned for cleanliness or quality. -Caroline S.

Please keep truckin', and God please bless these owners so they can re-open their showroom.

Nickel World
Rockford
Illinois
Nickel World is very similar to Nickel City (Northbrook). It’s a small independent place in business strip. It has lots of kiddie/redemption-style games, some gun and driving games, one pinball (Judge Dredd), a DDR (Dance Dance Revolution SuperNova), and classics in the back. NW has side rooms for kid parties, although they don’t sell much food themselves (popcorn, inexpensive pop, and ice cream). Again, like Nickel City, there’s an entrance fee ($2.25). However, since all the classics are free play, and everything else runs on 1-4 nickels, the cover is well worth it for even a modest length visit. There’ve been some changes in the games and more oldies than currently listed – I’m submitting them all. Their condition is reasonable. -DHC

I had the pleasure of visiting this arcade this past Friday, 1/02/'09. Although a couple of machines listed here were gone (Galaga being one), they will be replaced, as the selling and restoration of machines is part of Richie's business. Because I am a semi-competative gamer, I have to ocndition myself when visiting a place like this to play games for fun or practice on new games, instead of just concentrating on games that I'm good at; after all, it is a $10 charge for four hours and all the games are on free play. A few minor issues with one or two of the machines that can be fixed. A major issue is the screen display on Star Wars, which will not be an easy fix. But all in all, this is definitely worth the trip for a Friday evening. Very friendly place.-Richard M.

I just had to leave my on-the-market house for a showing, so I went over to Crab Towne USA (a couple miles away) with a few quarters. I am happy to report that Gorf, Karate Champ, and Punch-Out all worked fine (although I wish I had something to blame my loss to Piston Hurricane on). The controls for Kung-Fu Master were a little unresponsive, but it was still fun. -Rob

I was thinking about this place yesterday. I drive by it regularly looking for some change. The front has a dark black window film. Behind that are large AC ducts laying near the front with a general look of renovation and disorder. It's been like this for so very long. As someone who is fascinated by classic arcade machines I find it odd that shortly after introducing reasonably priced arcade cabinets (which I loved to see in stores), both Target and Sears pulled them like they were the plague. You'd have thought that their presence on the showroom floor even reduced the sale of all their other games and game room gear the way they disappeared so fast. Why don't people want these wonderful reminders of good times gone by? Is there really something that morbid about playing games that seems so simple compared to what we have now? Or, is there a conspiracy by the multi-billion dollar gaming industry to kill the sales of classic arcade nostalgia like there was/is to kill the electric car? Just wondering. In these hard financial times, some people will actually spend more to escape reality to simpler better days, but you wouldn't know it by the way cheap arcade machines disappear (apparently not from purchases) from big store floors.-Dan

I drove here all the way from Huntsville, AL with four of my friends. We each picked a few games to concentrate on and spent most of the day on those machines. I spent about four hours on Asteroids Deluxe, and two hours on Missile Command. The selection of games is fantastic. Too many to list here, and they're still getting more! A few are in need of repair, but there are so many machines here that it's not a problem. This is a great value at $6 for the whole day. A nice Pub-Restaurant is just a couple of blocks away, along with The Roxy Theatre and the Beachaven Winery.-Jeff Bennett

Gameland

I used to work at Gameland, and it's definitely gone downhill over the years. I can tell you from firsthand experience that we tried to fix every single machine in that place in my time there (10 years ago - I apprenticed under the technician) but the owner just wasn't interested in keeping it in top shape. And that was back when it did a large amount of business all the time and the snack bar sold fudge like crazy. Now the snack bar is closed, and I don't think the place even has a technician anymore. I can't really say I blame them - the day of the arcade room is over. It was good while it lasted, and Gameland and many other arcade rooms gave us all some very good memories (and took huge amounts of our money from us),now that home systems are more powerful than the cabinet units the new generation of kids has lost all interest in putting quarters into those machines. It'll be sad to see it go, but I can't say the place hasn't had it coming for a long time. If it had an owner that cared, it might hang on for a little while longer, but he was only interested in spending the smallest amount of money possible while trying in vain to keep people interested in his barely-working machines. So long, Gameland, and thanks for all the good times. A piece of my childhood leaves with you. I was just in there last weekend (10/18/08), and it's still open, by the way. I don't know how much longer it'll stick around, but if you want to try to get in there and find out about making an offer on any of the games, you better hurry.-FiniteInfinity8

Visited Funspot 10-7-08. I was surprised how many new games they have added since my trip in the Spring or early summer. At least 20. The room they normally have the indoor video golf was instead full of classic machines. I'm told golf will return for the winter soon, and several machines will be put back in storage. So visit soon. New machines included a red Computer Space (non-working but I was told it was working earlier in the summer), Sega Subroc 3D, Juno, Lock & Chase, Buck Rogers cockpit (non-working), Night Driver cockpit(non-working)and others. I noticed new pinball machines, and 3 EM games. As always, I was amazed at the excellent condition of most of the machines, especially the latest new classics. Some pinball machines were out of order, but they have a lot and have clearly been very busy fixing all these new additions. Great job Funspot!-Nate Goulet

Playland also had the most forgiving oldies machines like dime baseball and the old "rollover numbers" pinball machines...the kind that made a sound like a gun shot when you lit it up for a special. You could really work those machines alot without a tilt. Then there were two ice cream shops; the Milky Way next door (for soft) and an Old Fashioned Place across the street (for hard). Up 35, two blocks on the left was Brown's soda shop. They had Flash (an early multi-baller) before anyone else. Man oh man...can't you just smell the Coppertone?-OBSC 1 alum

Here is the WFTV article,this is what the owners are trying very hard to downplay! SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. -- An intersection expansion at S.R. 436 and Red Bug Lake Road in Seminole County will mean less traffic, but at least 17 homes and four businesses will be forced out. Tuesday evening, more than 100 residents got a chance to look at the expansion plans that include a left turn flyover from S.R. 436 to Red Bug Lake and extra lanes. For some residents, it was a first look at their neighborhood with their homes replaced by a road and retention pond. "It's kind of sad, you know, after you've been so many years living in a place and you've had to invest all your money and your effort with your family. It's kind of hard," said homeowner Manny Mendoza. Will Collier will also lose his home. "Supposedly they will take them, pay for our homes and take good care of us, so we'll see," he said. Seventeen homes along Red Bug Lake Road, along with Comfort Furniture, a Mobil gas station, an office building and the popular Rocky's Replay Arcade will all be forced out because of eminent domain laws. "One of our clients has been in their house for 18 years, with five children, all their grandkids and to have them locate at the age of 65, whatever compensation can be obtained through this process is never going to be enough to replace that," said Prineet Sharma, an attorney for the homeowners. County officials said road expansion is never easy, but it's needed at the notoriously busy intersection. Seminole County engineers said they expect to finish the design phase in the spring of 2008. Then they'll spend two years acquiring the necessary properties. They plan to start construction in the summer of 2010. And by the way there will be nothing to buy!!except a pond! LOL -zombie

Hi, I saw your massive list of PCB's you listed here, and was just wondering if you might be able to help me with a problem I am having with my PCB of the Simpsons (which I see you have as well). Do you know if there is any way to get this board set to free play? At the moment I seem to have to have a seperate wired credit for each player to be able to play the different charaters (i.e. standard credit only gives you Marge, and need to hit a different button to get player 3 say, to give you Bart), and I can't really be bothered trying to re-wire my loom to put the credit buttons on.... so yeah, was just wondering if you had ever found out how to set it at free play? I have scoured the net and can't find out how to do it... No worries if you don't know. Thanks!-Pal-O

The Game Gallery

For all intents and purposes, the showroom itself is closed. The company's websites are still active. I'm hoping the showroom will one day be renovated, but there is no apparent activity in there now. The building is actually being offered up for lease on the internet (http://www.agreatertown.com/tampa_fl/7941_n_armenia_ave_00040138). The 7853 Gunn Hwy. #390 (PMB 390) "address" is actually a UPS mailbox. Brenda and Andrew Kline who own the Game Gallery also own A.S.K. Distributors, which still owns the building on Armenia. I guess they have given up on the Armenia location for now. Here is what I would have done (my humble opinion) had I been the owner (God knows I have no idea what they have tried over the years or what is going on in their lives, so please forgive me in the fog I plan in). I would have reconsidered my customer. At one time the customer was the medium-income to wealthy home game room owner or restaurant/tavern owner. We can rule out the commercial game room owner as a profitable customer due to the current deadness of that market. Who could the market be in this recession? How about the average person who spent many a happy day escaping harsh reality in the ambiance of the arcade. This person cannot afford a full sized cabinet, nor does he or she really have any place to put it, especially if it only plays a few games. What could you offer this average customer? Well, how about nik-naks? I mean, can you imagine how many small arcade items one could come up for sale to the average buyer? There are thousands of items you could offer in a game room gallery. Just imagine how many thousands of penny-on-the-dollar Japanese star studded flashing pieces of arcade memorabilia and souvenirs you could sell in a beautiful black light classic arcade replica. You would now obviously have to advertise. You might have to adjust your hours to accommodate your new customers. You would still keep a handful of classic arcade machines on the premises for sale and for limited free play usage. The key to keeping people coming in would be to keep everything fresh and bright and cheerful. I know that part of town is getting bad, but the average person re-living their wonder years would not care. And, with your good reputation and years of institutional knowledge you would have contacts with all the major franchises, Namco Bandai, Taito, Atari and any other familiar names you could license or purchase from. You might even create your own new Pac-man, Frogger, Pole Position, Burger Time or Tetris, etc. ornaments for local and internet distribution. Just a thought. It is my dream to do this all myself one day.-Dan

It is a shame that this arcade ended up being a place for crime and other illegal activity. When I lived in Temple City in the mid 80s, this place was a real treat to go to. A lot of games and there was no criminal element around. When my brother got his first car, he would take me over there (I was 13 or 14) and we would have lots of fun playing Double Dribble. The Pak Mann Arcade wasn't always the crime spot it ended up being. It did have its heyday way back when.-Don

Playboy Mansion

I know this is off topic, but I spent many hours trying to identify the Silver Spoons arcade mansion featured in the show's intro, and I did! I even found a floor plan for the building, which of course doesn't match the floor plan of the Silver Spoon's set; but just image how great it would be, if one had unlimited resources, to build a replica of the Silver Spoons mansion, and then marry the set's floor plan to that of the mansion's floor plan. That would be ultimate arcade mansion. Of course, having a bunch of Playboy Bunnies running around would enhance the experience. (: Anyway, the establishing shot of the show is absolutely the Compton Winyates in Warwickshire England. Now, to meticulously draw out the set's floor plan by rewatching the DVDs. That will be a bunch of hard work!-John

Their classic game section is pretty good. Robotron works great. Donkey Kong stick is still broken/annoying but they have a multi-game machine right outside "classic corner" that has like 24 games and Donkey Kong 1 2 and 3 are all in there and the machine worked great. Pinball was great but LOTR machine stole my tokens.-Chris

Hey Paul, that is great logic you have there. It is like blaming McDonald's customers for why they got gigged for several health code violations. It is like blaming a pedestrian that got ran over by a Domino's Delivery vehicle for "getting in the way at that crosswalk" and causing trouble. Gameland has a poor business model and it is failing. It is losing money, the games are in bad shape, etc. It is nobody's fault but the managers and operators of that establishment. They can't even keep up the maintenance on their faded, and very out-dated sign. You know, I wouldn't even bash the sign if it had a retro-appeal. It doesn't. It looks cheesy.-Anti-Paul

The only mini-golf in Castro Valley is "Golden T", and I assume it used to be the Golfland listed here. When I moved to CV 5 years ago, they had lots of video games & pinball. 2 years ago, they were down to a "multi-cade" machine with lots of great old games, but I just went there (July 28, 2008) and all that's left is a Ms Pacman/Galaga machine which has been modified to be super easy for kids. A shame.-Zaius

Gameland is gem! I can't remember the last time I've been in an arcade with about 100 machines, that had so many wonderful classics. Yes, there are new games there, too, to try to attract some kids, but so many original dedicated games like track and field, paperboy, championship sprint, rampage and tron. It was great! And the best public collection of cabarets I've seen with robotron, centepede, and my personal favorite, world series. Yes it's true that some games were not working, and some had glitches, like the extra base button on world series didn't work, but it was still wonderful! Please come spend some money here and help keep them open!-h

I got more of the story about their opening status from the niece of the owner. She said her uncle loses money every year, and he's been dangerously ill, but he's now getting better and refuses to close it. I told her that we loved it and had driven up from Chicago just to play and she thanked us and gave me a handful of tokens. So, I completely understand that it's so hard to keep that many old machines working. I wish I could round up 10 collectors/repair guys that would donate a day of time and we'd show up and fix everything we could for a day. They probably can't afford the help and these old arcades are very hard to find these days.-h

Noah's Ark has 3-4 arcades and they have a variety of games from skeeball to pop a shot to drivers, but it's all geared toward little kids. No classics anywhere!

They have a game room with about 5 machines. One was a taxicab driving game that I've never seen and it looked lame. The other 4 were also forgettable.

Checked this place out this weekend. Nice set up. Not as many kids as I was lead to believe and I was there on a Saturday evening (around 5:30-6:00pm). Donkey Kong wasn't working (quarters jamming) and a Centipede system had a bad trackball. But Multicade, Ms. Pacman, and another Centipede/Missile Command systems were working fine. Note that Ms. Pacman is overclocked and running faster. Not the default setting but fun none the less. They also seem to have a decent collection of newer titles such as some shooting games, DDR, adn even some pinball thrown in. Definitely a good location to check out. For basic direction, in St. Pete head West down Park Blvd, right on Seminole, it;s about 1/4-1/2 mile on the left side. Stand alone complex.-Scott D

Well, I finally had the chance to check this place out over the past weekend. There are tons of classic games there which are currently not yet listed here. I sent the owner of this site an updated list, so hopefully he'll get around to posting it soon. As for the quality of the arcade, it's actually quite good. Not in the same league as Funspot (then again, what arcade is?), but it's a good way to kill a couple hours. Most of the classics work perfectly, but there are a few problems. First, the DK Junior has a monitor that's so screwed up I didn't dare try it. The same applies to Phoenix. Secondly, some games like Vs. Super Mario Bros. were shut off. Lastly, the Operation Thunderbolt had no picture, but the sound was still working! Otherwise, this arcade is just fine. It should also be mentioned that some games have multiples, like Ms. Pac-Man, Galaga, Q*Bert, Tetris, Centipede, and Vs. Super Mario Bros.-Zach

Very nice place. It's tucked inconspicuously into a strip mall. They have lots of newer driving and 'dancing' games and the kiddie redemption games in front. Older games are towards the back. There's a large seating area in back for parties and a small, but well-stocked concession stand (pizzas, drinks, etc). Looks like they've spent some money making the eating areas nicer-looking. Admission is $2 at all times, but that absolutely shouldn't be a deterrent. There're plenty of good games to play - the older ones are all free (so 8 games on those pay for your visit) and the newer ones operate on 1-4 nickels per play (5-20 cents), which is also very cheap. It's got a good collection of games and their condition was really good. Ms Pac-Man had a kind of washed out screen (but still completely playable), some of the WWF WrestleFest controllers didn't work (but it's free, so you don't lose any money finding out which ones you ought to use - you just can't go 4-way), and Pac-Man was temporarily down. Otherwise, everything I tried was great (and I tested almost all the free ones, just to see). Overall, a lot of the video games are from the 90s, somewhat past the 'classic era', but still enjoyable for old timers. This was a very encouraging visit, in that Nickel City appears to have gotten a lot better than when it was Super Just Games (under different ownership) and also improved since my other visit about 1yr ago. It looks like they’ve got a healthy business model of getting parents with kids or groups of kids in like a Chuck E Cheese would, but having actual video games, instead of just the redemption stuff. -DHC

They have Initial D, Maximum Tune 2, DDR Extreme, and ITG. I know sounds awesome, if only they worked. Initial D's left side has messed a steering wheel and speakers, and the card readers don't work. The Maximum Tune machine does not have cards either. Both the DDR and ITG pads are in very terrible condition, and the ITG machine doesn't even have bars. If that wasn't bad enough, the majority of the employees have a very bad attitude. Not worth the trouble coming here.-Anonymous

Went back. Asteroids didn’t 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. Didn’t test Galaga, Tetris, or Xmen. Also has 5-7 pinball machines (mostly 90s I think – no classics). Lots of ‘gun games’, too. There appears to be a Chicago Ridge Mall location (same name) and 1 other (the clerk thought maybe Schaumberg). -DHC

Damn, this place is great! On my 2nd visit, the condition of the games seemed much better than last summer. Double Dragons had bad buttons and the monitor on Turbo was too burned out. But the rest were all good (even Tron was *flawless* - I think it's been at least 15 yrs since I've played on decent Tron controls!). They also have some excellent classic pinball (Pin*Bot was awesome, had Black Knight, High Speed was out of order, unfortunately). No charge to get in. Do seem to keep odd hours, though - I went back to my car to get a camera for posterity, and found they were closed when I returned (at 8pm on a beautiful summer Friday night!?!) - so you may want to call ahead or check for a web site. I really hope someone takes it over, or at least most of the machines are bought by one major location.-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.-DHC

I knew this day was coming. The arcade was a dump and a shell of its former self. I will miss it for only the fact that there are no real "arcades" left around here. Dan, if you wanted to "save" this arcade you would have to pay some serious bucks for that building (if they are selling). Hell, they probably already sold it... A skate rink in Kenosha closed recently, also a relic of the past just like the old arcade. I bet it would cost half a million to purchase that location. Can you get 5000 people to cough up $100? 50,000 people to cough up $10? I'd certainly be willing to help. 20 people canvasing for donations to "save the arcade" hitting about 100 houses a day for a month for an average of $5 per house could get around $300,000. Still need more... If the location is "paid for", the rent from the upstairs locations should be enough to pay for your own property taxes and utility costs...that's why it existed for so long...either that, or they were locked into an unbelievable rent rate. You tell me, Dan. What should we do? I have 40 arcade games in better shape than the crap in that place.-GalagaFan

Why do these places close? I mean, I know all the obvious reasons, but damn it!, once these announcements are made here, one of the old-time billionaire gamers should automatically reach out and save these places. All they have to do is renovate these great arcades and "restore" the cabinets with brighter hybrid technologies. I swear, just replace all the controllers with low maintenance clicking solid state hardware devices, replace the CRTs with low power super high contrast organic LED monitors, replace and enhance all the cabinet lights with synchronized super bright LEDs, and then you can run these arcades off of a couple of freakin' PC's. Then advertise, advertise, advertise. There will be no shortage of players after that, and the maintenance costs will be next to nothing. This stupid recession will be over in five years. Can't someone hold on to this arcade for just a little bit longer? Come on! Please stop this from happening! I want to go there. I'll never make it if this closure actually goes through. Please!-Dan

I live about 10 minutes from here, I had driven by it and heard they had an arcade a long time ago so I was surprised when I stumbled across this site and found they still do. I actually went there for the first time tonight and was blown away. Its no FunSpot, but its as close as we are can get. They have even more games then what is listed here, and about 15 pinball machines too. go there now!!!-jpcline004

Well, I just got back from Funspot, from their annual tournament, which went quite well. I did say that I would check the condition of their pinball games, and I did. The pins that were not part of the tournament did not work as well as those that were in the tournament, but most were playable. One game in particular (Jurassic Park) had a flipper that didn't work, but I'm sure their maintenance crew will work on that one. Another machine had a coin slot that didn't work. As I said in my prior post, it's hard to maintain pinball machines, especially in the world's largest arcade. Just bring it to someone's attention and get your token back.-Richard M.

Salem Willows
Salem
Massachusetts
Salem Willows' selection of classic arcade games has really deteriorated over the past 5 years. The last time I went there (today), they only had Asteroids, Capcom Bowling, Centipede, Galaga, Galaxian, Ms. Pac-Man, Operation Wolf, Pac-Man, Sea Wolf, Space Invaders, Super Sprint, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Tetris, The Simpsons, Tournament Arkanoid, & Turbo Out Run. Dragon's Lair 20th Anniversary, Ironman Ivan Stewart's Super Off Road, Rampart, and Tapper are gone. For some inexplicable reason, TMNT is now in the Casino instead of the arcade. Also, the Centipede game is in an entirely different language (might be German). Too bad, because I remember their classic selection had at least 33 or more games. Now it's just whittled down to 16. If you live in the New England area, skip Salem Willows' arcade and go to Funspot, Hampton Beach, or Salisbury Beach instead. However, I highly recommend Peppy's Pizza at SW, which has the best pizza in Salem.-Zach

Gameland did seem like a decent place, except now it seems like the have gone back to charging the people who work there. I don't mind that they had to fire me (tourest seasion was over and they had no need for me anymore... oh fun), but some of the games will not work, no matter how much money you put into it. At least 4 times a shift someone would ask for their money back, and all I would do would be to give them back tokens. So yeah, it may be worth it to play some of the games, but make sure to carefully watch to see which ones work and which ones don't.-Previous Employee

Nickel World
Rockford
Illinois
I have been to a number of arcades that have what are possibly illegal multiple classic arcade games. I have not been to this arcade, so I have no clue as to if this is one of them. If it is, then there is probably a virtual dip switch setting the owner can use to tell the machine to save the high scores. Anyway, I have not reported any of the potentially illegal cabinets I have seem in arcades, because I don't want anymore harm to come to these remaining video game rooms. Happy Hours arcade games are not sanctioned trademark machines and are as legal as MAME; I learned that the hard way when I tried to be legal by purchasing one of these to replace my personal MAME machine. Illegal PCBs should be replaced with legal multiple games such as UltraCade (or Global Arcade Classics) and Arcade Legends. Here is some info on the implications; Anti-Piracy Forces Target Arcade Classics: http://www.techweb.com/wire/story/TWB19980422S0010-Dan

I agree with Joe's comments(below). I've been looking for a place like this for years. It was very surprising to find out that an arcade collection like this was even in the area. Overall, it's difficult to fairly judge this place. Given the extinction of arcades I think you're almost forced to to say its great. Nevertheless,there are plenty of beat things about Crab Towne: screen-burn, fades, coin redemption issues, and some faulty controls. Other machines are disabled, out of order, steal your quarters, or lack sound, etc. In any case, I feel like some of the issues in the comments here are kind of exaggerated. Obviously the condition may have changed in the past couple of years. To that point, there's actually a maintenance request form you can fill out as well as a game request service. Pretty rad. -Jon

April 08 - visited this place on a trip from NJ to Washington D.C. -- About 70 % of the games are working but many are in poor shape, almost all are very dirty. The atmosphere was pretty strange, kinda creepy. There was only one other person in the place for the hour or so i was there so don't expect a social experience. I still recommend checking the place out if you're in the area - the games are cheap and it's near impossible to find a collection like this one now...worth the visit.-Joe

The price is actually $6 to play everything. Anyway, if you're in the area, check it out. It's $6 for free play on all the machines, plus they serve pizza, nachos, and hot dogs. There's also a duel XBOX set-up to play titles of today. It's located on University Avenue within walking distance of Austin Peay State University.-Jason Shoulders

Went there late last year. Lots (and I mean lots) of the machines are broken. If they actually have power at all, they either have display issues or the stick/buttons don't work properly. A few of the older 'classic' games are free but the aforementioned quality of the machines counters this.-Chris

Considering they don't have a lot of games, they need to maintain them better. I lost several quarters last time I was there because 2 games were broken and one pinball machine was busted too.

Funspot/American Classic Arcade Museum
Laconia

I go to Funspot every week to play and as of 03/08 over half of the pinball machines are shut off beause of constant complaints. The ones that are still on have defects as well that make it hard to win. The pinball games at Funspot have fallen into terrible disrepair. I have spoken kindly with the tech. several times and little has been done. Although I am proud to live very close to Funspot, I am crushed when I go in and see the condition of the games. For the last year or so, they have decided to leave as many defective games on as possible in order to make the money and issue refunds (tokens)instead of marking the games out of order, or repairing. This constitutes stealing in my book. They knowingly leave broken pins on for weeks and months. The pinballs are in such disrepair I wonder if they will ever catch up. If you are coming from far away to play pinball don't bother. If you are not a regular, you cannot know which games are working, and you will be disappointed. If you come for the classics, pac-man, galaga, etc. most of them are still O.K.-Chris Cannon

Chris, I find it interesting that you posted almost the exact comment for Funspot in Laconia, NH and for Boomers in Dania, FL; that you visit each place once a week. (Do you drive or fly? Either way, I want _your_ job! LOL!)... The other nearly identical comment about the place in Florida was deleted, BTW... As for Funspot in NH, I admit I've not been there in about a year, but have never really had problems with the pins there; some don't work but then it's hard to maintain pinball machines. I will very likely go up there in about two months; I can certainly check the condition of the games then and comment about it. :)-Richard M.

Used to have lots of classics, all the classic games it has of late (2008) is literally the 1 Ms.Pac Man/Galaga Class of '81. They used to have plenty of pinball and other classics on the upper floor... Now there is no pinball, and the upper floor is just a mess of games that are off or non-working games. Most of the video games that do work there presently are Car Driving and Gun Games (Time Crisis 2, 3, 4 kinda games), and plenty of Prize Claws, Stacker and DDR. Be careful of the 'slot machines' one will not work at all and the other only occasionally. They do have plenty of fighting games (Street Fighter 3rd Strike and Tekken)..Literally half of their skee-ball and ticket game dispensers are broken! It isn't uncommon to see kids stealing tickets out of the basketball ticket games by standing on the side and waving their hand rapidly in front of the backboard/net sensor. Sad to see the state it is in since I've been going there off and on my whole life (20+ years)..Maybe it will improve, it is the only real arcade left on the South side of OKC, (until you get towards Moore/Norman area).-Rifter

Went here last summer or so, they do have a big arcade with a wide variety of games, including classics.. However, last I remember, this place is getting pretty neglected. It is sorta dirty looking and stuff (esp. the mid-to-upper floor).. Hopefully things will improve over time.-Rifter

Was looking for places to play where I live now and stumbled across this web site. Used to live in Portland and loved both the old and new locations for Ground Kontrol. Have seriously thought about putting out some money and trying to copy their model in other cities I have lived in because it was such a classic arcade reminiscent of the ones I went to as a kid in the 80s. Can't beat it, if you go to Portland you MUST go to Ground Kontrol.-Jeff

Amazing vintage games and some new ones too. Glad to finally show my kids what a real arcade looked like in my day. Not too many of these left. Bring a stack of $1 bills because that is all the change machine takes. Oh yea, he also has Stargate pinball.

2/2/08 -ok it is an aging dinosaur. But one of the few dnosaurs still alive. A real arcade from the late 70's to early 90's. A decent amount of pinball and video game in working order although most if not all show their age. Many are still a quarter per game, but some like the Simpsons pinball require 50 cents (despite the 25 cent sign in the game). Pinbot merely steals your money. Stay away. My personal favorite Carnival is working fine and only 25 cets. The gane room is situated between the restaurant/keno hall and the price gauging liquor store. This is 2008 folks, experience it while you can. -Al

Here's my youtube video of the classic 80's arcade games Cedar Point's Main arcade had in 2007. It's called "1980's Classic Arcade Games at Cedar Point '07". The video description tells you which games were working and which ones were worse for the wear. Down quite a bit from just a few years ago.

Wow Nice to hear this place is still open. Went to school near crabtown in the early 80's,and it was the best hang out, especially when you hooked school. I worked there overnights for about 3 weeks. what a trip. They actually paid you under the table. Steaming that many crabs is quite the experience. The arcade games were the best and everything was in one large room back then. Next time I get to Maryland will have to check it out!-Dawn

I lived in Santa Cruz back in the late 80s-early 90s, and went here all the time. I went back for a visit this month. Terrific selection of classic games, but a LOT of them are in poor playing condition. Q*bert-no sound, Donkey Kong joystick really loose, Tron spinner grinds/ tough to turn, others had issues as well. Too bad, I was really looking forward to a whole afternoon of retro gaming. I wound up spending all my tokens on pinball (awesome selection) and air hockey. Definitely go, but "spec out" the machine before you drop a token in.-Cartouche

Gameland, located at 120 Broad St. in Lake Geneva, WI will be closed until Feb. 1st 2008, they have no hours posted and no phone number to call (my guess is to save money), they love to drill 400 holes in the back of every classic arcade machine they have, the Donkey Kong -is- a mini cabaret style cabinet (not sure if sound works), the place is packed with a ton of old school classic stand-ups, and cocktails. Looking through the glass, it didn't seem nasty dirty or anything. I'd have to go back when the place is open and the lights are on to really see the condition of all of the games. Parking is 25 cents for 30 minutes. Oh yeah, it was F'ing cold!! To see some pictures of this location see this forum post: http://www.gamesforum.ca/showthread.php?p=1217126#post1217126 -Brett

I have no way of confirming this but their Donkey Kong cab looks to be an original, and I do mean original. The cabinet is red-orange, which would mean that unless it is a restoration/conversion that was deliberately painted that color it is from Nintendo's original DK manufacturing run of converted Radar Scope cabinets. (The much more common baby blue cabs came a short while later.) The red cabs are pretty rare -- less than 3000 were made -- and this one is in excellent shape, as is their Ms. Pac-Man/Galaga - Class Of 1981, which is of course only a few years old. This place has great pizza, is open only for dinner, and is always absolutely packed. People often line up outside an hour before they open and you should do the same if you want to eat there, as the wait times can easily hit 90 minutes.-Chris

I was born and raised in Natick. I remember back in the early 2ks (1999, 2000), I used to goto fun and games to play tekken tag a lot. There was always atleast 3 people playing it- typically more like 7 or 10 at a time. Great memories of getting my butt whipped :). Every tekken player knew each other. Good times... Also back then they had a really good air hocky table over in the cornner. They've since replaced it with a far worse glowing air hocky table :(. I never went to the village green too often so I don't have as many fond memories about the F&G2 shack. I was so dissapointed when I went to F&G recently. Their nice flashy enterance is gone, most of their *real arcade* games are gone, and the few games that are left really arn't as fun. Sure Tekken 5, Tetris, and Virtua Tennis are fun... but that's not the point. 3 or 4 games down from 8 to 10 games being fun. Oh well... Thats why I collect arcade machines myself now! My home arcade is always great :D-Linolium

I promised the manager of this arcade that I'd interview him this Sunday (1/6/08) and hopefully, he'll let me record it (and get in some shots of the arcade games). This place is barely noticeable near the riverfront...very undervisited and very unappreciated, despite its mix of classic and modern games. I happened to overhear (from the back room), whilst visiting last Sunday (12/30/07) some tape recordings of high scores from the 1990's. This guy has somehow stayed in business for a long time...although many of the games mentioned on his tapes are no longer on display here! He even has pool and foosball and air hockey, plus a drink machine (and free mints). Truly this is a place worth visiting, and I intend to prove it this Sunday.-Keith K Smith

Ahh, the Pak Mann. When I worked in Pasadena (1990-1991), I'd sometimes stop by after work and play Tempest, or whatever. I never had any problems here, but one of my coworkers got beaten up in the parking lot one night. I stopped going after that. I heard somewhere that the people who owned Pak Mann set up another arcade somewhere else in the San Gabriel Valley (Arcadia? Alhambra?). The new place is (reportedly) much more family/child oriented, though, more like a Chuck E. Cheese....-cph

The very best players could score over 900K on Ms. Pac-Man, and can reach this score on either a sped-up or regular-speed game. In the "anniversary edition", one can play 141 mazes, while in the orignal machine the game often ends on the 133rd, where you get an upside-down Chase screen. In either case, if you complete maze #141, the machine then resets. There are hundreds or thousands who can reach the end of a sped-up game; there are only about six who can get that far on a regular-speed game.-Richard M.

Good point. As much as I love Ms. Pac-man, I have trouble seeing over the horizon of 200,000 points. I wonder what Billy's record would be with a sped up Ms. Pac-man. I also wonder if the newer machine has a death screen or how far a good player can actually go on one of these things. The Galaga does have a fast shooter.-Dan

The Centipede/Millipede/Missile Command/Bowling combo is gone right now. Hopefully, it is out for repair. I met two attractive girls there a while back. One claimed to have scored over 500,000 on the Ms Pac-man with one quarter. Apparently, she and her friend play at the Hub on a regular basis. I am told they work at the local Dominoes Pizza. The Ms Pac-man score is up to almost 800,000. I think that one of these young ladies may have something to do with that. Look out Billy Mitchell; there may be a new Billie Jean King (of Kong) on her way from the wings to knock you off your throne.-Dan

Sounds like the Ms. Pac-Man game is sped up. Scores of 500K to 800K are impressive when done on one quarter even on a sped-up game, but only by doing it on a regular-speed game would the players be in the "Billy Mitchell" class. Is Galaga sped-up as well?-Richard M.

It quickly evolved into a HUGE place with a sizeable pool hall. I spent far too much time and money over the years here, but have many fond memories of the joint. It's hard NOT to compare; that's human nature. And comparing, it is rather sad what Fun&Games has turned into. But it's understandable. They had to evolve or die. With PC and console gaming available in such great quality and quantity, it's much harder to convince someone to get off his/her duff to come to their establishment to play games. And the ridiculous pricing doesn't help either. So what places are left for teens/young adults to get together and have some fun? There is the cinema on Flutie Pass, but that's not the best place for a bunch of teens to have conversations. So that leaves... oh yeah, the Natick Mall (sorry, "Collection"). I'm sure all those overpriced store owners will be delighted to be housed in the most likely gathering place for the area youth.-Nostalgio

I have many fond memories of Boardwalk USA. You paid a flat fee and every game was on free play. Later on they used a card system and limited you to 5 credits. However you could get around this simply by putting your card into another machine. In it's later years, they went to a mixed setup with new games that were exempt from the free play system. I believe it finally evolved into an arcade called Nickel A Play.-Dusty

Old Farmers Creamery
St. Petersburg
Florida
Was able to get out there. The place looks like a huge red barn, so you can't miss it. The frogger game was being repaired, but I was assured it would be back. I found out the Astroids Deluxe and Donkey Kong were on free play after I heard my quarters fall to the floor of the cabinet. You might want to wipe off the joysticks with a wet napkin, since the little kids this place attracts and their ice cream can make a sticky combination. I've decide that all classic arcade games need a Rgb Cga To Vga Video Converter and a new LCD monitor with a lucite "lens" that simulates the shape of tube monitor. These old monitors suck. They are always warped and burned in, they use way too much energy and they are everywhere, making classic arcade gaming look awful when it is not at all. If you own the pcb or rom, you should be able to renovate the cabinet and game to a point where it only uses as much energy as a lightbulb, that way they would always be turned on and would always work. And, the renovation would easily pay for itself in at least two years.-Dan

On a recent visit to this place, I found somewhat of a secret treasure that this place has. If you go upstairs where the lazer tag is, you will find a sitting area. If you go past the sitting area, you will find a room with all of these games. They are turned off, but if you ask someone up there, they will turn all of the machines on for you. They are supposedly for children that are having a birthday party, but the public can usually play those games too. The games are: Arkanoid: The revenge of doh, Mr. Do, Centenial Circuit, Warlords, Asteroids Deluxe, Millipede, Frenzy, Wacko, Super Punch Out, Off Road, Ms. Pacman, Super Hang On, Arkanoid, Zaxxon, Popeye, Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong Jr., Return of the Invaders, Stargate, Cabal,. Pacman, Super Pacman, Gorf, Raiden, Joust, Paperboy, Laser Ghost, Stun Runner, Air Combat 22, Super Monoco GP, Run and Gun, Buister Brothers, and Terminator 2.

Well it's good that this website has been updated once again for the first time in a while. In case anyone here is interested, the list of classic games to this place is almost accurate, and there's only two things wrong with it. This arcade no longer has Commando, but does still have Paperboy though. I just e-mailed Tony. P about this, so he can correct it when he gets around to doing the updates again. I thought I'd let everyone here know just in case about which classic games are still here though. -Joe

Jillian\'s
Lakewood
Colorado
I visited Jillians on the last day of my vacation, so any follow-up will need to be made by someone from the area... Jillians is in the Colorado Mills Mall in Lakewood. It is a very large place that primarily contains newer games and billiards; it also has a small bar. Of interest to classic arcade gamers are the machines as mentioned here. The games on the Ms. Pac-Man/Galaga machine are sped up and therefore on easier settings. The Ultracade is out of order so I don't know what games are on there but there should be some of interest to classic gamers based on other Ultracades I have seen. To play the games you need to purchase a credit card-like device that you swipe to deduct credits. You are awarded 600 points to a dollar (why?) and play on the games listed here is a reasonable 150 points or 25 cents a pop. Most of the other games are more though.-Richard M.

Crab Towne USA
Glen Burnie
Maryland
If you're looking at the list of games available at Crab Towne thinking this is some sort of fabulous arcade museum, you're sorely mistaken. This place is a DIVE. Yes, they have a buttload of games, and some of them even work sometimes (though you'll find that most if not all have at least some sort of flaw, whether it be malfunctioning controllers or 25+ years of burn-in). Upon entering the joint, you'll have to endure what my friends and I have dubbed the "poor-white-trash gauntlet." The game room is separate from the rest of the place and is on the far side, so when you first walk in you'll find yourself face to face with about 15 or 20 escapees from an Oak Ridge Boys music video circa 1982. For the most part, as long as the Keno is working, they'll leave you alone. Unfortunately, since the change machines haven't worked since the Clinton administration, you will have to bother the cashier at the counter for quarters. If you're lucky, though, you'll get the kid with the mullet who sometimes thinks that five quarters equals change for a dollar. $3 or $4 should do it... trust me, you wouldn't want to stay for much longer than that. By the way, if you do ever bother to visit this place, DO NOT EAT THE FOOD. In the years that we've been going to this place, my friends and I have bought two food items... both were crab cake sandwiches, and BOTH had glass in them. Yes, I said GLASS. This was on two completely separate occasions. How this place has stayed open for so long is beyond me. What's that old saying? Fool me once, shame on you... Anyway, on to the game room. You'll find dozens of video games and pinball machines in various states of disarray. There'll be an assortment of torn-up stools in case you find a game you like. Occasionally, one of the natives will drift in and drop a quarter in the KLAX machine or play a few rounds of STAR WARS pinball, but for the most part, no one ever really goes into the game room. Sometimes you'll find an ash tray balanced next to the controls on certain games, and most have warped plastic from ancient cigarette burns. I hate to be so negative about it but, I guess I'm just really trying to convey what horrible condition most of these games are in. It's very sad. Perhaps someday someone with the time and resources will come in and make the savages an offer they can't refuse... take these games away from the horrible land known as Glen Burnie and restore them to their former glory.-Jeff L.

Barcade
Brooklyn

Made my first visit to Barcade. The games are in good working order, except for Galaga and Gauntlet; the sluggish response of Galaga's joystick was a major hindrance to play on that game. When I played Gauntlet, I could not get Wizard to move or shoot diagonally. Galaga actually had three games programmed in that cabinet: Galaga, Galaga 3, and Galaxian. In addition to games mentioned by prior posters to this thread, Barcade also has Robotron and Pengo. The Crystal Castles machine worked fine.-Richard M.

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!!!!! -unimpressed

Some additional comments... In addition to the games on this list, there is also Space Duel. I had already mentioned that I did not see Gyruss. Ms. Pac-Man is sped up and Galaga has fast shots. If you reach stage 256 in Galaga the machine resets. Parking seems to be a problem there; there is a public parking lot about a block south of the shopping center where you can park for an hour until something opens up in front of Oskar Blues.-Richard M.

Ground Kontrol

Just spent a long Labor Day weekend at Ground Kontrol with my fiancee and we had a blast. Drove down from Seattle for a short vacation to celebrate our 10-year anniversary and recent engagement, and we centered our trip around Ground Kontrol. I was disappointed that a few games were out of order but that is to be expected for 20 to 25-year-old hardware. Glad I played Star Wars (1983) the first night because it was dead the next two nights. Also, both Spy Hunter and Tempest were down the entire time I was there, as was Ms. Pac-Man but they had another one that worked as well as a great "Multi-Pac" machine upstairs. Overall most games were in near perfect working order. The only thing that could improve this place is even more classic games (but the place is pretty packed as it is) and food service would be awesome, but alas, no kitchen. No matter, we'll be going back soon!-Chris

I got to make another visit here last week, and as it turned out, this place actually has more classics on the list than it currently does. There's three games listed here which this arcade no longer has, but there is also four classic games currently not listed that this place has. I told Tony P. about this, and hopefully he gets around to updating this site soon, once he gets around to fixing it up and all. It just looks like this place has less classics than on the list, with how the machines are set up and all, and there's also more pinball machines in the classic game section of this arcade as well, as they make it appear that there's less classic games here than there actually are. I'll leave it to Tony P. to reveal what classics this location has, and no longer contains, and I can still gladly recommend this arcade to any hardcore fans of classic arcade games, (despite the minor flaws some of the older games here unfortunately have, which as we all know is all too common with twenty something year old arcade machines). I just wish there were more arcades in NJ like this (and anywhere else for that matter), as good arcades like these with so many fine classic games have unfortunately been a dying breed for many years now, as have arcades in general.-Joe

Visited Foxwoods tonight. They have added a new Namco machine (or at least it's the first time it was brought to my attention, it's quite possible that the machine has been there for a few months). Anyway, they now have two Namcos. One is the standard Ms. Pac-Man/Galaga "class of 1981", and the newer one is a Ms. Pac-Man/Pac-Man/Galaga, so you don't need the "secret joystick sequence" to play Pac-Man. I don't know how many of these games exist, but I have never seen one like this before.-Richard M.

Was in the area this week and decided to stop in. As others have mentioned, MANY of the games are either turned off or in some other way unplayable. My best estimate is that 2/3 of the games were unplayable. Happily, from what I discovered while there, I can report that Gorf, Carnival and Phoenix were 100% playable. Sadly, One of the Gyruss machines (I didn't try the other one) and Make Trax had controller problems which made playing them impossible. It's really a shame that such an awesome collection of old and hard to find games is in such disrepair.-Josh

As of last Saturday the arcade still had all the machines listed, plus they added Jr Pac-man, a Multicade (has Ladybug, which can't be beat), Donkey Kong and Mercs. I'm dying to ask them if I can fix their machines for free (labor and maybe a joystick or 2), especially the Tetris monitor (it probably needs a new monitor). The Jr Pac-man had a slight horizontal roll, but it was still fun to play. The After burner probably needs a new monitor. They had a 1994 Bust-a-Move game in their long row of classics. There is also a Simpsons that has been there a long time. -Dan

Now a days it just doesn't have the magic touch it once had. The pizza is sorry and the roof leaks. Never-the-less, I still like it because of the fond memories and it always has plenty of room.-Mark

Gameland
Lake Geneva

For a couple years my friend had been telling me about this arcade with mostly vintage video games in Lake Geneva. Being a collector of arcade games I always wanted to check this place out.Before we went I read the reviews of this place on this page & everyone trashed it? Now I REALLY wanted to go!! Well, we finally did this past weekend. It was like being back in 1985!! This arcade had mostly classic games from the 80`s. It also had like 20 more modern games.This place reminded me alot of the arcades in the 80`s...dirty, unorganized & alot of games not working. But thats what made it great, there were more than enough classics to play.It was painfully obvious that this place needs a GAME TECH to fix some of these games. It was like going back in time. I counted 75 games & 7 pinball machines. It was great to play classics like TRON, TRACK & FIELD, PAPERBOY, JUNGLE KING, Jr.PAC-MAN, ASTEROIDS,GALAGA, MONACO GP,WORLD SERIES & many others. These games worked PERFECT & were in nice shape!! Yeah, alot of games did not work, but playing all the other classics more than made up for it. We had a ball there, we played for 4 hrs. There is NO place in Wisconsin like this so I would suggest it to anyone who misses the arcades of the 80`s. Just make sure & wash your hands COMPLETELY when done playing!! I made a new list of games there & if they are working. I hope you post it. HAVE FUN!!-C.C. Benning

Carousel Family Entertainment

Well I got to make another visit here today for the first time in a while, and this arcade is still good, but not quite what it used to be. A few games on the list are now gone, and I submitted them to Tony P., though I could be wrong about which ones I think are no longer here, and hopefully someone else can confirm which games they do and don't have in case I was wrong once the update is made. As for the games they still have here, a few of them weren't working (I can't remember which ones exactly though), and some had bad monitors, or controls. The joysticks on Donkey Kong and Super Mario Bros. were kind of loose (especially on Donkey Kong), which made them kind of hard to play to an extent, but were still playable for the most part. Also on the Ultracade machine (which I didn't play), two buttons were stuck, as the second one on the top of player 1's side was stuck, as was the first one on the top of player 2's side. Overall though, this is still the best arcade in Seaside, though that's not saying much at all, since good arcades here (and almost anywhere else I go) seem to be few and far between these days. While this arcade isn't quite as good as it used to be, it's still a good one to visit if you like classic arcade games, despite not having as many classics as before, not to mention the problems I mentioned that some of the games here have and all.-Joe

The new arcade is still looking good as of Saturday. The Elvis pinball is in the original arcade along with a working fast chip Ms Pac-man. Speaking of fast chip games, the Ms Pac-man/Galaga in the newer arcade is set to slow. I now cannot stand a slow setting, since the fast Ms Pac-man and Pac-man sprites are so much more competent against the ghosts. Got the high score on Ms Pac-man/Galaga's easter egg Pac-man game (Apparently "up up up down down down left right left right left" is a common cheat for some newer gamers). After looking at a manual pdf for the machine just now, it appears that you can enable Speedy Ms. Pacman & Rapid Fire Galaga for one game by pushing the joystick left, right, left, right, up, up, up, fire then the start button (there are even more cheats there). Anyway, the new arcade has a South Park pinball where Elvis used to be. The Joust was working great again, with my high score soaring above the others. The Centipede combo screen has shifted from being too far left to too far up, but it is still working well. The Donkey Kong combo and Space Invaders combo were also working well. The arcade was nice and busy, which is about the best retro feel you can get on a Summer Saturday night. -Dan

Out Run and Star Wars are gone. New games are Track and Field, Donkey Kong, Tron, Atari Football and an early video game called Paddle Ball which is like Pong. A GREAT GREAT arcade. Everything is restored and in great working condition. The pinball machines are just amazing. All the lights and bumpers work and they do a great job of maintaining the machines.

The classics are all inside a 6-in-1 type machine. Just like the old days. Only more digitally compressed. Niles is right across the border from South Bend, so if Mega Play is closed [on a holiday, for example], this place can tide you over in the meantime. There is a Bowman's Motel across the street if you need a nightcap (check out "classic" channel 69 on the TV), and a Wal-Mart nearby if you need groceries. -Keith K Smith

The last bastion of classic arcade gaming on the Jersey Shore! Thank you for all your work keeping these games going. I live in San Diego, (where there are no arcades at all apparently) but I grew up in Point Pleasant and always hung our at Seaside and Point Beach boardwalks. Now I come back to visit freinds and family and the boardwalks are not what they used to be. All the arcades seem to have replaced their games with row after row of stupid skill cranes with iPod Shuffles in them that cost $5 a pop!!! The only thing that never changes on the boardwalk are the girls with the giant HAIR. What is up with that? But I digress... It's true the games are not in perfect condition, but were they ever in the 80's?!? I hope Star Wars is working on my next visit. Tempest had to suffice this time and it worked great. Thanks Again-Brian

Lyons Classic Pinball
Lyons

I went there today, a black light-lit nostalgia-fest I can tell you...Now to the current details. Tempest, Galaga, Frogger, Tron, Donkey Kong, Asteroids Deluxe & Papperboy work beautifully. Digdug, Asteroids Deluxe , Centipede & Gorf are Cabaret versions. Battlezone was turned off, and Elevator Action and Space Duel wouldn't accept my quarters (25+ yr old machines are bound to crap out sometimes). I didn't know that Discs of Tron is in the Pinball section (different room). Directions: Drive to Lyons, as you enter you will approach onto Main St. & see "Lyons Pinball" sign, take an immediate left and after turn left again onto Broadway, take the first left which you will see the Oskar Blues Restaurant Bar sign. Park and the arcade is in the sub basement by the pool tables, check out my high score (initials HIM) on missile command & tempest.-Oly-Shee-OT

I've been reading all the comments about the remodeled Fun and Games in Framingham, and I'm not quite sure that the over 21 gamers quite understand the direction that Fun and Games is (obviously) going. They are not packing in teenagers late at night like they used to. Instead, they have remodeled and cleaned the place up to focus on childrens birthday parties. Basically, my 8 year old and his friends love Fun and Games, my 25 year old who is a big gamer does not any more. People like myself, who frequented Fun and Games in the 70s and 80s need to stop comparing the arcade from back then to the modern day Fun and Games, its geared towards children now, bottom line.-Jay F.

Went back today. Turns out there's also a little liquor store next to the arcade--it isn't open on Sundays (when I was last there) so I simply assumed that the doors led to an exit. Another one of those old crane games is in there. Eight Ball Deluxe works excellent now, they seem to have someone that knows a lot about pinball, just not video games. "Big Bat" looks to be the next machine they will work on. No progress (at least from what I saw) on the video games.-ABR

I have lived in maryland my whole life. Im always looking for good arcades. But sadly, many here are gone. I always knew where crabtown was because of that sign with the crab on it. I never had any idea that they had an arcade untill a few months ago when my friend said he went there all the time. I finally went last week and, not lie, its like your in 1981 again! So may classics in 1 room. Some of the screens are a bit blurry but there old so i dont really hold it against the arcade. My fave game in there is Karate Master, I got the high score today. They also have a whole bunch of pinball games. But im not really into thoes so I only played 1. I strongly suggest any classic gamer to take a ride to crabtown :D Oh, you dont have to eat there to play the games, its a whole different room. But the food is wonderful because maryland crabs are so good :D You can smoke and drink in the arcade also.-Ken Randazzo jr.

Glen Burnie

Well, today was the "one day soon" from my post about this place 3 years ago, I finally made it here. I must say that I thought it was alright, I mean, sure not everything was working, but more than less were working. They have roughly 25 pinball machines, including baby pacman. 2 were out of order (one being baby pacman), the other being Eight ball deluxe (a 1970's machine I believe). They also have 3 very old "claw" games, I was unable to make out a copyright date or manufacturer on them, but they have to be at least 30 years old. Only one was working. Also there are 2 Ms. Pac Man machines, 2 Battlezone machines (both were broken), and 2 Galaga machines, not just one of each like the list above would make you think. Here's some detailed directions, I'm pretty sure this is not the best way to go, but take it for what it's worth. If traveling on I-95 or MD 295, take Route 100 East towards Glen Burnie (it is exit 43A on I-95, I am unsure what exit number from MD 295 it is). Take route 100 to exit 15 Oakwood RD, and turn right at the light at the bottom of the ramp, and make a right at the first light (Hospital Drive). Turn right onto Route 3/Crain Hwy (I think it was the 3rd light, not sure), and then make a left at the 1st light and you will be in their parking lot. The place sits literally right next to Route 100, but there is no exit onto Route 3 from 100. This place is just 5 miles from Arundel Mills Mall, so you can make a day out of it!-ABR

A few more comments about this place. Yes, it is sort of a "crab shack", maybe more like a diner of sorts, they have sandwiches, and even a breakfast menu. I sort of had it pictured like a cheap red lobster for some reason, I don't know why. And about making the drive for a "crab shack", who cares where these are, I mean, are some of us not the generation that grew up going to "Showbiz Pizza Place" and "Chuck E. Cheeses pizza time theatre", many of us went to a pizza place to play these games, well, now I go to a Crab place. Back to the games, the list above is rather accurate, but as someone has already said, that doesn't mean everything works. I still reccomend going though, you can't find this many machines (counting just the working ones) in many places outside of new hampshire. Even the change machine is old school, it's one of those where you put your bill on a tray and push it in. For the record, they seem to do a much better job taking care of their pinball machines than the video games. When I go again I'll see if anything with the actual video games has changed (my MAIN reason for going was for the Pinball). It looked like they were planning on working on (or sending out) the eight ball deluxe pinball game, so it's not like they completely ignore the game room like some have said.-ABR

I just got back from Lake Geneva after a family vacation. The weather was great over the weekend, but it was still too cold to go swimming! Lake Geneva is a spring-fed lake, so it is always cold it seems. I stepped into Gameland and stepped right out. I wanted to cry. My memories of this place were always good until now and I worry that I may have damaged that area of my mind where I looked at this place as heaven on earth for a video game addict like myself. The place was dirty, the staff was either rude or indifferent. This isn't atypical of most declining video arcades that still are around today, however. But the games were in bad, bad shape. The sound didn't work in some of the games I played. Would anyone play Xbox 360 without sound? Then why would someone want to play a real classic without sound? I felt robbed. The owner of this establishment must be old and not around for the day-to-day operations of this arcade, otherwise I believe he/she would do something to fix some of the issues they have. Gameland is simply a major disappointment and not what it once was.-Fred H.

People, quit complaining!!!!! All I see is complaining from people who are not true to old-school games. You want to play hi-tech, go home and play your X-BOX 360. Sure the games are not in the original cabinets. If they were, they would be in a collectors museum since most are over 20 years old. Kids......if these games had never existed, you would not have the fancy games you have today. Show some respect.

The two new games I now have are Mutation Nation & World Heroes. Time will only tell if this is at last the end of my arcade collection, and while it may be, if I do end up getting any other ones, I'll be sure to post them here as usual if I get anymore arcade games of anykind in the future.-Joe

This has to be one of the best, if not the best, arcades in this country. I heard about the place from this web site and traveled 3 hours to check it out and have to say I was totally blown away by the selection of all these rare games in one location. Mega Play's best game may be Sega's Spider-Man, which has not only been rare since the day it came out but is also a rare rom, is in great shape and all 4 joysticks and coin slots work. Their X-Men game is in good working order and is in an original 6 player cabinet which is also rare. Other games worth mentioning are MK1-4, Killer Instinct, Virtua Fighter 2, and T2 Judgment Day. Many more great games inbeween.-Dean

Now that I'm currently up to 80 (and counting?) arcade games, I figure I'd once again mention what the state of my arcade collection currently is, and I wonder if it's finally over when it comes to me getting any other arcade games? I doubt it though, since I always say that, but always seem to find new ones to get. In case this is it though, I'll post my current full collection in the next day or so, in order to give everyone here a better idea of all of the arcade games I own as of now.

I don't subscribe to Gameroom Magazine, nor have I ever heard of it, as I get most of my PCB's from ebay. I also get some of my games from online arcade shops, and personal sellers from the Google arcade collecting forums who sometimes have the PCB's I ask for on those boards. I might check it out now that you mentioned it, just to see what it's all about though. I should also say that I will soon be getting two more arcade games in the near future, and both of them will be Neo Geo cartridges once again. I'll let you all know what they are when I receive them, and I can't believe I'll soon have 80 (yes 80) arcade games! I never thought that would ever come close to happening when I first started collecting arcade games nearly seven years ago!-Joe

Do you subscribe to Gameroom Magazine? There is some interesting information about multiple PCBs. I own a Super Pac-man and Q*bert cabinet, but they need to be fully restored; I've started the process, but still need the corresponding PCBs (not asking). There seems to be plenty of PCBs out there on the internet. The only PCBs I have now are Trojan and Metafox, the games my two machines had been converted to.-Dan

Hopefully I'll have more of them coming in on the way soon to add onto my long list of nearly 80 arcade games!-Joe

Treasure Island (Fun Center)
Seminole
Florida
Okay, was finally able to get out there. I liked it. All of the classic machines I remember from the old location in Treasure Island are there. The downside is the lighting. I like bright places, so the overall lighting doesn't bother me, as long as the great sounds of games and excitement are in the air. A classic arcade is normally a dark place. The darkness extenuates the color in the game screens. You also don't have to have the monitors turned up so bright in a dark place, so the monitors last longer and use less electricity. The glare of the poorly located classic machines is almost unbearable. I would suggest a darkened corner of the arcade or a decorative arcade themed canopy above the classic games to make them more viewable and playable. The Tetris is still in need of repair, although I continue to appreciate the fact the attract/demo audio and playing music is nice and loud (the faded screen would be more viewable without the glare). That's all. Overall, it was a very bright, popular and pleasantly crowded place to visit. They also have plenty of parking. Now, all they need is the beautiful signs relocated from the old location to the new location...in Seminole. Also, can't wait for a good in-house pizza to accent the experience. There is supposed to be a new Arcade at John's Pass, but I didn't have time to visit it. Will try to get out there before it closes. (: -Dan

Recent Article • Fun Center offers more at Seminole location • By BOB McCLURE • http://www.tbnweekly.com/content_articles/020707_smb-03.txt • Manager Jenny Noell stands next to the new Sega virtual tennis game at the Treasure Island Fun Center, 7770 Seminole Blvd. • SEMINOLE – No signage exists on the building yet but when the Treasure Island Fun Center completes plans for its new location in Seminole, the business will be among the most visible on the street, according to its manager. • Owner Robert Noell Jr. and his daughter Jenny, who manages the popular video arcade center, recently relocated the business from 103 104th Ave. in Treasure Island to a former A&P grocery store at 7770 Seminole Blvd. • The center is open and will stage a grand opening in weeks to come when the signage and other last-minute details are in place. • “I expect to have the signage complete by Feb. 25,” said Jenny Noell. “It’s going to be a large, colorful palm tree and it will be like no other sign in the area. It will be worth waiting for.” • The move came about recently after Publix Supermarkets purchased the Treasure Island site, forcing Robert Noell to find another location. He bought the Seminole site for $2.4 million and has since added about $1 million in electric and plumbing upgrades, parking lot improvements and landscaping. • The move took place over a three-week period in December. • “We closed on Dec. 2 (on Treasure Island) and were out on Dec. 16,” said Jenny Noell. “It took us seven semi-trailer loads in eight days to move here. We thought we had about four loads but that business has been open 40 years and there was much more.” • The 16,800-square-foot building is about 55 percent larger than the old location and will offer about 150 games. • “We have plenty of room for growth and unlimited potential,” Jenny Noell said. “We don’t have corporate constraints and have the freedom to do what we want.” • The center will offer an array of games for all ages. The spectrum ranges from a merry-go-round and Ferris wheel for small children to some of the more traditional arcade games, such as Pac-Man, Ms. Pac-Man and Tetris, as well as more advanced offerings like a Sega virtual tennis game. • “We’ve spent about $100,000 on new equipment,” said Jenny Noell. “We have nine new pieces and about that many still coming.” • Plans also call for the addition of food service. • “We’ll have a soda and food operation with our own pizza,” said Jenny Noell. “We’ll offer a one-size pizza to start and will add other things like ice cream and hot dogs.” • Plans also call for a larger area for birthday parties, which is expected to stay very busy. • “We have a lot more kids here within a short distance,” said Jenny Noell. “At the beach, (kids) had to make an effort to get there. That won’t be the case here.” • Hours are 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Call 391-9105.-Dan

Hello. It appears as someone below doesn't believe anyone should criticize gameland. I wonder if they actually have been there. The video posted by tonio shows Gameland a few years back. All I can say is: WOW. Things have changed since then, unfortunately. There is no Space Invaders, Shinobi, Star Wars, Missile Command, NARC, Rolling Thunder, Tempest, and I don't remember the Elevator Action. If you think Gameland is above criticism, why don't you head off to Funspot in NH (Check the listing) or Ground Kontrol in Oregon. Then go back to your Gameland and try to claim it is justified giving the public these broken down games. If you go to Gameland, walk through with a smile but don't drop a quarter in the games or you'll leave a very disappointed person.-Stevens

Those of you who attend the 1st Church of Pac-Man already know this, but I just tried it at a local closing flea market, and this easter egg works GREAT! Insert coin(s) into machine; at the "press start button" screen, choose either Ms. Pac-Man or Galaga, move the joystick in the following pattern: up, up, up, down, down, down, left, right, left, right, left. You'll hear a sound. When the Ms. Pac-Man character changes color press the Ms. Pac-Man start button and !!!!!!! YOU WILL BE PLAYING PAC-MAN.

Last time I was at Funspot, there was one game (Gyruss) that wasn't working. (This is out of about 15 that I played when I was there last month.) The other games worked fine. I would disregard Hoover's comment about requiring a "rubber suit" (Funspot has very clean washrooms, definitely the cleanest among arcades I have seen, and the rest of the arcade certainly passes my standards). In all the times I've been there I have never seen anyone "wasted" from going to their bar.-Richard M.

Gulf Shores Amusement Park was a tiny, tiny little park with only a few kiddie/fair rides. http://rcdb.com/pd1068.htm This says it "was in danger of closing at the end of the 2004 season. Hurricane Ivan sealed the deal by destroying the park." The other 'park' in Gulf Shores is Waterville. http://www.watervilleusa.com/arcade.htm http://rcdb.com/pd102.htm When I went in Sept '04 (just before Ivan hit), it had a large arcade with several classics, including Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. After Ivan hit, the roller coaster there was partly under water. The arcade was upstairs in the building next to the coaster, so I wonder if the water got that high? I have some pics of inside the arcade. I'll try to come up with a list (though it's from '04). I'm surprised there isn't an entry here for this park, unless somenoe goofed and that's what this one was actually for (instead of GSAP)? Sorry, the comments don't allow line feeds.-Brian L

Funspot/American Classic Arcade Museum

This place is great, I grew up about 20 minutes from here and we went there all the time in high school. Back in the heyday, they were open 24 hours a day. It was awesome, go down at midnight, not much of a crowd, play whatever you wanted. Back when NH had highway tokens, (which they have since done away with), they were 12c each when you bought them at the toll booths, and they worked (and still do I think) in all the funspot games! It was great, a half-price discount. The kids that worked there got to keep the highway tokens they took out of the machines, since they couldnt' recycle them into the token bank there... so they were psyched too (free tolls for them). I haven't been back lately, live about an hour from there now, it was and is likely still a great place. They expanded at least 3 or 4 times back in the 80s and 90s, the original building was what is on the far left (if you are looking from the road), single-story, very small. They built it up hugely for a while, major expansions. -Ed Sawyer

Yesterday, I accidentally stumbled across Crabtown USA when leaving my new Doctor's office off of Bus. Route 3. I was leaving the Hardee's and making a right to go up to the next light to make a U-Turn. Saw the place on the left. Ironically, I had been looking to visit for years after seeing the entries on various visits to this page. They have a wonderful selection of games. The number of pinball tables is astounding. However, the vast majority all games could use a bit of polish and cleaning. Many games were either turned off or not working and a few like, "Punch Out!!" had severe burn-in and/or monitors were failing. I was happy to see the Vs. Super Mario Bros. and Vs. Hogan's Alley (non-working) cabinets. I haven't seen those since '86 or '87. I may have to go back soon, but armed with my own cleaning products. I hate neglected games.-Dwight J.

Actually, you cannot compare these beat up games to a rusted out Camaro. If you want to use that analogy, I'd say it would be like RENTING a car only to find out the engine sputters, the windshield is cracked, and the door handles don't work so you have to crawl through the passenger door. People would gladly play these games if it were merely the outside being beat up. It is all about the game's controls 1st. If you can't control the game, you can't play it right. These games have many bad controls... the track-ball on centipede, several touchy joysticks, bad tron spinner, etc. The blurry monitors can be overlooked if everything else works...but, sadly, it doesn't. I'd love nothing more than this place to close its doors because it is an embarrassment to the 80's classics that are dying inside it.-GalagaFan

These games work well at taking your money... but don't work so well when it comes to the controls, screens, and sound. The guy below tries to justify the place by saying, "Yeah, the games are old so you should expect them to be rough". That is like going to a car show and finding a rusted out 69 Camaro. If you criticize the car, you're an idiot because the car is 37 years old and you should expect rust! Come on, guy. This place sucks. Admit it.-Robert

You people are fools for thinking that this place is crap for being a dump....that is part of the package. This place has remained the exact same since I was 7 and I am in my thirties now. Not many places can say that. I personally still have a blast going in there and am happy that there is actually still somewhere that has not changed and truly brings me back to my past. I know personally many people who walk out of there smiling and if some pretentious fuck thinks this is too ratty for him stay away and leave it for the people that enjoy it for what it is. I talked with the owner last week when I was in there and he was explaining how they have someone come in once a week to maintain the games. Considering how damn old they were I was happy to see how good of shape they were in and most seemed to be in fine working order. There is more to the arcade experience than just shiny pretty new games;)-Chicago and Lake Geneva Local

Was there tonight. The black centipede cabinet is a genuine cabinet design with correct art and all, not painted all black like some old cabinets. Got the high score on Ms Pac-man; that was fun. All seemed well until I did a google search when I arrived home. I'll miss the beach view and the toasty Subway sandwiches served in the connecting building: NEWS --- Amusement center will move to former A&P store A Treasure Island business will keep its name as it takes over space in Seminole. By ANNE LINDBERG Published May 28, 2006 ------ The Treasure Island Fun Center is trading its prime beach location for bigger digs in Seminole. Robert Noell Jr., the center's owner, paid $2.4-million in March for the former A&P grocery store at 7770 Seminole Blvd through his company Treasure Island Land Co. LLC. Despite its new location in Seminole, the arcade will retain its name, said Jenny Noell, Noell's daughter and the center's manager. "It's going to be a Treasure Island theme" filled with pirates and parrots to justify keeping the name, she said Friday. Publix bought the family's existing entertainment center at 103 104th Ave. on Treasure Island in August for $4.4-million, according to Pinellas County records. The center and the grocery next door are slated to become a Publix complete with bakery, deli, fresh seafood and meats. Noell said her father had received many offers for the property since buying the land in 1998, but had refused all until Publix came along. The grocery next door had already sold to Publix, so it put the pressure on Robert Noell to sell. Knowing they would eventually sell the Treasure Island site, the Noells kept their eyes open for a new home. When they saw the Seminole property, they knew they'd found what they were looking for. The site is 4 acres, which more than quadruples the three-quarters of an acre on Treasure Island. The building is 16,625 square feet, which is 4,000-5,000 square feet larger than the current space. The larger space will provide storage as well as space for private parties and pizza sales. It also has more parking and ample space for expansion, she said. Noell said plans are to keep the Treasure Island site open until late August or early September if the estimated $366,000 renovation on the new site goes smoothly. Noell said she's working hard to combat rumors that the center is closing and will not reopen. "We are open for business and will remain open in this location throughout the summer months, while the new building undergoes remodeling," she said. "As always, we are hosting local summer camps, birthday parties, families and kids of all ages." The Treasure Island site is scheduled to be razed sometime next year. -Dan

Disney Quest
Orlando
Florida
I just got back from Orlando 2 weeks ago very unsatisfied. My first time at Disney Quest was in January of 2005 and I was blown away! I am a huge arcade fan and I was in heaven playing all the classic games that I loved so much growning up. I loved it so much that I went a few times that week. I was so let down this time around. Every single game I went to play was not working. Broken buttons, broken joysticks, half dead screens, you name it. It was such a disapointment. For a company that prides itself on quality and taking care of the smallest detail of everything they do they realy dropped the ball with their classic games. If they choose to advertise this great classic game room and get people to pay the $40 to go in they should at least keep the machines playable. If not then I couldn't care less if they tear that place down and put a parking lot there. I was so upset that I wrote a formal complaint to Disney about it. -Byron

I go to Crabtowne probably 2-3 times a week and I can agree that the game room is somewhat of a disappointment.

I just went there and have been enjoying those games for the last couple years. I always play a dollar or so. I loved the arkanoid so much i bought one at auction for my personal collection. The one at the SF is an old tron cabinet that was converted :( It works but has a weird screen problem where the left side is cool but the right side everything gets larger. It used to freeze but I'd reset it by flipping the switch in the back and it would work fine. The roadblasters has a bad pot. in the pedal and intermittantly works.... Centipendes is cool. No paperboy anymore :( I imagine they won't be there much longer. I was there 9/1/06 SAVE THE CLASSICS!!! -Kyle

Took the family here last night. The only game that I played was Defender. And the joystick was loose. PacMania had some monitor color issues.

Ah the Copper Cue used to be my favorite place to play pinball and street fighter II in the early nineties. Row after row of pinball games that were so fun to play for hours...favorites Funhouse, Medieval Madness, Cirqus Voltaire, Whitewater, Tales of the Arabian Nights, Attack From Mars, Cactus Canyon. What killed the place is they went non-smoking! I told them they were crazy (i smoked at the time but still dropped in every now and then) apparently no one else did. Now the games are all broken...they do not fix them and they don't even have Galaga anymore!-mkultra

I cannot believe how bad this place is. I walked through the arcade and noticed a hobo in a dirty white T-shirt and unkempt hair. Needless to say, I found out it was a worker. The pinballs are lined up with 1/2 of them being unlit and out of order. Overall, they were in terrible shape. I tried playing Donkey Kong, then Robotron. Neither had sound and the controls were very loose. It wasn't fun. The arcade was poorly lit with no atmosphere to make up for this. It appeared as a damp, dark backroom of a seedy joint rather than a fun video arcade. I was very disappointed as I got my sights set high to play Joust only to find it out of order. I did enjoy a nice meal at a nearby restaurant and managed to get a waffle ice cream cone at another establishment just across the street so the trip wasn't a total loss. Hopefully someone buys this place and fixes it up!-Stevie

Nickelcade
Ogden
Utah
I recently vacationed in Utah last month and had the opportunity to visit Nickelcade. It is probably the worst arcade I have ever seen. Many of the games have blurry monitors, broken joysticks, etc. There's even an entire row of dead games that I refer to as the graveyard. None of the employees seemed to notice the poor quality of the machines nor did they make any effort to repair them. I went around the back of the building and saw some games that were waiting to be destroyed. As for the game selection, there are very few games here that are worth your time. The only classics I saw here were 1942, Defender, Millipede, Ms. Pac Man, Pole Position, Pole Position II, Rampage, Sea Wolf, The Simpsons, Space Invaders Deluxe, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and Toobin'. 1942 was a converted Xevious cabinet. Defender was in a generic oak cabinet. Pole Position II, Sea Wolf, and Toobin' were all broken. I did not see Cyberball, Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong Junior, Galaga, Gaplus, Mario Bros., Pac-Mania, Space Invaders, Tron, or Xybots at those location. Overall, I would not recommend Nickelcade to anyone who is looking for an arcade with a huge selection of classics.-Zachary Carey

The strange Japanese game I saw last month was Keisatsukan Shinjuku 24ji. It was manufactured in 2000; so it isn't a genuine classic, but it sure was faded like one. There is one in Tampa (Malibu Grand Pirx) that looks much better.-Dan

Tampa Grand Prix
Tampa
Florida
Just found the "new" Grand Prix arcade (with alcohol bar for adults). They have a bunch of new working classics; Centipede/Millipede/Missile Command/Bowling, Ms. Pac-Man/Galaga - Class Of 1981, Donkey Kong/Donkey Kong Junior/Mario Bros. and Joust/Robotron: 2084. Doubled the high score on Joust; this is the best working Joust I've played in a long time. The bowling combo has the same rightward screen shift as the one in the Hub Bar in downtown Tampa; must be an inherent problem. There are other games such as Tekken II, Time Crisis II and Time Crisis III (both Crisis have duel screens). There is also an interesting Konami shooting game (circu 2000) I saw in the "Famous" Pub and Sports Palace in Atlanta, Georgia; it is called The Keisatsukan Shinjuku 24ji. The Ms Pac-man in the other Malibu arcade wasn't working. The only pinball in new the Malibu arcade was a Stern Elvis machine. All in all, though, the Grand Prix arcade has a nice retro feel. I highly recommend it.-Anonymous

I know some of the games were not up to par but you dont realize every game problem when you are 1 of 3 yes i said 3 techs in the building at any given time. It was dificult working there when you had to improvise parts for games especially D.D.R. The company was trying a new concept in orlando and it was working. I t was woking well. Point orlando let Namco out of a 20 million $ lease if they would close the doors on a 11 Million $ building. you do the math.

Nickel City
San Jose

Yes there used to be 3 nickel cities in San Jose, and one in San Diego, (but 2 of the San Jose ones closed down (including this "E. Capitol Expressway" one) but there remains the 'Branham Lane' one. Its the "Camden Ave." exit off highway 85. If you're coming from SF, [either via 280 or 101], then take the 85-south juction, drive about 10 minutes, and you'll see Camden.. If you're coming from south then I guess the best way to go is to take 680-south which becomes 280-south.. then juction into 85-south, and once again after about 10 minutes take Camden exit! Its right on the corner after the VTA Bus/Bart parking lot.. you'll see the El Pollo Loco! By the way this Nickel City is also by Capitol Expressway though techniqually it is of the "W.Capitol" variety.. Please support Nickel City! $2 to get thru the door, and a lot of free classic games.. the newer games include: Cruisin Exotica, The Fast & The Furious, Wangan Midnight: Midnight Tune (#1, not the sequel with card tuning), 18-Wheeler: American Pro Trucker, Crazy Taxi, Jambo! Safari, Time Crisis 3, Konami's Police 911, Arctic Thunder, Power Stone 2, Sega (2004-ish) Olympics & MLB games ..etc.. i forget.. the classics include: Paperboy, Rampart, Asteriods, The Simpsons, G-Loc, Blood Brothers, 92-94ish Soccer & Baseball games, etc!! Dancing games include Para-para and DDR (dunno what ver.) Plently of 2d fighters.. also.. GOOD NIGHT, Please check it out, I dont want the only nearby arcade to die!-Viva SEGA

It doesn't have much classics, but it does have 2 of those arcade emulators featuring about 60 games.. starting with 1942 and ending with Street Fighter 2. Games I can think of include: IntD: 3rd Stage (4 cabinets, linked 2vs2), Maximum Tune 2 (2 cabinets linked), Need for Speed (that new one), Rush 2049, Time Crisis 4, Silent Scope, Sega's Ghost Squad, SVC: Choas, Capcom Fighter's Jam, Soul Calibur 2?3?, Tekken 5, Tekken Tag Tournament, Capcom vs Snk 2, 2 or 3 Street Fighter (of the hard core variety.. Alpha 3 era, that I hate because of the difficulty), King of Fighters (99?), 2 DDR's.., Beatmania 2 DX 11th Style, Guitar Freaks, DrumMania, Super Puzzle Fighter 2, Tetris, Jurassic Park (2?) in-cab-shooter, etc.. *Note, although Sunnyvale has a nice golf-course it does not feature the water-slides of Milpitas.. or the street-racers' gatherings out in the parking lot. -Great Place.

Thanks for the listing. I visited this site and this arcade is open to the public, very clean and on the Sunday I went, no one was there. The Galaga machine was in fine order. The Ms. Pacman machine was the table top variety although the box it was in was actually for Pac Man. The screen looked a bit squished in on the edges, a slight distortion that a minor tweak could take care of, but does not affect playability. The other machines were more modern race games, a couple pinball machines & 2 pool tables. Glad to learn of a new place in my community.-Jason Myers

Carlos, I removed your phone number; please refrain from putting personal phone numbers or e-mail addresses on this forum as it poses a potential security risk. If you click on the "Try to map this location" link, you will find the Mapquest entry for this site where you can get their street/mailing address and their phone number.

Connecticut Golf Land
Vernon Rockville

My last post here was over a year ago, and their manager on duty that night told me that Galaga was sold, which made sense to me since it was not in the arcade on my last several trips. Tonight I went to Connecticut Golfland, and they have Centipede, Ms. Pac-Man (sped-up) ... and Galaga! The big difference in the machine from before is that the shots are sped up, and the machine seems to be on Difficulty C; it was Difficulty D before. Still on three initial ships and a 20K/60K/60K lives setting. I played one game and reached stage "0" scoring about 3.3M; the manager tonight let me stay a little past their closing time, which I appreciate.-Richard M.

Pinball Petes (Near U of M)
Ann Arbor
Michigan
Pete's is one of the best arcades in Michigan. They have all sorts of classics and pinball machines. They have tournaments for those games as well. They have a huge selection of music games like Dance Dance Revolution, Guitar Freaks, Drummania and Para Para Paradise. They have air hockey tables, skill intensive games that spit out tickets and lots of driving games. The assortment of fighting games will make any fan happy, with Marvel vs. SNK, Street Fighter 3rd Strike, Soul Caliber 2 and Tekken 5. There are 4 or 5 pool tables to shoot at and this is all in the heart of downtown Ann Arbor, where many other attractions reside. One of the best places to hang out at night in Michigan. Just bring money.-P Bee

I live abou 1/2 hour away and stop in at Game Land a couple times each year since I've gotten into the hobby of collecting and restoring classic videos and pinballs. I stopped in today, Sunday 07-09 and I couldn't believe it, a service tech was working on High Speed, he had pulled out the cpu/driver board. Hopefully this will be a sign of positive things to come. For at least the past three years there have been paper towels stuffed in the two ramp entrances where you lock balls for muiltiball. The other pins were in sad shape as usual, Addams Family has probably 50% of the GI's out and a display problem, Pinbot had only the GI's on and did not boot yet they still leave it plugged in and turned on, Firepower was unplugged and out of order, Mousen Around is probably the best playable game they have but it is getting worse each time I visit, Have they ever heard of cleaning/ waxing the playfield? Black Knight was missing digits from the displays and locks up and resets while playing. Hopefully that service tech works on more than just High Speed. -Tom's Arcade

I really don't care about your opinion, Just_Pat. The fact is, 100 people can go to this crappy arcade and 99 will be ticked off that they got robbed because the games sucked. You are in the 1% who doesn't care about getting robbed, I suppose. I have common sense on my side, and I challenge anyone to go to this arcade and come back here with an opinion that people are bashing this place as unfounded. Sure, we can log onto here with a different name and fake some BS. But the truth is stronger than that and alot of people who drive more than 1 hr to this place are going to be angry. I warned them not to go while Just_pat lies to you. I know what the place is like, I wonder if this guy has even set foot in here.

Still going on about this... Tell ya what.. Don't play there! I've said this a million times, and I'll say it again. Stop whining! Why go there if all you are going to do is complain about it? Not having a good time, Enchanted Castle is around.. Play some NEWER arcade games (They might just fit the age you are going after).. Oh no! There's a Galaga tournament , and I need to get some practice... get real! If you wanna play games, and don't like this place, go somewhere else.. The business is STILL standing.. and all you do is complain.. GET OVER IT! The games work.. and they are old.. not much more you can do about it. Have fun, and play nice.. for those of you who are trying to work you on your playing skills, download the game, and go to your little bedroom, cry about what just happened in Star Wars, and go to bed..

Hello, I own a lakehouse in Lake Geneva and go to downtown Lake Geneva all the time. Let me just say this... The Gameland arcade has ALWAYS sucked. Bad. For years. From time to time I talk to the manager and offer to buy some games off him(very generous offers too, considering how bad the shape they are all in) but I guess hey just wants to wait until the very end. Which might happen soon. I used to go there every once in a while just to play Metal Slug 3. Now? Well, due to him not giving a crap about his games, it's busted. He doesn't care about his arcade, he doesn't care about quality... It's a mystery why he has been around for all these years.-The Infamous DB

Hey DB, do you think the owner is oblivious to what goes on in there? (Some old guy sitting a lawn chair in Florida for the winter and in WI for a brief month or two in the summer...1/2 that being spent at the casinos?) Or is this guy just an arrogant, ignorant jerk? I'd love to wrest control of this place out the hands of the backwoods jerks that work there and put together a place I'd be proud to be in first...before letting customers in. That's how it should work...but this place is a disgrace. BTW, if you buy those games...look at the back of the cabinet. Their tech guy thought it was saavy to drill 200 holes in the back of many cabinets for better airflow. What a bunch of hacks they hire there!-GalagaFan

The new place is a huge improvement, and the atmosphere is second to none. Growing up, I played at the old Escape arcade in Vancouver, which later turned into Billiards Plus, but this place is bigger, better, badder, and has all the same great games. Well, it's still missing Time Pilot '84, and the BattleZone machine didn't work, but STILL...what a great retro flashback. Keep it up, guys! The new digs look awesome! - T -Tony R

Pt. Pleasant has gone downhill in it's classic games, taking them away and replacing them with games you see in every other arcade.

Gameland
Lake Geneva

Update 5/26/06: Gameland is still a dump! ** Do not listen to the liars below because either they 1) Do not know anything about games or 2) Are employed and/or own Gameland arcade. The fact is this, the place is still a dump. They do not charge admission, however. That policy was probably dumped when their $5/day income went down to $0. Let me give you some info on Lake Geneva itself. It is a nice resorty type town of small shops and "trendy" places near a very deep spring-fed lake. Lots of foot traffic and many parking spaces which require quarters deposited into meters. 25c gets you 30 minutes. So I park down the street (the initial spots outside of the arcade were all taken) and walk to the video arcade. I'm the ONLY PERSON in the place, yet there are many people walking up and down the streets there. I'll cut em' slack as I went on an off-time...but at least I could get to the games I wanted. The person below mentioned games they played... they must not realize that controls are actually supposed to work when you use them: TRON: Spinner seemed better than the last time, not 100%...but closer...But the "fire" button made the light cycles sequence impossible to finish. Tron - 25 cents wasted. Next up: Joust. It appeared OK, until I dropped a coin into it and the screen reset and came up with a messed up screen with vertical lines missing in it. Cheyenne, the game immediately to the left of joust, was stuck on an error message screen. 25 cents wasted without a single play. Next up: Robotron. NO SOUND, very loose controls. I am guessing the last time someone conducted maintenance on the machine was 5 years ago. Last up: Asteroids. It played OK, no problems. Out of $1, 1 game worked, 1 didn't work at all, and 2 worked poorly. That's bad percentages. There were, at minimum, 10 "out of order" signs dispersed on games throughout the location. And Paperboy, which the person below said it played good, was horribly blurry-screened. The controls were loose as were most games with larger driver-styled controls. My god, all it takes is a screw driver most often to fix these things! Gameland is a dump, period. DO NOT LISTEN TO THE PEOPLE BELOW AS THEY ARE LYING TO YOU. DO NOT WASTE GAS MONEY TO GO HERE! I live close by enough and could pick up some nice fudge and ice cream from a local shop and drink down a beer at a bar next to the joint to make the trip (30 miles) worthwhile. I also drive a car that gets 40 MPG so it isn't too bad. If I came here from Chicago, I'd be ticked.-WARNING! WARNING! GAMELAND STILL SUCKS!

It is pretty obvious there are some heavy liars on this thread for Gameland. Perhaps they are the digruntled (and ugly) employee/owners of the place I see moping around everytime I go in there. They will never offer a friendly "hello" as they scurry off to avoid you. There is a woman who is always reading a book there. Nice pick for employees there, Gameland! I love it when she brings her little rugrats around and makes it look like some backwood Arkansas family reunion (Yes, just a trunk of a tree intertwined without any branches) instead of a video game arcade. Well, tonight is the end all of discussion over this as I will have a very indepth review over this dump.-GalagaFan

Galaga Fan & others: I went to Gameland tonight (5/25) and almost didn't because of all the negative reviews on this site. I went in expecting to pay an admission to play garbage, but found the opposite. I think the reviews on this site for Gameland are pretty unfounded. Only had time to play Tron, Paperboy, Track & Field and World Series, which all played just fine. About 90-95% of all games looked functional with bright monitors. And NO admission cost. If you're expecting museum-quality machines, then you'll be disappointed, but everything I saw looked to be in solid, playable shape. But I guess the prima donnas that rip this place probably need showroom-new machines to be satisfied. I'll happily spend hours there. My suggestion is see for yourself and make your own decision. I almost swore off this place because of some of your comments. I'm glad I didn't. -Gamer

Hmm... How long has it been since you've been there? My point being - You still go there. The games are still being played. They might not be great, but none the less, they are still being played. I know there are other arcades out there that have the same, if not, similar games in much better condition ... and also the fact that you know each and every little deatil of what game does not work, shows that you STILL play the games there. I'm also not sure if you can tell the "tone" of my response below, partly because I wasn't speaking, but it was simply stated - not lashing out at anyone. Have fun!-Just_Pat

Hmmm... I guess I said some kind of an insult directed at Pat, and it was deleted. I really don't remember what it was but it definitely was warranted. Why? Look at Pat's tone in his response. I wonder if he set foot in this place or is simply defending it by lashing out at anything he can. The place (Gameland) sucks, period. Pointing out that they are still here 6 months later doesn't change the fact that the place sucks. And I am not saying the place sucks just to be mean. I'd love nothing less than to go past there once a month and drop $10-20 into the classics they have. But, being in the condition they are in... it is just sad. But hey, they are making money so they don't need to do any better...do they, Pat?-Galagafan

I deleted Galagafan's last sentence on his otherwise excellent 5/12 post. I have never been to Gameland, but suspect I would be very disappointed if I went there. I have been to very good classic arcades around the country, with Funspot in NH, the Challenge Arcade in Reading, PA, and Castles 'n' Coasters in Phoenix coming readily to mind. I can't say that all the machines worked perfectly but generally they worked very well and obviously are managed by people who care about their games and their clientele. It is apparent by Galagafan's comments and Tony's comments that Gameland does not keep their games and clientele in the same regard, and that really is sad... As for my deleting of Galagafan's sentence, it involved a bit of namecalling of another forum poster, which really is not acceptable.-RWM

We were up here last night for a friend's birthday. Walking into the game room is very exciting. I haven't been in a place with that many original cabinets since I was in some weird parlor in San Francisco's Chinatown a few years ago. Unfortunately, your excitement quickly takes a turn to disappointment when you see that almost half of the games in each row sits with a blank screen. Some have "out of order" signs taped on them, others just lie dormant. Of the games that are on, good luck finding one with a non-hazed display, calibrated guns, or a properly working coin slot. Pole Position was great fun until I realized that I couldn't shift into high gear due to the broken shifter; I was excited to play Terminator 2: Judgement Day until I realized that I was just shooting at the bottom left of the screen no matter where I shot my gun; I was really psyched on playing one pinball game until I realized I had put in four quarters and still didn't have a credit. At the end of the night, most people were gathered around SF2:CE, the various working pinball machines (Big Hurt & Addams Family were favorites) or wondering why they were getting knocked out by Glass Joe in Punch Out. I'd give it a 6/10 - just don't go expecting all of these games (they are definitely there) to be working.-Jesse

Just_Pat: Play Qix. Oh, you can't see one of the lines because the monitor is 1/2 dead. Play Donkey Kong: NO Sound. Play Robotron: NO Sound. Play Super Monaco GP: Steering Wheel Issues Play Tron: SPINNER JACKED UP and fire button is spotty. Play Centipede: Trackball is messed up. Having old games is great, but having old games in that condition isn't. And just because they are still around doesn't mean they are good. If they bought the building 30 years ago, it is probably paid off. They make money from the renters above it and a few people stop by and play the shoddy games only to be disappointed. If they had to throw down 1.5K a month for rent, they'd last 1/2 a year tops. This place WILL be gone soon enough. The owner will get out of the business and liquidate and move to a nice home along the lake, or down south where the weather is better. And Gameland will become the new Starbucks location that will make about 100X more a year. You are a nut if you think those games are in playable shape. They, and the place, is a disgrace to classic games. [Last sentence deleted as it contained an insult]. -GalagaFan

Lyons Classic Pinball

I'm writing in response to Diagoro's statement who called the Carrolls "hoarders". If you mean that they buy machines on regular basis for their personal collection and to sell, then yes, they are hoarders . If you stopped by LCP even once, you would know that if they could have more of their games available to the public, it would happen. This would include rarities and pristine machines(which I, myself, would never let anyone see- let alone touch). Knowing the owners, they probably would invite you up to their home to show you what they can't squeeze into the shop if you came up more that once or twice. In fact, they are in the process of opening up a video arcade at Oscar Blues so that people will have access to their video collection and they can bring in even more pins to LCP for the public to play. As far as the "buy low, sell high" statement- seems like good business sense to me. The prices of the few machines a year that they sell are not any higher than anyone elses. You get what you pay for and never need to worry about being sold a pile when you're expecting a working machine, they would simply never do that. Nobody is ever forced to buy something that they don't want. Imagine that, honest business practices. Plus the actual cost to keep all of the machines at LCP running 100% as often as possible eats up tons of cash between parts and techs. Profit margines are thin at best. The owners of LCP are, first and foremost, collectors who want to share their fantastic toys with anyone who want to come and play or talk pinball/ video- period. This is a statement of fact and not open to dispute, ask anyone who has ever been there for more that 15 minutes. Spraying people you don't know and busting on the best place in the state to play pinball, really? -Castle Rock Pinball

Great store, this is owned by the guy who runs the digital press website.

He also has an atari jaguar and sega dreamcast kiosk. If you like classic console games at all I suggest you at least check it out.

I received the worst service ever. My friends and I went there and we were told the wait would be 20 minutes and we agreed to have our name written on the list and 20 minutes went by and the host seats his friends and completely disregards us. At this point, we are now hungry and I ask how much longer it will be before we are seated. The host tells me not much longer and then I ask about the group that just sat and he says 'oh, they were on the list' and points to a random name on the list that says for 2 people, as if that just explains it away. So go at your own risk and watch for the stupid high school hosts who will sit their friends before you regardless of who came first.-CT

Crab Towne has been there forever it seems. The original owners were about the friendliest people a person could meet. It use to be open 24 hours a day. I have only the fondest memories of that wonderful place. The seafood use to be top of the line, only to be outdone by the prices. I would stop in once every couple of years through the 1990's and the owners would always remember my name. I haven't been there since it was renovated. I am wondering if the family still owns and operates it like they have for the past 35 years or so... Now that I have found out it's open, I will go back. I miss it. Oh, by the way the games were so awesome. Crab Towne started putting the games in around 1978, starting with pac-man. It grew like crazy and the rest is history. If the original family is still operating the place, I recommend anyone to stop in and have seafood, some beer and play the game machines, oh and get to meet some of the nicest people on this planet. -R.

I wish anyone who wants to play these machines a lot of luck finding them or even being allowed to access them. They are located in "Lori's Teen Center" on the 3rd floor of the yellow wing. Unfortuatley, you have to go through security and a couple different sets of elevators, as well as a couple different nurse stations in order to get to this place. The class of 1981 machine is on freeplay, while the others are a quarter. This place is inteded for teenage patients only, but if you have a little brother or sister staying in the hospital, this is a good place to hang out for a few minutes while they are in closed door meetings with the doctor.-ABR

Although possible to get to these machines without buying a ticket to a movie, it really makes the management of the theater angry. They will often have a cop at the entrance making sure you get a ticket before heading to the games. The machine is $.50 ($.25 to continue) Also of interest is an old school clean sweep crane machine, the kind with the blinking lights on the front and the red/white picture of that guy in the janitors cap on the side rushing to sweep up a mess.-ABR

York
Pennsylvania
I was originally born and raised in York. My wife and I moved to Florida in April of 2000. We had just sold our house here, and are coming back to York in a few weeks. I personally can't wait. We have been back to York a few times in the 6 years we have lived here and every time we head back "home",I cant wait to get to Mack's for a pork barbecue and french fry. I guess what I am trying to say is Mack's is truly a York county icon along with Martin's chips, the York Fair, etc. It takes being away to truly miss the things that were a part of your life. Don't change a thing-- we all need something "to come home to."-Michael Merica

Gameland
Lake Geneva
Wisconsin
You have to know this place to realize it isn't worth $1 much less whatever they are charging people to get into. Hell, it wasn't worth the $1 in tokens because 50% of the machines are messed up and do not play well. Centipede, Tron, and Robotron ...great games... should have "out of order" signs on them for their lousy controls. I bet a basic cleaning of the contacts would solve most of the problems, but they cannot do this. They are looking for someone to fix their games (they probably want to pay them in week old popcorn or something). The sad thing is, as the lake geneva local can probably agree with, is that this is in an AWESOME location right near the lake with heavy, heavy foot traffic all summer long. I think they USED to sell fudge and other crap out the side window, and they probably don't do much business now. It sucks. Hints to the owner: BUY A EFFIN' SLURPEE/ICEE MACHINE or offer sno-cones (shaved ice) in the summer. Sell FOUNTAIN SODAS out your front window along with a variety of other snacks that anyone walking around the beach might care to partake in. GET RID of your crappy games that are taking up space. The "cooler" with the stuffed animal "prizes" in them is terribly tacky and looks terrible. OPEN your bathroom to the public... you might get a sale or two for god's sake, from the walk in traffic. Install a low-water use urinal and toilet if you are worried about utility costs. A blow dryer for drying hands and buy your hand soap at the dollar store. Sell games that suck that will still make money to some buyer, but nobody plays (like that giant X-men game that takes up 2 spaces). Replace it with Gauntlet. I bet you will still have money left over from a move like this, and Gauntlet will get many plays more than X-Men ever will. Or how about this idea? SHUT YOUR DOORS AND SELL THE GAMES ON EBAY and get out of the business. You don't care about the games, you don't care about the people who go into your store (as your "GO TO HELL, NO REFUND" signs plastered all over make this very obvious). This place needs a "under new management" sign and people who hope to put an effort into these games and this will, in turn, start producing cash like you haven't seen in 10 years. -Galagafan

The Magic Johnson theater at Blvd at Cap Centre is a tragedy waiting to happen. The fact that the theater seating design present a hazard in the event of a fire or other emergency.

Washington D.C.
Old Post office Pavillion (12 st and Pennsylvania Ave NW) is a tiny mall that has mostly locally owned merchants, the only chain store I noticed was Ben and Jerry's. But there's really only about 10-15 stores, and a food court. In the food court is a place called "Capital Arcade" which is where this machine is. There isn't much in the arcade, about 10 machines. You have to pass through metal detectors to enter the mall. -ABR

Hello, First off, let me be the first to say, as first and foremost... a 35 yr old GAME FAN and pinball player, I am VERY sorry that ANYONE, and I mean ANYONE, would have to now ahem... PAY? To get into this dive... what a joke. Those of you from chicagoland know of JUST GAMES, some were cleaner than others, the one we frequented could have had surgery done in the middle of the well layed out, well maintained atmostphere. This establishment is not even a goldmine being milked, it needs to be put out of business for lack of consideration to any and all that live here, visit here, and dare I say, PAY? TO GET IN? Cover charge for what.... you would think this place is a peep show establishment being the dank pit that it is. It's amazing it lasted this long, I moved up here more than 6 years ago and to my amazement, the hole hasn't filled with water yet, maybe this will be our lucky year. Again, as an LG resident, and avid game player, ( not the new console crapola ) but a quarter dumping spaz that just wanted another round of cabal, I am sorry that this place isn't a warehouse yet. Kudos and game on.-LAKE GENEVA RESIDENT

I think most of the places that have this many classic machines can hardly afford to stay afloat. I have to pay $5 in Tampa Bay to get into the nearest large arcade with classics, and I'm happy to pay it, since classic arcades are EXTREMELY RARE now, and sadly unpopular for the masses. The second closes large arcade with classic machines in Orlando costs $35, and they were hardly maintaining those machines last time I went. Please enjoy what's left. Apparently, it costs thousands to refurbish a fleet of classic machines and more (above the quarters) to maintain them. What we need are official hybrid machines that cost less to build and maintain. And, yes it pisses me off having to pay $35 per person to play poorly maintained machines. Trying to recapture the past is even more frustrating. Unfortunately, I think all our bitching does is close more arcades and remove more classics. Oh! by the way, a company name Excalibur is selling a cool handheld arcade version of Frogger with a joystick.-Dan

Arcade (By Chalet Theater & Mini Golf)
Wisconsin Dells

That Cinema closed down years ago, and the Cheese Chalet was completely remodelled after they had a fire in the honkey-tonk bar area. The Mini Golf course has been ripped out and replaced with a miniture-town styled mini-mall. I'm pretty sure this place doesn't exist anymore. Sorry guys. You might try the arcade in the Kalahari Resort. I think it still has Galaga and Primal Rage. The new McDonalds across from the Lower Dells Boat Tours also had a Galaga the last time I was in there. Moose Jaw has a combo Galaga/Pacman machine in their downstairs bar, but it was kind of beat up the last time I saw it.-Wisc. Dells Citizen

Cici's Pizza is serviced by Game Room Sales and Service (http://www.gameroomservices.com) located at 1135 Starkey Road in Largo, Florida 33771.

It is sad when one HOPES this place goes under, but today I walked away from the front doors feeling this exact way. Posted on a sign: $2 adults, $1 children (Admission) Same crappy games, and now one has to pay to enter the dump. I would have to agree with the below post: this place has 6 months left to live. If you have money, get ready to buy these machines when they hit the market...but be ready, they'll all need work. What a potential goldmine this place is: Awesome location (street traffic galore) but owned by one ignorant SOB who knows nothing of how to run a business. They are suckering people out of $2 at the door so at least they get SOMETHING... I hope the owner of this establishment reads this and puts a closed sign on the door immediately: YOUR PLACE SUCKS and when a true classic game fan is telling you this, it is time for you to sell your crap and retire. If there is a forgiving God, perhaps he'll let you live out the rest of your days in peace instead of punish you for your misdeeds in the classic game world.-GalagaFan

This is located in the old Dream Machine arcade (in the food court). I'm not sure when the place changed names, a sign in the arcade said "We won't accept Dream Machine Tickets after Jan. 1 2005" which would indicate that the name change occured about a year ago, however, the website of both Dream Machine and Apple Blossom Mall still list it as a Dream Machine (the directories in the mall list it as Planet Fun). The game is 2 tokens. This place is so much like the one at Potomac Mills Mall in Woodbridge, VA, because it has a bunch of games (and a redemption counter) against the wall, but a nice big open space in the middle of the room, plenty of room for more!-ABR

The second is on 50 Worcester Road (route 9) on the Framingham + Natick town line, headed eastbound (torwards boston). This one switches games a lot. On top of having arcade games, they have pinball, skee ball, laser tag, and some other games. Redemption counter with prizes. You should probably call first for a game lineup. Make sure to hit them both, since they're only 5 minutes apart!

The Nickel Nickel in Upland has changed to a "Token Token" (or that's what we call it) because you now have to purchase tokens ($0.25 each) so it's pretty much turned into a Boomers!, but it still has some free games and I think the entry fee is $2.50.-Erik

This is a pleasant place with an indoor eatery and mini-golf course in the center. Not very retro really, but it is nice and bright inside. There is a Ms. Pac-man/Galaga class of 81 next to a nice original Ms Pac-man and a Galaga with a washed out display. There is an original After Burner cabinet with a washed out display. There is also a non-working Air Wolf (hey, they haven't fixed it in 3 months; maybe they'll sell it to a fan). There are also 4 pinball machines and a few newer classic arcade machines that I don't recall. There is a phone number, directions, a photo of the colorful outside mural and a phone number at http://cityguide.aol.com/tampabay/visitorsguide/venue.adp?vid=123895-Dan

Truly amazing place....its like stepping back into time into the good ole' 80's and seeing and playing these classic games and hearing the 80's music and 80's videos they project on one of the arcade walls. I go every friday, and the owner is 2 years older than me and has become my good friend. Possible new games on the way include Donkey kong,Qbert,Shinobi, Robotron,Pacman,Galaxian, to name a few. (he has located these games, but hasnt finished negotiating on prices) Absolutly awesome place and a dream come true for the die hard 80's arcade fanatics like myself!! Long live the 80's!-Scott

There is an interesting 1998 article about Disney Quest at http://www.wave-report.com/other-html-files/Disneyquest1.htm It talks about "two individuals who are the master minds behind the concept from the beginning - Joe DiNunzio and Mike Lang..." and "Credit should also go to Mel Bibo the General Manager of DisneyQuest and to Kent Mitchell the General Manager at the Orlando facility." I wish I could figure out how to contact these folks. I wonder if they all know that the classic arcade games are being neglected at Orlando's Disney Quest.-Dan

Pak Mann Arcade (CLOSED)
Pasadena
California
Not only has Pak Mann closed, the new business in its place, a furniture store, it too is closing and going out of business... Ha ha, the irony. I think it is the location, this part of Pasadena is pretty dead, hardly any pedestrian traffic besides PCC people. Not to mention the fact that the neighborhood itself is ghetto and economically depressed doesn't help. Also, this probably isn't the right or best place for this, but I think Pak Mann was a horrible arcade. It was super noisy, very dirty, had poorly kept machines, and worst of all, lots of bad people. How bad? Prostitutes (even during the day hours), drug dealers (in the back parking lot), and gang members. Also, parking in the back lot is like an invitation to get your car broken into, hit and run, or vandalized. I also hated the bad customer service this arcade had. If something ate your quarter, too bad. Try to complain about a broken game, too bad. You want to change your $10 bill for $2.00 in quarters? Too bad, the lowest denominations they give is $3.00 in quarters. Too bad. I am very glad this arcade died as this place was a crime magnet and an eyesore.-Akira-kun

Disney Quest
Orlando
Florida
Just got back from Disney Quest ($36.21 at the door). Most of the classic games are not being properly maintained. There ARE many working classic games, and they look nostalgically impressive from a distance. I did find Frontline, but the spinner spring/gunner switch is broken. There absolutely is no Tempest. Many classic arcade game 4-way joysticks and firing buttons are broken. Anyway, I think if the management understood that parents will choose Disney Quest over other arcades because Disney Quest claims to have classic arcade games and if the classic arcade games are not working or look like crap, that is more depressing to the parents than not finding any classic games at all, because it directly reminds you of how very old you are, and you don't go back to Disney Quest or bring your kids back to Disney Quest and the business goes out of business like Pac-Man Cafe (yes, Disney Quest could go out of business because they don't have classic arcade games). I don't understand why Disney Quest doesn't COMPLETELY renovate and maintain their classic machines as a priority to motivate parents to bring their kids back over and over again, so that Disney Quest can stay in business. BTW, what is left of Pac-Man Cafe in Orlando looks pathetic (not associated with Disney Quest). The Pac-Man statue is gone, but the doors and windows still have pac-man characters frosted into them.-Dan

I never seen this many classic fully functioning games in one place since I went to the arcade in SF my brother worked at in mid-80's. There are even tons of mechanical games I never seen before. Sure didn't expect some sleepy mt. tourist town to have all this! There are multiple indoor rooms and games crammed everywhere they could find outside too.

As Dave stated on 7/29, this is a good-sized arcade on two levels.

In my opinion, the touch-screen machines (basically the Megatouch game you see in bars) are a bit pricey at $1 a pop. At least that was the price the last time I played them.-Richard M.

The Game Gallery
Tampa

I was kinda' put off by these folks (they were aloof) when I went in a couple of years back. I tend to suspect businesses that treat you badly when you go in of being money launderers, I mean people who have a fake legitimate business that is a front for some other illegal operation. I’ve been thinking about the Game Gallery though, and I think they are probably an exception to that suspicion. First of all, they are in a rather high crime area, so they have to be careful with their potential customers. Secondly, I think their main customers are probably rich snotty people, bars, lounges and hotels, all hard-to-please clients. They probably have all these kids and adults who never grew up (present company excluded) who come in time after time with no intention of buying anything who just want to play classic games for free (maybe misled some by this site). After the thousandth time, it probably got old. That is probably why they took all they’re good games off their showroom. Why they don’t open up an arcade with all they’re surplus equipment to solve this problem, I’ll never understand, but I think they should be given a little slack. I am thinking very seriously about purchasing one of their combo units; it seems like a good deal.-Dan

Jillys is one of the last major non-redemption arcades left in the country! Also, a lower comment mentioned the former Herman's Arcade in Pt. Pleasant, NJ. Jill, one of the owner's of Jilly's Arcade is the grand-daughter of Herman Bakerman, the original owner of Hermans Arcade and Pier now called Jenkinson's in Pt. Pleasant!

It's right along I-495 in Prince George's county. If taking the metro, it's at the Largo Town Center Station on the Blue Line. Be wary of the change machine I put $1 in and it gave me a quarter.

They do have an "UltraCade" system which has a decent selection of old-arcade games that you can choose from. Also got in the Donkey Kong/Donkey Kong Jr./Mario Brothers 3 in 1 arcade game. If they just would get some more pinball games like the new "Nascaar" Pin that would be great!!-Mark

I now have the PCB's to the games Shadow Dancer, and Tecmo Knight, and this is likely, and finally it for my arcade collection, as I now have 50 games total. However, there's always a chance that I may change my mind (again), and as usual, if I do happen to get any other arcade games, I'll be sure to let you all here know. Take care everyone.-Joe

South Of The Border
Dillon
South Carolina
South of the Border (aka Pedro Land) is a cheesy tourist trap on I-95 right on the border of North Carolina and South Carolina. This place is really run down and the machines in the arcades are really beat up. What's more is that the arcades are not being utilized to their full potential (lotsa empty space). There is a Class of 1981 machine located in the Monte Carlo Arcade. Monte Carlo is on the left side of the street if coming from I-95, and El Toro arcade is on the right. There might have been a Class of 1981 in the El Toro arcade, I can't remember. Silver arcade is closed.-ABR

This was my first time at Dave & Busters. I played the Donkey Kong/Donkey Kong Jr/Mario Bros game. Gameplay w/ the joystick is excellent. Only problem w/ playing these games is that you can't see your score on the display. The Millipede game that I played is set for bonus every 20000 points instead of the 15000 that I'm used to. I can't complain. Definitely plan on coming back. -Rich D

This place is a typical laundromat. It's not all that great for playing games, since Ms. Pac-Man has terrible screen burn and its angle against the sun makes seeing the dots you've eaten near impossible, so you have to remember which ones you've eaten or you'll go in circles forever. Also, part of the display on the Namco Classics Vol. 2 machine is messed up, but it's still pretty fun to play. The Namco Classics Vol. 2 machine is in Japanese (the games aren't, but the title screen for the machine's interface itself is).-Mike Waters

Went there Sunday. It is right across from the public beach and in the same building as a Subway with toasted sandwiches. Very cool! They had a nice Pacmania; forgot what a cool marque! Could not find Asteroids or Donkey Kong Junior, but there was a Donky Kong. There was a Galaga, but no Galaga 3. I don't recall seeing the Missile Command, but there was a Mr. Do!, Ms. Pac-Man and Pac-Man. They also had a Defender and an After Burner. I don't know if the fire button was broken on After Burner or if I forgot how to or when to fire. Anyway, it was a nice looking cabinet. There was also a nice Centipede and an old Tetris. Tokens were a quarter.-Dan

This place is fun, because you can play for hours for just a few dollars. Most games only cost a nickel so its a blast. It used to be alot better, but lately the games are poorly maintained and many of your favorites are probably broken or absent. The worst part is that you spend alot of nickels on games that dont work and its a hastle to have to hunt down the employees to get a refund. Still, I don't know many other places where you can find so many cool games under one roof.-Kemmer

Went there Sunday. Even though there is a sign out front that says Edgewater Cleaners, the laundrymat has a sign on the side calling itself the Fun Wash Laundromat. Got pictures (I'll reference them later). The Ms Pac-man has no sound and is strange, with an odd PCB, with sprites that pass through odd shaped walls. It is in an original Ms. Pac-man cabinet. The Ms Pacman is next to an original Galaga with a very faded monitor. The Centipede is an original cabinet that plays good, but it has birds instead of insects (like one that was once in Funspot in New Hampshire). The Pole Position looks and works great. It is next to a Mortal Kombat II cabinet and a Gottlieb Stargate Pinball Machine. -Dan

It was set to standard (slow) play, which is really strange in a way, yet truly retro.-Dan

Joe's Private Arcade

Dan, the reason why only two games are listed on the main page is because while I have 47 arcade games (soon to be 48, since I am getting yet another PCB next week, and I will reveal what game it is when I get it) I only actually have two arcade machines, which are the ones listed above. All of my Jamma games are played in my Double Dragon II- The Revenge Cabinet, while both Punch-Out, and Super Punch-Out are played in the Punch-Out Machine. When I first started collecting arcade games, Tony P. said that he only accepted actual arcade machines from private home collections (which he no longer accepts anymore either), but not arcade PCB's. I hope this clears everything up that you wanted to know, and why only two of the many arcade games I have are actually listed. Feel free to drop another comment here, or just e-mail Tony P. if you feel you need any further info regarding this matter. -Joe

I know I have said in the past that my arcade collection was done, only to get more games afterwords, and since there's more games I may end up getting, I won't list my collection as "completed" again, due to the fact that I just might end up getting other arcade games/PCB's in the future.

Yes, this place is a dump and is not kept up. I wonder who the owner is and what the heck he does to let the place get out of hand like that... Very sad! This place has awesome potential (lots of visitors!) but it falls flat. Lots of classics, but many don't even have sound you can hear and the controls are busted. Tron is there, it works...kind of. The spinner is messed up and needs probably only a simple cleaning and one of the fire buttons goes in and out...a simple fix as well. There is a ms.pac-man clone that is "4 quarters!" Pathetic. The signs saying "no bathroom for public use" and "screw you, no refunds" are tacky. Like the message below, they cannot legally do this but they try to scare the average person into compliance knowing they won't be taken to court over 25c or a buck. Many small cabaret models in the front (most lacking sound) containing classics that could easily be sold off and replaced with full-sized models of the more popular titles... Donkey Kong? Pac-Man? Robotron? All great titles, but on a mini screen they lack alot. What a waste. I'd love to be able to get in there and partner up with the owner and make some changes for the better. That basketball game is a waste of space in there as well...nothing but junk metal taking up space you can put 3 classic machines in. Qix is faded (enemy disappears at times...kind of hard to play that way!), centipede is jacked up and worthless to control as well as many others. The gas pedal on the Pole Position cockpit is shot as well...maybe the shifter, too. Bad, bad junk that is not kept up.-Galagafan

They have added a Donkey Kong/Donkey Kong Jr./Mario Bros. machine which should be of interest to classic gamers.-Richard M.

Disney Quest
Orlando

Went back to Disney Quest again yesterday. Wasn't able to stay as long as I wanted, but it was still a very positive and enjoyable place to be, and I got some pictures. I noticed that Disney Quest has Dragon's Lair. Actually I never played that before. It was difficult for me to play. I am looking forward to learning how to play Dragon's Lair when I buy the software. As a persistant childhood fantasy, I always wanted all the video games on the Silver Spoons set. I plan to have all those games working in one arcade cabinet I will eventually build. I understand the Silver Spoons set had an Asteroids Deluxe, Dragon's Lair, Gorf, Tempest and a mini Pac-Man cabinet. There is something online about Swamp Wars, but I think that was a TRS 80 game. Disney Quest does have Gorf, which is a 2nd generation Space Invaders game. I played that yesterday. I also played a little Space Invaders. As I've written before, Disney Quest DOES NOT have Tempest, a must-play excellent game. Speaking of Vector-based games, Disney Quest DOES HAVE the sit down cockpit style Star Wars game. I didn't get to play it yesterday, but I remember enjoying it. I had forgotten Star Wars had a steering wheel. I wondered what was missing in my emulated version. That's all. Back to you Tony. Thank you again for this website.-Dan

The Ms Pac-man sprites are finally looking good. Had fun beating the high score yesterday. The Ms Pac-man/Galaga machine I play at The Hub Bar next to Tampa Theatre in downtown Tampa always has the same ridiculously high score. I also had fun at Tampa Lanes playing an Austin Powers pinball machine. They have a nice little selection of pinball machines too. Anyway, I can't believe Tampa doesn't have one retro gameroom where 80's people can go to relive their youth. Why isn't there one eccentric millionaire who builds an old fashioned well-maintained arcade where we can go to just for the fun of it? Thank goodness for Disney Quest in Orlando. Please, somebody build a classic arcade open to the public in Tampa!-Dan

Was finally able to get out there. Took the kids for 7 hours. They loved it, even though I went there to play classic games and they thought it would be a musty museum. We were all pleasantly surprised by the beautiful building and all its games. The kids designed their own roller coaster and we rode it. I still got slightly sick. I can't even ride a virtual roller coaster any more. Although I played many classic games, my favorite experience was Pirates of the Carribean, standing on a realistic ship deck stearing through beautiful 3D virtual waters while the kids used cannons to blow up boats for their bounty. We were sunk both times at the end. I'm wondering if the game is winnable though I enjoyed sinking under water in 3D. Anyway, I played Centipede, Millipede, Frogger (2 versions), Pac Man, Super Pac Man, Galaga, Galactaca, Battle Zone (THAT'S HOW IT LOOKED! WOW!), Space Invaders, Burger Time (never played that in an arcade, cool!), Gorf, Defender, Front Line, Berzerk, Tron, Joust (finally, the original!), Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong Junior, Defender, Arkanoid, Missile Command, Tron & Zaxxon. I wish they had Tempest & Tetris, but that's okay. Good Cheesecake at the Cheesecake Factory (expensive, I guess).-Dan

On my last visit there I saw a machine to the right of Ms. Pac-Man/Galaga which combines Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong Jr., and Mario Brothers. Another Namco remake of classic titles from the past. I played a couple DK and DKjr games and played them as ineptly as ever, but the gameplay was reminiscent of the classic titles as far as I could tell.-Richard M.

Fantasy Raceways
Rochester
New York
Fantasy Raceways is a great place for running slot cars and playing classic arcade games. I'm a 40+ year old kid who's loved arcades and amusement games my whole life. Fantasy Raceways has a great slot car track and an excellent selection of classic videos, newer videos, and pinball machines in great shape! Classic games include Space Invaders, Ms Pacman, Missile Command, Galaga, Tempest, Centipede, Stargate, Robitron, and Tron to name a few, plus countless driving games. Me and my girlfriend, a 29+ year old kid, spent 2 hours there and had a blast! All for a very reasonable amount of money. I highly recommend this place for those who like to have fun! It has a very nice atmosphere. There were lots of adults, families, and kids having fun! Just as we were leaving a birthday party was arriving and the kids were astonished with the place! -Paul R

I went here on 1-23-05. Most games are .25 a play or 5 nickels. The Classic games are free but there weren't too many. Ms. Pac Man, Galaga, and Frogger were the only ones in the designated "free" zone that I played. They did have Street Fighter 2 and TMNT for .25 a play. A big highlight for me was that the newest Star Wars Trilogy sit down was there for .25 a play along with House of Dead I and II (Stand Up) also at .25 a play.-Wongojack

I suspect that the person who submitted this place meant the Treehouse Arcade; the Fox Arcade closed this past summer. I have not visited Foxwoods in about three months, but will make another trip sometime when it's not below zero or snowing heavily or icy -- in other words, sometime in May. ;-) Anyway I highly question this being a new site but will visit again so I know for sure. Also, I was not able to find any reference to this arcade from the web link on this page. This link seems to just show general tourist attractions for Southeast Connecticut and is not specific to any one place.-Richard M.

The Ms. Pacman sprites are still messed up. Enjoy Joust on the multiarcade. The Astroids cabinet game (faded as it may be) is working again. There is an Astroids game in the same multiarcade cabinet as the Joust if you want a more original feel. On an unrealated subject (yet still classic arcade): Don't buy the new handheld Frogger joystick. It has bad music and sound effects that are nothing like the original. I mean, why buy (why build and sell?) a "classic" frogger games if the music and sound effects are wrong? The sound was 70% of the game, right?-Dan

Shore Mall
Egg Harbor Township
New Jersey
I made my first visit to this arcade in a while, and despite the fact that it's now only down to one classic game, it has gotten better than it was the last time I visited it. For starters, this arcade has been slightly expanded, and now has more good newer games in it, including The Ocean Hunter, which is one of my favorite newer games. There's now some sports games in the back that spew out tickets that you can play, such as a basketball, football, and a golf game just to name the ones I remember, as well as an air hockey table, and a bubble hockey game (which of course do not give out tickets). Another good thing is that this arcade still retains the dark atmosphere that most mall arcades had in the 80's and early 90's, despite now having mostly newer games. Even though this place doesn't have a lot of classics in it like it used to, at least I can now say that it's worth a visit once again, since it's got some fun newer games (for low prices I must say), and the sports games I mentioned earlier, which can at least keep you busy for a short while. If anyone in the South Jersey area is looking for a good arcade to go to, this surely is one that I highly recommend once again.-Joe

Hollywood Arcade
Ocean City
New Jersey
This arcade in my opinion is now the best arcade in Ocean City I think (thanks to Jillys, since they got rid of most of their classics), and this one has a good mix of old and new games. This arcade actually might have more classics not listed here that I might have missed, but the ones they do have are great ones I think. Another advantage about this arcade is that it's much cleaner than Jillys (and the other arcades I visited in Ocean City), and I think the Hollywood Arcade is just one of those arcades that would please almost any gamer. I highly recommend a visit to this arcade for anybody who ever goes to Ocean City New Jersey.-Joe

Jillys
Ocean City
New Jersey
Well I wanted to start with some new comments on the good arcades in NJ that I revisited this summer, and I figured Jillys would be a good start. Unfortunately, I no longer consider this to be the best arcade in Ocean City, because their list of classics has shrunk. They are now down to the following classics listed, which is terrible, because this arcade was once a great place to find classic games, but that's sadly so longer the case. The classics they do have here, are ones that you can easily find at any other arcade, which means that they're nothing speicial in my opinion. Jillys is still a good arcade to visit I think, and does have some decent new games, but it's surely not as good as it once was. Too bad.-Joe
2004-10-01
Boardwalk The Casino Arcade
Wildwood
New Jersey
Here's yet another arcade I made another visit to this summer, but despite being the best arcade in Wildwood, it has many downsides. The games they have here seem to be in better shape than they were last summer, but I did notice a few games (I can't remember which ones) not working too good, or at all, and it's still amazing that most, if not all of the games they have here are at least 50 cents, which is a tragedy. The biggest downfall about this arcade I feel is the owner who I happened to run into the last time I came here, and is a real jerk. Those of you who have visited this arcade before who may have ran into him should know why he is such a loser, and if you seem him, get out at all costs! Despite the downfalls I mentioned, I still think this is the #1 arcade in Wildwood (even though that's not saying a whole lot in my opinion), and at least it's clean with an okay atmosphere, and has it's share of fine classics as you see. I still recommended this arcade to anyone who visits Wildwood, despite it's many flaws. A change of ownership, and better maintaining of it's games sure wouldn't hurt it though!-Joe

The Astroids game is all wacked out; the horizontal scan has the game on the half right side of the screen, but looks like an original cabinet. The Ms Pac-Man game monitor and cabinet are good, but the colors are going bad and it has a malformed Ms Pac-man sprite; it also has a fast chip. Tampa Lanes has a multi-arcade game (may be UltraArcade or Arcade Legends) with a lot of oldies like Defender, Joust and I think Astroids. The Joust played very well, but the monitor is getting old. I didn't check out the WWF Wrestlefest game.-Dan

Fun Station USA has a website at www.funstationusa.com. They mention having two locations - one in Lynbrook, NY and the other in Danbury, CT. No mention of any such place in New Milford. So I suspect that the person who submitted the place to Tony entered the town name erroneously. Yesterday I visited the place in Danbury. I saw Teenaged Mutant Ninja Turtles and The Simpsons; I did not see Ms. Pac-Man/Galaga. However, I did see a Pac-Mania machine and a Pac-Man Plus game (which was in a faded Ms. Pac-Man cabinet.) for a total of four classic games.-Richard M.

On the Ms. Pac-Man/Galaga machine, Ms. Pac-Man is now sped-up. With five initial lives, a bonus at 10K, and the long blue-time setting, you won't find an easier Ms. Pac-Man to play. Only problem is that the joystick "sticks" occasionally. Not a big problem yet but be aware of it. The machine has been moved to a more spacious part of this tiny arcade so you get fewer distractions from people whamming into you.-Richard M.

On recent travels through Reno, Nevada, I came across the Speak Easy Hotel. I found a cocktail-table game loaded with classics. Everything is as listed above accept for the Pac-Man on the machine. It appears to be a modified Pac because everything was in hyper-speed. One thing I found great about this table-emulation thing was that it gave me some free credits somehow. Free credits are always great! While there is no gambling, the Speak Easy had a nice quiet environment, and to keep you from searching, the game is found in the hotel lobby.-Agent Ruen One

Treehouse Arcade
Ledyard
Connecticut
All classic games here take tokens. When these games were at the Fox Arcade they took quarters. Centipede/Millipede/Missile Command is one token per play, the others are two tokens, although Ms. Pac-Man/Galaga is one token to continue. Galaga's fire button is a little flakey, working 90-95% of the time and then not working when I really need it to. But I did succeed in maxing out the scores on that game; until management resets the scores it is no longer possible to enter initials for Galaga.-Richard M.

Suds & Such
Brandenburg
Kentucky
This place is your typical laundromat, the games are lined up right by the door, and they also have 2 pinball machines next to the video games. My only real quirk about the experience here is that the first player joystick on Final Fight is messed up. Many times, I couldn't move Haggar to the right unless I moves the joystick left and then right, and even that didn't always work. I also couldn't move my character diagonally to the right, but it was great to see Final Fight there nonetheless, since it had been so long since I'd seen it in arcade form. I don't know how well the Ms. Pac-Man machine works, but Capcom Bowling works great. The Ms. Pac-Man machine is an obvious conversion, originally a Pac-Man cabinet, with just the marquee changed along with the game boards. This may have been the same machine that was at the now defunct This & That in Muldragh, which was run by my best friends' grandparents, and was a great hangout - the first arcade Muldraugh had had in years, perhaps the first they ever had! The Final Fight and Capcom Bowling machines are authentic, as they both have the original side stickers on both sides of the cabinets.-Mike Waters

This place is a typical laundromat. It has 3 great Namco classics, but the sides of the track on Pole Position are distorted. Otherwise, the graphics are fine. This is an upright machine.

This is a typical movie theater with 10 or more movies playing at all times. Definitely the area's best theater!

I just stopped by Showtime this month, and here's a quick update. The Namco machines aren't there anymore, I don't think. They put WWF Royal Rumble in place of them. -.- Most of the other games that I remember being there are still there, and happy to say, Super Sprint does work! It was turned on the last time I visited, and I got to play it. Blue side works great, not sure about the other 2 yet. Michaelangelo's and Leonardo's controls work well in Turtles In Time, and they also have a Paperboy machine on the right side (with Pac-Land, Turtles In Time, and Super Sprint). I seem to remember them having that machine before, but I forgot about it apparently, or they may have gotten rid of it and gotten it back, and I don't see why they would do that. I guess they just moved the machine to the other side of the theater and I overlooked it until now.-Mike Waters

When I was there, I remember seeing a Ms. Pac-Man/Galaga Class Of '81 machine in both game rooms, which yes, are really small, 1943: The Battle Of Midway in the one upstairs, and Millipede in the one downstairs. It was just Millipede, not a combo machine that I could tell. I don't know if I just missed the Ms. Pac-Man machine or what, since I had gotten off a plane into Minneapolis and not walked straight into the airport, but there were enough games to pass the time for me, even during a 6 hour layover.-Mike Waters

Well I figured that I'd mention that my arcade collection is all but complete, and that I'm likely done with getting any further PCB's. I was pondering getting another PCB (which is why I didn't mention my full collection sooner), but I think I'm done with getting arcade games, due to lack of funds, and the fact that I pretty much have all of the games I want, plus not to mention the fact that I have no more room for other machines as of now. I am also getting both of my machines refurbished this weekend hopefully, and I'll post any info about them that may be interesting. Anyway, here is my full collection once again.

Trafalga used to have a stellar game room. There were games like Space Duel (I discovered and fell in love with this game at Trafalga), a sit-down version of Star Trek, a Spy Hunter sit-down (the only way to play that game) and countless others, such as Pac-Man, Sinistar, and I wish I could think of all of them. Assault was there later, and that's a fun one. It used to be a shrine of all that was good in my young life, a focal point for satisfying my video game desires and addictions. Alas, now it houses Dance Dance Revolution and the like.-Thohan

Ephraim

When you live in a small town (about 2000 people), the presence of some form of electronic entertainment is not to be taken for granted. I lived in neighboring Manti, and the Cow Palace in Ephraim was about 6 miles away. It was a special treat to visit this place for bowling, pool, video games, or all three if possible. I honed my skills on Discs of Tron and got a good 15 or so minutes of gameplay per quarter. This place holds nothing but good memories for me. There was also a Super Bug machine there. Black and White games are old. I think that qualifies as classic.-Thohan

The Ultracade machine also has Asteroids on it. Interesting, the marquee on the machine is for Williams Multi-Game (Robotron, Defender, etc.). However, the game definately has more than just Williams games on it. For what it is worth, the Robotron is hard to play in that the controls are way wider apart then the actual game and the diagonal movement on the left joystick is a bit hinky. Makes for a frustrating game.-Jim of Reston, VA

Man oh man, I grew up making the drive to this place and still do---Not only is it alive and well, the PLACEMENT OF THE MACHINES hasn't even changed in aprox. 20 years I've been going there. They even have two copies of my favorite game, Gyruss. The food, is ok, not great, but pretty cheap, and cheap beer. The steamed shrimp's not bad, and the crabs are ok, but better can be had. In any case, you can definitely go just to play games---they're all in a seperate big room, you can buy cans of beer and carry 'em in, it's a real down and dirty Anne Arundel County atmosphere---lots of big guts and the trucker/waterman look reigns supreme. I still go regularly, and just brought my girlfriend's 3 and 6 year old out there, it was ablast watching them play the same Asteroids and Missle Command machines that hooked me years ago. They're open late, too, which is nice. and lots of the pinball machines give you 5 balls for a quarter, including my fave Black Knight 2000. It's WELL worth the trip, and ignore the unassuming look from the outside of the building. The glory that awaits is truly amazing. -Jason B.

I believe the name of this place is actually "Royal Family Amusements". I was passing through Front Royal today and I saw a billboard for it. I went down E Main Street (the road that the billboard claimed it was on) and I didn't see it. Although none of the shops on that rather narrow street had very good signage, so that's probably why I missed it. I would have parked and walked around, but I don't know where they expect you to park near there. If anyone could tell me how to get there (a parking area nearby, not the actual arcade) from Commerce Ave I would really appreciate it. I should be passing through Front Royal again sometime in the next month.-ABR

Good Old Springfield Mall, the best place for arcade games in Northern Virginia IMO. This place also has 2 movie theaters with a few arcade games, an internet arcade, and another arcade with coin-op games. The class of 1981 machine at the upstairs time-out (next to JcPenney) is 2 tokens (it did not have the 1 credit to continue option), and the machines at the downstairs time out (next to the bigger food court) are only 1 token, so unless it's the original "Mr" Pac Man you want, you should go downstairs to play. -ABR

This theater opened on 2/25/04, and the old 15 screen theater in Neighborhood 7 closed. It looks like most (if not all) of the games at the old location made it to the new one, along with new ones. The theater is connected to the mall, but you have to use an outside entrance. It's best to leave the mall at the Neighborhood 9 entrance, however, it is also not that far from the Neighborhood 4 entrance (near the food court). When you walk in the theater, there are 2 game areas, 1 on the right and one on the left. On the left side every machine is 4 quarters, and on the right every machine is either 2 or 3 quarters. This machine is 2 quarters, I didn't play the Galaga, but I played Ms. Pac Man and it is set unbelievably fast. Also you only get two lives to start (but the fast speed makes it possible to outrun the monsters and easily get the bonus life at 1,000) I'm guessing Galaga is the same (set fast, 2 lives to start) Don't forget, Planet Fun in Neighborhood 1 at this mall has the same machine.-ABR

Just wanted to comment on ABR's post. You just cannot infer Galaga settings based on what the Ms. Pac-Man setting is on the "Class of 1981". I have seen numerous such machines where Ms. Pac-Man is fast and Galaga shots are not or where there are different number of starting lives. To get the Galaga setting, you'll have to actually play the game. :-)-Richard M.

Hey, I'm thinking about making the trip out here one day soon. Just wondering, what exactly is this place like? I mean, the name makes it sound like a Seafood restaurant.

In case anybody is interested, the Ocean One Mall on the Atlantic City Boardwalk is currently being rennovated, and is scheduled to open sometime in 2005. I'm not exactly sure if it's going to be a mall, or something else though. In front of the mall you can see an artist's drwaing of what it'll look like when it's done, and it looks like it'll be more of an entertainment center of some sorts, rather than a mall. Hopefully it will be another mall, and that it'll at least have a half decent arcade in it like the Ocean One Mall had. It's kind of sad though that it'll never be the same like it was before. That's too bad for sure.-Joe

Well I made yet another visit here today, and I'm sad to report that this arcade has gotten rid of virtually all of their classics, and have replaced them with newer games (like Arctic Thunder, Crusi'n Exotica, Time Crisis, etc) that we see in almost every other arcades these days. Thsy also added a dance game (very similiar to Dance Dance Revoultion), which is located just outside of the arcade, and they also added some crane machines outside of the arcade too. As for the classics, they did add a Ms. Pac-Man/Galaga Machine, and they still have the game Suzuka 8 Hours 2, but that's it for classic games. For once I actually saw somebody working inside that arcade, and I asked him why they got rid of the classic games, and he said that the arcade is now under new ownership, and that they want to get newer games like most other malls have. It's a big disgrace that there was finally a mall arcade that had some quality old games in it, only to get rid of them, and ending up replacing them with new games that are not nearly as good. Since there are only two classic games remaining, I can no longer recommend this place to people to enjoy classics, and it's too bad that the new owners of this arcade had to make a once decent arcade into a bad one. It's a big shame, that's for sure. Oh well. -Joe

8 On the Break
Dunellen
New Jersey
"8 on the Break" is a rare find these days - a true "hole in the wall" arcade. Located right on Main St. it's easy to miss amidst the various small shops - in fact, I missed it twice trying to find it. Once I went in, however, the place was packed (it was on a Sunday late in the afternoon), the smell of some unidentified greasy food was in the air and the sounds of various machines come out very clearly. The place is broken up into three different rooms - the main room as you walk in, a small side room to the left and a large room in the back with a couple of pool tables. The majority of the games are in the main room. There are about two dozen games there overall and only a handful of "classics". The Mr. Do machine had perfect response and sound (I could actually here it over the other noise in the place) although there was a problem with the colors, especially the reds. The Ms. PacMan machine seemed to be in excellent condition as well, as was evidenced by a very good player that I was watching. I didn't get a chance to try the Moon Patrol machine, but the colors on the demo screen looked fine. As for the others, I was disappointed. Assault and Power Drift were both unplugged and I couldn't even find Bubble Bobble (although, in truth, I did not get to the back room and it may have been in there. I'll check on my next visit). There apparently used to be a Dragons Lair machine there, but it's been converted to something more updated (I didn't recognize the game itself). A very plesent surprise, however, were the handful of pinball machines. All seemed to be in good condition with the exception of the Terminator pin which was unplugged. The "coup de grace" for me, however, was finding a Black Knight II machine there. This is a hard pin to find and getting it in the good condition exceptionally rare. The Black Knight machines (both versions) were notorious for having target problems (drop and other) due to the wax they use to polish the paying fields. From what I could tell, this machine only had a problem with one kickback bumper. Overall, I had a pleasent experience at 8 On The Break and look forward to going again. I do hope they are able to fix the broken machines and return them to the lineup soon. I'll give another update as soon as I can. -KC

Funcade Casino
Ocean City
Maryland
Out of the 4 "major league" arcades on the boardwalk, this one is the lamest. First off, it has the worst location. It's located in the 10th street area I believe. IMO, the real action packed boardwalk ends around when the numbered streets begin, basically other than those staying in the hotels past 1st street, there's really no point in going past 1st street. All the tacky (but good) restaurants, soveinour shops start to come to an end. Although because it is really the only entertainment thing after the Fun City arcade, this place gets PACKED on summer nights by those unfortunate enough to be staying in hotels between 5th street and 26th street (the part of the boardwalk with "nothing" but hotels) It's certainly worth a look, but I wasn't happy because of the size and the crowds. I suggest making your way up to Fun City or Sportland or Playland (the other 3 major league boardwalk arcades)-ABR

HEY, JOE ! Sorry for venting, but as I said before we try! Some people you just can't reach !!!To answer your question..Most of our games were warehoused, after the 80's boom,in the area that they are featured now.(Covered & un-touched) The others were traded, and or purchaced from TNT Amusements in Southampton PA. They have been in business for 25 years. If anyone wants an older game in MINT or NEAR MINT condition. This is the place to go. Here's a secret! They are responsible for all of the Chasis caps, board maint. new parts, and allow us to run OUR show like it was back in the late 70's.No time to do it myself anymore with a family to look out for... Check them out at TNTAMUSEMENTS.COM You won't believe what you see. Keep up the good work!!Joe, I hope to see you in 2004, as for the PSYCOS. LIGHT'N up..........OR AT BEST,BUY ONE OF YOUR OWN MACHINES, that way, when you incur problems, you can hear yourself complain. Then you can tell yourself, as I do to your kind, GET A LIFE, ITS A @$^&#@%*( GAME ) JC-Jrc

There may still be a Star Wars and Pac Man mini-cabaret lurking but I didn't notice them.

About a year ago it went on hiatus again and finally reopened next door to it's 2nd location (Pegasus). This location is around the same size as it's 2nd location.

My previous post was about the Ms. Pacman/Galaga Machine. This one is for the Ultracade. The Ultracade is located right by the Ms. Pac Man/Galaga Machine (very back of the arcade by Galaxian). The price for the Ultracade was 3.7 points for normal Power Card holders and 3.3 points for Gold Card Holders. Unfortunatley, the only game I can say it has is Klax (it's the only one I played, but there are loads more on that machine) but be sure and check it out. This is the only Ultracade I've seen in the Washington DC area! Note: To avoid any confusion, the Galaxian game I mentioned above is not the classic version.-ABR

I've never been to Grand Prix. I understand it's the largest arcade in the country with 1200 games (Funspot is second with 500 I think), but that includes modern games, pinball, Skee-ball, Whac-a-mole, etc. But I definitely recommend Funspot over anyplace else for classic games. Funspot has 180 classic game titles, far more than anyplace else.-Richard M.

Shore Mall

Well, I made yet another visit to this arcade over the weekend, and I forgot to mention that they no longer have Thunder Blade, as well as Pole Position, or Toobon. I notified Tony P. so hopefully he'll delete them next time this page is updated. I actually counted all of the games this arcade has, and they have 20 arcade games, which is a surprise. Only one game (I can't remember which one it was) wasn't working, and as far as I know, most of the other games worked fine. The Aliens screen/monitor looks a little crappy though (it has badly messed up colors, but it is playable for the most part). Inside the arcade, aside from the classics, as mentioned before, they have some newer games (I noticed that they don't have Crusi'n USA, and it's actually Crusi'n World in a Crusi'n USA Cabinet), and other notable games here are Lethal Enforcers, and Tekken 3. Also they have Trophy Hunting (not Deer Hunting USA, like I thought it was) sitting along the entrance of the arcade, and outside, they have some cheesy coin operated kiddy rides, and a game that you use a mallet to bash crabs. Also inside the arcade (aside from the video games) they have a mini basketball shooting game for the kids (in the left hand corner of the arcade), and in the middle of the arcade, they have a bigger basketball shooting game, and an air hockey table. They too have a game that you pound a basketball, that tries to shoot little ping-pong balls into baskets, that's seen in many other arcades. It would be better if this arcade had some classic pinball machines as well, but it's good that they have the games they have here, and it's even better that some of them are actually classics. One main problem with this arcade is that it's hard to see the screens when you're playing some of the games, due to the annoying glare from the lights in the arcade. Other than that, there's really nothing else wrong with this arcade (other than the fact that it's a little small, and you feel very cramped sometimes when you're in it), but it's one of the better arcades I've seen in any mall, and it was actually a little packed when I went here last time, which was a good sign. It's sure a recommended arcade to visit, if you ever go to this mall. In a way, it's not such a bad thing that they're not very consistent with their games, because it always leaves me wondering which ones they'll have when I come here, and it's good to be surprised sometimes. Hopefully they'll get some even better games in the future too. That would be great!-Joe

Urban Outfitters
New Haven

As you may have guessed, this place is in fact a clothing store. It's in downtown New Haven, the address is 43 Broadway. They sell mostly trendy preppy stuff plus lots of retro stuff from the 70's and 80's. The games are located on the upper level (the men's department). In addition to the two games mentioned above, they also have a Marvel VS. Capcom machine. All three games are in pretty good shape. Unfortunately, being in downtown New Haven, parking is a problem. If you can find a space, it costs a quarter for every 20 minutes. I haven't been able to find free parking anywhere in the immediate area, thus I probably wouldn't recommend this place if you only want to play games.-Ryan F.

Well once again, this strange arcade has gone yet another minor face lift in terms of the games it has. It's gotten rid of (but has also added) a couple of games once again, and two of the games they no longer have, (despite the fact that they're still on the list, and hopefully they'll be deleted soon) are Pole Position (at least they have Pole Position II), and Toobin'. This arcade also has a few somewhat newer games from the mid 90's that you'll typically see in some other mall aracdes, with the most notable ones being Cruis'n USA, and Mortal Kombat 4. Considering how small this arcade actually is, it's amazing how they can fit at least 12 (it has close to that amount) arcade games (although one of the games they have, which is Dear Hunting USA I believe, is standing just outside the arcade, which does work), plus an air hockey table, and a mini basketball shooting game inside it. The good thing is that most, if not all of the games here work fine, and it would be even better if they had all classics, and kept them to $.25 a play, instead of $.50. At least there's still at least one mall arcade with the same dark look, and feel as the arcades of the 80's to early 90's, and it's worth a visit, even if it's just to look at it for a few minutes, just to remind you how good arcades (mainly mall ones) once were. Hopefully this arcade will keep on lasting, and will start to be more consistent with the games they have, since they always change them around whenever I come here. -Joe

Game is set on regular speeds in both Ms. Pac-Man and Galaga. Other than Ms. Pac-Man being set at five initial lives, the game is on factory settings.

To the person who posted the most recent comment about this place, did the mall on the A.C. Boardwalk (Ocean One Mall, or whatever it's called) actually re-open? I remember that it closed down for a while, and I thought it was a goner. I remember going to that arcade on class trips to A.C. when I was in high school, and the arcade there was good, but they didn't have any classics, and a they had a few faulty games there too. Did that arcade get any classics and/or any other new games in it? I'll have to check it out next time I make a visit to Atlantic City. I'll be turning 21 soon, so I'll be going to A.C. a lot after that happens! Any info about the Mall arcade in A.C. would be appreciated. In the meantime, if you ever go down to A.C. make sure you visit the Playcase Arcade! In my opinion, any arcade that has an Ultracade machine is worth a visit. -Joe

Made the trek to Portland again, and no visit is complete without some Ground Kontrol. Again, the atmosphere is finely tuned to retro-cade sensibilities with 80's-era pac-man promotions on the walls and rows of classic games. Neil is telling the truth: the games are in better shape. Street Fighter II was still a little rough, but Assault/Joust/Spy Hunter were dead-on perfect. Rolling Thunder is gone? Had a great time, and will be back with more quarters.-JJ3

I used to work in this arcade all through out highschool, and I can tell you from experience that all the machines here are in great condition and are always being worked on, so if you had any problems with anything chances are it will be fixed by now. You'd be surprised how shoddy some people treat these classic machines. Hell, I've seen the controller on the old Atari Starwars machine snapped off because some body decided twist it as hard as he could. Anyway, definetly check this place out if your in the area, they've done a wonderful job allocating all these great games and you'd be hard pressed to find a better collection of classic games in the area. -Regus

Their Tempest machine was out of order and the Donkey Kong controller was a bit flakey. The rest of the machines that we played were pretty good (Ms. PacMan, Asteroids, Q*Bert, Star Wars, Galaga, Millipede, Robotron, Spy Hunter). I believe they also had a Centipede game which isn't listed above. We had a great time at this place!-datacode

Anyone who has a complaint about this place needs to chill! How many places are there where you can play Defender, Tron, Joust, Astroids and many others? Not that many. The fact that a few of the games don't work is part of the experience of going to an arcade like this. Yes, I was annoyed when Track and Field would not work, but the guy gave me my money back no problem and I played many other great games. To those of you who complain about Defender costing 50 cents - GET OVER IT! That is the only game there that I found that was more than a quarter, and I still considered myself lucky to be able to play it and eventually lose all my humans and have the planet explode! Is the extra quarter I had to pay going to effect my lifestyle? NO! But what is the cost of reliving classic memories of classic Defender? Priceless. By the way, don't miss the really old golf game. An actual marble ball comes out, and you control when to release it down a slope to try to get it into hole 1, then 2, then 3... You get 27 balls for 25 cents for a shot at getting par on nine holes. And people complain about an extra quarter for Defender.-JS

Joe's Private Arcade
Manahawkin
New Jersey
Well, since there's not many more arcades that I can review these days, I figured I'd take the time to review my own arcade for the heck of it. As you may be able to tell, I have 35 games, but only 2 machines. The machines as you can see that I have are my Punch Out machine (which contains Punch Out, and Super Punch Out), and my Double Dragon II machine (which is my Jamma cabinet, that plays all of my other games), and my two machines are located side by side in our family room. The cabinets I have are in pretty good shape, and most of the games I have work fine. The top screen on my Punch Out machine could be a little better, but it's not too bad, and the screen on my Double Dragon II machine looks good for the most part. Most of the games I have work fine too. The only games I have that have it's share of minor flaws, are Kung-Fu Master, Shinobi, and Super Punch Out. I can't get Kung-Fu Master to go into two player mode, I can't set Shinobi to easy (the dip switch that enables you to do so is broken), and the joystick on the Punch Out cabinet doesn't work right with Super Punch Out, and I was told that I need a different one to make that game work right. Other than that, all of my other games work okay, and anyone who sees this message is welcome to contact me if you want to set up a visit. I guess this pretty much covers everything, and if I ever do get anymore games, I'll post them up as always.-Joe

Pinballs as of 9/4/03: Addams Family, Creature from Black Lagoon, Star Wars: Ep 1, and another (forgot). Definitely worth a visit if you like classic arcade games.-Kevin

Boardwalk The Casino Arcade
Wildwood
New Jersey
Okay. Now that this location has been fully updated I'll post my full review on it. As you can pretty much see, this is by far the best arcade there is in Wildwood (that I know of) for classic games (even though that's really not saying much, since almost all of the other arcades there only seem to have new games), and is worth a visit in my opinion. However this arcade contains the main problem that most arcades with many classics have, which is that most of the games here are not in very good shape. A good majority of the old games here either do not work, or have many of the common ailments that most classics have these days (i.e. games with messed up colors/screens, faulty controls, and bad, or no sound), and it's a shame to see so many good classics go to waste. Due to the sad state most of these games are in, the truth is that this arcade really has no more than about ten or so playable classics in it, and another mistake is that most (if not all) of the old games at this location are 50 cents, which there is just no excuse for, due to the terrible shape that a lot of the games here are in. As I mentioned before, if you're in Wildwood looking for an arcade with some decent classics (and a good mix of some newer games too), then this is the spot to be, but don't say that I didn't warn you! It's sad to see how much people who own arcades really don't seem to care what shape their games are in, and it would help a whole lot if more arcade owners would value their games more than they actually do. Oh well.-Joe

Billy, what is your problem? Look at the big picture: Arcades are a business. Business' are there to make money. Classic games, although fun, at one-quarter for a long play turn, don't make a lot of money. Besides, if you don't like those "non-english games", you should at least say why instead of the reason of "it's not in English". Pinball petes has plenty of classic games, lots of imports, and is pretty up-to-date on the new games. Great place, and the fans on the Dance Dance Revolution machines are very much appreciated.-Pico The Revolver

I drove by here today, and I did see that it had a few arcade machines in it. I didn't see if it had Out Run or not, but I did see one machine with Ms.Pac-Man side art on it (which means that it's either Ms.Pac-Man, or the Ms.Pac-Man/Galaga combo game), but that was the only machine I really got a good look at. I'll try to stop by here on my next visit to Seaside, and see what other games they have. -Joe

Richard, you are right about this arcade. Despite the good amount of classics, it does have it's flaws (not that it's their fault, since it has nothing to do with the parking prices, or the big crowds), but the early closing time that they have during the non summer/tourist season really gets on my nerves. All in all though, this is clearly the best arcade on Seaside, if you like classics games like most of us do, and it is one that any hardcore gamer should check out anytime. Also did you let Tony P. know about the two classics you discovered there (Gyruss, and Robotron), that are currently not on the list? If you didn't, please let him know, so he can add them soon.-Joe

Yes, the huge crowds that I mentioned apply more to Seaside Heights rather than just this one arcade. On a hot Saturday evening, everybody in New Jersey (and based on license plates a number of people from Pennsylvania and New York) converges there. Hence it's crowded and parking lot attendants can charge a premium. But I still had a good time and I'll be back the next time I have an excuse to be in NJ during the summer.-Richard M.

Howdy classic game fans!

The Pengo is in great condition but, the Pacman collection isn't in the greatest of shape.I think everyone should come check this place out and play the PONG! :)-pacgirl

Carousel Family Entertainment
Seaside Heights

Made a relatively uncommon trip to NJ this past Saturday, and on my way to Atlantic City took a detour to Seaside Heights to locate this arcade. After an enjoyable walk along a very crowded Boardwalk, I finally located this place with the word "Carousel" in the name. It had Tempest, Galaga, Millipede, Ms. Pac-Man, Cabal, and Star Wars (among others) as listed on this page. The arcade also had Gyruss and Robotron as well. Tempest had graphics that were slightly faint and distorted but game play was excellent. Gyruss had a banged-up joystick which was not completely reliable (I still turned the game over). I played a few games of Tempest and one game of Gyruss, and would have checked out the arcade games a bit more except that I looked at my watch and realized my parking meter was about to expire! (It had expired by the time I got back to my car, but fortunately nobody else - like a cop - noticed. Whew! Then it was off to A.C.) All in all this is a very good arcade, but with no free parking available, huge summertime crowds, and - based on one of Joe's previous posts - inconvenient off-season hours.-Richard M.

I was here 1.5 weeks ago and they still had this. As with all machines at Dave and Buster's it's in excellent condition, but rather expensive. From what I remember, the price was 4.6 points for Non-gold card holders and somewhere around 4 points for gold card holders. 4.6 points is around the equivelant of $1.50 (plus $1.00 fee if you don't have a power card) if you buy points seperatley, and roughly $.60-$.80 if you buy $20 or $25 at one time. For anyone who doesn't know, a gold card holder is someone who brings a card in that has had $300 in chips on it over it's use.-ABR

All are the upright models: Ms. PacMan, Centipede, Asteroids, Pole Position, Space Invaders Deluxe, Time Pilot, Krull. They no longer have Tempest, Crystal Castles or Time Soldiers. The place isn't the cleanest and the games are not super well cared for, but most are playable. -Randy

Wow! I live in between Austin and Round Rock...I can't believe this game is there. O/T...does anyone know about the game called spiders? I'm trying to find info on it. It was out in the early 80's (I'd guess 82). It's not on the main list.-Warborg

It is a good place to play games. They have some classics like Battlezone and Ms. Pacman. They have many games and pinballs for sale downstairs, but unless you want to pay $900 for a cocktail Space Invaders II or $1,400 for a mini Ms. Pac Man which are both in so so condition, I'd suggest you just play and not buy.-Sal

Disney Quest
Orlando

I just sent Tony a Complete listing as of June 2003 This is a great place to go if you are planning a trip to orlando and your into classic games. As mentioned elsewhere here, there are disney tickets available that include DQ. Seperate admission is over $30 at this point, a bit pricey when you consider a family and the limitations mentioned below. Sometimes a special late night 1/2 off admission is available which depends on crowd sizes. It's always done in the last 2 hours of operation if done at all (not advertised). Be prepared to get little time to play newer games, as there is no time limit for guests to play. Classics usually become available and you will be able to sample a large selection of games. In the 6 hours or so I was there over 2 days I was NEVER able to play a few of the newer games I was interested in trying. Some kids get on a game and just stay there the whole night. It's a big flaw in the concept. I was able to try ALL the classics games I wanted to though. -Steve T

I would like to extend a huge thank you to all of the players who attended the tournament and made it such a success. Ken and I had a great time and hope all of you had a great time as well. The scores were incredible and the competition was exciting to watch as the players raced to see who would be the best. Nine new world records at one tournament are just unbelievable! I would also like to thank all of the Funspot employees who helped with this event, Amanda, Jen, Steph, Tina, Erica, Steve, Rob and Anna who spent most of the time scoring and all the others who filled in when needed. A big thank you to Randy Lawton for spending countless hours and many double shifts working on the games during the tournament and all those weeks leading into it. Thanks to Bob Winterson for working all day Saturday to help Randy with the games and an enormous thank you to Stephanie for writing the program that tracked all of the scores and made data entry a breeze. Jenn, thank you for all of the time you spent helping us make the tournament as smooth as possible. Mark your calendars for the 6th Annual Funspot Classic Game Tournament to be held the weekend after Memorial Day 2004. Exact dates will be posted when available. -Gary Vincent

Drove two hours to check out this retro-cade on a Friday night. They have done an excellent job of preserving the arcade atmophere of yesteryear. Nice, dark room open to the cool Portland night. Fun to see a lot of the mid-30's crowd lurking around games like kids, too. Only gripe is the poor game maintenence: Rolling Thunder was down, Battlezone(controls) and Punch-Out(screen) were unplayable. Street Fighter II was hindered by some faulty joystick connectors. Pinball machines are pretty shallow with weak flippers (Black Knight couldn't send the ball back up to the top level). Spy Hunter, Robotron: 2084 and Assault worked! Had a great time, but will call ahead to see what's working before I make the next trip. Rock on, Ground Kontrol.-JJ3

Well this arcade is still worth going to. It's just that they've gotten rid of some classic games. They still have some classics left. They don't have Carnival, Galaga '88, Marble Madness, N.A.R.C, Raiden, or Victory Road anymore. They still have Arkanoid(it's actually a Tournament Arkanoid), Asteroids, Galaxian, "Ironman" Ivan Stewart's Super Off Road, Ms. Pac-Man, Rampart, Sea Wolf, Space Invaders, Tapper, and Tetris. They also have Pac-Man, Centipede, The Simpsons, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Turbo Out Run, Capcom Bowling, After Burner, Super Sprint, Galaga, and Operation Wolf. The only other problem is that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has graffitti on it. This place also used to have Gimme A Break, Sente Mini Golf, Mercs, Jr. Pac-Man, Millipede, and Wheel of Fortune. There are better arcades out there though.-Zachary Carey

This place used to have a cool Turbo cabaret, but alas it is gone. The last time I visited, both the Ms. Pac-Man and Wonder Boy machines were there, both cabarets. Wonder Boy is actually a conversion from a Rally-X cabaret. The only way I could tell that it was originally Rally-X was by the race car sticker near the coin door of the cabinet. The machine also has the wood grain sides typical of Midway cabaret machines of that era.-Mike Waters

Every machine in this game room except for San Francisco Rush is $.25.-ABR

There are actually 3 Flipper McCoy's locations in Virginia Beach! There is one on Virginia Beach Blvd. next to Military Circle Mall. This one is the most spacious one and it has the most classics. There is one behind Lynnhaven Mall, the smallest one. This one and the one at the oceanfront has the classic pinball backboards hung on the walls. Finally, the one on Atlantic Ave. at the oceanfront is the original one which I believe has the most games of all 3. I'm impressed, Virginia Beach is rockin' with classics!-winslowe

I just made another visit here the a few days ago, and they did have some more classics that are currently not listed. Unfortunately during this time of year, they close this arcade at 5:00 and I didn't get to play many games here due to the way too early closing time. It's good news that they do keep on adding classics at this place, and hopefully more will follow. Wait and see what other classics will soon be added to this list! -Joe

Had my shortest visit ever today. Since my last visit, the management at Cutlers put little signs on all the games saying, "Play at your own risk." So I risked a quarter on the Ms. Pac-Man game, and the machine reset as soon as I dropped my quarter! I left in disgust. The roster of games is unchanged since my last visit, but as the signs say, play at your own risk.-Richard M.

This is probably the best arcade in Ocean City, Maryland for classic video games. It doesn't have that many classics, but it at least has some good ones, with the Ultracade leading the way. The new games they have aren't bad too. One cool thing I noticed last time I visited here that is if you put a quarter in the 2nd coin slot on the Ultracade machine you get three credits for one quarter! I don't think anyone else noticed that, and you can usually get free games on this machine, since others don't seem to know this trick. This may have changed though (I haven't been here since November), but hopefully that's not the case. If you like arcades with a good mix of decent classics, and new games, then this is the place to be in Ocean City, and you won't be dissapointed!-Joe

Jillian's
Worcester

Just for the heck of it, I made the drive to the Worcester Jillian's today. There are seven classic games all together near the back of the establishment. From left to right the games were Tetris, Millipede, Missile Command, Galaga, Donkey Kong, Pac-Man Plus, and Asteroids. This is a little different from the list on the page, so Tony P. should make adjustments. Millipede appeared to be on the standard setting (bonus every 15K) but I didn't play it. I did play Galaga, which is set on three lifes with a 30/120/120 bonus setting. (I scored 921K.) Games seem to be in good condition, although Galaga ate one of my tokens (try the right coin slot.) It's a nice place, although with a bar on the premises there's a little too much smoking for my taste.-Richard M.

Went back here recently, and they did add a few more classics. I think they actually may have more than this, and I plan on going back here soon, so I'll know for sure what other games they may have here that I missed. The real highlight of this arcade in my opinion is the 80's music they play here (it really gets me pumped up when I play the games at this place) and this is really by far the #1 arcade for classics on the Seaside Boardwalk. If you ever vist the Seaside Boardwalk to look for classic games, then stop here and don't look back. You'll be very impressed with this arcade if you love classics.-Joe

I enjoyed RuenOne's post. But is Harrah's security really that concerned about potential gamblers visiting the arcade, or is it merely RuenOne's jumping that got all the attention? I've played arcade games in casinos in Nevada (in and near Las Vegas) and Connecticut without ever receiving anything more than normal interest when I'm having a good game. It just seems that casino security has other things to do, like harass skilled blackjack players - "card counters."-Richard M.

They have two floors of games. The first has mostly new games, a few classics, and redemption games. The second has nothing but classic games except for Virtua Fighter, Street Fighter 2, and some air hockey tables. When I go back there this summer, I'll see what else they have there.-Zachary Carey

Harrah's
Reno
Nevada
My last secret mission to locate arcade classics was in Reno, Nevada, January 15th 2003. I talked to many locals and people visiting the casinos, but I did not get many leads, so after hours of coming up clueless, I went deep-cover and began searching casino after casino for hidden arcades. I wondered into Harrah's and pretended to enjoy gambling so security wouldn't notice me. After playing a few boring "games," I saw my chance to make my move. I asked for the "bathrooms" and "pay-phones" knowing they would send me walking all through the place. So I'm walking around on the second floor and a younger security gaurd spots me, but I hold my cool and walk right by him down this long hall, I could smell it!! I knew I was there! And low and behold at the end of the hall was a nice size arcade with 4 classics. I knew security would be on to me, so being short on time, I picked Dig-Dug, it worked like a charm! And the machine was in great condition. I blew up as many round dudes and dragons as I could, made it to the 3rd level and died, which would have been fine, but I was jumping up and down going crazy!! (No games were hurt in this mission, I am strongly against all arcade abuse and vandalism!!)Security came in from all directions, I jumped through the window and activated my hover pack, a few scratches but I'm okay. Thats pretty much how it went down, till next time!! RuenOne signing out-Agent RuenOne

Shore Mall

As you may have noticed, a couple more classic games have been added. Toobin, and a Pole Position II cockpit game (located just outside, right in front of the arcade) are now here, which is a big plus. However, the monitor on the Pole Position II game is very messed up (although the game looks to be playable for the most part, but I didn't try it myself however). They also removed some of their new games they had, but at least they still have the classic games here. It seems like everytime I come here, the games they have are never the same, and it gets kind of frusterating not knowing which games they will, and won't have from the last visit. As long as this place keeps their classics, that's good so hopefully this arcade will stay intact for a while, and not bite the dust like most mall arcades have been recently. -Joe

Did they actually add more classics here recently? I haven't been here in a few months, so I'm curious. It would be great if they did, since they have quite a few classics here already, and adding more would only make it better. It's too bad that there's no other good arcades in Seaside like this, that have many classics in it (although this place does have some decent new games too). If anyone as any other info about this place please post it up. If not I'll do it myself next time I visit this place. -Joe

You can buy a game from them if you offer the owner a fair price. Be carefull!!. A lot of those boards are just so old. Much of the game glitch (flip screens) My friend and I are dissapointed that they don't intend to keep up the collection with maintenance. Some of the older games have no sound Donkey Kong and Gorf. Crabtown still Rocks. I like the fact you can drink a beer and play games. -McAllisterFallsChurch@yahoo.com

Unless you are very fond of these titles, I would not waste my time to make a special trip there unless you want to do some Music CD shopping at the New Target. The rest of the mall sucks and the only reason I go there is on the way home from the University of Maryland. You can visit the Target or Sports Authority for some good shopping. The arcade has cool modern games but Beltway Mall is lame!-McAllisterFallsChurch@yahoo.com

This used to be one of the most crowded arcades I have been to, but recently it has slowed down a bit. It has Tron, and that is all I care about! The non-smoking move is a plus since I have allergic reactions to nicotine (or one of the other thousands of substances in cigarettes). They also have some classic pinball machines such as Creature from the Black Lagoon.-Graboid

The only classic in the place, and set at 690 "points" per play. You get 600 "points" for $1, so the thing costs $1.15 for a single game. Best to wait for one of the occasional deals where a card is good for unlimited usage for several hours. The place *does* feature a lot of the larger, modern simulator games and linked cabinet games that traditional arcades can't afford.-Robert Morgan

The games in this place are spread out quite a bit. The Hang On game, and one of the Ms. Pac-Man/Galaga games (they have two of them) are found in one of the Northwest Airlines gates. 1943, After Burner, and Double Axle are found in a small game room, and the Centipede/Millipede/Missle Command combo game, and another Ms. Pac-Man Galaga combo are found in another small game room. I can't remember seeing a Ms. Pac-Man game here (although I very well could've missed it, since there very well could be more arcade games in this airport that I could've missed) They have quite a few good new games here too, so at least the games here give you a good way to kill time if you're waiting long for a flight. It would help if they were all in one place though.-Joe

I made my visit to Austin, Texas during my vacation last week, but I unfortunately was not able to see what classic games they had here. All I know about this place is that it's a dive bar of some sorts, and they told me (when I called the place) that they have some new games like Soul Caliber, and another one they mentioned to me that I can't remember of. They told me that they did have some old games, but didn't mention which ones. Hopefully one day someone will be able to find out what classic games they have here, so we'll know if this place it worth visiting or not. Oh well.-Joe

This was probably my favorite arcade that I visited in Texas. While they didn't have many classics, they had a lot of good new games here, and they also had an Ultracade machine at this place too which was a big plus. It would've been better if there would've been more classics, but at least this arcade had good games (and good food to eat also) so it would in my opinion, be a good place to visit.-Joe

The place exists!!! I drive from Virginia 40 miles to play games. They have a 109 coin operated games. 12-15 are broken. Therefore the place has roughly 90 games. Take Baltimore Washington Parkway to exit 100 to Glen Burnie. Getting there the first time is hard. I still get lost every time and I lived in Maryland 20years. The place is great. You can drink beer in the game room. Perhaps that is why some games are broken. Donkey Kong has no sound. Missle Command starts to flip its screen after 15,000 points or 10minutes of play. Still a great place. Just hard to find. It exists.-McAllisterFallsChurch@yahoo.com

My last trip to gameland was disappointing... 4 of my first 5 game attempts resulted in eaten quarters, broken controls, or in one case no actual pinball popped up. Others worked fine, but what got me mad is that the person who was working there (I didn't know it at the momement) was near me and saw that it wasn't working or that it ate my quarter, and did NOTHING. He was too busy watching his friend play street fighter. This place has really gone down the tubes.-Tony P

The raceway is not only a place to race slotcars it is a place for the person that wants to go back a few years and play the games that you remember from your childhood. There is no shortage of games to play and they are all the original games at the original price. The games are all in quality condition and you get addicted to playing like you were a kid again. Instead of waiting for my parents to find me and pull me out like when I was a kid, now my wife is the one waiting on me. My favorite games are Galaga and Centipede and Roger is always there for a good game of challenge on Monaco GP -Daron

I visited GameLand on 12/30/02. Here's an update: 1. (for Dan) Double Dragon DOES work, but the screen is a green color. However, it is still playable -- all buttons and joysticks work (as of 12/30). 2. Some games are now set up to take only tokens, while others take quarters. Kind of annoying. 3. Some prices seemed to have gone up since my last visit (there are now more 50 cent games). 4. The following games were not working during my visit: Burgertime and Joust, coin slot on Jungle King still does not work. 5. They now have Neo-Geo with Metal Slug 3! Cool place to visit, but prepare to spend a little...-Brian F

Nickel Nickel
Covina
California
For those who aren't familiar with Nickel Nickel, it's a nickel arcade with a cover charge. It's a great idea and well worth it when the arcade has a good selection to choose from. There's quite a few more games than the ones listed here, and many of the older games are in free-play cabinets, but almost all of the ones I played were defective in some way, which was very disappointing. Top Skater wouldn't take credits at all; Arch Rivals (free) had a faulty joystick; one of the Marvel Vs Capcom machines had a P1 joystick that was a little difficult to use; and the Addams Family pinball was VERY loose, and the right flippers don't stay up if pressed and held. Great idea, but it could use a little more work on the execution. I'd love to go back if I could be sure that things were in better shape, even if it cost a little more to get in. I get the impression that the Bemani games take precedence over the entire rest of the arcade, and it's probably true, but that doesn't mean that the rest of the games should be allowed to suffer.-Kermix

I stopped in yesterday, but forgot to get a few tokens for myself. :( The list of games on their site is more or less accurate, though I didn't take full inventory. As their webpage says, they have earlier hours now than they once did, probably due to pressure from the city and nearby residential areas. It's far from being the place it was in its glory days, but it's still open after 20 years, and that says something.-Kermix

I've stopped here a couple times. This is a pretty good sized service area. It is also very crowded. When I went to the hallway that the games are in I could barely get through, there were so many people. When I was playing one of the games, I was constantly bumped into. To put it in other way, don't stop here unless it's late at night or if you REALLY need to.-ABR

Quassy Amusement Park
Middlebury

I'm surprised this place isn't listed yet, it used to be great for classics. They still do have a good amount of stuff, one of the few remaining arcades anywhere around here. I worked there for a few years and used to play Galaga during my break. The games are cheap and most work good. It is an amusement park, so some of the games are in different locations outside the main arcade. Years ago, they had way more games and had two main arcades. Oh well. They don't charge admission to get into the place, if you want to just walk around and play games, you pay $3.00 for parking and you're in. The park is only open from April to October. Last time I was there, I didn't actually go in the arcade, but I'm pretty sure everything should still be there. When the park opens next spring, I'll go back and get a full list, cause they do switch stuff around a bit. Check it out, if you need directions, go to their web site.-Ryan F.

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! -Mike

I remember being in this place about a year and a half ago when I went on vacation in Ocean City and they have some good classics as you can see on the list. However this was a little while ago when I was here, and most of the classics were not working and I was very upset and dissapointed with that. This seemed to be another place that does not value their classic games too much since most of them did not work. They also had some of the typical new and middle aged games you usually see in arcades too. The reason I'm posting this comment up is because I am going back to Ocean City this weekend and I'll try to stop by this arcade again to see if there's any updates or more comments I can make for this place. If so I'll post it up if there's any useful information I can give. If you want to find a place that has a decent mixture of classics,middle aged games,and new ones then this is a good place to vist, assuming they get or already got the non working games fixed. If that's not the case then you'll probably be dissapointed if you come here just for the old games. -Joe

Boardwalk The Casino Arcade
Wildwood
New Jersey
This place(assuming it's the same one I'm thinking of)is actually called the Boardwalk Mall II arcade. I first visited this place in the summer of 2001 and they had a lot of pretty good classic games here then. When I went back this year though it was a completely different story because they got rid of most of their classics and replaced them with those typical boring rip off new games that we see in almost every other arcade. I can't remember exactly every classic game they have now but I do know that at least one of the two games seen on this list (Donkey Kong) is gone and think All American Football is gone too but I'm not 100% sure. The classic games they have here that I remember them having last time I came here are Asteroids Deluxe,Mario Bros,Ms.Pac-Man,Pac-Man,The Simpsons,and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. That's all I can remember at this point. I know they have a few more classics not mentioned but not a whole lot more. If I'm able to remember any other ones they have I'll post them up. Unfortunately I won't be coming back here until next summer at least so I won't be able to submit a full list of the classic games they have for a while. It's too bad that this place like many other arcades ends up getting rid of their good classic games and replaces them with those huge expensive new games that most people do not play. This is still however in my opinion the best arcade on the Wildwood Boardwalk when it comes to having good classic games but it's not nearly as good now as it was when I first visited and it's probably not going to be getting any better any time soon, unless the person who runs this place realizes that it's better for arcades to have more classics rather then replacing them with new games.-Joe

Just a quick corrention I wanted to make about the games they have at this place. Now that I put some more thought into it I don't think they had an Asteriods Deluxe game here, rather it was actually a Blasteriods game they had instead of that one. I'm not completely sure about this but I think that's the case. I'm still not able to remember what other games they do and don't have and since it's been a few months since I was last here it's kind of difficult to remember every classic game they had (although I do remember for sure that the other games I listed were here last time I checked). Sorry for any confusion this may have caused. We'll know for sure what classic games this place has next summer after I visit it again.-Joe

This is another pretty decent arcade in Ocean City that you won't be too dissaponted with if you like arcades with both old and new games. They have a few rare arcade games here like Sunset Riders,Superman,and Turtles II that I haven't seen in many other arcades before. It doesn't have quite as many games as Jilly's does, but it's a lot cleaner and takes much better care of it's games(there's a few games in Jilly's I've seen that had problems)than most other arcades do. I think this arcade is just about as good as most other arcades around here are and is in my opinion a good arcade to visit from time to time. -Joe

Shore Mall
Egg Harbor Township
New Jersey
This is another place that frequently either gets rid of, or replaces their games. I just went in here about a week ago, and they got rid of some of their games. They had a few more classics then they do now but not a lot more. A couple of new classic games also were here that I didn't see last time but only two were added. They also have a few middle aged games and fairly new games also and it is nice to see a shopping mall have some old games and not only the brand new ones like most other malls do. Most of these games are in fairly decent condition and they play pretty well. However I still don't quite understand why they charge 50 cents to play these games. This arcade is pretty small but at least it's there and it's not too bad. It just would a little nicer if the games were cheaper and if they had more and better games in it. I still feel it's worth a short visit if you like a good mixture of classic and new games but don't expect to want to spend all of your spare time here after a while.-Joe

Funspot/American Classic Arcade Museum

Back in 1999 was when Funspot had their first annual classics event. "The idea for the Funspot-Twin Galaxies Classic was co-created by Gary Vincent and Ken Sweet,... Because Funspot is famous for owning the world's largest collection of publicly operated classic video games, Ken realized that this would be the obvious site for the classic gaming hobby's premiere contest. "We convinced the editors of the Book of Records that this was the perfect place to create an official high-score championship for classic gaming," says Sweet, who is now a video game journalist in New Hampshire." I agree, Funspot is an awesome place to go. Follow Gary's link and you should definitely visit the place some time. It is well worth the trip! They recently revamped their classics room. Enjoy!!! -Mickie
