Came by the arcade completely by mistake, and oh boy did I get nostalgic... When I was about 9 .. a 100 years ago :) I used to spend my days playing a bunch of these games. unbelievable selection, and dirt cheap! This is the one place I'll definitely visit when I'm back in florida for vacation next year!

To put it simply it is the best place to be. The glow in the dark carpet is sick and I want them in my room! The games are a fantastic combination of old and new in catering to everyone's tastes in gaming genres. The classics from pinball to shooter games from DDR and Pump it up (which is my... More

I visited Arcade Odyssey while staying in Miami Beach. it was well worth the trip and a really chilled out atmosphere with amazing staff.The Arcade has 8 pinball machines, all in great condition including Doctor Who which I have not played before. I could have easily stayed for many hours. Definitely worth a visit for anyone looking for an Amusement... More

Hoo boy... On principle, I'm inclined to love any arcade. They are the last guardians of a dying age. But Arcade Odyssey isn't all that special. There are just a handful of classic games, and a ton of weird Japanese imports - some with nary an English word anywhere on them. I did enjoy tapping away on the cool X-Men... More

I showed up a little early after driving 2 hours. I called and was let in a little early. Great selection of Pinball machines and 80's hits such as Tron, Frogger, Phoenix, Dig Dug, Mario Brothers and many more. Even harder to find games like Phoenix and Gorf were there. I had a sick time playing my favorite Robotron. I... More

I can't believe this place actually exists! I thought my friends were just messing with me, but this place really has it all! I love Pump it Up and DDR! Played for hours! This place is so reasonable and fun, and all of the employees are so nice and understanding. When one of the pinball machines ate my tokens, one... More

Drove an hour and a half to go here yesterday, was well worth it. There are more working pinball machines here than any single location in Florida and the next 3 adjacent states. If they had a full liquor license, my wife and I would bring a cot and stay here the whole weekend. As it stands, we'll have to... More

Hello Cshyne, I am very glad you had fun at Arcade Odyssey, however I do have some clarifications i would like to point out, #1) not only do we have Ms Pacman but also Pacman and Pac-Man Jr, you see we have all of our games listed on www.arcadeodyssey.com under list of current games. It also shows in which cabinet... More
