This is a safe arcade where I would not hesitate to bring kids. The place does not smell smoky and staff are polite. It was a bonus to find that the bathrooms were new, clean and bright.

I grew up during the eras when arcade machines and establishments where everywhere. From the local laundromat to your favorite mall. This place has that same look and feel with some added new age gaming. There is pinball,... More

Yup, no card swipe machine to rip you off! Totally worth... More

One of the last known true Arcades in the Miami area. With games ranging from the beloved Pac-man & Galaga era to House of the Dead and even Japanese titles like Melty Blood and Ikaruga. This place has a little bit of everything for everyone. XBox360s, PS3s and Wii systems located in the back are attached to 3D enabled displays... More
