Had a very nice and fun evening playing arcade games. Had a blast playing pinball. Nice place. For a entry fee you can play all the arcade games you want. Pinball is extra but only 25 or 50 cents a game.

My sorority rented out 1984 for a few hours one night and it was great. Not too crowded and a ton of fun. I'm not a huge 'gamer', but I had a blast! Will definitely come back.

Loved this arcade, but it was way too crowded...Had to wait to play most games. Loved the concept of the place though with the party rooms and the whole arcade was neat!

Took my 7 and 9 year old here to show them what Dad used to do to waste his time. Galaga, Pac Man, Burger Time, Centipede, Frogger, Tron, Q Bert - and the list goes on and on. Great value for the money. Can leave and come back. I wished they had a set amount just for the pinball. That's... More

Great place! Arrived on a Thursday a little after 5 with two teen boys and a 6yr old. Downtown, right across from the Y. I got lucky and found a parking space on the street just a few spaces down. Space Invaders was not working- but I played Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong Jr, Frogger, Ms. Pac Man, Pole Position, Burger... More

We decided to see what 1984 was all about. The atmosphere is true to the arcades in the 80s. Pinball machines, arcade games, 80s magazines and music. Cost wax reasonable and we had so much fun!

Looking for something to do with the family for my daughters birthday. Ages of kids are 16, 18, 20 and 22. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves and my husband and I had fun playing all the games we grew up on. Liked that you could leave and come back, so we left and ate dinner and came back for a... More

Thank you 1984. My wife and I were there recently. We made a trip to Springfield from about two and half hours away to do some shopping and have a nice meal. It was capped off with a trip to 1984. What a wonderful place! I'm in my early fifites and six years older than my wife. When in my... More

This place is a ton of fun for the whole family! We have teenage nephews and we can turn them loose without worry. They have raised their prices. Used to be $5 per person...now up to $7.50 or $8. Still a pretty good deal, since it is unlimited play. Best time to visit is the summer. Get outta the heat... More
