Fun for hours
Jan 2021 • Couples
Talk about nerds in paradise we were here for 4 hours one evening just gaming away! You pay to get in we had a coupon that made it $7.50 a person, and then you can play all the games you want for as long as you want. It has 2 levels of classic 80's games and it is a blast! They did have a room od pinball machines that took quarters and we did some of those as well just for the fun of it! Great place for families or adults just wanting to unwind and enjoy some gaming!

Nostalgic fun!

The 80's have returned. And at this arcade, all of the decade's best games are featured. Then, there are a few that I haven't heard of, but were fun to play. We stayed there for hours!

Fun with Friends!

Any time I am in the area I stop in here for at least part of a day. You buy an all day pass at the door and can come and go as you please. Neat. Snacks and soda for purchase. Two levels of hard to find arcade games. I am not personally a gamer, but this stop is never a bore. Nice people running the place.

Great rainy day fun

I think they’ve got most of my childhood games!!
Super nice guys own the place! They ask if you have been in, explain how it works, etc
Am really considering having my son’s birthday party here!
They serve a few things for snacks, but you can leave and come back, because you pay by the day!!! Located in the middle of a lot of great bars and restaurants!

Ahh the 1980’s
Oct 2019 • Family
I wasn’t expecting much going there and was pleasantly surprised. Lots of video games to chose from that are free play, however pinball cost 25-50 cents. Music from the 80’s is played throughout the arcade. They have a lot of decor spread through the arcade as well. Definitely brings the 80’s back to life. Their hours are a little odd so check before you go. 10.00 per person is well worth the admission. The only drawback is that if going on a weekend expect a lot of people and maybe a birthday party as well. During our visit there were quite a few kids running around unattended from a birthday party. Next time I go back I would probably try to go through the week and avoid the screaming kids.
I highly recommend for giving this a try especially for anyone that loves the 80’s nostalgia. Even my teenage son loved it.

We had a blast
Jul 2019 • Family
This place is a hidden gem. We were in town looking for something to do and stumbled upon it. For $7.50 a person you get unlimited old style video game play. This place occupies several store fronts and a large basement area. These are the video games of the 1980s. They have all the classics. It was fun playing them. The pinball machines require quarters to play them.

Change of pace, family time
Jul 2019 • Family
It was a change of pace. Vintage video games, two floors. I appreciated the hangout space for adults to hang out while children enjoy the vintage experience. I would recommend for multigeneration family time. Clean environment

Really cool nostalgic Arcade!
May 2019 • Family
I think this Arcade is a Really Cool quality Arcade I love how they have a couple different Time Capsule style rooms! I love the Ghost Busters room, and the Tv Room but I still have two really mild complaints it seems like the Guy at the Front Desk is confused at times because we were waiting to pay the Price of Admission and he took a Couple who was behind us first which was mildly Rude!!! I think someone rigged the Q-Birt Arcade Game!!! I will only let you Play 2 players instead of one which is a little Annoying! 4 Stars for me!
