Visited on a Friday afternoon. Was not very busy and at times we had entire place to ourselves. Somewhat hard to find how to access due to being in an empty mall space. Lots of anime/Japanese games, cool retro pinball machines.

Don't let the dying mall scare you off. When we got here today, it was hard to believe we would find any business left in this mall that in its brighter days looked to have been packed with tons of shops. We parked outside the entrance by the Babies R Us and wandered through the mall before a stranger was kind enough to point us to where this arcade wonderland was. IT IS LOCATED ON THE 1ST FLOOR BY THE FOOD COURT.

We opted for the simple $5 per person for one hour of unlimited all you can play fun. Talk about nostalgia! There were old school pinball games along the left side of the venue along with various projector based setups for multiplayer gaming action. Plenty of classic arcade games all on free play. Thank goodness too as my 9 year old son and me finished Altered Beast. Then it was off to Area 51 before some other games caught our attention.

Be aware that it gets pretty warm in there so its best to wear t-shirt and shorts. Go for at least two hours though or the all day pass so that you truly can enjoy finally beating all those games you never did as a game because you ran out of quarters.

We had a blast and were glad to have made the trek to check this place out. Its a shame though as that mall is truly on its last leg. Catch Arcade Legacy here while you can. Well worth the admission price!

The place itself is very plain but all the older arcade games and over a dozaine of station with different game station, makes it worth to go there!
You can spend a good afternoon there, for pretty cheap!
Besides for the location, inside a basically empty mall, its a cool place to go!
The people there seemed pretty nice. Its great to bring your kids there too.

First time here and OMG! This place is amazing. Lots of old style arcade games and pinball machines and even a 8 bit Nintendo system.
We went on a Saturday night and there was little to no lines for any of the games.
Worth to check it out.
I WILL be back, especially for the wrestlefest game....my favorite from the 90s

We were in Cincinnati for a family function in the evening. We were looking for something for me and my adult children to do to celebrate Mother’s Day and my son’s 21st birthday. My brother who lives in Cincinnati recommended this place. WE HAD A BLAST! We showed up Saturday when they opened around noon, got drinks, and started playing games. There are games for everyone – We played centipede, pacman, pinball, and other games. There are xbox games and playstation games as well. I loved that there where skinny tables between the machines for your drinks. They have a HUGE beer selection and lots of drinks on the drink menu, don’t see what you want, just ask. I had a tough time keeping up with my 20 something children. We have a place similar at home, but they don’t serve drinks. Great Concept.

So this place is just awesome not only for what it is but where. Nestled in the food court of the mostly abandoned Cincinnati Mall. For $5 you can walk into this arcade and play any game you want for an hour. While they don't have plain PacMan ( my favorite game) they do have some great pinball games.

Once you are done playing though dont be afraid to do some urban exploring. The mall is open, but dead minus the arcade and a kids bounce house. Its cool to walking around and see the two abandoned movie theaters and empty Media Play. Enjoy!
