“Classic Loud Dark Fun for the Whole Family”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

I have been there a few times and have gotten to know the owner, Rick. He is a great guy who just wants to share his love of classic arcade games. We had a birthday party there; we were also invited to a birthday party; and have also gone a few times just to go.

Give yourself a moment to get adjusted to the darkness and the volume, but after a few moments, all is good, and you will be having a blast playing Moon Patrol, or Tron, or a vintage pinball machine, or anything else you want.

“Great Place for an Afternoon of Fun”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

This is one of those great hidden gems in Miami. An arcade filled with not only new games, but the classics, pinballs and Japanese imports, there is something for everyone here. There is also a healthy cycling of the games, so almost every month there is something new to check out. The coins come up to 4 for $1, and games vary from 1 coin per play (usually older games like Tron, Mulitcades, etc.) to 4 per play (some fighting games, The Act, and I think DDR?). There are Japanese snacks available for sale as well. If you want the full arcade experience, come weekends when it is full of people of all ages running around and playing games together. Weekdays and early afternoons its usually much more quiet and calm.

“"One of the best arcade experiences you'll ever have."”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

Arcade Odyssey is a delight for anyone wishing to relive the hey-day of arcades or introduce a new generation to the wonders of the arcade scene. AO hosts an enviable amount of cabinets familiar to any and all who play and enjoy video games. There's something for everyone there. Be it racing, japanese oddities that are addicting, fighters, or even the arcade classic of table hockey.

The staff are very kind and willing and able to answer any kind of questions that you need answering. I highly recommend Arcade Odyssey.

“Best Place For Classic Gamers”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

This place is the best arcade in the United States. It is a traditional arcade, one which uses coins that are actually worth 25 cents a pop. The arcade has a metric ton of awesome arcade and pinball games, and they change a few every month or so, letting their customers choose what comes in! The arcade has an amazing staff that cares deeply about its customers, always knows how to fix the arcade machines, and if a machine breaks or eats your quarters, they will always return you your credits and even sometimes give you some free ones for the machine. If you ever get a chance to go to Miami, check this place out. You will be hooked immediately and never want to leave. When you do leave, you will hear the dings and blips and boops of the arcade calling you to come back. Its an amazing experience.
