80s music playing, some new pop as well on the overhead. If heaven includes an arcade like this I am there! Lots of old machines, regular price and friendly attendants. Played machines from every decade of my life. Really neat place. Hydrate with some of...More

Not only does this arcade have coin-op games dating back a half century or more, many of them still take the same coins. That nickel basketball game is still a nickel. Several classic pinball machines still take just a dime. There's even a bizarre old...More

I can remember coming here with my grandparents 20 years ago when I was a kid, and it hasn't changed a bit. That doesn't mean it's rundown though. Quite the contrary, it's maintained very nicely and extremely clean. My 3 and 6 year olds loved...More

Arcade Amusements may not excite today's jaded teens, but game collectors must palpitate a little when they enter the place for the first time. The arcade's collection of machines is so large that several buildings are required to house it--------this place is the Smithsonian of...More

If you love arcade games, this is the place for you. Penny peep-shows, decades of pinball, skee-ball, Pac-Man, and more. The best part is NO TOKENS. Each game costs exactly what it cost when I played them as a kid. There's also a snack stand...More
