I showed up at 1:30pm on a weekday and played until 6:30pm. It wasn't crowded. The games haven't gotten any easier with age. They had many of the old 80's and 90's games that I remember and I played Primal Rage 2 just to say...More

Galloping Ghost is an arcade, museum, time machine and cultural wonder all in one -- and a big, ridiculous idea that's executed wonderfully and with attention to customer experience. And I can't believe I forgot to ask about origin of the name. My 14 y.o....More

We took a Lyft to and from Brookfield just to visit the arcade. So many games, a few pinball machines, not enough time. 2 hours was not enough but we had to leave. Find your favourites and stick to them if you don't have enough...More

They have tons of arcade games, I was surprised to find a Left 4 Dead arcade. Some areas are very cold, so bring a sweater or something to keep you warm. They sell snacks, but it's just candies, tiny bags of chips (for $1.50), and...More

Galloping Ghost is the epitome of an old school arcade from 40 years ago. If you enjoy playing the original electronic arcade games from long ago, you'll love this place!

Each person, young and old, costs $15 for an all day pass. If you leave and come back, you don't have to pay extra.
