Relive Your Childhood at The Place Retro Arcade

Relive Your Childhood at The Place Retro Arcade

The Place Retro Arcade is like walking into a time capsule from your childhood. The retro games gave me so many fond memories and it was so fun to share these arcade games with my kids.

This family owned arcade started with a passion for classic arcade games that has resulted in a place that is a haven for anyone who enjoys connecting to the nostagalia of their childhood.

The owner’s goal is to eventually have the arcade filled with games exclusive to 1986 or older.

There were only 1500 of the “Computer Space” arcade games made in 1971 and only 8 of them were yellow.  You can play this unique vintage arcade game along with several others that are really rare.

All of the games are on free play and customers pay by the hour.

  1. Don’t know who’s going to have a great time going there: the parents or the kids. So many games to play, and that old pack-man arcade machine just brings back memories! That game is just so simple, it’s addicting! Thanks for sharing!
