Sadly, now closed for good. My son will sorely miss it. And since I need to take 100 characters, I'll add that there's an arcade in Long Beach, WA, about 20 minutes north.

Husband and I stopped in before grabbing a drink down the street. He loved playing the old-school arcade games like Paperboy and Donkey King. I played Frogger. We hadn't seen games like this in ages and it was fun to unwind and kill some time.

It's very possible that this is in fact the greatest place on Earth. It was a great joy to go back in time about 25 years and play old school arcade games of my childhood. I even found I was still pretty good at some...More

You have to be grateful when stumbling onto an arcade, there are so few anymore. Even better, it is very obvious somebody put thought and creativity into this one. An homage to geekdom, a place where you could even buy retro action figures or play...More

Lots of games, old and new. My wife and I had about as much fun as our kids. Main downturn is that it is not exactly clean and can often had a foul odor...If you can get past that you will enjoy the many games...More

Lots of classic games to play for people of all ages, prices are great. We had recently been to a chain arcade in Seattle that took us 1 hour to blow through $20, this arcade took us 1 hour for $5 between 2 adults.

Great place for your kids to see what it was like before Xbox..... Tons of vintage games still only 25cents and some free daily plays.... They even have xbox one and 360's if you bring your own games.....

This is a great place to stop if you have kids. There's not a whole lot in Astoria's downtown area to keep them entertained, so an hour hear is a nice compromise. Most games run $.25 to $.75, most on the cheaper end. There are...More

This is a great place to stop in and play some great games! It only has a few pinball machines which is a bummer but it is still fun!
