Definitely for the fan of the old games. You should come here - it's a flat rate fee, the night I was there was not crowded at all; the 10 year old did not have fun, but I had a blast!

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

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.
