Kind of a labor of love for us who grew up on quarter vids. Kids are allowed, food is served, retro is current. Pretty good selection of old stand-up, console, bowling alley - type video games.

We shared a pizza, ciders and a variety of drinks and played some games. Like all arcades, it's noisy, but we had a good time socializing, eating and playing games. The pizza was tasty and the drinks were good.

Great place to take the kiddos, or to hang with friends after 9pm. The selection of games is pretty impressive as is the beer!

This place is really cool. I'm sad to say I've been ignoring Tacoma for years. I thought Seattle was the place to be, but lately Seattle offers a dirty and unpleasant experience. Traffic, parking, crowded sidewalks and out of control homelessness and pan handling have...More

Really wanted to like this arcade because of the vast array of games. We were excited to discover so many choices in one place; however, we were disappointed to see "out of order" signs on several of the pinball machines. On the plus side, forewarning...More

Many of the pinball games are 25 cents...The new high tech games, like Star Wars are @ @4.oo. Food and beer are not overpriced
