Today’s arcades are okay, but they are very different. They still have games, but there are a lot of “casino” styles games where you earn tickets to redeem prizes. They are fun, but not the same experience we had as kids.
Well… if you want to experience an arcade like those our youth… I have just the place. The only difference is you don’t need a pocket full of quarters.
Starcade https://starcade-ac.com/ is located in the Showboat Atlantic City Hotel. It is a retro gaming and pinball arcade with a large collection of games from the 80’s and 90s.
