A new retrocade type facility has opened their doors in the US, this time in Cincinnati, OH. Called The Place Retro Arcade, they celebrated their grand opening on June 8th (the same date as my own place opened actually) with 25 arcade games and”over 500 console games on 16 different gaming systems” for players to enjoy.
For the game selection, here is what they currently have to offer according to the website: Dig Dug, Joust, Centipede, Galaga Upright, Galaga Cocktail, Burger Time, Tempest, Q*Bert, Ms. Pac Man Cocktail, Popeye, Donkey Kong, Frogger, Crazy Taxi, Rally X, Mario Bros., Spy Hunter, Tron, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Mortal Kombat 4, Twin Daytona USA, Neo Geo 4 Slot, Tekken 2, Punchout, Space Invaders Cocktail, Wizard of Wor, and Millipede Cocktail.
For pinball they have three machines, Mystic, Gold Ball, and Firepower.
Their website does mention an admission fee so I believe it may be similar to other retro arcades that just charge an entry fee and the games are on free play from there. We wish them the best of luck in the new business!
now thats a retrocade 🙂
