This vintage video game and pinball arcade is a trip through time- you will find a black lit wonderland of 80s video games that still costs a single quarter. DJs or bands entertain on most nights, with a small cover charge on band nights. Minors are allowed during the day, but a recently added bar is opened up at 5p every night to serve beer. Climb the ornate staircase to the largest collection...

If you responsibly--but still regrettably--use all your quarters on laundry, wait until the second Thursday of each month when a five dollar cover allows free play of all (ALL!) the games. Mash those buttons to your inner-child's heart's content.

A cheap date here means feeding your sig. other's pinball machine with quarters, and her stomach with cheap fare costing you $6 and under.

Great throwback spot

A lot of great games to bring back those arcade memories! Everything worked! Superb pinball choices. Good beer but take notice... Bring cash or quarters and you need a $5 minimum to use your card for beer.

Old School Arcade

Visited this arcade based on other TA reviews. Great selection of old school arcade games that kept my Grandson busy. Visited in the afternoon and felt that the place was a bit too dark (lighting) for my comfort level.

Dude, it's Ground Kontrol. It's the greatest arcade, like, ever. Completely remodeled. Totally sweet everything.

Every classic arcade game under the sun, pinball galore (26 machines at last count), and alcohol. 'Nuff said. Oh, yeah, really cool deejay nights, too, and the most full-fledged Rock Band night in town.

New Tron-themed layout, more lounge-y space, food, upgraded bathrooms. On the...

It's like stepping into a video game. Check website for monthly unlimited play days! Minors allowed till 5pm.
