Arcade Amusements

It’s hard to describe this place. Five or six rooms spread out over three buildings are filled to the brim with a massive collection of coin-operated machines. There’s pin ball, kiddie rides, foot massagers, skee ball, bubble gum machines, Pac Man, and a whole lot more.

Some of the machines are over 100 years old, and the place itself has been around a very long time.

There are supposedly 80 of these kiddie rides, each costing .25 or .50. You could ride almost all of them for $25, but alas, there are weight limits.

We got four quarters and were able to play four games. Sally and I each took a turn at skee ball. I earned three tickets and Sally earned one. This gave us enough tickets to buy a miniature Tootsie Roll. We gave the tickets to a young girl who was there with her mother.

I paid .25 to discover my sex appeal and got “wild.” Sally paid the same to discover her personality. She got, “You need a friend.” The place was like the best hands-on, interactive museum ever.
