I said in Arcadian that I didn’t even know where the nearest arcade was anymore. Well, I just found out. The nearest arcade to me (or the nearest I know about) is in the Scadia Family Fun Center.
Scandia is located in Fairfield, CA, about a half hour from me. It is indeed a center of fun. They have go-carts, batting cages, bumper boats, lazer tag, miniature golf, and, of course, an arcade. My friends took me there today specifically to enjoy the arcade. Alas, I didn’t get to. Miniature golf took up too much of our time. But I did snap a few pics of some of the retro games they have there.
A combination Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong Junior, and Mario Bros cabinet. Would have been cooler to see all three individuals cames in their original classic state, but this combo was still cool.
Robotron and Joust combo cabinet. Not sure you can see Joust, but it was there.
Defender. I never played this in the arcade, only on the Atari 2600. Pretty cool to find this one!
