    I live 15 minutes away from it, and a big group of us go there at least once a month :D 

    It's seriously like heaven, and I consider myself pretty lucky to live so close to the biggest arcade in the world.

    Where is this place located? There's a place in Orlando, Florida also called Funspot, or something like that, but I don't think it's the same as this arcade that is being mentioned.

    It is, they have a second, although I imagine smaller one, down in Florida. I've only ever heard about it, not sure if its a more modern game style thing, or still classic.

    And i've never seen Billy Mitchell in person, but they used to have a life-sized poster on the wall of him standing next to the Pac-Man machine. I have seen some other "pro" classic arcade gamers there, and even got to watch one of them recording a shot at the world record on Frogger.

    Arcade games are serious buisness.

    Tis a pity that actual pinball machines are getting rarer and rarer to see. Instead replaced by those really lame ass digital pinball games.

    Stern still makes real Pinball Machines but they are the only one sadly.

    It can be said that I have found my Graceland. I wish I had knew about it when I was in RI for Botcon 07. I would have made a point of going there since I was a lot closer than I am likely to be any time in the future.
