This Massive Florida Arcade Bar Is Full Of '80s & '90s-Kid Nostalgia
Nothing says “throwback” quite like retro games and nostalgic candy from your childhood, and you can find all that and more at the largest arcade in Central Florida. With arcade and pinball games from the ’70s, '80s, and ’90s, plus modern consoles, virtual reality, and even rare and retro candy, Arcade Monsters is one giant time warp back to your childhood.
Founded by a couple of guys who grew up in the '80s playing video games, Arcade Monster’s goal is to recreate all the fun of the golden era of gaming, plus the best perks from the modern era.
Besides the Free Play Mode of the consoles and pinball games (no coins or tokens required), they also offer a retro shop holding all kinds of rare candy, ice cream, toys, cards, and comics. It’s definitely the best place to release your inner child and chow down on all those snacks your parents never let you eat!
But if you're in need of something a little more… mature, they offer light snacks, wine, and craft beer as well. You can pay $10 for one hour of play, or $16 for a wristband that allows for unlimited access all day long. And if you’re bringing non-players along, they can pay a $5 admission fee, or buy something from the bar or merch store.
The list of available games is sure to keep you busy for a while, with games from almost every genre.
From classic and racing arcade cabinets to shooters, pinball, rhythm games, and even new and indie games, there’s bound to be something for everyone.
No need to bring your own controller, and if you’re trying to pawn off some old games of your own, they’re also buying!
They have weekly deals and discounts too like Girl Gamer Wednesdays, where unlimited play is $10 for girls. On Tuesdays, if you dress up in an outfit from your favorite decade, you can also get unlimited play for $10.
