Boy, that brings back some fond memories of spending all of my paper
route money - one quarter at a time. Thanks for sharing!

Almost makes you cry to see that many pinballs in a row (in some of the
lower pics) That time tunnel arcade is sweet.

I think you mean that IT abused YOU.

No game since is quite the workout.

Real nice. I'm guessing these date circa 1980 since I saw a pac man in
there, but no Ms Pac. Also, that Galaxian looks outta the box new.
Man, I'd like to have one that looks like that.

Wow. Great pics. I used to manage a Time-Out Amusement Center for about
12 years. I had forgotten about the "Time Out Tunnel" Brought back some
good memories. Thanks for the link.

I used to work for Bally (Aladdin's Castle), and yep, it brought back
lots of memories. Mostly about trying to keep our meager line up of pins
running.

That's pretty cool. I just emailed the operator of the arcade I used to
hang out it. If he has some pictures, I'll scan them and post them to my
website.

What Id like to see again is the logo for a Goldmine Arcade. I have
photos after it closed and the signage was removed :(

Truly AWSOME.
Would be a great design for the Pinball Hall of Fame.

Thank you so much for sharing with RGP........If I could only step back

My HH started it's arcade service in a Time Out location. The original
inventory sticker is still attached inside the cabinet.

So, it's very cool to see those photos, yet sad at the same time. It's
too bad places like that aren't around much anymore. I do miss the good
old days.

Rescued from the dumpster. Wow.
Cool stuff. This is one of the first collection of a classic arcade.

Thanks,

This was years before the internet was hardly used, pre Windows 95, Nintendo
was just starting to catch on, judging by the fact that Taxi appeared to be
the most recent pin they had. Home videogames were still in their infancy,
so it made sense to hit the arcade to play some pins or classic vids. I
miss those days too. Around this time, the local 7-11 had a Playboy pin,
just up the steet from Golden Dome Arcade.
