I'll also send this info to the news section, but...
Just got back from what could be the best arcade I've ever seen. In many ways, better than Funspot. I'm serious.
It's called the Pinball Wizard Arcade in Pelham, NH. It just opened about a month ago. The owner, a real champ of a lady who has been collecting and servicing pins and arcades for 30 years. A true gamer, a true lifer in a field that isn't exactly known for drawing women. The collection available for play includes about 200 games, about 120 vids and 80 pins - all in PERFECT condition and in excellent working order. In fact, of all +/- 200 games, only 2 were out of order - one of which was fixed while we were waiting to play it. My wife and I were blown away by some of the games, I mean - this was an incredible collection, featuring some games we'd never heard of, let alone played. The pins alone - Party Zone, Dr. Dude, full-and-working Banzai Run, Rescue 911 (which was awesome). As for vids - All the classics, including a gorgeous Mappy (UK, your favorite, if I'm not mistaken?) And my favorite ICE COLD BEER! The whole place was incredible. Also, they have Skee-Ball and some nice pool tables.
I got a chance to speak with the owner for a bit, she's not really what you expect. Seems like a young mom-type, but has incredible passion for her trade, space and collection. Not one button stuck, not one piece of sideart dinged. These look about as fresh from the factory as games can get.
I cannot recommend this place enough if you're in the New England area. It's only been open for a month, and already I can tell it's going to give Funspot a run for its money. It's about 45 mins from Boston if that makes any difference to anyone. I took some video and pics that I'll post up shortly.
There's not much of a web presence yet, but here's the address:
