My wife was at a conference in Danvers, Mass last weekend, so I took the 3 year old a few miles down the road to Salem to go to an arcade in a sort of boardwalk-y park there. It was actually two arcades next to each other - one was called the "casino" and was 100% redemption, the other was a "real" arcade. Both were pretty cool. My 3 year old liked the redemption stuff better because there were more flashing lights, things to press and stomp on, and rides to climb on.
The "real" arcade had about a dozen classic arcade games, plus 8-10 pins. There were a lot of driving sims from the 90s onward as well, and overall a very nice arcade.
They were both cool. All games used quarters, not tokens or cards, which was great, and both had that classic arcade smell and atmosphere. Lots of fun.
I took a lot of pics, I'll update the thread when I get a chance.
