How To Work Space Port Arcade's

This find is literally oozing with retro 80’s goodness! Just sit back and take in this delightful Space Port Arcade’s Staff Training Video!

[via Mall’s of America]

Space Ports were a franchised chain of shopping mall video arcades that were especially popular in the late-seventies and early-eighties. Mallrats and pretty much any teen who grew up in those days, will remember these loud and funky shopping mall gaming wonderlands. The video above (in two parts) is an interesting (and oftentimes unintentionally funny!) relic of the ’70s and ’80s shopping mall landscape–albeit from slightly more on the “inside”.

    Hehe, this is awesome. Man I love seeing the old arcades from the 80’s.

    Interestingly enough – these were a division of Atari. Which isn’t too surprising since Bally also had a chain of arcades. I discovered this while googling “Atari Adventure” which I previously thought was the only arcade properties they had.

    Huh, I had no idea, that’s really cool to know however – I also thought that the Atari Adventure was the only thing they had.
