Retro’s Classic Arcade is a new arcade that opened recently in Clarksville Tennessee. Dedicated to classic games, they have a good number of titles that retro game fans should enjoy. They use a payment system similar to other classic arcades are using these days – they charge an upfront admission fee of $6 and set all of the games to free play.
They have many great classics including Tron, Space Invaders (Deluxe), Asteroids Deluxe, Centipede, Pac-Man and Ms. Pac-Man, Joust, Defender, Atari Star Wars, Robotron 2049, Tempest, Street Fighter II, 1942, Pole Position (cockpit), Frogger, Q*Bert, a row of Nintendo games including Donkey Kong and Popeye and more. Overall, it’s a classic gamers dream and like any new arcade they have more to come as they expand on their ideas. I love how they have a BurgerTime machine right next to the concessions stand, great idea. Check out the pics below(click to enlarge)!
