Reclaim Arcade

A throwback to 1980's gaming nostalgia.  


In-home gaming and handheld devices might have disrupted the arcade golden age, but Reclaim Arcade recognizes that these eras are capable of coexisting with one another. Reclaim features retro attractions full of fun opportunities for those looking to relive or reclaim the past.

Guests enter a lobby reminiscent of a video rental store where they can purchase $15 all-day, free play passes. Beyond the nostalgic assortment of VHS tapes, guests step into a 1980s-themed living room, decorated with knickknacks and furniture perfect for lounging around and choosing from a selection of video games to play—from Atari 2600 to Nintendo Entertainment System.

The focused intensity of an individual game is contrasted by the nostalgic sounds of three different decades of arcade games and pinball machines in the room adjacent to Reclaim’s living room. Arcade games such as Pac-Man, Space Invaders, Star Castle, and Tron — or pinball games like Back to the Future, Attack from Mars, Stranger Things Pro, and Space Station are all available.

Reclaim Arcade participates in preserving video game history. It’s a unique environment that recaptures arcade nostalgia.
