Arcades and Pinball
There used to be arcade games
all over Sacramento. But I'm also 1,000 years old, so I remember stuff
like that. I really like Robotron, but I can't find it anywhere. I figured
I'd make a list of places with arcade games from the 70s and 80s, along
with any type of pinball.
I remember talking to an arcade
repairman and he told me that the mob used to run arcades because it's
great for money laundering. That makes sense to me, since Ballys makes
pinball games and owns casinos.
Please send me
info, I love playing old arcade games, and pinball. You should go
to the Dixon Pin-a-Go-Go.
It's held in Dixon in May (usually? always?). We're also close enough
to Santa Cruz - they have a pinball/arcade
show held in August I think.
Just a rough idea right now,
but try hitting these places. I'll eventually list what games they have.
- Watt Bowling Alley
Watt & El Camino
Tons of games. Mostly new stuff but there's still plenty of pinball
19th & J
They just let broken games sit there, but they got rid of Paperboy
Victoria's Mexican Restaurant
West Sac - off Jefferson
Cocktail Pacman, Donkey Kong, and about 4 other stand-ups
