To this day, I have never once played Die Hard Arcade.

I need to remedy that...

Are there any really good arcades still out there these days? The only ones I commonly hear about are Dave & Busters, and maybe Frankie's Fun Park.

Not sure if Chuck-E-Cheese counts.

Not really unfortunately. Between home consoles being on par with the arcade and having games on your phone it's hard to make any money with anything non redemption

Well, at least there's always ski ball. That's like..., the ONE THING that arcades still have on home entertainment.

Though, I've gotta say it would be awesome to rig that up in my house somehow.

Used Ice Ball Skee ball games are like $1500 bucks, real Skee balls are like $2500. Either way you go it's 13ft long and 800+ lbs

No doubt. I think it's going to be a while before arcades are de-throned as THE place to go for skee ball (and other similar carnival-style games). Maybe one day home consoles can create a VR equivalent, but there's just something awesome about hurling a weighty skee ball up the ramp and having it go in that tiny 100,000 point corner hole.

The the police-style spinny lights and sirens are just the icing on the cake :D

With halloween coming up, I thought this might be appropriate.

Now that I think about it, how the hell do people see out of that thing? Perhaps through the 50-point hole???
