Same faggot you replied to.

I went to Hershey Park recently and they had not only a quad cab out front of their arcade, but they had

TWIN DELUXE DAYTONA USA 2 POWER EDITIONS CABS

>mfw trying Daytona 2 for the first time after mastering 1.

It was amazing, hell the machine even sort of lifts up and jostles around a bit when you begin like at the start of an F-Zero GX race.

I now know my life's goal. It is to own a Deluxe cab of that and master the game.

Had sucky music and the drum was horribly unresponsive. Would not recommend.

Was lucky they had two DDR cabinets and House of the Dead, or I would have been pissed.

There are three within a few miles of each other now, two of which are bars as well. I can recommend them, 16-bit, old north arcade, and gotcha gashapon.

I didn't understand why out of all the places I could have gone I ended up in the only major city without an arcade or even a hint of a FGC. It was one of the reasons why I got the fuck out of there when I could.

All the 7-11 and other glorified gas stations near my house in the late 80's and early 90's had an arcade machine or two. Pretty common stuff like Galaga or Street Fighter, but one had Marble Madness.

Of course the malls has full arcade centers too.
