Hi everybody. I would like to know the names of the arcades you went to. The ones I remember in my neck of the woods were Aladdins Castle, Space port and my favorite named arcade I frequented was called Wizards arcade. There were many others but I cannot remember the names.

Also, if you had an arcade what would you have name it.

The Pink Flamingo. Hmmm. Odd name for an arcade I must say. Was it run by the mob.

We had an Aladdin's Castle too. I can't remember the name of the other arcade at the other mall....

Boy, naming your arcade, that's tough.

Time Out was the bigger arcade in our mall. The Sears store had a tiny arcade in the store. My friends and I would go to the Sears arcade, because very few people knew about it. But not in the summer, because for some reason, it wasn't air conditioned, and it would get swelteringly hot in there.

That's funny. So they added The arcade but didn't want to put anymore money into it to make it comfortable.

Was watching Waynes world and there was an ad on the movie for Noahs Arcade

No it was in WI. I assumed they were everywhere, but maybe not?

We had an Aladdin's Castle in the Seaview Square Mall.

Also frequented Sandy's Arcade, Supercade, Wizard's World Arcade, Scottie's Arcade, and the Belmar Boardwalk Arcade. Nowadays there's Yestercades and the Silverball Museum on the Asbury Park boardwalk. Always a good time.
