Galloping Ghost Arcade is a destination for gamers from all over the world.  Arguably the largest arcade in the world, they have an impressive collection of 708 games.  From Pac-Man and Donkey Kong of the 1980s to the Mortal Kombat and X-Men of later years, there is something here for every skill level. And their flat rate of $20 allows for unlimited game play and no need for coins or tokens.  Galloping Ghost Arcade has become what could easily be considered an interactive museum, archiving rare titles and restoring old titles.

Opened on a Friday the 13th in August of 2010, the arcade opened with 130 arcade games. In just four years, they were able to grow into the largest arcade in the world with 440 arcade games.  Now at 708, they are a monolith.
