A visit to Europe's biggest retro-arcade

Arcade Club, near Manchester in England, is Europe's biggest collection of classic games. Retromash went for a visit.

Let's cut to the chase. This place has over 250 arcade machines. Just take that in for a second. It's the biggest arcade in Europe. I don't know even know how many arcades in the UK had that many machines back in the 80s! Funspot and Galloping Ghosts in the US are definitely much bigger but this is still pretty massive for the UK. I obviously won't list all the machines here but what I will do is list all the ones I can think of off the top of my head without taking a breath…

It looks amazing: in addition to the 250 cabinets, there's a newly-opened floor for pinball machines, Japanese-language games that never saw the light of day in the UK, and even a restaurant!
