Are you missing the good ol’ days of retro classic arcades? When Aqua Net and big hair were all the rage? Never fear! Wichita has just the place for you, The Arcade!
The Arcade in Wichita opened on December 15, 2017. It is co-owned by Derek Sorrells and Michael Jensen who are arcade game aficionados. Before they opened The Arcade, they had already amassed quite the collection of arcade games between the two of them. Lucky for us, they decided to share these games with the masses and thus began The Arcade.
It is located in Old Town at 139 N. Mead Street. The Arcade has over 77 old-school retro arcade games from the 80s and 90s such as Pac Man, Galaga, Street Fighter, and even TMNT and the Simpsons games. They also have several 50 cent pinball games and pinball tournament nights. All 77 games are set to free play (except for the pinball machines).
You can enjoy a whole day of come and go fun for only $10! Kids 10 & under are $8 and pinball machines are 50 cents per game. In addition, every Thursday at The Arcade is Throwback Thursday. On Throwback Thursdays, pinball is 25 cents per game and there are 1/2 price snacks and drinks all night from 6-10 p.m.!
