The Worlds Largest Video Arcade – Funspot

Last weekend a few friends and I decided to take a road trip to check out the worlds largest video arcade at FUNSPOT in Laconia, New Hampshire. This is definitely the largest arcade i have ever been too and Funspot really has done a great job of preserving this piece of history for all gamers to enjoy. Upon entering the building, an overwhelming feeling of nostalgia came over all of us and all the sudden we were teleported back in time to when we were kids. My mind was flooded with memories of arcades i used to go to when i was younger and how much fun i had in them. The sounds of the games, smell of the machines, light from the screens, the bleeps and bloops….it was just amazing. Funspot has some of the best coin-op classic games from the 80’s and has three levels. The basement has a ton of racing games, Mortal Kombat 1-3, skeeball, a bowling alley, and tons of ticket games. The middle and upper levels collectively have about 60-80 arcade cabinets of various types. Most of the games they have are from the 80’s and 90’s. They have two original pong machines and a space wars machine too (which is extremely rare). The four of us collectively kicked the shit out of Teenage mutant ninja turtles, and each of us tried to go for the days high scores on a few respective games that we liked. Unfortunately when we arrived at funspot I realized that  my digital camera did not have it’s SD card, so i wasn’t able to get any great photos. I did however, get a great video tour of the entire video arcade museum on my cell phone. Overall the trip was a success and we had a blast! Check out this video tour from funspot!
