Set high scores in the arcade

There’s something really nostalgic about the sound of arcade music and the sound of coins dropping into a vending machine. Why not relive happy childhood memories while riding a superbike, shooting hoops, challenging a friend to a dance or shooting aliens at an arcade near you? Some arcades that are still very popular are The Magic Company Arcade in GrandWest and Wonderland Arcades in Canal Walk.
