Back in the day I can say I had some really good times at the original arcade in the local mall of my youth. It was called “Land of Oz” and truly had a dizzying amount of different games and amusements. Everything from Space Invaders and Pac-Man to mechanical rifle gun games and even a marionette show that took up the entire back wall.
At that time I was picking up what video game magazines that I could and quite a few had ads for an arcade chain called Aladdin’s Castle. I never stepped foot into one but I’m glad that Growin Up Sin City 81 uploaded this 1989 video of his visit to one during his 8th birthday party!
Some nice gaming going on in the video with the likes of Pole Position, Street Fighter, Gain Ground, NARC and many more.
