When I decided to check it out in early Fall 2012, just to see how things have changed after being there once in 1997 and then one small time in 2007. Whoa! It looked so shabby, dirty, and poorly maintained; the concrete parking lot was crumbling (you can even see this on Google Maps), the golfing area was overrun with weeds, and I dared to check out the interior of the building.
It was still opened, but 2/3 of the games (video games and pinball machines) were all gone and they were all selling the remaining in an "As Is" condition with most being in good-to-fair condition, but clearly taken a beating.
The around 20 people who were there (on a weekday afternoon) seemed despondent over the place of whatever nostalgia they could get out of the place, it was a former saddening, dilapidated shell of its place and I walked out of there as quickly as I came in after seeing the place.
I understand that times have changed and that arcade games are not as profitable anymore, but the place could have been reinvented similar to Dave and Buster. Oh well, a shame.
If any of you do dare to venture there, and if it still exists, the property is being sold off to Menard, brace yourself, even if you have not been there since the late 2000s. The facility should be placed out of its misery because its so bleak and poorly maintained.|

|2009-02-13||Eric||Still open, but most of the machines are very poorly maintained.|
|2006-05-28||Mike||In case anyone cares this place is still open. I'm gonna check it out again soon to see what classic games they still have. I saw Centipede from the driving range, but I'm sure there's more.|

|2005-09-07||Mark||Been there a lot of times... place is always pretty dirty looking, used to be a great arcade in the 80's... about 16 or 17 pinballs in a row which is nice, but all need some serious cleaning and work!! A lot of deluxe driving games... makes me wonder where owner gets his money to pay for all those??|
|2002-07-07||Gruelurks||I usually stop out at this place once a week for the pins, they have quite a selection.
I was told by a food bar employee that this place was going to close sometime this year, which blows!
Most games work great, the pins need a decent overhaul tho.|
