Galloping Ghost is an arcade, museum, time machine and cultural wonder all in one -- and a big, ridiculous idea that's executed wonderfully and with attention to customer experience. And I can't believe I forgot to ask about origin of the name. My 14 y.o....More

Galloping Ghost is the largest retro arcade out there, with over 600 different games to choose from. Unfortunately, there are bound to be a few each trip that are out of commission... which was extremely disappointing for me this time around, as I was looking...More
