Welcome to petesgameroom.net
Please feel free to look around. Each link above contains information about arcade restoration projects along with some pictures of the work in progress.
Wonderland Arcade – Kansas City – Late 1940′s – This is a bit before my time, but remember the feel of the arcades you used to visit as a kid? For some reason I am driven to re-create this in my basement (which is the only part of my house my wife will allow these games to go… for now…)
It’s kinda sad to see this happening all over the place. The places we used to hang out as kids, the skating rinks, bowling alleys, arcades, are closing. This is the skating rink where I was introduced to pinball, gun games, pong, space invaders, astroids, missle command… ahhhh the good old days.
I grew up in Beavercreek, Ohio and have some very fond memories. As I was looking for some imformation on the above skating rink, I came across a couple of websites, that if you are from this area, are kinda cool.

Dayton History Books Online has some posts about Beavercreek and Beaver-vu Skate that are kinda fun – http://www.daytonhistorybooks.com/board/board_topic/1550893/483842.htm
