On my way home on Sunday, I stopped at Raceway To Fun in Newport, MN. They have go-karts, batting cages, a driving range, mini golf, and more. I have ridden past it many times but have never stopped and I've been wanting to check out the arcade.
I love video games, especially old arcade games from the 80s and early 90s. I was happy to see this place had a few classics and was pleasantly surprised that the games took real quarters, not tokens or stupid point cards. My first quarter went into Frogger and I put up a decent (certainly not great) high score.
I must have looked either completely hardcore or completely ridiculous in my leather jacket, jeans, and boots playing Hang-On. I made it through a few checkpoints on my second quarter and got the high score so I was pretty happy with that. My years of riding Harleys have finally made me a better video game player.
I also dumped some quarters into Lethal Enforcers II: Gun Fighters before leaving. I ended up getting high scores on all three games I played which probably means two things: (1) they must turn the machines off each night and (2) kids today don't like old arcade games. Regardless, I like this place and I'll be back.
