    Depends on if you go free play or coin drop. Would you rather get people in at a set fee or pay for play and no entry fee? I’ve seen good results with both. Something geared more to kids works great on free play in my local area.

    I was going to open my own arcade. After I talked with city officials, lawyers, cpas, etc I decided it was too much of an undertaking for just me. I had a potential business partner back out and it’s too much work for one person. I already have a full time job and a family, so that left little time to focus on an arcade. There will be a lot of maintenance issues and lots of legal hoops to jump through with taxes/fees/utilities etc. I wound up putting some pins and games on location locally and hope to maybe open my own arcade the future. It’s still a dream I’d like to see come to fruition- maybe one day!

    Quoted from desertT1:

    What non-pinball games did you put out. I'd like to open an arcade of my own as well, but for now I'll just have games on location. Might have to get a storage unit soon though.

    I put out a really nice multicade and a Nintendo playchoice along with a Super Mario pin and slugfest. Mario kart, basketball games, skee Ball, driving games, shooters seem to make a lot more money than pinball. It all depends on your target audience. Different games for kids vs adults.
