Quoted from xTheBlackKnightx:
Playland Arcade (State College, PA)
The Pennsylvania State University - University Park Main Campus
1970s, less than decade after opening in 1968.
Closed in 2003.
Operated for 35+ years by my first pinball manager and boss, Gene Steele.
Thanks xTheBlackKnightx for all the great pics of Playland from back in the 70s. Believe it or not, I actually looked closely at the people to see if I might have been in one of the photos.
I had forgotten about the free pizza days, as shown in frame 8. I recall Playland used to have a couple sheets of pizza delivered on Thursdays (probably from Highway pizza) for the customers enjoyment.
I recall there used to be an employee named Jack, who was an older man that usually sat at the change counter and could often be heard to loudly bellow: "quit beating on the machines".
Great stuff. Attached are a couple more pics of Playland from 1977. Sorry for the low Q, but they photos of photos.
