    We all know MN St Paul International is a nice place for a "wide-stance" Congressional rest room handy, but I have less ambitious plans. I have a long layover there tomorrow....I remember hearing they had an arcade there with several machines. Is that still true? Can anybody tell me where I'd find them?

    #2 4 years ago

    Well, there are two terminals. HHH terminal I know has about 4 games. The main terminal I am not sure.

    #3 4 years ago

    They did when I flew through there about 3 months ago. I *THINK* it was in terminal B, but I can't say that for sure. They're kind of tucked in a room in a corner. You don't see them until you're right up on them. Unfortunately, when I went through, there were two dudes there hogging a Mustang for the entire hour I had to spare and would not get off, so I still haven't tried that game. Good luck!

    edit: concourse B? I don't remember how it's marked.

    It's Terminal 2. The main terminal that used to be called the Humphrey Terminal. The pins are all over the different concourses. A couple here, a couple there. It's quantity vs. quality unfortunately though. You will find them, but will they be playable is another story. You should be able to find these...

    For a real treat, find the WOF there. Last time I was there a couple years ago it was running original launch code. You think the "final" code on WOF is bad? The original code had things not even registering points. It was pretty bad. I can't imagine they ever updated the code since then.

    I wouldn't count on any of them being playable.

    #6 4 years ago

    Thanks I'm sure I can find one that works. I could go for some mustang.

    #7 4 years ago

    Every time I am there the machines are in bad shape. So don't credit them up till you play a game first.

    " Minnesota" Airport? Is that like the Canada Airport on South Park?

    #9 4 years ago

    When I went through MSP a week ago the location in concourse C (close to D) was closed. Not sure if it was just the one that closed or all of them?

    #10 4 years ago

    All the machines in Terminal 2 were gone the last time I was there (2 weeks ago).

    #11 4 years ago

    Was flying out on Sept 12, stopped in an arcade in Terminal 1, concourse D if I recall correctly. When I came back through a week later, the arcade was under construction, with no signs of where the games went.

    As of 10/24/15

    In Terminal 1, Concourse F, there is small arcade near the Burger King. 3 pins: Rolling Stones Pro $0.75 , Pirates of the Carribean $0.50, and Mustang Pro $1.00. Also Ms.pac man/galaga combo, Toyko drift, skill crane, another racer and an alpine skiing game. Could not find any arcade/pins in concourse E or G of Terminal 1.

    Just walked through & saw these.

    Now we know where those titles go to die. Har har har.

    #15 3 years ago

    I know the arcade in terminal 2 has been gone for a few months now. And the one arcade near the G gates is now a diamond store.

    #16 3 years ago

    Thought I'd apologize to everyone. I destroyed the Rolling Stones machine a few days ago. RIP Mick Jagger.

    Yikes, how did that happen?

    As I recall, the last time I was there and played Mustang it was missing a slingshot rubber...likely did some damage there as it took me awhile to figure out why the one sling was erratic...a few direct hits to the switch later.

    So yeah, take a good look at the machines before dropping the quarters.

    #18 3 years ago

    It was a flimsy of course. A few good hits to start the multi ball killed him. Mustang still had the missing rubber. POTC was garbage wasn't working properly. Typical airport pinball play.

    #19 3 years ago

    That POTC didn't work very well when I went through the airport a few years ago. I see it hasn't been attended to. Those machines just get no love at all.
