How much more awesome stuff can we add?

That's the town I grew up in until I was 10. Does anyone remember the original arcade that was downtown 30 years ago? I'm thinking it was also called Starport or Starcade. It had a spaceport feel to it. I'm thinking there was also an arcde at the Mountaineer mall, but my memory is hazy.

I had a lot of fond memories of sneaking out of the house and taking the tower's prt station downtown.

Kudos to you for keeping the arcade dream alive!

It was an old friend of mine, Rusty. He owned spaceport when I was a kid on High Street where Joe's is now. I spent a lot of time there when my dad was on his route headed south.

We named it Starport to pay homage to the old but also creating a new.

I still talk to Rusty. Hes a great guy and has a lot of history in coin op!

Thanks for the post. Brought back memories as a child.

Cheers!

Don't know exactly how old you are, Javaman, but the other great place to play in Morgantown back in MY day was The Wharf Rat out at the Morgantown end of the Star City Bridge. This would have been 1977-1982 era. Great line up of machines, pool table and beer. As for the Mountaineer Mall arcade location, I can't quite remember it, although I know they had one. Middletown Mall in Fairmont is where I honed my pinball skills on Centigrade 37, Wizard, Captain Fantastic, Evel Knievel and Spinout. Fairmont State College had Playboy and Bobby Orr and College Lunch had Harlem Globetrotters. This was a great area for games back in that era! Message CJM on here whenever you are in town and drinks will be on him...

This is why I do what I do. Got to have a wonderful conversation with a mother today and I am so proud to see learning incorporated in the fun we provide at Starport! I have 2 girls and values are important. This is a small piece of what we do for the community but I am so proud to help provide a creative way for kids to enjoy education.
