    Pretty stinkin' amazing! Looks just like some of the arcades I trolled when I was a kid. Especially that change maker.

    What an awesome home arcade this guy has!! I would probably have spend every dollar I make just to be around the same size arcade he has.

    That's a very impressive collection. I like that he built it over time. The dragons lair and space ace machines are particularly impressive. Those rarely work even if you can find them. The laser disk players conk out and are hard to replace. I would LOVE to have one!

    What does that guy do for a living? I want his pay check!

    I seriously had a flashback to my childhood watching that, the sounds and lighting are absolutely perfect. I think I had a tear in my eye when I heard the spyhunter music playing.

    @Anim8ormatt. The dragon lairs and space aces are expensive but there are kits that allow you to use the newer laser disc players and they run like a top. There are also kits which allow you to play both Space ace and Dragon's Lair in the same machine by simply changing the laser discs.

    I luckily own a Dragon's lair with both kits

    How about Dragon's Lair II?

    Ahhhh... Reminds me I still need to find a Crazy Climber and a Mousetrap....

    wow.. quite the game room. I don't think I'd get out much.

    looks like my house! J/K! Love it, but what a waste of space! I would have PMs Only.

    By his YouTube handle I would guess he is a retired Airline Pilot....FedEx most likely, and yes he would have had a very nice paycheck....

    Thats good to know, I have always shied away from them for the price because i thought once they were done, they were done.

    He says he was ten in 1980, so he must have retired from piloting really young

    Hmmmm..... Something doesn't sound right.

    Sorry watched it from my iphone didnt have the grey balloons til I watched it on a PC. Like I said just a guess

    #17 8 years ago

    The best part about the whole thing is he ended the tour with the MAME cabinet! Too funny.
    He could of shoved all of those games (minus the Sportsman) into the MAME and saved all of that room for more pinballs!!! Silly wabbit.
    I guess that is why I am a Pinhead first- and a VG junkie second!
    Impressive nevertheless!

    @gweempose, sadly my kit(laser con) only allows "Dragon's Lair", "Space Ace", "Thayer's Quest", "M.A.C.H.3" and "Super Don Quix-ote but you still need the laser discs for each.

    There is the laser ace kit, which is no longer made and are pretty expensive but played tons of laser games although you might need different control panels for some laser games.

    This site will tell you all you need to know about laser games although their forum isn't half as friendly as pinside but still helpful.

    The thing that I like the most about this arcade and you hear it in the video is all the
    sounds coming from the arcade machines. Nobody's even playing them and it's just like
    being in a real arcade.

    You can spend alot of time looking at videos of home arcades, this one just hits a home run
    in my book.
