UPDATE: 6/23/15 a lot has changed since the last owner left the place. I came to an agreement to buy half of his games because he got kicked out of his old location. My family now runs the arcade, i try my best to have the best games and keep them working. We had to get rid of some games and got new games over the time. please do stop by and support us.

There is this one arcade in stockton at a fleamarket that opens saturdays and sundays and has a nice line up of figthing games. Ive been playing here since I was 8, arcade has had 3 different owners,(New 4th owner as of February 2012) got to know the current owner and now I'm the tech.
