There's a new gaming station in town. That is the 3 Decade Arcade located in downtown Elizabethtown.
The game shop has pinball, arcade style games, and competitive table games including foosball, billiards, and air hockey. All games are quarter operated, and the staff has plenty of quarters in case visitors do not. According to their website, they do offer electronic payment to quarter cashout, for a small processing fee.
3 Decade Arcade offers food and drinks inside the location. The gaming site has 11 pinball machines and games from the 80's to current. 3 Decade boasts of over 50 titles, including popular games from the 1980's:
- Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
- Title Fight
- Mario Bros.
- Back to the Future
- Mortal Kombat
- Frogger and more!
To best accommodate their guests, each pinball machine has a cup holder. Further, in their parental guidelines for children guests under 12 years old, they mention that each pinball machine is hand-painted or vinyl-wrapped. Thus, guests should not venture between game machines, as buttons or other accessories may scratch the gaming machines.
3 Decade Arcade is open on:
Sunday - Thursday: 2 PM - 10 PM
Friday - Saturday: 1 PM - 12 AM
