Definitely for the fan of the old games. You should come here - it's a flat rate fee, the night I was there was not crowded at all; the 10 year old did not have fun, but I had a blast!

Galloping Ghost is a lot of fun, especially people who grew up with arcade video games. You pay $20 and can play all the games all day. The assortment of games is incredible. I enjoyed playing old favorites like Defender, Asteroids, Dig Dug, Joust, Battlezone,...More

I showed up at 1:30pm on a weekday and played until 6:30pm. It wasn't crowded. The games haven't gotten any easier with age. They had many of the old 80's and 90's games that I remember and I played Primal Rage 2 just to say...More

Galloping Ghost is an arcade, museum, time machine and cultural wonder all in one -- and a big, ridiculous idea that's executed wonderfully and with attention to customer experience. And I can't believe I forgot to ask about origin of the name. My 14 y.o....More

Each person, young and old, costs $15 for an all day pass. If you leave and come back, you don't have to pay extra.
