I saw this arcade in Orlando a few months ago. Machine selection does suck huge! I love the decor though. The wall graphics and outside entrance was great! I had my wife taking pictures of me in front of the arcade and even inside. Can't explain exactly what I mean, but it even smelled like a vintage arcade. LOL!

Wow, looks like a place for a few kids to play around in for awhile, and that's about it. Nice graphics though (if a bit self-centered LOL).

You're lucky it has games in it. It could have been the King of Kong museum with nothing but photos of him everywhere. It would only cost 30 bucks to get in. What a bargain!

For all the trouble he took making the place look nice (I do like wallpaper), the game selection is just shit. NO classics? NO Donkey Kong? WTF? The theme is all wrong for that place.

King of Bong smoking is more like it. :lol:

And RT - you're right! Guy couldn't be any more full of himself.

That might be the lamest arcade I have ever seen. My home arcade is better that. Does anyone know who the picture is of the person on the right, outside the door? The one on the left is Mitchell, but I do not recognize the guy on the right.

You're right about that. For me it was cool to just see the decor. Did I spend any money there...No. Would I ever spend money to support Billy Mitchell in any way...not if my life depended upon it.

Not even for his world famous BBQ sauce? lol I can hear him secretly spilling his guts in an interview on that topic someday: "See... when somebody has my special sauce, I like to think they've got a little Billy Mitchell in 'em and that makes me feel good. Real good". :rolling:

Way too many kiddie games. So he won't talk to Steve Wiebe, but he'll use Steve's picture on the banner of the arcade?

I understand the lack of classic machines because thats just the way it is these days but no Donkey Kong machine is just rediculous...WTF :?

He would be smarter to make an arcade onto his restaurant. He already pays rent for the restaurant (or owns it) so adding on a large room might be more economical.
