How to Make the Most of Your Arcade Time

Arcades are great places to have fun and make memories. With so many options, big screens, and flashing lights, you are sure to have a great time. To make your experience even better, here are some tips that guarantee you’ll enjoy your time.

Go with Friends

Arcade games are the most fun when you have people to play them with. Sometimes the competitiveness of getting to play with others is what makes the games more exciting. Even with solo games, it is the best feeling to have people cheering you on.

Consider Your Budget

We all know how easy it is to go for another round. You don’t want to walk away from your experience feeling guilty for overspending. This would just tarnish your memories of arcades. Instead, decide how much you are willing to spend beforehand, load it onto your gamecard, and don’t look back. While it is tempting to add a few extra dollars for another chance at winning a game, it will be painful to go home with less in your wallet than you were hoping.

Try Out New Machines

New games are being created all of the time so don’t be surprised when you find a cool new machine at your arcade. While everyone has their go-to games, it is always worth it to add different ones into the mix. You may find that you have new favorites to add to your future trips.

Go for the Hardest Difficulty

This may seem intimidating for those that aren’t the best at dancing machines, throwing games, etc. But give it a shot at its highest level and see how it goes. Worst case scenario is that you walk away with some good laughs. Best case scenario, you find out you’re a lot more talented than you realized.

Weigh Your Prize Options

This is one of the toughest parts about time at the arcade! What prize are you exchanging your well-earned points for? If there was something you were already eyeing, go with that! Otherwise, carefully think your choice through. While it is fun to spend your tickets, it is also satisfying to save up for a bigger prize by collecting tickets from every visit.
