Directions & Parking Info

We feature 75+ classic video arcade machines from the 70s thru 90s. All of our machines run original classic hardware. No emulators, no Raspberry Pis, no redemption, no LCD monitors. The way classic arcade games are meant to be played. We do not currently have any pinball machines in the arcade.

Our Current Game List

We believe in friendly competition, so we have a high-score board where you can record your top scores for your favorite games! You don't have to be a record holder to record a score. Our system saves 1,000s of scores for each game so feel free to just record your own personal best to try and beat next time you come in.

Best of all we have made our high-score board available to you online so you can always check out where you rank amongst other players. More exciting new features are coming soon!

Our High Score Board

Capital City Classic Arcade is a great place to host your next party or event! Celebrate birthday parties (of all ages), anniversaries, team events, school functions, business workshops, company retreats, holiday parties, LGBTQ2+ celebrations, or just a night out with friends!
