Arcade Hype: Arcade Expo 6.0, Barcade Blows Chunks, Royce's Arcade Coming Back & Neon Retro Arcade Robbed

-How does over 700 pinball machines and 550 arcade games all on free play with admission sound to you? Now your asking for admission and we're getting to it! Arcade Expo 6.0 is taking place an hour 30 or less from LA.

Arcade Expo 6.0
Friday, March 20th (2:30pm-12midnight)
Saturday, March 21st (11am-2am)
Sunday, March 22nd (11am-7pm)
Museum of Pinball
700 South Hathaway
Banning, CA 92220
$50 and up

Out near the dinosaurs you've seen in Pee Wee's Big Adventure or The Wizard also lies the Museum of Pinball and for a 6 year in a row they're throwing Arcade Expo. A place where you can just enjoy tons of old school arcade machines and I'd assume countless pinball machines from now and the past.

Also going for it:
-Starcade, play  arcade machines and pinball machines underneath the stars at night
-Swap Meet / Flea Market
-Arcade Tournaments
-Silent Auction
-Barcade still blows when it comes to the food.

Daily 12pm to 2am
Happy Hours Daily 12pm to 7pm
Just look for the Mexican food restaurant near Galco's
Free entry

Why can't they serve decent food in dis joint? It has a great selection of arcade games, not so-priced great booze, but the food, blech. Don't waste your money, you've got so many good places to get something nearby. I mean Galco's Soda Pop Stop is walking distance.

And for whatever reason they still thinks it's cool to keep the Mexican Restaurant sign up. We'll miss you el Arco iris Mexican Food. We'll miss you.

-The beloved Royce's Arcade is coming back from basically being dead with a new location in the Westfield Topanga Mall. Their social media says June 1st, but it might be later this Summer knowing how bad construction and permits are to get in LA.

-And finally, Neon Retro Arcade Northridge got robbed, but they're taking it in good spirits. Check out this real footage of the robbery set to Super Mario sounds that they posted on their official Instagram.

Neon Retro Arcade
