Hey Arcaders!

My wife’s family were planning a huge reunion for the beginning of August In Oregon. In doing research on Sunriver and it’s surrounding areas I found out that they had an arcade in Bend, about 25 miles from where I was! Not just any redemption style with new kiddie games and a Galaga, But a REAL WORKING classic video arcade!  And on August 4th, I had the opportunity to go to Bend (A beautiful town, by the way) and visit The Vector Volcano.  And it was awesome! The owners, Brett and Danielle were very nice and they were excited to see all the old Arcaders in and enjoying their favorites and the young Arcaders playing games that were popular long before they were born! The place was packed when I was in, and whole families were having a great time (even some of mine!)

The room is styled like an arcade right out of the early 80s! The attention to detail was amazing! The game selection would keep anyone busy for a very long time! Brett has been collecting since 1996, and it shows! Every screen clean, crisp, and vibrant, and the cabinets and their artwork have held up well- they look almost new! And all the games were working great! What I liked the most was his selection of the lesser known games- watch the video below and you will catch glimpses of Tapper, Cheyenne, Tutankham, Bubbles, Popeye, Zookeeper, and more! The even had a jukebox that played 45s in the back!

Here’s a list of the games they had while I was there-
