On my trip to Pittsburgh to attend the ReplayFX expo, I made it a point to visit the PA Coin-Op Hall of Fame in Hopewell Township, PA which is about 40 minutes northwest of Pittsburgh.
After my first visit to Funspot in 2010, I posted on social media and forums numerous times that if you love golden age arcade games then you need to visit the American Classic Arcade Musem (ACAM). Now I'm telling all lovers of classic arcade games that you must visit the PA Coin-op Hall of Fame. The PA Coin-op Hall of Fame boasts over 400 coin-op machines including pinball and video games. The rare titles in the collection rival those found at ACAM.
I was floored when I saw some of the rare titles that you may not see anywhere else in working condition. There were only a few games out on the floor that were out of order but that is to be expected with these aging machines. The games I did play worked well and I have no complaints regarding controls or displays.
I paid $30 for a family of four for an all day pass. I only got to spend 3 hours at the Hall of Fame which was not enough time to play and enjoy the pieces in this collection. All the games are setup on free play or there is a free play button installed to credit up the machine.

Be sure to view the YouTube video on my channel TheRetrocade which includes a walk through and play of some of the rare titles.
Here are some photos I took of some of the rare titles and personal favorites:
