Coin-operated nostalgia

I forgot to mention DisneyQuest. This is a big building in Downtown Disney which is devoted to videogames and virtual reality things, such as an area where you can design a roller coaster and then ride on it in a simulator. The special passes we got included a bunch of "Fun Visits" (good for DisneyQuest, the water parks, and Pleasure Island), so we went there a few times. I can't necessarily recommend paying the separate entry fee for the place.

However, if you used to play arcade games and are old enough to remember good ones, it is worth noting they have a whole bunch of old machines: Space Invaders, Asteroids, Gorf, Galaxian, Galaga, Pac-Man, Centipede, Lunar Lander of all things (I think the last time I saw one was in 1982), Arkanoid, Qix, Zaxxon, both Tron games, etc. And Marble Madness, which is the best arcade game of all time. Unfortunately my Marble Madness skills have atrophied a lot since whenever I last played it (1985?), so I was only able to get to the third level once.

Oh, and all these are free to play.
