Old School Gaming Arcade

Last week we celebrated our daughter's 6th Birthday, and she wanted to go to Rossi's Pizza.  I had been telling my kids about video game arcade's for months, and they even created a play arcade in their rooms.  This new pizza place opened called Rossi's and it boasted a large classic arcade so it was pretty much a no-brainer that we should go their for her party.

Not only was the whole place decorated with 60s, 70s and 80s posters, toys and other nostalgia but I was blown away by how many games they had and how big the place actually was!  They had Robotron, Dig Dug, Tron, Rastan, Gauntlet, Qbert, Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong Junior, Joust, Pac-Man, Space  Invaders (cocktail version), Centipede, Tempest, Mario Bros., Mortal Combat, Contra, Heavy Barrel, Burger Time.  Plus they had quite a few Pinball machines like Doctor Who, Tales From The Crypt, Twilight Zone and a few more pinball and other videogames that I'm forgetting.

If you ever find yourself in the Madison WI area it's a great place to visit, and yes the pizza is really awesome!


  1. Hey, your daughter sure's got taste! I'd love to visit that place, regardless of the pizza! Intriguing stuff!

  2. If you're ever in the States I'll take you!
