TO ARCADIA, WE EXPECT EVERYONE, WHO…

…has never been to the most popular arcade exhibition in Europe, The Budapest Pinball Museum yet would love to go back in time. (We will pay tribute to the past, among others, the 80’s, the time we were waiting for miracles, (it was the time we already had MTV and still had house parties and we mixed the both together,
… has already been to the museum but yearns for something even more grandiose,
… loves events with a family atmosphere, yet with thousands of enthusiastic visitors,
… appreciates exhibitions where some 300 arcade machines are there set to free play

Just like before, we’ll have specialties, heart-warming favourites of our childhood, and real vintages, as well. Unlike before: one more room, even more machines and surprises!
