A lame selection of badly maintained arcade games and consoles. Seemed to be mostly pacman. Pinballs were all broken and the still charged a full price. The toys they are selling are shockingly expensive and this is in no way a museum. Aviod!

An absolute scam. 10 USD buys you access to an n64 on a 15inch CRT tv as well as 5 or 6 retro arcades including a pinball. There are a handful of vintage gaming posters and figures on display. It is the size of a...More

This arcade has two levels. One is console games, the other arcade-style and pinball. We didn't try the console level, as, at least when we were there, you had to pay separately for each. The price when we were there was 1,000 Kr ($10) for...More

Such a simple but original idea attracting even people like me.. and I have never been much of a videogame player. We paid a certain amount (that I don´t remember now but it wasn´t that expensive) and we could play for 20 mins. You can...More

Me and my buddy are big time gamers and if you like videogames (especially old ones), you have to visit Freddi. For just 1000 krona you can play old Arcades, PS4, Gamecube, N64 and Sega Megadrive.
