I paid my first visit to Arcade Odyssey last week and WOW! was I pleasantly surprised. What a cool place to check out. This is the one and only "True" Video Arcade that I know of in South Florida. When I was growing up in Miami there were video arcades all over the place in the late 70's, 80's and into the early 90's from stand alone locations to places in the mall to Pizza Parlors and Laundromats. Then Dave & Busters and Game Works attempted to create a video arcade experience but they really left much to be desired. And places like Boomers... Well, they shut down one building with video games and the other one is full of games with only half of them working. So I really missed the "True" Video Arcade experience and Arcade Odyssey does not disappoint. This is a place that will appeal to everyone from video game purists to little kids to big kids to parents with kids and even those that are just a kid at heart. Now, there's a little bit of something for everyone. You have the classic arcade games for those that grew up playing games like Pacman, Robotron, Burgertime and Joust, and there's the rider simulation games like the Sega Wave Runner, Nascar Car Racing and Tsumo Ball which I call the "Red Dome Battleship" artillery game. You have the first person shoot'em ups like House of the Dead killing zombies and the like. Then there's the Terminator pinball machines which are a lot of fun to play. And let's not forget the room dedicated to network connected PvP games with rumble seats where fans of Call of Duty can congregate to show off their skills. And of course the ubiquitous Street Fighter series video games. And there's many, many more games to chose from. But what makes this place unique and not just another Video Arcade is the attention to detail and the fact that all of the games are in excellent working condition which is a rarity at most places with video games. Check it out, you won’t be disappointed.
This is one of my favorite shooting ranges in Miami. The employees are very friendly, and the range is very comfortable. Whenever I visited, I had a really good time, I like to shoot outdoors. The facilities are very good, especially for rifle shooters. The first time you visit, is mandatory to pass a training site rules, but it's better this way to avoid accidents. I feel very safe being there. The prices are very cheap compared to others, such as Ace's. I recommend this range to all. Este es uno de mis campos de tiro favoritos en Miami. Los empleados son muy amables, y el campo de tiro es muy confortable. Siempre que lo he visitado he pasado muy buen rato, me gusta disparar al aire libre. Las instalaciones estan muy buenas, sobre todo para los tiradores de rifle. La primera vez que se visita, es obligatorio pasar un entrenamiento de las reglas de lugar, pero es mejor así para evitar accidentes. Me siento muy seguro estando allí. Los precios son muy baratos, si se compara con otros, como Ace's. Yo recomiendo este campo de tiro a todos.
I had my daughter's 1st bday party this weekend. They decorated the room beautifully and had everything ready for me. They even allow you to bring outside food for a fee, but what other place allows you to do that?? That alone sets them apart from the other places completely. It was a little warm and the only difference is they dont have actual private rooms so you hear what's going on in the other parties but it is a clean place with wonderful staff. The owner is hands on and very friendly. Will definitely be celebrating another birthday here and will be bringing the kids back again on weekends.
