Reviving the golden era of arcade games, EightyThree in Moore is a museum-style nostalgic-trip arcade. With games like Tron, Frogger, Pac-Man, Donkey Kong, Sinistar, and more, EightyThree operates on a flat admission fee for unlimited play of the arcade games, with only the pinball machines being coin-operated. In this Uncovering Oklahoma interview, Dean Wenzel shares the story of why he started the business and what visitors can expect.
EightyThree is a fun place. While I didn’t highlight in the video, along the walls are some of Dean’s arcade history memorabilia that’s he’s collected throughout his years. One of his dreams he told me off camera is to eventually expand with a video game themed restaurant.
