The Arcade at Ocean Beach Park in CT is a Treasure Trove

I have fond memories from my childhood of┬áhanging out at Ocean Beach Park in New London, VT with my cousin. Between the ocean, the waterslides and the arcade, family trips there were a blast. But I hadn’t been down there in about twenty years, so i didn’t know what to expect when I took my own kids there this week. Turns out, the palce hasn’t changed a bit. This is especially true of the arcade, which has one of the best collections of ’80s arcade machines I’ve seen in a long time. Not only did they have my favorite game ever–Jungle King–but they had a slew of others, from Pac-Man to Frogger to Space Invaders. Check it out:

I still had some skills when it came to Jungle King:
