Though its wall-to-wall Japanese street-fighter games enticed many patrons, Chinatown Fair's most infamous attractions for more than 50 years were its chickens, according to an article in New York Times. The fowl competed against guests in games of Tic-Tac-Toe, and bags of fortune cookies awaited challengers who could end the chickens' impressive winning streaks. While the feathered opponents were gone when Chinatown Fair reopened in 2012, the arcade still lures plenty of gamers with arcade classics and contemporary favorites.
Washed "in bright candy colors, flashing lights and carnival-style music," as described by the Times, the arcade still keeps plenty of street-fighting games at hand, including Tekken 6 and Marvel vs. Capcom 3. Fighting alternatives include Guitar Hero, an AC/DC-themed pinball machine, air hockey, and Hoop Fever Bonus. To reward exceptional gaming, the prize counter stays stocked with goodies such as plastic green soldiers and Tootsie Rolls. The arcade's birthday packages allow partygoers to stake out a private, reserved space in the back room and unwrap presents or enjoy a slice of pizza before venturing into the main room to test their skill on the games.
