In 1977, before becoming one of Philadelphia?s few remaining arcades, University Family Fun Center was a laundromat with a few pinball machines in the corner. Games soon drew more customers than laundry, so the family-owned joint quickly morphed into a full-fledged arcade. These days, it houses many classic games, including skee-ball, air hockey, and ?(of course) pinball. Contemporary favorites also abound, including Guitar Hero and a Batman game where caped crusaders pilot their choice of 10 Batmobiles through 36 missions. A majority of the arcade?s games take the redemption model, meaning they yield tickets that can be traded for prizes such as stuffed animals and maps that lead to the secret printing presses converted by Benjamin Franklin into pinball machines. Named a top late-night bar alternative by CBS Philadelphia, the arcade welcomes gamers until midnight.
