Ground Kontrol Classic Arcade has been an exhibitor and supporter of the Portland Retro Gaming Expo since our very first event in 2006. PRGE has once again partnered with Ground Kontrol and the Portland Arcade Collectors for a classic gaming experience like no other. Put simply, it will be 30,000 square feet of full-size arcade cabs and pinball machines. All awesome and all set to freeplay. It's like a museum that you can touch - pay one admission price and play all weekend.
PRGE is excited to announce that the Retrocade will be open to the public on Friday through Sunday in 2016! This adds an additional nine hours of possible gameplay time — now a weekend pass gets you thirty-one hours of space invading, power pellet-munching, street fighting, mushroom stomping, ring grabbing and silver ball flipping.
Enormous effort is required to gather such a large collection of working game machines and we could not do it without the help of both private and business game collectors from all around the Pacific Northwest. These generous donors have put their blood, sweat and tears into keeping these machines alive and it's very gratifying that they have agreed to make them available for the public at the Expo.
Can you donate an arcade or pinball machine to appear at the Retro Gaming Expo? We have several benefits for contributors from free passes to the Expo to booth space, depending on the number of machines contributed. Go to the arcade volunteer page for more information.
Arcade and pinball game list will be posted closer to the event.
