Each game cabinet is meticulously scaled to match the original and uses authentic controls and coin mechs. Stylistic acrylic windows show the original components and inner workings of the game.

Original Boards

Every game uses the original licensed PCB. No emulators or multi-game bootleg boards.

CRT Screens

Every game uses custom built or difficult to source 9-13" CRTs that accept 15khz RGB video signal. I never use LCDs. They do not look right and introduce unacceptable lag to the game.
