    here some info I got from the owner:
    It will still be $15 to get in with everything on FreePlay (that will be the regular price). We are working on a frequent player card too, so the more you come the cheaper it will get. The hours are:
    Monday - Friday 1PM - 2AM
    Saturday - Sunday 11AM - 2AM (we may be open later on the weekends if people are still here having fun)

    I know there is a place in DeKalb called Star Worlds that I have been meaning to check out. It looks pretty neat, but I could never find time to go over there. http://starworldsarcade.com/ is the link to the website.

    And all we have here in the Detroit area is Pinball Pete's.... Its not a bad arcade, but they are woefully short on the classics.

    Edit: oh yeah, and Putterz right down the street next to me.

    yeah I know about it they have sponsored VGS for some time.
    would like to go but it's an hour away from me and I don't drive.
    GGA on the other hand is 15min away and my sib can always drive me and drop me off
    and pick me up.
    I plan to go there once a month.
