What you'll do

You will spend one hour with Derek learning about the history of arcade games, from their creation in the mid 1970s to crash in 1982, and the resurgence of the barcade/arcade of the 2000s. We will also walk through the technology behind the machines (arcade and pinball!), look at the inside of machines and answer any questions you have!

Meet your host, Derek

Host on Airbnb since 2014
  • Identity verified
I’m co-founder of The Arcade. An amazing collection of 85 80s and 90s arcade games and 15 pinball machines.

As a child of the 80s, I grew up in a time when everyone rocked a Walkman, and anything with more that one button was a keyboard.

I’ve collected arcade machines since 1995 and have travelled the world researching and delving into the history and fun of this nostalgic culture.
