The place needs more games. Different games because they have about 3 DDR games. The price was great. I had a good time with my family overall.

It was a reasonable experience. I had no problems renewing my vouchers but that $30 worth of game play goes quick! I bought the maximum amount of purchases I could for myself, my nephew he was visiting and my daughter. We spent $90 worth of game play in an hour and I never finished my card. I handed it off to them because the kids ran out before I did. Ended up spending an additional $40 and reloaded their cards. Thankfully these vouchers came in handy but beware at the costs of the games. Also, the employees were super nice to my daughter as she was picking stuff out and couldn't figure out what she wanted! They were patient with her. Overall a decent experience!

About Chinatown Fair

Though its wall-to-wall Japanese street-fighter games enticed many patrons, Chinatown Fair's most infamous attractions for more than 50 years were its chickens, according to an article in New York Times. The fowl competed against guests in games of Tic-Tac-Toe, and bags of fortune cookies awaited challengers who could end the chickens' impressive winning streaks. While the feathered opponents were gone when Chinatown Fair reopened in 2012, the arcade still lures plenty of gamers with arcade classics and contemporary favorites.

Washed "in bright candy colors, flashing lights and carnival-style music," as described by the Times, the arcade still keeps plenty of street-fighting games at hand, including Tekken Tag Tournament 2 and Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition. Fighting alternatives include Guitar Hero, air hockey, basketball, skee-ball, ticketed and car racing games. To reward exceptional gaming, the prize counter stays stocked with goodies such as plastic green soldiers and a large selection of candy.
