Best Arcades in Kansas City

skeeball at arcade

Local arcades are a great spot to take your kids, tweens, and teens for a fun activity (and the adults are likely to have a blast, too!) Who doesn’t love skee-ball, pinball, and vintage games like Pac-Man? All the new games with their fancy graphics and VR would have blown our minds back in the 80s and 90s! The metro area has all kinds of arcade options from big places like Main Event and Dave and Busters to smaller arcades and VR gaming centers.

Julia Willhite
I'm Julia and I live in Olathe with my husband of 16 years, my 10 and 6 year old daughters, and our rescue pug Mabel. I’m a social worker turned SAHM and love Dr. Pepper, thunderstorms, and talking to other adults. I hate coffee, diet culture, and washing dishes. I'll talk your ear off about the best local parks and which restaurants have wronged me by changing their long-standing menu items. I try to walk the line between knowing a lot of stuff and not being a know-it-all. Some days I'm better than others.
