New arcade featuring over 125 games opens at Santa Maria's Town Center Mall

The classic feeling of playing arcade games is staying alive in Santa Maria thanks to Rudy and Tracy Ruiz, a husband-and-wife couple who have opened an arcade with over 125 games.

The arcade at the Town Center mall includes 25 novelty pinball machines, a photo booth, crane games and is jam-packed with games from various eras.
