This Is What Arcades Used to Look Like Before Video Games Were Invented (PHOTOS)

Arcades were really rad back in the day. Just take a look at the photos from The Wonderland Arcade featured in the slideshow above.

It used to be located in Kansas City, Missouri, and was a gathering spot for countless kids and adults alike before closing its doors.

In the days before Oculus Rift and functional VR, arcades were the place to be.

We remember our parents dropping us off with a couple rolls of quarters and spending all day playing pinball, Pac-Man, Asteroids and Atari.
