Join us in honor of one of the most prolific arcades in the history of arcades. The legendary Twin Galaxies arcade proudly founded on Main St. in Ottumwa, Ia.. We will help you and your family relive one of the most exciting times in modern history as you explore your favorite arcade games, meet new friends, and maybe even run in to a few old ones.

This will be the first time in history that all of these events related to the history of Twin Galaxies, will be held together at the same time, in the same place.

Now you can see why we’re saying that we’re “Coming together where it began”
