Time to Get Your Arcade On!
My son is already exhibiting signs at age 11 of a techno-lifestyle – not something that I am as excited about – that is until I need tech support!
Whether it is access to a laptop, the iPad or the Xbox – he has a real knack for it – it seems intuitive to him – from downloading software to installing the latest updates – he is on it.
My husband and I love keeping him engaged and interested and decided that this new found love for all things that beep, buzz and blink needed a field trip!
Question, where? Answer: the American Classic Arcade Museum of Laconia, New Hampshire.
What an adventure –with over 250 playable games, we were able to share with our son the games we grew up on during visits to beach side arcade or a pinball machine at a local pizza place. It gave us the opportunity to talk about changes in technology – even over such a short period of time – the past 25 years.
From the classics like Pong, Tempest and Frogger to today’s hits – it is all under one roof. It was great family time and fun for all – at the same time it gave us the opportunity to talk about where technology is coming from and where it is going – maybe my son will help take us there!
