80’s Strike Back at Pointe Orlando…

Last week my boyfriend and I took an evening trip to International Drive to go out to eat. Crazy. Spring Break and well it’s I-Drive and I was warned ahead of time, but I really wanted to go. After getting to one place and finding out it was going to be a 45-60 minute wait, we got back in the car and I drove further down the road. That’s when I saw it. The Pac-Man Cafe. I had seen commercials on tv for it, but never really knew where it was located. We made a U turn and parked in the parking garage right next to it.

We headed in and it was kind of dark, lots of things to look at especially the jelly fish creatures on the ceiling. The food was not that great. It was eatable but I was secretly hoping for better. The service was slow, and not really that many people were there to be honest. After we had our dinner of Blinky Hamburgers or was it Inky… who knows! We headed upstairs to the arcade. For $20 you can purchase a card, alot like the casino cards that keep track of your winnings and stuff, that keeps track of the time and how many points it’s worth. I have no clue what the points do, I never really asked, plus I bent the card on the way home. Oh well. But anyways, back to my story. So for $20 my boyfriend and I played all kinds of video games, air hockey, beat on some drums to music and shot at bulleseye game over looking the dining area. We left with still plenty of time on our card, but we were beat, plus by then it was 10:30 pm.

I will say I would go back just for the fun of playing video games. I have never sweat so much in my life while playing air hockey with my boyfriend, were both competative and well he won all but one game. Don’t forget if you go check out the place and you eat at the Cafe. Ask your waiter for a parking validation, so you don’t have to pay. She told us about it at the begining of the meal and we said yes, we would take one, but we forgot to make sure we got it at the end of the night. All in all. It was neat to try it out. But for me the games were worth the trip. (I can’t believe I forgot my camera on this trip!)
