*Ch3 Closing early March 23rd at 8:00pm*

How It Works

Channel 3 is a prepay to free-play classic arcade: pay a flat rate; play all day. All games are set to free play; no quarters or tokens required; day passes include access to the our console library which extends from Nintendo Entertainment System to the Playstation 4!

Alongside being an arcade, CH3 is also a video game shop. We specialize in classic games, accessories, toys, memorabilia, and oddities. We have tons of games always on hand, and are always willing to negotiate a fair deal!

We also perform video game repairs, cleaning and maintenance. Having trouble with a classic arcade cabinet? We can help diagnosis, and repair most issues related to arcade game malfunctions. Body work, water damage, monitor issues, broken buttons, broken joysticks, and more. We may not be able to fix every problem, but if we can’t get the job done ourselves, we’ll be able to get you in touch with someone who can.

Want a custom arcade cabinet built to suit your specific needs and tastes? Say no more, stop by the arcade and let us know just what you want and we can start working on a custom arcade cabinet for your home or office.
