Underground Retrocade, West Dundee

#151 of 214 in Fun & Games in Illinois
The Underground Retrocade's mission is to transport players back to their original arcade experience by featuring games from the golden era, as they were played using the correct cabinets, controls, and displays. We hope to complete the experience with "background ambiance" and decor from the 80's.


First, thank you for choosing the Underground as the arcade in which you will make a lasting impression with your children. Please keep in mind: we are NOT Chuck E Cheese or a daycare. Most if not all of our arcades have been lovingly restored and require proper care and use. Smaller children may have difficulty reaching the controls and will need assistance learning how to play. We have a limited number of boosters available - please do not allow children to stand on chairs, stools, or tables. Please ensure your children do not "hang" from controls as the joysticks and steering wheels are not designed to support a child's weight - you will be held financially responsible for any damage caused.

Please directly supervise your children under 14 playing pinball.

  • 15$ wristband is a good price for unlimited play. Kids enjoyed it for the most part. Down side would be it's hot, dark, full of grown men who stand a little too close and you can't let your kids play pinball without standing on top of them if they aren't 14 which is incredibly lame
  • Just cool. They have a wide range of game options and serve nice, cold beverages at the front. Great activity for all ages!
