Galloping Ghost Arcade

Back in the day, you could find an arcade within any two block radius. Almost every mom and pop shop had some sort of arcade game to play too. Arcades these days are few and far between. One of the last and best arcades in the Midwest is Galloping Ghost Arcade in Brookfield Illinois. The owner and founder Doc Mack joins me to explain why he decided to open an arcade and what has made him successful.

Galloping Ghost Arcade is located at:
9415 Ogden Ave.
Brookfield, IL 60513
