The idea is nice... and the theme 'King Of Kong' sounds great, the decoration rules! ...but why no classic games in there?  Undecided

Yeah, this thing is named "The King of Kong" and there is not even a Donkey Kong Machine? This is ridiculous. The artwork totally rules, but the classic machines are missing..

I would say the operator of that arcade had just the idea to refresh an existing game room. He got the 'King Of Kong' theme, but games were already there...But in that case, why pick up THAT theme... making such great decorations on wall...and put nothing related to it?!!!
Let's hope he plan to do it in the next step... someone have contact with that operator by the way?

The description includes this:

Quote
World famous king of kong arcade where billy will be taking back his Donkey Kong record soon

I'd assume that means there will be a machine there in the future. Of course, it may be just for the duration of the record-breaking session.

You're right, it's just an usual lame airport arcade that basically ripped KOK's artwork.
Even the cheap "arcade tent" that comes once a year in my small village has better games...
Yuk!
