    Status of Penny Arcade?

    Ok it has been a few months since I have been to the park, the last time I was there the Penny Arcade was closed for refurb. Can someone please comment on the status of the Penny Arcade? Are there still old time machines in the arcade or has it transformed into more candy shelf space? I love the old arcade and always had a great time as a child and now as an adult playing the old time games and watching the movies by turning a crank. A status update on the arcade would be most appreciated! Has anything changed, refurbished games? Does it look nicer?
    Thanks!

    There's a vibrating one in there, that's all I know.
    Peeking in, it still looks the same.
    I think I heard they were just redoing the floors.
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    During the refurb the old granite floors were replaced with faux wood. All of the counter tops were re-laquered, and inside the cash wrap they finally finally replaced the padding that the cast members stood on to keep from crippling themselves for standing in place for 8 hours a day.
    In short, new floor- its the same penny arcade games and organ that were there before, none added nor taken away. The Penny Arcade is safe and spared the axe

    Yeah I was just about to say the only thing that was done was the floor and counter tops were brought up to par.

    Indeed. With the same taffy in its display boxes that have sat there for years. Yummy yummy.
