Wonderland Arcade in 1968 – This is What Arcades Looked Like Before Video Games

Located near a major bus transfer point at the corner of 12th and Grand in Kansas City, Missouri, Wonderland Arcade was a popular haunt for people of all ages with time to kill and a few coins in their pockets.

According to Retronaut, these photographs of a conspicuously empty Wonderland were created as exhibit evidence in a federal case brought against the arcade related to taxation of its penny bingo games.
