We are still closed due to the COVID-19 Virus.


As of this week (10/23/20) Riverside County was moved back to the more restrictive Purple Tier. 


To reopen Retrovolt and other family entertainment centers within the county we need to be at the Yellow Tier. 


If you are seeing this post – it means that we are still not open to the public.


For the most up to date information on the current status of the COVID-19 Shutdown, please click the button below.


We hope to see you at the arcade as soon as we can.


Stay Safe 

All the best

About Us

Retrovolt is a family owned family friendly classic local arcade.


We have 55 classic arcade cabinets and 22 pinball machines all set to free play!


Play titles like Pac-Man, Donkey Kong, Street Fighter and many more with your friends. Show your kids the games you used to play and the music you used to listen to. Retrovolt is fun for everyone!


Thursday 4pm - 11pm

Friday 4pm - 11pm

Saturday Noon - 11pm

Sunday Noon - 9pm

We love and I mean really love, all things gaming related. But obviously we have a special passion for classic arcade and pinball. 

We have 55 video cabinets and 22 pinballs on the floor and ready to play at any one time. Most of our games range from the late 1970s to the late 1990’s but we do have a couple of modern Stern pinballs for you to enjoy also.

Because our games are subject to change we have provided a link to a google sheet with our line up. We try to keep that as updated as we possibly can but it is possible that when you come to the arcade the particular game you are looking for is not available. We apologize in advance but maintaining classic games – some as old as 40 years – can be a bit challenging sometimes 🙂 

Please click the button to download the latest version of our game list and we will see you at the arcade!

At Retrovolt all of our games are set to FREE PLAY. Guests pay per hour or purchase an all day pass. Then you can choose any game you like and press start. 



As well as being great value, our free play model is perfect for kids who like to change games frequently. It’s perfect for someone who wants to learn a game without having to pump tokens into it continuously and it’s great for guests who maybe want to try a game they haven’t played before. Best of all, have you ever wanted to complete a game like house of the dead? Well now you can!

I appreciate all the calls and emails we are getting asking for private parties or asking the question "When are you reopening?".

Riverside County is still in the most restrictive "Purple Tier" and the state has just issued (posting this 11/9/20) a limited stay at home order. So the simple answer is…not anytime soon and I have no idea when or if we will ever open again at this point.

I appreciate that everyone has differing views on this issue. I would ask kindly that you don't post political stuff on this page. I'm just trying to update our customers on our situation.

I wish you all nothing but the best and I hope that you all stay safe and well.

If I have any updates to the state of the arcade I will post them here first. Thank you all for your support #covid_19 #arcade #riversidecalifornia #inlandempire #smallbusiness

It’s been such a long time since we’ve been open. Still no idea when we can open ☹️😞 At this point I’m honestly not sure if we are going to make it. Like so many small business owners, this was my dream and my passion. I’ve been working full time on Retrovolt for the last 5 years. I went from being an enthusiast and collector to arcade owner. My brain says it’s time to close. My heart says keep fighting. #keeparcadesalive #arcade #smallbusiness #covid_19

Today is the 3rd anniversary of Retrovolt opening up our arcade in Calimesa.

We usually celebrate every year by giving away free T-Shirts, free ice cream etc. Obviously we can't do that this year.

So rather than being open and celebrating 3 years with you guys, we are working on things behind closed doors.

We are continuing to build out the new party space, repairing our games and working on projects. It's not ideal, it's far from ideal. But I count myself lucky that Retrovolt is still here and that I am able to work here.

So, with that being said. (Here comes the sales pitch) If you would like to help us out. Please consider buying a T Shirt or Gift Card from our online store – It would really help out!


Thanks again everyone. Your support for Retrovolt over the years has been immense.

All the best and stay safe!

As of noon today (7/1/20) we are mandated by the state to cease all indoor operations due to the spike in Covid-19 cases.

All indoor operations in businesses listed in the attached picture are affected. We fall under the Family Entertainment Center category.

Obviously this disappointing from a business perspective, but the absolute last thing I want to do is be responsible for making someone ill or worse.

We hope we are here on the other side of this. We took a massive knock financially last time we were shutdown and I'm not sure we can do that again. Believe me when I say, we will try to be here when this finally blows over.

Thank you to everyone who came out and supported the arcade over the last couple of weeks and thank you to everyone who has ever taken the time to come out and play in the arcade, or has just followed our adventure on social media.

Stay safe #closed #smallbusiness #covid19
