Someday I'd like to drive over there from Long Beach and visit the business to see what it is like. A few of us soCal MAME users (Mr. Do, Karasu, Zephyr, Pete/kazzy, Gyrovision, and myself) had gotten together for past soCal MAME meets and would meet at Round Table pizza in Fullerton and then head eastward and visit Camelot miniature golf course in Anaheim Hills/Yorba Linda area to play some of the video games there.

There used to be a quality selection way back during 1980s, 1990s, and post 2000 up until about 2011 when I last visited Camelot. Camelot isn't worth going to these days for older generations, but understandable the games are meant for kids. I still believe the younger generation are missing out on better quality games that were made during 1980s and 1990s in an actual arcade environment rather than playing the same game in some computer or console environment.

If a future soCal MAME meet should take place again, maybe an excursion to Gene's store would be a place worth visiting instead, but hopefully a decent pizza place is around the area there.
