Illinois has a rich ddr history. Konami and betson location tested the first American eamusement network at the naperville Brunswick zone. It's since gone far down hill but it's an interesting piece of history. Ddr supernova 1 - x were tested there. Supernova 2 was online and was the only location outside of konamis HQ machine. The supernova 2 location test was recreated at mgc 2015.

Thanks everyone for a fantastic Pac-man celebration weekend here at Star Worlds. Really cool seeing so many kids love pinball and some of them are getting pretty good at The walking dead :). A special shout out to Ken who came in on Sunday and pretty much played every version of Pac-man in honor of Pac-man's B day. Have a great week everyone. Pac-mna-Pat ... See moreSee less
Star Worlds ArcadeI have to give Chris and Alex Bauer credit for turning me on to VW some months ago. It's the best tasting water I've liked. The zero has zero calories. The full flavor has over half the calories of soda..
