This place had hundreds of abandoned electronics. Arcades, washers, dryer, computers, TVs, refrigerators, stereos, forklifts, snow blowers (the push ones), Coke machines, ice machines, freezers, etc. There were also a few hundred boxes of cheap arcade prizes like the little basketballs, those squishy rubber balls that look like sea urchins, Martin the Martian wind chimes, and a shitload of Harley bears. The bears were dated 2003 which I would guess is when they were left here. This place was really cool and interesting but not super photogenic so I never pulled out the "real" camera and just used my phone. Enjoy!

If that's the place I think it is I've been meaning to go up there for months now. That's really cool!




Indiana Jones wasn't an archaeologist, he was an urban explorer. Archaeologists do a lot less running and a lot more paperwork.

Those Coke machines are pretty recent, maybe 10 years old or so. Interesting to see them in a place like this.




Oh good, my slow clap processor made it into this thing.

Can't believe the arcade machine are just there going to pot. There's money in them- collectors.

Wow, great find! I wonder how much it'd cost to restore the arcade games.

Super cool find! It's a bummer to see those old arcade cabs left to decay. Usually I follow the golden rule of exploring(take only pictures, leave only footsteps), but I can't deny that it'd be tempting to take one of these babies home and give restoration a shot.

that's incredibly neat. It would be fun to go to that place with a battery pack and inverter, see if any of those machines can still power up. (a friend and I have done that before, with old computers)

Those pictures make my heart hurt. Time Crisis 3? Lost World? Those are both really recent and holy expensive left to rot.

Thanks for sharing (and I want to rescue them all).
