Classic Indiana Arcade Is Making Upgrades to Become Largest in the State
The guys at High Score are at it again and this time, they've got their eye on the title of "Largest in the State of Indiana."
Eye on the Prize
Jared and Clint, the dynamic duo responsible for bringing Evansville's first-ever "bar-cade" to life in a Main Street basement in the heart of downtown Evansville, never seem to take a break. These two are always hard at work it seems. Recently, they began demolition and construction on what will be the new home of their first arcade endeavor in the city, High Score Saloon. This, of course, all began after the completion of the pair's second arcade across town in 2020, High Score Player Two. Now, they have their eyes set on another big project.
Never a Dull Moment
Since these two never seem to take any downtime, it comes as no surprise to learn that now that the move for High Score Saloon is almost complete, they have shifted their focus back to High Score Player Two. An all-ages, family-friendly arcade with a classic feel, High Score Player Two is located at 2814 Mount Vernon Avenue and features a plethora of classic pinball machines, as well as arcade and console games. They even have skee ball, air hockey, and Dance Dance Revolution. [Keep scrolling for some awesome arcade-game history!]
