Presenting an authentic 80's video game arcade experience only
in Historic Downtown Hillsboro, Oregon!
The Year is 2084...
History’s best video arcade games are needed to preserve the utopia Earth has become.
However, except for the few in museums, the games as they were originally played exist only in the past.
The Chrononaut Program is created to identify and train the best-qualified person to pilot a Time Shuttle for a vital mission: Abscond with a cargo-hold full of games from 100 years in the past, and return all safely back to 2084. En route back to the future, the ship and her pilot unexpectedly drop out of time-warp in present day.
At Arcade 2084, you're a guest aboard the Time Shuttle,
playing some of the best games of the 80s!

Arcade 2084 is probably the safest arcade, ever. We've taken the space to its foundation and its cleaner than clean.

You can bring them, and buy tokens at a 1-1 exchange rate to play the games, just like in the 80s!
"How late can I be there?"
Arcade 2084 is open until 10 PM, until COVID regulations permit otherwise.

"So... you have beer?"
Yes. Yes, we do. What good would an 80s arcade be without beer popularized or introduced in the 80s?

"Can I eat and drink right at the games?"
Yes, you may. Many of the games are even in cocktail table form, for you to play seated while enjoying your refreshments. We also have dining tables, if that's your scene.
"Is this your only arcade or are you a chain?"
This arcade is one of a kind. We are not part of a chain, and..
Arcade 2084 in Hillsboro is the only one in this universe.
"Are you getting more games?"
Yes. The starting lineup will be joined by more games in the near future!
Bear in mind that COVID regulations mean dozens of the games we have in our space must remain 6’ apart and you might want to imagine you’re in a much smaller, cramped arcade if you prefer that scene.
If you are just excited to play something we don’t yet have on the game floor, keep returning to Arcade 2084 to see what's landed!
"Can I book a private event?"
Yes, we would be delighted to rent the game room to you for your private event. Some restrictions apply.
Click here for details and booking.
You can also email us with a day and time you have in mind, to discuss a rental rate, or reach out with any questions using our Contact page!
"Can I rent one or more of your games for my event?"
Yes! You can rent one cocktail-style (sit down) type of game for your event, and we can set it up with at least one game, or even a couple dozen!
Check out what games are available, and how you can rent them, on our Game Rental page!
"Can you set your games for free play instead of tokens?"
We can. However, that is unlikely. We see custom-designed tokens, like the Arcade 2084 game token, as an important part of the best 80s arcades, and they contribute to an authentic 80s experience for our guests!
"Do you have a Facebook Page?"
"Can I bring my parents/kids/pet monkey?"
Arcade 2084 invites all kinds of human guests, but please leave animal friends, or any human who might damage the games, in their own habitat.
"Do you have a no-minors allowed speakeasy?"
Psst.. There may be just such a lounge under development, in a separate area of the arcade, opening soon!
You can also always order cocktails from the game floor!
"Wait... So you're saying you're an all ages arcade, and a no-minors lounge ...both with alcohol?"
Yes. It's a special place. We know of nowhere like it.
"Where do you get your games?"
Generally speaking, we get them from the late-twentieth century.
To reach the past: We use a proprietary tachyon drive system developed in the 2080s, mated to a retrofitted conventional suborbital vehicle developed in the 1970s.
This allows the Chrononaut to acquire most of our games from various domestic locations across time in the 1980s.
Contact us if you know of one we should get in present-day.
"Do you have board games/tater tots/soup/poker/organic mung bean mead?"
No. Please enjoy the video games, music and other elements of our era-appropriate environment here at Arcade 2084, along with your favorite genuine refreshments of the 80s!
