Space Guide: Retro Arcade Machine

80’s favourite Retro Arcade Machine

Every time I saw Street Fighter in the arcade, it was like a trip straight down memory lane. During that time, I would usually spend about 80% of my time in the arcade just hanging with my friends as we smash buttons across the Street Fighter screen.

In this particular space guide series, we will guide you on how to fit these “bulky” retrocade machine into your own home.

Despite the common misconception about how bulky these arcade machines are, many are surprised by the actual footprints that pinball machines make.


Calculating The Area Required

The recommended space needed for a retro arcade machine is about 68cm x 68cm (2.2ft x 2.2ft)—slightly above 4 sqft.

An ideal spot for the machine would be to lean it against the wall next to a power socket, as the machine runs on a 240v AC voltage.

Also, remember to check out our Space Guide series if you’re interested in fitting any other game tables into your personal space or home. We’re here to help prove that building your own man cave is not a dream anymore.
