Milpitas Golf Land is one of the only true gaming arcades left in the Bay Area. Unlike Chuck E. Cheese and most mini golf establishments, Milpitas Golf Land (MGL for short) makes sure to provide great family entertainment while not compromising its appeal to older high school and college students.
Their arcade is divided into two separate buildings… The first contains mostly children’s games, usually redemption games where kids can earn tickets and exchange them for candy and other prizes. It also features a pizza parlor.
The second contains arcade games that are suited for a more mature audience. Fighting game classics like Street Fighter and Tekken can be found there, as well as popular driving simulations like Initial D Arcade Stage and Maximum Tune. Management also does a very good job of keeping their arcade current, and regularly installs new arcade machines when new video games are released. In some cases, they even make sure their arcade has several copies of popular machines such as racing games so that their customers won’t have to wait too long to play their favorite titles.
Perhaps the best thing about MGL are their specials. They regularly have specials such as unlimited arcade play for a flat fee of $5-$10 on weeknights. Saturday mornings they hold double token promotions, slashing the cost of game tokens in half. MGL also has great package deals of pizza, soda, and tokens.
If you’re a hardcore gamer, MGL is definitely the perfect place to kill a few hours gaming. Their mini golf and pizza aren’t bad either, and their prices are always fair. Definitely give this place a try if you’re ever in the Milpitas area.
