Fun-o-rama is like this old azz arcade place right on the Short Sands beach, it is up in Southern Maine, USA. This beach town originally became a vacation spot for the rich and famous or at least upper class during the gilded age, Mark Twain stayed a long weekend once, anyways there are all these old type buildings that used to be grand hotels surrounding Fun-o-rama but this building is just a kid. After World War II Americans started to have the money for vacation, like regular working class Americans... my grandpa went for the first time to Fun-O-rama in 1948, the building was new, Skee-ball was a penny and the whole vacation costed him 65 dollars for the week. The rich left when the regular working man came and so now it s a very wacky mix.

The arcade has new games as well as old and winters of water damage have left the old wooden floors all wavy. It is always coated in sand and smells like salt air. When I was a kid I would see bad azzez with mohawks smoking joints by the back door, I thought that they were cool. This is a family place so naturally it is most fun to go there drunk and play a little air hockey. I suggest you check it out and put your camera on B setting and just let all those crazy flashing lights and colors slip into your lens.

Enjoy!
