At the beginning of March I linked to an article that commentor @SaraAB87 had let me know about. She had written a blog post for the Arcade Heroes website.
She has posted a couple of other articles about the arcade and some of the unique or rare games that they have:
The main reason that people visit the Skylon Tower is to go up the tower for the view, or for the restaurant. If you’ve been there, you’ve probably also noticed that the bottom level has a large arcade. I don’t think I’ve ever seen more than 20 people or so in that area. There is also a small food court with 4 fast food outlets. At one point there was a Mr. Submarine, Pizza Pizza, Dairy Queen, and a generic one. Now Mr. Sub and Dairy Queen are closed up. The signs are up for the other two, but who knows if they are actually going to be open. I don’t remember the last time I saw any of them open.

The other day I was out for a walk and I found a shiney new Dave & Buster’s rechargeable Power Card. I’ve never played at D&B before, but apparently you buy points, and then use the card to pay for the games. I was kind of hoping that the card still had some value on it, but when I went in and checked, it was empty.
I think it is safe to assume that this card is unique to Niagara Falls, since it has a photo of the Falls on the front.
From the Niagara Falls Review:
Dave and Buster’s, on Clifton Hill, is hosting its first ever Guitar Hero tournament, Aug. 19, starting at noon.
The first-place prize package consists of a Nintendo Wii, lunch for the first place finisher and five or their closest friends, and two hours of free gaming on more than 200 classic and interactive arcade games featured at Dave and Buster’s.
Second and third place winners receive Dave and Buster’s gift certificates.
