Is summer over? Let’s hang on a little longer with this slide show of the Manitou Penny Arcade’s unofficial museum of stencil art set to an audio collage of sounds from the games.

  1. Awesome. You could do a feature on just the decor and my favorite – the Derby Game.

  2. Ronwell Q. Dobbs says:

    Love It! You are wonderful to expose the life and beauty laying right under our noses, hidden by a film of farmiliarity. Great stuff again.

  3. Deborah Harrison says:

    A wonderful wallow in nostalgia. I encourage everyone to go play the Derby Game or the other great offerings before they are gone like the Mt. Manitou Incline. Once something unique is gone, we all wonder why we didn’t go there more often.

  4. Terry says:

    AWESOME! I adore Manitou, and lived there for over 12 years! Really cool photo collage – love it love it!

  5. Mary H says:

    Thanks! Makes me curious about “how it’s made” for painting old & new arcade games.

    Hey Noel,

    Based on this, I think you’ll love the band photo in the CD wallet…
