I believe you are thinking of Festival. Spent hours in there in the early 80's.

Dear god I have been trying to remember that name for years. I was somehow able to successfully recall the fact that their ads always played at Festival Cinemas but somehow could not mentally carry that over to the arcade itself. I stopped going long before I learned how to drive so I never really knew how to get there but I remember they always mentioned Escalon street in the voice overs and there was an Arby's somewhere in the vicinity.

Was it "Oh Wow!" or was that too recent?

I think there was more than 1 arcade. It was like a little franchise. The one I am thinking about was near Bullard and Blackstone. Federico's Beauty college is still there and was right next door. I want to say Penny Lane but, not sure. I'll have to ask one of my school buddies who used to go there with me, next time I see him.
