King of Kong Billy Mitchell Opens King of Kong Arcade in Orlando Airport

Villain of the 2007 documentary The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters Billy Mitchell has opened up a “King of Kong Arcade” arcade in the Orlando International Airport, which has the aesthetic theme of the titular film. I say aesthetic theme–as opposed to regular theme–because the arcade currently does not have a Donkey Kong arcade machine, which one would assume would be essential to an arcade based on a movie based on Donkey Kong. At least the absence of the unit allows us all to make jokes about how Mitchell wouldn’t want someone beating his record in his own arcade.
