I had no idea it was still even open. I happened to be at Disney Springs last Monday and walked down there. My platinum annual pass did not work but they gave me a comp pass for a day. I'm 57 but we had taken the kids there multiple times the past several years when they were young. I wanted to check it out. It had not been updated for it looked like several years. There were about 5 "pop a shot" baskets, but only one of them was working. I'm not sure how they are even charging for it now. Or who would pay for it. It was great in it's time but it's time to go.

Gotta admit, thought this idea was shuttered. Interesting to see they are going ahead with the NBA Experience

We are still sad about this in my house. My kids love our local arcade and disney quest was always a treat for them.
It was great in its day, we used to love it, but when it started going downhill, nothing was kept up and it got to be a situation where too many of the games didn't work.
I loved the Retro floor - but the bumper cars that shot balls was great as well as the VR games -
It will be a good memory for me , I am glad my kids got to experience it too

Doesn't seem like a great idea to me, but I suppose this will be tied into the extensive NBA coverage that ABC/ESPN has?

This is how I feel about a lot of WDW these days. So much doesn't work reliably that many guests don't even know what a fully operating attraction looks like.
