A Reddit consumer discovered one thing fairly odd inside their dentist’s ready room: An outdated McDonald’s N64 online game kiosk that had been transformed into an Xbox 360 arcade full with a number of controllers and video games.

The dentist’s workplace ready room could be a tense place as you wait to start out no matter process introduced you there. Even a easy cleansing or check-up may cause numerous stress, particularly for youthful children who might need had a number of unhealthy experiences with the tooth cleaners. So as an alternative of them taking part in video games in your telephone and killing the battery or making them learn five-month-old problems with a random vogue journal, why not allow them to play some Xbox 360 to distract them from their upcoming root canal? No less than one dentist appears to suppose that’s a reasonably good thought.

On April 16, Reddit consumer Asleep-Tumbleweed-99 posted some photos on the Xbox 360 subreddit of an Xbox 360 kiosk hanging out in his dentist’s ready room.

“Fairly cool. [Doritos Crash Course] is what I see on certainly one of them and the opposite simply has the scoreboard up,” defined Asleep-Tumbleweed-99. “It was for little children within the dentist so I didn’t need to truly play it as I’m virtually 30 and don’t need to appear to be a creep LOL.”

Whereas they didn’t play it, the consumer “needed to submit” concerning the discovery, including: “You don’t see these a lot anymore particularly an outdated Xbox 360 one.”

Shortly others chimed in, declaring that the kiosk within the workplace regarded rather a lot just like the N64 machines discovered inside some McDonald’s eating places again within the late 90s and early 2000s. Nevertheless, digging a bit deeper, this isn’t merely an outdated N64 kiosk that has had some Xbox 360 consoles shoved in it.

The actual story behind this Xbox 360 dentist kiosk

At first, I believed somebody took an outdated kiosk and cleaned it up, eliminated the McDonald’s emblem from the tall pole protruding the highest, repainted the purple dome silver, and pulled out the outdated screens and consoles. These have been then changed with three units from an organization known as KidzPace, which sells self-contained online game models designed for eating places, companies, hospitals, inns, and principally wherever else bored children is perhaps ready round.

Nevertheless, digging deeper, I found that this unit will not be a refurbished ‘90s kiosk, however a product that KidzPace used to promote. A rep informed me they not supply the Xbox 360 mannequin. However I discovered a 2017 YouTube video posted by the corporate that exhibits it off.


Wanting intently, it’s seemingly the corporate reused leftover shells from these outdated N64 kiosks as a result of—after I did extra analysis—I found that KidzPace made these outdated McDonald’s machines again within the day, too. In truth, they nonetheless make video games for the fast-food large to this present day.

If you’re curious, shopping for only one Xbox Sequence S standalone play unit from KidzPace in 2024 will price you $3395 and that doesn’t embody delivery, a rep informed me. Yikes!

Anyway, so uh, what have been we speaking about once more?

Oh proper, yeah that bizarre outdated Xbox 360 kiosk within the dentist’s workplace somebody posted on Reddit. Yeah, it’s actual. It was a factor you might purchase, and it’s in all probability not comprised of an precise outdated McDonald’s N64 kiosk. Nevertheless it seemingly shares some DNA with these nostalgic units and perhaps some plastic, too.

I’m going to cease digging into this now earlier than I discover some new piece of information that leads me down one other rabbit gap.
