The booths are well built and have locking doors for those who want to have some privacy. Many of the booths have glory holes for booth-to-booth watching or sharing.  The arcade has a maze of hallways that is dimly lit and a few spots for more public activity. Clean restrooms are available.  Entry fee is $60 MN for access to the booths, maze and videos. Lockers are available for $10 MN to store any valuables you may have in your pockets.  For specials and more see Cabinas Cogedera.
