My son had a blast on his birthday.. I was hooked on the claw game that win big ROLLS of tickets..

This arcade game room is actually quite fun. I was more interested in getting the kids out of the house and didn’t really care too much about winning the tickets - although that is part of the fun for the kids. — The people here are super friendly and there are a lot of games to choose from, all costing 20 cents or less to play. $10 will last you a good portion of time and overall, the kids had fun doing so.

We had a blast. My husband, daughter and I, we really enjoyed the day there. Employees were very pleasant and friendly.

Low entry cost for even more low cost fun. They are several one nickel games and they go about to 4 nickels a play. A good balance of games to at and earn tickets on. The attendant working the counter was awesome at handling everyone's request as well as maintenance staff dealing with game troubleshooting while we were there. —— Highly —— recommend it for families with young kids looking for a fun night out or even a date night for the gamer at heart. We look forward to coming back.
