Spent an hour here with my family which was $10.00 a person. They charge different prices for different lengths of time. They give you a band that indicates the expiration time of your play. Loved seeing the first games I ever remembered playing from an Atari System. They have a very large selection of games to play. You can also... More

Silverball, located right on the boardwalk, has vintage pinball machines all in mint condition from the 50's through the 80's as well as the classic arcade video games like Centipede, Frogger and Missile...

What a treasure! Fun for all ages playing games of our teenage years while our kids can play of their childhood. There is a game for everyone to play an hour or all day long. A great visit while outside is the fantasticAtlantic ocean and Boardwalk.

I would definitely recommend getting the unlimited pass for the day. The kids had a lot of fun and there were machines from all different eras. It seems like it would be an awesome party place too if you're looking for something original.

Good thing my flux capacitor was working so I could go back....oh, it's real. Every game from my Arcadian youth together with all the pinball games you could want. Go there and feel like a teenager again.

Celebrated our daughter's 17th birthday here. We all had a blast! Not only are there pinball machines, but there's old school video games like Tetris & PacMan. There's Shuffle Bowl, Skeeball & Bubble Hockey. One reasonable price lets you play everything as much as you want. They have varying admission fees so you can pick how long you'd like to... More

For 30 minutes or more you will be transformed to your child hood. Pin ball machines ring gently, the lights flicker, old machines and new Offer players days of tines gone by
