I didn't expect much from here due to the size but it turned out to be a good time for all. Teenage boys and younger daughter had a great time. I felt like my money went further here than other arcades I've been to. Three $20 cards lasted about 90 minutes. We all had a great time!

The arcade is small in size. The games are modern and in very good condition. The staff is friendly and helpful. Overall it was a good experience.

Went there with my 3 children. (7/5/3). The game selection seemed limited. A ton of claw games and coin pushers. Everything was a dollar to play with the exception of a few claw games. We go to a lot of arcades and this did not seem to have a good selection. I will say they had several games my kids... More

My husband and I had a great time playing the man games they have. There are no actual tokens everything is done on a card, which was great. We were like big Kids. There were lots of prizes to chose from. Kids would have a blast here. We also got extra tokens for eating next door.

We love playing arcade games like ski ball. This was the ticket to get out of the hot sun at mid day. Don't really care if we win or not and gave our tickets to a couple of kids when we were done. Spent 50 bucks but had a blast for an hour or so. Wish the would have had... More

Our little guy (3yo) is obsessed with "games". This place has them! Games range in price from 50 cents to $1.50 each. Not cheap, but no arcade is. They have a lot of different games for different ages/skill levels. You have to load money onto reloadable cards, and the cards also keep track of your "tickets". This was great for... More

A great way to let the kids have fun and get out of the sun for awhile . Clean safe atmosphere with a variety of games. We had ages 13-19 and all had a good time

So I went there with my family on a rainy day and I asked for help, and one of the employee seemed really annoyed. Also, it was kind of a waste of money for just a couple of prizes.

This place is attached to Fudpuckers. And it's so packed it's ridiculous. And of course you have to spend a million dollars to get tokens for the games. When you go to cash in you'd better have alot of points or your gonna be there forever picking out little crappy prizes you could have gotten from the quarter machine at... More
