Great fun - all my grandchildren have a good time - as do their parents and grandparents if they were honest!! Lots of different machines to play and playing for tickets for prizes is something the kids enjoy. Serious gambling for adults available if wanted. Always generally clean and tidy and staff attentive as required.

The staff were well trained, and the machines were great fun most of them were in great condition. The carpet was clean and most of it wasn't a trip hazard. We enjoyed our stay at cains amusments and the new sign is awesome!

This arcade is just over the road from herne bay beach and pier. It was very run down, but I am pleased to see they are improving it. It's an ideal shelter on a bad weather day and fun for all the family(also has an over 18 area). The gift shop (machines where you win tickets are spent here) needs... More

A nice big amusement arcade that caters for all ages and tastes. Some little 2p games for the small kiddies and big fruit machines for the big kiddies. Well enjoyed by all and we will be back

We have been coming to Cain's for over 10 years now. Used to bring our children when they were younger. We visited recently just myself and my husband. Always find lots to do here and thoroughly enjoyed our visit yet again. Will be back no doubt very soon.

Had a wonderful day out last weekend. The arcades were very enjoyable and I even managed to win on a few! I went out with my boyfriend, and the staff were very accepting that I was gay. I would recommend this fabulous establishment to any families in the area looking for a wonderful day out! I would like to say... More

Having read through some of the reviews for this arcade I really can't believe they're talking about the same place we go to.If it's a bit messy at times it's usually down to parents not teaching children to use the bins.We often take our young grandchildren there and they love the place.It's full of noise, lights and games fit for...

This ticks so many boxes.... For adults like myself. It's a trip down memory lane. Remembering the buzz of being given bags of change and being able to run off and play. There was nothing like it! Now it's my child I'm taking. And although only two she loves it. The noises. The lights. The music. And the toy prizes.... More
