Stopped in and enjoyed playing some of the old pinball machines. The ones with three games for a quarter. There were other games there that I played when I was a kid. It was sharp seeing the old amusements again.

So much to choose from, even though the name is a bit deceiving. There are some penny games but mostly nickel, dime and quarter(s) so bring your loose change ! Wish we had more time to explore but we will be back with the kiddos and I know they'll love it.

My boyfriend and I were really excited to go to this penny arcade since we frequent arcades in our home town. When they opened we were so excited and played all different types of games old and new. His favorite: Galaga and mine: Mars Attacks! Pinball. However, there were a few sections of the area that were locked and games... More

As a traveler one can often feel ripped off. Those cute touristy towns can often break the budget. This place is like stepping back into a different financial time in our history. All the games are still at their original price. I paid a penny to see the Sultans Harem (which ended up being an alien head on a girls... More

Wow, this was fun! Brought back good memories. Our kids loved us sharing our memories of the "old" days and the games my husband and I played when we were young. They were thrilled to be able to play all our old favorites and they were hooked too. They had fun cashing in their tickets and getting some of the... More

The arcade consists of 6 buildings full of vintage games. One building is full of skee ball which is everyone favorite. Pin ball wizards have every thing from old school baseball games to racing games. Most games are a quarter but newer digital games are more. Kids and grown ups love it.

This place had something for everyone. Pinball, skeeball, arcade games, test your strength...games from ¢1, ¢5, ¢10 and up. A game enthusiast could spend many hours there for sure. Only downside was that quite a few of the older games were out of order. Great spot to check out if you are wandering the streets of Manitou Springs.

This is a fun area to take a walk through if you are in the Manitou Springs area. There are SO many games and it's really neat to see the games from days past. We didn't stay long but it's worth a stop. It was pretty crowded while we were there so keep an eye on the kids!

On nice evenings such as the past few, this place is hopping with people of all ages. Super family-friendly. Best part is it doesn't cost anything to enter the area and wander around, so you can always decide on a whim to drop a penny, dime, or a quarter on a vintage game and not spend any sort of fortune...

The Arcade had some really cool old games and it was cheap entertainment. The demographics were a little undesirable. I lost site of my kids for three minutes and I about had a heart attack.
