The tokens were 50 cents each (which I am ok with, they can't always be a quarter), but many of the kids games were two tokens and gave out 1 or 2 tickets for kids. It's a cute place, with a nice carousel, but I wish I had spent my money elsewhere

I'm terribly sorry you didn't get good value at Wackenhammer's. We have discovered that power outages plaguing Hyannis have been resetting our games in unfavorable ways. We're doing our best to reset but apparently we missed some. Hopefully you were able to enjoy some of our free games during your visit. If you have the chance to visit us again,... More

visited in June, prizes aren't great at all when redeeming tickets but fun while playing, my husband & I gave all our tickets to some of the kids there, worth seeing them smile !

I'm glad you had fun playing the games, which is what we try to emphasize at Wackenhammer's - and why we go out of our way to stock many of the older and novel games and rides that are hard to find elsewhere. We stock quite a variety of prizes - at the moment we have everything from little parachute... More

Every game is 2 tokens and to $1 gets 2 tokens. Almost every game only produces 3 or 4 tickets. Unfriendly staff and outdated games. Dark and unwelcoming. Cute carousel and giant checkers game though.

Right on Main Street in Hyannis. Carousel goes quite fast, but the kids loved that. Not inexpensive. The bounce house was below average.

This arcade has "Feed Big Bertha", one of the best ticket games I've ever played! It is a great game for all ages, not just little kids.

We took a 3 year old here and had a good time. Carousel is fun, and the arcade is decent though (like all, it seems) only about 2 in 3 games worked. Laid back staff didn't mind when our 3 year old stood on the basketball game to get close enough and flung skeeballs around the place. Only ok value... More

My granchildren and daughter love the carousel and arcade. The little ones love to have their picture taken on the huge chair and ride the individual rides which are only 50 cents. They always leave the arcade with some type of item they won.

The carousel was adorable as was the big chair. Wished I had a young child with me. The children that were there seemed to be having a great time

And $3.00 to ride the carousel. A bit pricey I think. The carousel was fun, but the bounce house had no kids in it probably because it's so expensive. My daughter played alone. Ugh. The woman was kinda unfriendly but said she could stay in a little longer since there was no line. Big whoop. She came out and that... More
