Since it's a part of the Jilly's collection of boardwalk stores, it’s family friendly.And, of course, there's everybody's favorite... one of the boardwalk's most popular games, Dance Dance Revolution, which has received national attention because of its health benefits. Fun AND good for you? Now that's what we're talking about!

By far the best arcade I have ever been to! They don't overprice games. Skeeball is only 10 cents a game! The staff is very friendly and accommodating. When a machine ate our money, the gentleman gave us the change back. Check the Ocean City newsletter too because they often offer vouchers to play games for free.

I have been going to OC for 30 years. Even though I am now an adult, I still spend time in Jilly's Arcade. They have the best games, classic and new. The atmosphere is also a blast from the past. I feel like a kid again when I am there.

Jilly’s Arcade is a wonderful, long-time fixture on the Ocean City boardwalk. I went there when I was younger, we have taken our own kids, and now we have taken our grandson! Most of the games have changed and have been updated, but one favorite is the skeeball! We love playing it and a game only costs 10 cents. What... More

Gotta love the 11 games for $1 on the skeeball AND a free game if you score 280 or higher. My husband and I had a blast getting out of the sun for a while and playing some serious skeeball for cheap.

Old school arcade with old school prices. Skeeball (11 games for $1.00 !), 4 air hockey tables, pinball and lots of other favorites. Your roll of quarters actually lasts a while here.

Wow super impressed!!! All the machines work and they are very cheap in cost. I compares it to cast away cove. For example the skee ball at cast away cove is 4games for a dollar,and jillys arcade is 11games for a dollar. Just saying it's the best arcade ever👍👍👍

Our family loves going to Jilly's in the morning before it gets full. Who can beat 10 cent ski ball???! Also enjoyed the air hockey and old school video games. Lots of fun for a low cost. Clean and well-staffed.
