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!

I normally don't go to arcades, but this arcade reminded me of the old 80's and 90's arcades. The 10 cent skeet ball was amazing.... You do not see prices like that anymore at all. Also, fan favorite.... Silent Scope... Definitely worth the time spent at this arcade. Would visit again!

We rented a decently priced surrey from Jilly's last week. We rented one previously from another company and barely made it past the first 30 minutes of our 1 hr rental because it was so hard to petal. We made it the full hour with Jilly's rental and could of went even longer! The greatest discovery though was the 10... More

This arcade has been in OC for as long as I can remember. It is just as fun as it was when it first opened! Well up kept, lots of games, has that "true" arcade feel. The atmosphere has that classic arcade fun land you can get lost in no matter what age!

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.
