As per so many reviews, there was, indeed, 10 cent Skeeball and a ton of quarter pinball machines. My daughter and her boyfriend spent a lot of time here during our week in Ocean City. The arcade is open 24 hour a day, so many people end their night here when the Boardwalk closes. They also have an old-school hockey... More

Jilly's is always open for a nice diversion. Love the 10-cent skee ball (bring dimes! although you can still get some from the staff) and air hockey tables. Lots of old-time pinball machines, too.

We rented two bikes and surry from Jilly's. The service was good and fast. The bikes and surry were in very good condition. The price was fair ($15 for double surry and $7 for each bike for an hour). It was a nice morning activity, and the location was perfect.

Lots of fun games to play for a reasonable price but there were no tickets to be earned to cash in for prizes.

I stopped in the arcade with my 14 year old daughter. We played skeeball, air hockey and pin ball. It brought back memories of my teenage years hanging out in the arcade. My daughter never played pinball before so it was fun showing her the ropes. There is a large selection of pinball machines in the arcade.

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!
