My Husband and I came here one Saturday night on a whim and found the prices to be pretty fair. We had the best time brought back so many memories definitely bringing the kids here. Also found they have group rates too so would be great for a youth group or cub scout putting!

This arcade is hands down the best arcade I've been to since the 1980's. They have a friendly staff, well-kept machines, and even an area with vintage home video game consoles. Great selection of both video arcade machines and pinball machines. Rates are reasonable at nine dollars an hour and all games are set on free play. Definitely worth the... More

This arcade is not like we had in the 80's Although there are machines from the 70 there are many from 80's today. Family atmosphere but not designed just for kids. Arcade open weekends until 2am. Pay by the hour or half hour is great that way you don't have to worry about quarters and the kids asking for more... More

Really nice selection of titles and tons of fun to be had if you were an arcade dweller in the past. The only real downside I would say is pricing. If you are a parent and have multiple children you will spend allot of money. I find it unreasonable that there is no discounted rate for children. No matter what... More

Thanks for coming out to Timeline Arcade. I am sorry you drove here and didn't look at our pricing online or call us. We feel that our pricing is at par for full family entertainment, with over 105 games to play unlimited at a price of $5 = 1/2 hour or $9 = 1 hour and 15min or $25 =... More

Ok, so i walked into this arcade and i was expecting to see games that were old and/or not fun but boy was I wrong! There is a great system there, the games are really good and all you need is a card to play for cheap! They have consoles there like the Wii U and Xbox 360. I was... More

If you hung out in arcades in the 80's I recommend you pay a visit! Walking in this arcade is like stepping back in time. It was a blast to be able to play the classic arcade games (especially the pinball machines). The prices are very reasonable and the owner is super nice. I'm so glad I found this place!

What a blast from the past! Cudos to the guy who opened this place. It is full of every game that I remember from my childhood and as a child of the 80's it was like walking back in time. Even my 11 year old son (who is hooked on Wii, IPhone apps and his DS) loved playing the original... More

I'm one of those sort of people who despises going to the mall, so when I hear from family that there's an arcade full of "retro" arcade games, I was really excited to have that diversion while others were shopping at the Hanover Mall... Note that my video game preferences are 1980's electronic games and pinball machines from the 70's-current... More
