We used to go to this arcade when it was in the Hanover mall. It has expanded and is in a much better location now. They have everything from the old pinball machines to the brand new Xbox games. I love all the 80's arcade games. My kids get a kick out of trying the old games too. It's also... More

This arcade is top of the line filled with so many games that you could spend an entire day there and still not get to every game. They have the best old arcade games like Tapper and Dragons Lair along with new games like the new Star Trek pinball and the Xbox 1. My young neices and nephews absolutely love... More

A great way to spend an evening, evening if some of the games outdate you don't be daunted! If you get frustrated just move on to another game. There are tons of choices! =^^=

I try to visit every couple months, play pinball and classic arcade titles for an hour or two, and always leave satisfied. I'm not very good at pinball, so $9 an hour is way better than feed quarter after quarter into the machines, because that adds up quick! Parking is decent, small lot to the side of the building, and... More

Went middle of the day on a Thurs. We were the only ones there. You get a swipe card on a lanyard and can play unlimited games. Your lanyard marks the time you arrive and when you turn in your card you pay. They charge by 1/2 hour ($5) or hour ($9), then have an all day rate ($25). Rates... More

The price was great compared to other gaming places I've been. It was great to show my kids the games we had when I was a kid. I liked the time card. BUT, keep an eye on your time. I went over the time I wanted and had to pay more then I had planned. I would recommend visiting timeline... More

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
