Been blowing quarters here since I was a kid. Still have a few of the old machines from the 80s upstairs. Love it when my kids want to stop by. Gives me an excuse to play some games.

I've always enjoyed bringing my kids to the arcade here. Upstairs, they have older arcade games you can't find anywhere else anymore. They enjoy beating me at skee ball and earning tickets towards little prizes to take as souvenirs. Not the cleanest place, but it is nostalgic.

Entertaining, but some machines were not working or giving out tickets. Still a fun place for the kids, though.

The first floor had a lot of fun arcade games, like skeeball, Deal or No Deal, and some other fun games. The top floor was the best part, though. It had around 15 classic arcade games. Marvel vs Capcom, Super Mario Bros, Donkey Kong, Pac Man, and others. LOVED it.

This arcade is just like the most of them. They give you these tickets to get you to spend 20 dollars to get a 2 dollar item.

The arcade was fun but was much smaller than advertised. My family had a good time but we were expecting something much bigger with more selection. After going once, that was enough.

Drove here for a rainy day road trip and found 3 well - maintained pinball games and vintage video games.

We had a quick trip to Garden City this past weekend, and decided to hit this place with my family. What a trip back in time! Old school arcade games (including my 1980s favorite- Phoenix) and fun stuff like skee ball. The place is clean and the staff courteous - one of them was kind enough to take a family... More

Nice arcade for those who like playing older games like Donkey Kong and Frogger. This is the only arcade I can think of that still uses tokens, as well a tickets which you can exchange for prizes which is nice. Lots of fun and it is my my favorite arcade on the Grand Strand. Would recommend if you like playing... More
