Terrific pinball machines.

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

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.

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

This is a nice gameroom especially if you are a fan of older games like Donkey Kong and Frogger. The upper room was under construction for awhile but seems to be completed now.

My family used to vacation in Garden City, SC every year when o was little and the Garden City Pavilion Arcade was one of me and my sister's favorite things to do. They still have all of our favorite games and I'm 32 now and enjoyed that arcade with own children just as much as I did with my parents... More

Your average arcade with the typical games: skee ball, Big Bass, Deal or No Deal, Wheel of Fortune. Almost everything was working. Kids had fun.

This was not an extremely impressive arcade, but my husband and I did enjoy playing some of the nostalgia games that are kept upstairs. However, it was extremely hot on the second floor. There was absolutely no air flow and honestly it smelled like body odor. We could only stay upstairs a short time. It was a little cooler downstairs,... More
