Reminded me of being at a fair or carnival. But all inside at the market courtyard. It does have some bigger, modern arcade games, mixed with some classics. Just another place to waste your time and money. Even has the junk trinkets for rewards when...More

Great place for kids and adults. Awesome games. Has bowling. Just sorry I didn't get the gals name behind the counter, very nice both times I went in. A must do thing while you're on the island.

We ate here twice. We had already spent enough in food and we wanted a little something before bed. The Chinese chicken salad was delicious and the next night we had the chicken tacos. It was just enough for us. The manager was very friendly...More

Good small arcade. Nice to have restrooms, food drinks, table hockey, skee ball, bastketball, traditional and digital shooting galleries, ticket redemption prizes and driving videogames all in one place. The bowling was a let down though. Only two lanes with strangely small balls and the...More

Arcades are always fun and most of them have a certain flair. So does this one and it fits perfectly to the flair of the lovely island. Food is ok for what it is, just not enough different Cabinets, almost no classic ones (I think...More
