Stopped in for some pizza and games. Pizza was personal size thin crust and surprisingly not bad. Disappointing that they didn’t have the white pies available. Enter the arcade for $3.

For $3 more than the 1 hour pass you get the 1/2 day pass. 6 hours for $15.00 Depends how long everyone wants to play. You do get a bracelet. If it's a beach day you might be able to come and go.
