We came here with 2 - 7 year olds and 2 adults. We arrived in the morning, played for a few hours and returned in the evening. Was well worth the money.

We have a blast every time we come to Starcade! The wristband is well worth the money for all day access to old school games, pinball, and modern games for the youngins. Great stop in AC!
