kind of old school?
Oct 2020
went in with the expectation it would be like old school arcade...it is not. The slots pay off in tokens that you need 500,000 for a piece of bubble gum. Expensive for what it is.

Go-Carts Rock

The best thing about the arcade are the go-carts. They charge $10, but worth it sharp turns and passing other people. It is a cool rush.

A Kid/ Family Friendly Place in Atlantic City!
May 2019 • Couples
When visiting Atlantic City, there is one thing that comes to mind..gambling and casinos. Unfortunately, this does not leave anything for kids or families to do.

However, this treasure on the boardwalk does feature Arcade Games that kids will enjoy. It's located between Bally's and the Hard Rock on the Ocean side of the boardwalk.

Arcade & Go Karts
Nov 2018 • Family
We took our 11 year old to the arcade and it was pretty fun but the claw machines that lined both sides of the entrance hall all were rigged to grab then slam hard against the mechanism when it pulled up and thus knocking out your captured prize effectively each time.

The only hope was to get it close enough to the drop so while it was swinging it would drop and hit the edge then flip into the whole. It worked but took $6 to do this for. $3 toy. LOL But it was fun and an inexpensive way to kill some time.

RIGGED Claw Machines
Aug 2018 • Friends
This arcade has gone SO downhill over the years! I use to visit this arcade when I was younger with my family. I would spend hours playing the claw machines and walk away the happiest little kid with a prize in each hand. Now?

The claw machines are SO insanely rigged that it's not even funny. They will drop anything and everything you pick up. Don't even bother playing these claw machines, you will NOT win a thing. Oh you will pick things up time and time again but the claw with drop it time and time again as well. The place is big, the place it clean, the place LOOKS impressive but I have never been in such a rigged arcade before in my life. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY HERE! Go down to steel pier and place the games there with your kids. They are not exactly the best but you have at least a CHANCE to win something there. You have NO chance to win here. I can't speak at all of their other games as I did not bother venturing any further in after the claw machines did me wrong.

Something for the kiddies to do for entertainment. Machines take quarters but each game is at least 2. They have change machines

OK but run down
May 2018 • Family
Stopped by the arcade while we were in town and it is really run down. Pretty much just claw games but they have a few others in the back.

I used to come here and play skeeball with my friends. It was a cool place to take a break from the casinos. Last trip, we were caught in a windy soaking rain on the boardwalk. We bought an umbrella from a small store. The wind broke it instantly. This building needs a renovation.
