Marvin's has more games, videos and unique pinball etc to keep you and your kids bust all day. Bring lots of quarters.

Awesome place to spend an afternoon with the kids...of all ages! Bring plenty of quarters! So much to see in every little nook & cranny. Love the Wine-O! Can't give it away, YOU have to see this one!

We took the kids there in the 1980s & 1990s, they take their their kids there now and soon our grandchildren will be taking their children there. You find several videos that people have posted on YouTube and Google it; people rate it virtually five stars

A couple friends of ours invited us to join them in checking out this place. We had no clue what to expect, but it was outstanding. There were a bunch of old arcade, pinball, carnival games and they all worked. There were a bunch of artifacts from all over including chuck e cheese, major magic, and carnival sideshow type things.... More

Very disappointed because I thought what we would see were vintage machines. Instead the place is dark, crampped, and the machines are not very special. In fact the space was so tight that we worried about how to escape a fire or panic. We were relieved when we left.

This place is great: lots of old arcade machines which is super interesting to see.Really it is a small museum lots of games, pinball machine and trinkets everywhere. The kids like to play the games to win tickets and it is not that expensive. Great entertainment for the entire family.

We took our 12 year old grandkids for a couple of hours and they had a blast. It was tight quarters (pun intended) but it looked like everyone was having a great time. The kids won tickets, arcade style, and cashed them in for candy. I would say 12 is about the oldest to enjoy the amusement.

As a grandfather, this place brought back a lot of memories, and both my grandchildren had a ball here. The machines, the games, the "stuff" to buy all made for a really good time.
