Jilly's is a must for Skeeball fans with the price at 10 cents a game. My main attraction here is the pinball. Jilly's has about 14 tables and it costs only 25 cents per game, so you get a good bang for your buck. The newer tables are in very good shape, though a few older tables were out of... More

This arcade was fun for even us old heads as the kids would say. It was the ideal place to be since it was raining outside and cold for March. The games were great to play especially the Ms. Pacman and the pinball machines since that is the only thing I know how to play.

Skeeball at Jill's Arcade has become a fierce family competition. Our high score was 250, still trying to win a free game.

We had two young grandchildren with us and and they had a terrific time. In the front area there are pinball games, driving games and skeet all. I the back are all the rides. Most rides take between 1-3 tickets. It's best to buy a large amount if you have 2-3 children. If not the cost $1.00 apiece. Rides are... More

As per so many reviews, there was, indeed, 10 cent Skeeball and a ton of quarter pinball machines. My daughter and her boyfriend spent a lot of time here during our week in Ocean City. The arcade is open 24 hour a day, so many people end their night here when the Boardwalk closes. They also have an old-school hockey... More

Jilly's is always open for a nice diversion. Love the 10-cent skee ball (bring dimes! although you can still get some from the staff) and air hockey tables. Lots of old-time pinball machines, too.
