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.

We rented two bikes and surry from Jilly's. The service was good and fast. The bikes and surry were in very good condition. The price was fair ($15 for double surry and $7 for each bike for an hour). It was a nice morning activity, and the location was perfect.

Lots of fun games to play for a reasonable price but there were no tickets to be earned to cash in for prizes.

I stopped in the arcade with my 14 year old daughter. We played skeeball, air hockey and pin ball. It brought back memories of my teenage years hanging out in the arcade. My daughter never played pinball before so it was fun showing her the ropes. There is a large selection of pinball machines in the arcade.
