Our 3 boys ( 7,10 and 11) had a blast here. The 2 older ones rode the go carts several times and then finished out the night playing games. BECKY, the manager was so patient when it came to cashing in their tickets. Recommend this arcade!

We always go to Big Top when in PF. It's clean. It's loaded with games without being overwhelming. The games are well-maintained. Games for little kids through adults. Tickets are fairly easy to attain, and the prize selection is great for every level. You can even win at the claw games! Most of all, the staff is super friendly and... More

Arcade was fun for the kids but it was a bit pricey. Most games are $1-$2 each and really thought there would be more games to play

My 2 teenage girls just rode the skyscraper. They had an absolute BLAST! As did we watching them. What a thrill!! They actually rode twice & the 2nd gentleman running the ride gave them a few extra spins. Great place you have here. I'd really like to know how many feet or stories it is when the arm is stopped...
