We had fun playing in the arcade, didn't eat any of the food but it sure smelled good. The prizes did seem to cost more points than they did when we were here in December. My daughter got a much nicer prize then for less than what she got this time in July. We had fun though and will probably... More

I don't play the arcade but it looks cool. I do however grab a polish sausage and corn dog every time. Always awesome. Gotta grab you one next time.

The many games are so much fun, they even have a place to eat. Enjoy the games, the needle. Just have fun with the family.

We have been going to Fannie's for years and it never stops providing hours of fun! The prizes are finally getting to be pretty good and this place has always gave you more tickets for your money than any surrounding arcade. Plus the lemonade is amazing if you decide to try it.

This arcade is very small and the staff is less than enthusiastic. We encountered three staff members, including a manager, and they all had the same you're bothering me attitude. Go to the Space Needle Arcade instead. The staff is more pleasant and the games are spread out enough it doesn't feel so crowded.

This establishment is mainly an arcade, but also sells corn dogs, sausages and lemonade among other things. We played the Wizard Of Oz token machine. It is like any other arcade-spending too much money to try to get a few points for a prize that could have been bought for less. But, it's the fun of playing that FF offers.... More

Stopped for Philly cheese but they were done cooking them apparently. However the corn dogs were still available at the opposite counter. The server there was middle aged ...very nice pleasant guy. Got corn dogs and sweet tea. Best corn dog ever had....and gianormous!!

This has been a must do for our family for the last couple of decades. From skee-ball and arcade games to the must have sausage sandwich - we stop here - ALWAYS! The games may change and the prizes are a bit hokey and hard to obtain, but it is what it is. Noisy, crowded - and fun....
