My boyfriend and I visited Niagara Falls together Labour Day weekend for the second time and spent a good chunk of our visit at this spot! We are both in our early 20s but still had a great time here. For 20 dollars you can get 60 tokens, which will last you quite a while. I imagine if travelling with a family they would go faster but for the two of us, at about 2-4 tokens per game, we found they lasted us a good amount of time. The prize counter requires a lot of tickets and most of the stuff they have is pretty poor quality, but this is the same at most arcades you would find anywhere else. We actually ended up giving our tickets to a family so their little kids could get a bigger prize - we figured they would get a better use out of them than us!
We were here on an extremely busy day (that turned into night - what can I say, we love arcades!) and despite this experienced little to no waiting times for most of the games. I recommend the Ghost Ride and also the 6D moving theatre, both which are inside the Midway. If you plan on doing these attractions though, it's best to save money and buy the Clifton Hill fun pass - for two of us it was $58 dollars - but it includes both of those attractions, Dinosaur or Glow in the Dark Golf, a visit to the Movieland Wax Museum, a ride on the Skywheel and 5 free tokens. I also think the pass is even cheaper for kids. Definitely worth the money!
In terms of the Midway itself, there is a Boston Pizza just up the stairs and a Wendy's inside. The Midway is sandwiched between everything on Clifton Hill though, so you are very close to virtually every restaurant and attraction on the tourist strip. Washrooms are large and very clean and the staff are friendly. Also, we didn't use them, but noticed across from the bathroom there were small lockers available. This is a great place to check out!
