“Great place to spend time”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

Kind of like a casino for kids, offers the latest in gaming arcade action. Best part are the tickets handed out by the machines, they offer good prizes as well, best arcade I've ever seen.

“Kids will LOVE this!”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Definitely one of the bigger arcade places we've been to, the kids spent 2 hours in there easily before even realizing it. We found it to be pretty reasonably priced. Make sure to pick up some of the coupon books before buying your tokens as there are coupons in some of them to increase the amount of tokens for the same $20 you were originally going to spend.

“Awewsome”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

This is a must stop for our family every time we are in Niagara Falls. There is an unthinkable amount of games... Make sure you bring enough cash as the tokens can run out quickly with three kids playing at the same time.

Glad to hear that you enjoyed our arcade. We have many new games to play...I can imagine that it would get pricey with 3 children. We do offer $5 worth of added tokens in our Attractions coupon book located throughout Clifton Hill for future reference. ;)

Take care and we hope to see you again soon,

“things were broken”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

I used to frequent this place on a bi-weekly basis but now I don't go there much. But I tried one more time at the end of february to go again. The first thing I noticed disappointing is that their In The Groove machine has gone awkward. The screen they use now is smaller than the original screen, making the game nearly unplayable for the experienced players like myself. I also tried a random spin the wheel game which didn't work. Then finally when I went in to convert tickets to a receipt, the machine had a hard time accepting tickets.

“Big improvements!”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

We go here every time we visit NF's. it had been significantly expanded and improved since our last visit. It looked newer and cleaner and had many new games. It's an arcade-expensive and crappy prizes, which is typical, but above average. We spent $50 total for our 4 kids to play for about an hour. They each got about 40-45 tokens. Most games took 1-2 that give you tickets. Others take 3-4. Prizes were cheap and typical but there were lots of options. Attendants arrived quickly when a game broke. Overall, a good visit! Beware that inside this arcade are 2 rides (ghost hunter one and a simulator) that your kids will want to do. They cost $5 apiece or $8 for both for kids and last about 5 minutes each.

Hi there!

Yes, we have added a few more games over the last few months, did some more carpeting and not to mention we have the all new XD Ride Theatre that you mentioned inticed your kids lol. You can purchase the XD Theatre and the Ghostblasters as part of a combo that saves you a couple of dollars, just so you know for your next visit. :) OR you can purchase the Clifton Hill fun pass which offers both those rides plus 3 others and some added tokens for a discounted price...worth looking into!! We look forward to seeing you again and we are glad that you enjoyed your visit. Take care!
