“Good Distraction for Younger Kids”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

Don't get me wrong--this isn't for everybody. If your spouse wants to go look through the kitchewares store while you watch the lids at the arcade, it's a great distraction. They're not nagging about how bored they are, and you're not getting frustrated at hearing it. Younger kids especially abound in the arcade--just as it should be. It's a cute, fun little place that looks like it belongs more on a boardwalk leading to a carnval than in a small town like Manitou Springs. If you're an adult in the comapny of another adult, you can skip over the arcade. n But if you have little kids, they'll love it.

“Not for us”
Reviewed August 25, 2012

We are a family of 5 with children ages 11, 3 and 8 months. None of the buildings allow strollers inside, so I had to wait outside with the baby while my husband played a few games with the older kids. That was disappointing as we were looking forward to a family skeeball tournament. Also, many of the signs and windows say "penny arcade", it isn't actually a penny arcade, the games range in price from $.25 to $1.00. There are tons of games and mechanical rides for game lovers.

“Brings out the kid in you”
Reviewed August 24, 2012 via mobile

After convencing my husband to "play" here we had a lot of fun. Most games are only .25. We visited Colorado for our 30th wedding anniversary but felt like we were on a first date here. Lots of fun

“Fun for all ages”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

My husband and I turn into 5 year olds every year we go. We always have a ski ball contest. It really is just a place to unwind and have a good time.

“Fun time with the classic games”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

The Arcade in Manitou Springs, Colorado is such a fun time. Lots of old time games, photo booths, and surrounding activities is something you cannot miss...it is just good old-fashioned fun where everyone can have a good time!
