“Great place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2014

My daughter is 7 and loves chuckie cheeses, this place is very similar but smaller. Sometimes you go to these kind of places and many of the games are broken. Not the case here every game WORKED. Had so much fun. We were going to the restaurant next door (too busy) so we ate pizza at Fat Daddys and made a night out of it.

“We had fun”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2014

Once we got inside, we were a bit disappointed. At first glance, it's appears very small (the one we went to is inside Fudpucker's, we thought the arcade was a separate attraction). As it turned out, we had a great time! 100 tokens for $20 kept us busy for a couple hours and I ended up winning close to 1,000 tickets by myself! They have your typical arcade games, but my favorites were Deal or No Deal, Wheel of Fortune, and a jumping rope game. Of course the prizes were your basic kiddie prizes that aren't really worth much. But overall we had a really good time here!

“Typical Arcade.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2014

Kids love it. Games take 2 to 4 tokens, so you go through them fast. Overall nice experience, all games were working and the arcade was clean.

“Took our kids for the fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2014

This was a great arcade! Our kids had fun and we may have played a little also. The game prices are reasonable, the place was clean and it was located next to one of our favorite restaurants, Fudpuckers.

“A Little Crowded, But a Lot of Fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2014

I came here with the family and everyone really enjoyed their time! Yes, it is a little crowded being that it's a large arcade in Destin, but that seems like something one should probably expect. The tokens were not very expensive and you could get 100 for $20- a much better price than other arcades I've been to.

The games were a lot of fun and the building was pretty well maintained. Some of the games would take your token without allowing you to play (I assume from the heavy use), but the attendants were quick to fix them, refunded you the token you lost, and the games were always back in working order immediately.

There were a lot of prizes and, to the surprise of everyone in our group, many good things could be "bought" with a much smaller amount of tickets than other arcades charge. Everyone who played the games got several prizes. We will be back.
