“Just another arcade...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013

We had heard of this place and decided to give our boys a break in here. However, it is just a run of the mill arcade like all arcades. Yes, there are some machines that give you gobs and gobs of tickets. I saw one kid at a game with an enormous strip of tickets. However, it should also be noted that the "ticket prices" for items when redeeming are ridiculous. 200 tickets for a rubberband bracelet kit? Crazy. I only allowed my children a total of $10 in here. They ended up with close to 2500 tickets. This is what they got. A plastic pop up disc, a rubber band bracelet kit with small turtle charm, a fake 20 bill, a plastic dragonfly, and a gold plastic bead necklace. LAME. Now I have heard that the foot long corn dogs and sausage sandwiches are great and they smelled wonderful, however we had just eaten a funnel cake somewhere else and didn't eat here, so I cannot review the food.

“Fun for all ages”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013

My 12 year old daughter and I walked from the aquarium to Fannie Farkle's and found it to be so much fun. We spent 10 dollars playing games and she had enough tickets to buy a bear as a keepsake. And I enjoyed having fun with her.

“Fun, but not the best arcade in the area”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013 via mobile

DS is 5 and all he wanted to do was go to arcades. We saw at least 5 while in town and played at all of those. This one was fine, but not the biggest or most fun.
Fine for 30 min of fun or so, but not much more.

“Great sausage sandwich”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013

We always like to get a sausage sandwich or the foot long corndog from Fannie Farkle's. It's great to get and take to your room....
