Expensive, but fun!!!

Most machines charge 4 tokens. That is a dollar a play!!! But nice selection of games, prizes and staff was actively testing machines and stocking tickets. But $$$ goes fast!

Typical arcade. Nothing too special. DO NOT PLAY the claw machines. I have video of the arms letting go after the snag. WASTE OF MONEY. Go for the other games.

We had a great time here as a family. Playing games with the kids was a great way to end the evening. There was a good variety of games for all ages. The only downsides were it was crowded,but that is also a sign of a good business,and 100$ is gone very quickly.

Don't go here. The staff is rude as can be to everyone. They don't care about customer service and they act like you're bothering them when something isn't working or it ate your tokens. Even the manager is rude as can be! Go next door or go to Destin. Skip this place!

We were staying in Fort Walton Florida for a week and we were sure of what to do for fun so we just drove down miracle strip parkway and passed by this arcade. We went inside and put in a few dollars for tokens and ended up having so much fun that we stayed for hours. We loved every part... More

My youngest was able to grab up 5,000 tickets in a claw machine as well as a stuffed animal. He tried and almost got me a Coach purse as well. Unlike Chuck E Cheese that we have where we live, the boys left with quality stuff. The youngest got a nice set of Sponge Bob Headphones. Both had nice Para... More

Arcade is great for families waiting to eat at Fudpuckers so that the kids have something to do. Several games had signs posted about a new Florida law saying that they could not have prizes over 50.00 in value. Some broken machines but all in all ok for a short waiting period.

Its a nice place. We took the kids there while on vacation. They enjoyed it. I wish it was bigger but it wasnt busy due to it being off season.

It seems that "arcades" these days are all about games of chance that feed you tickets to redeem for cheap trinkets, and Fat Daddy's is no exception. I think they had about a half-dozen of what I would call 'games', the rest were ticket-based machines. Maybe I'm just old-fashioned but when you're plunking 2 to 4 tokens (50 cents to... More
