A fun arcade with $.10 Skee Ball - can't go wrong with that! They have a variety of games for different ages and change their games each year.

We enjoyed visiting this arcade each day, sometimes multiple times a day. Games for everyone, toddlers to adults. Very family-friendly; They didn't mind 2-year-old climbing on everything. Ten-cent ski ball was a blast. AC feels great on a hot day. This is a must stop!

Jilly's has 16 pinballs. All are 25 cents! Yes some don't work that well and are not in great shape by the end of the summer, but for the pinball enthusiast it is GREAT!

We had a great time playing skeeball, pacman and a few other random games. The games are cheap to play, and there are lots to choose from. Good for any age range, too. Definitely worth checking out!

People line up at Jilly's to get to the ten Skeeball lanes. If you pay a dollar, you get eleven games. And a free game for 280 points. Best bargain on the boardwalk!
