The arcade is right in the middle of the boardwalk. Plenty of game choices to keep big and little kids occupied for hours. Has been there since I was a kid

The arcade is a little run down but they do have lots of games. On the boardwalk next door there are also lots of little beachy botiques and stores so you can enjoy a stroll.

So sad to hear and see what damage was done by the fire! My kids enjoyed this place a few times over the summer as I did when I was their ages!! Hope they can rebuild bigger and better than ever!
