Small arcade with great prizes. They offer a “game of the week (or day?)” where you can earn double tickets, so check the signs at the prize desk. We went on a Friday night and it wasn’t over crowded.

I am appalled that the city of Newport let this place run! It is unhealthy... the smell of mold is terrible. Smaller than more modern arcades, has a decent selection of games, not the best but quite extensive given the size of the place. Selection...More

Have been here several times and never disappointed. Great fun even without children! New games every years, clean and well maintained with helpful staff. Reasonably priced with more than decent prizes! Was able to "win" a 3 foot Red Sox banner!!
