Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

An absolutely amazing place with a fantastic variety of old and newer machines, many from the 60s and 70s, one even from the 50s, most of which I had never seen before. The variety, quality and experience far exceeded my expectations. The machines were in beautiful, almost like new condition, wonderfully maintained, immaculately cleaned and cared for. Loved the history and background information provided about each one, as well as the scoring tips. No better way to spend time on a rainy beach day! Expected to be there an hour and ended up staying for 3. Put on your favorite rock and roll shirt and immerse yourself in a fantastic unique experience!

This is a treasure. Fun. And informative. The breadth of pinball and retro machines is impressive and the history is amazing to have on display as well. Major bonus to not have to continually feed the machines.

Definitely a must visit when at the Jersey shore. Think of it if a museum of old time arcade games but you get to play them. Brought back so so many memories. Fun even for the newer generations that grew up on video games seeing them try their hands at old school games. The pay one price and play everything in the place is great. Staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. Bring friends and family and go head to head with them on the games. Just great fun.

This place is a throwback to earlier years when arcades were in fashion. While a few do exist, this experience was exceptional. A single flat fee depending on the length of your stay. For a little bit more, the price allows you to stay for 6-hours or longer

Well you may say, why stay so long? The simple truth is all the games are part of the entrance fee. You can play as many games as you like for as long as you like. Now that’s a real deal. There are hundreds of pinball, air hockey and other games. Located on the Asbury Park boardwalk, it’s easy to park and enjoy the fun. While it was a Friday afternoon in November, it wasn’t busy and we parked right in front. It’s the coolest place on Earth.

Of all the arcades on the Jersey Shore, this is the only one worth visiting. Not only is it a good value for how much you pay for admission, the place is a literal museum for pinball and arcade machines. There are rare classics here (Gemini!), with some machines from the 70’s and 80’s that are nearly impossible to find let alone get to play.

This is a yearly pilgrimage for myself and my young family and I hope to make it back here with just my wife and I for many years to enjoy the games from our youth. I just wish people realized how fortunate they are to play these machines and treat them with more reverence and care.

Such a cool and fun place. My kids had never played pinball before and were amazed by how detailed each game was. The games they had were fabulous, plus old arcade favorites, skee ball and air hockey. The staff was extremely friendly and welcoming. Games were all well maintained. All of us loved it and had the best time!
