They have fun games you can get a lot of tickets to win big prizes. We were in AC for a few days so we went there a few hours every day ! At 8 pm they have a drawing to win free tickets.

It's a nice arcade, basically the only one left on the boardwalk now. It's a nice selection of games of skill and skee ball and other price games too. Certainly bring your money!

A decent arcade on the Tropicana end of the boardwalk. Lots of skill games, and video games too. Bring your money! It's clean and safe.
