After speaking with a few friends who recommended this place, I decided it was time to visit this place. I love how this location has the old school boardwalk feel and has everything from claw machines to skeeball. Some of the other games in here includes skill slot machines, Willy Wonka coin pushers, Wizard of Oz Coin pushers, and other games of chance. For people who want to maximize their winnings, I would suggest enrolling in their VIP program. This will allow you to join special events and give you free game play, bonus tickets, and free food. For people who play the claw machines, you will notice they do not always allow you to win 100% of the time. On average, I would say you can win possibly 1 in every 4-5 plays on a machine. In regards to the staff, they are very friendly and keep the place very clean. If you are in the area, I would suggest dropping by and spend a few hours here.

We had a blast riding some of the rides on the pier Saturday night! The swings were closed, but the roller coaster, Ferris wheel, and half pipe were super fun. Never had to wait too long and the ticket kiosks were super easy!
