Great for a cheap outing with the kids but the place is a bit cramped.

Order your pizza when you get there as it takes at least 20 minutes for it to be ready, especially if there is a birthday party

My boys love the "free play games" almost as much as the nickel games. The bag of nickels was just enough for a couple of hours of fun.

Every game is not just a nickel!!!!! Most games range between 2-4 nickels. The free classic arcade games are Great!!!!

My daughter (4 & 2) and I really enjoy this place. It has games for all ages. I like that it's much cleaner than most other places. Makes me feel like a kid again!

Even though the place was quite small and certain games do not give a decent amount of tickets ,this place is greate for big groups or for people who do not have much to spend but would like to have fun. I had fun :)

From Our Editors

Nickel City Games boasts a miniature metropolis of more than 100 video arcade games and redemption games, which require not tokens or quarters but mere nickels to play. Players compete for prize bounties at redemption games such as skee-ball and basketball, which dispense tickets to be exchanged for hundreds of family-friendly baubles. Elsewhere, visitors play classic arcade games such as Pac-Man, Contra, and Street Fighter free of charge. Staffers at an expansive snack bar serve hearty pizzas and fries, and a customizable party room hosts themed celebrations for children and round-table negotiations between rival Mortal Kombat characters.
