Still 10¢ Skeeball!

People line up at Jilly's to get to the ten Skeeball lanes. If you pay a dollar, you get eleven games. And a free game for 280 points. Best bargain on the boardwalk!

This spot is a great place to cool down and have fun. We stopped in to play a little air hockey ($1) and some ski-ball ($1 for 11 games with 9 balls each). The air conditioning was lovely on a hot humid day and the amusements were nice for families. There were several crane games where you would be allowed... More

Jilly's Arcade is great fun for the kids and adults alike. Many pinball machines to get your fill of. They also have many skill levels of machines for any age group. This place is awesome on that very hot day or a good place to get out of the house on that rainy day.

My family enjoyed a couple of hours here when we had our fill of the beach. Clean, not too crowded, well run and prices that you can afford. Skee ball was the best bargain and we had a ball!

Jilly's is a must for Skeeball fans with the price at 10 cents a game. My main attraction here is the pinball. Jilly's has about 14 tables and it costs only 25 cents per game, so you get a good bang for your buck. The newer tables are in very good shape, though a few older tables were out of... More

This arcade was fun for even us old heads as the kids would say. It was the ideal place to be since it was raining outside and cold for March. The games were great to play especially the Ms. Pacman and the pinball machines since that is the only thing I know how to play.

Skeeball at Jill's Arcade has become a fierce family competition. Our high score was 250, still trying to win a free game.
