Tucked away behind Fisherman's Wharf is this little gem. With a multitude of the old coin-in-the-slot fairground attractions, you will be entertained for a good hour or so. Some of the machines are a little neglected, but you will find plenty to entertain. Also, pop...More

An old arcade with coin operated machines to play. There are many games for young and old to play here. Great to see so many machines under the same roof!

Enjoyable, fun and a great place to take the kids, play and walk along the waterfront. Laughing Sal is a hoot.

Fantastic hidden gem I say hidden because most people would walk on by and not notice it. We spent HOURS in here, and had a blast. Trying out old games, showing the kids how it used to be. Games are cheap and your money can...More
