This is a small arcade. The prices of the games are very reasonable, the cheapest I saw in any arcade. $50 card for 2 kids would let them play everything. Prizes are nice.

My wife and I both like arcades. This one includes video games, etc. Prices are very reasonable - especially considering Newport prices for other entertainments.

The games are fun and the prizes are pretty decent for this old school/ Jersey Shore style arcade. Staff is helpful and while small the variety of games made for a good hour of entertainment for the family.
