Kids love this place and All the tickets they accord can be traded for prizes. It’s the best destin has to offer as far as arcade is concerned. Great for teen dates, or just a rainy day. Fun fun!

It’s a decent arcade, most of the games are dated or just not functioning well, and really most of the machines are the ones you pay to try to win tickets. I find those fun, but it’s really like training for Vegas, buy an expensive...More

Prices were fair, games were fun, and prizes were cool, loved it! I paid for a $20 card and it gave me a five dollar bonus most games for $.50 to a dollar.

Great rainy day activity, or if you just need a break from the beach. Nice variety of games, clean, not too crowded around lunch time, right bedside Fudpuckers, so first we fed the Alligators there, then went to the arcade. Kids enjoyed themselves.

Fat Daddy's has some great games and I loved the fact that your 'tickets' were loaded onto a card rather than having to carry actual tickets around (like Chuck E Cheese). Sometimes it took a few swipes to get the card reader to recognize the...More
