We were in Newport over Thanksgiving for a mini family reunion that included our two grandsons, ages 15 and 10. They are great boys but can only handle so much shopping and cliff walking. Ryan Family Amusements was a perfect place to amuse them while the adults visited with each other, shopped and hit the cliff walk. There was a... More

I have taken my kids to this arcade many times and they seem to really enjoy it. You pre-pay for a card that you swipe in the 40 or so games. Most of the games dole out tickets you can exchange for prizes. Some games (pull down spin game for example) provide more substantial amounts of tickets than others. The... More

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.

As where the church is...you'll get 20 answers. Ask where the arcade is you'll get one. This place is it for those who want to let the kids have fun for a bit. Not a huge place but plenty of games for the kids (and adults) to enjoy. My 4 year old loves it. Typical games and typical ticket prizes.... More

Aracades, small amusement rides for children. You can play games, get tickets and choose fun prizes. Bathrooms are on sight for patrons and they are very clean. Best of all, Air Conditioned! No tokens here, you purchase a gaming card like a credit card to insert into the games.

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

Hidden amongst the many restaurants and shops on Thames St is this gem.No longer are the days of fumbling for quarters as you can "load" a game card and play till your hearts content. Sure, there's skee ball in the back, basketball shooting and a few interactive games up front. Good for young kids. What's good for parents is after... More

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.

Set the Basketball Record at 68 points. It's a play for points system where you can cash in your points / tickets for prizes.
