OK, so my girlfriend talked me into going inside because apparently she still loves skeeball. It was preseason and after 8 pm so it was pretty empty. That said, some of the video games were pretty good even for an adult. They have the usual...More

Have been here several times and never disappointed. Great fun even without children! New games every years, clean and well maintained with helpful staff. Reasonably priced with more than decent prizes! Was able to "win" a 3 foot Red Sox banner!!
