    As a kid, not too long ago, I remember many days spent inside this place. After many years I finally had the opportunity recently to return - and what great memories. They still have some of the classic arcade games that I remember dumping small fortunes into as a child. This place used to be called "Super Just Games" and to be honest I believe it is better now. The prices to play are extremely affordable - you could get a few hours of gameplaying on $20. That is if you don't discover their free to play games in the back....

    Kinda dumpy but cheap and awesome! Go in with $20 and you are a god. They also have a free game area. One of the last remnants of the arcade era. As the name implies the games start at a nickel a play and go up to .20-.25 cents. They have ticket machines and pretty neat prizes.

    It's cheap. But most of the games are in pretty bad condition and haven't been fixed or updated in years. If you're looking for cheap fun for a few hours, this is the place to go. But don't expect much when it comes to cleanliness or modern games.

    Having said that, it's a nice place for a cheap date that usually ends in success.

    Also... $2 entry fee per person...

    Very fun place. $2 entry fee for adults and most games seem to be $0.20 or less in nickels. They have some music games like Beatmania and DDR/ITG. They have some ticket games, but those are limited. Easy parking in this shopping center. Highly recommended.
