  • There are SO many different types of games! A lot of old games that we've never even heard of! It's fun to just walk around and see things you have never seen or get a bit nostalgic. Lots of fun, even...  more »
  • Impeccably maintained, filled with classic arcade games, just a fun trip back in time. Made me feel like a kid again, in the best possible way. I hope this place can endure for decades to come.  more »
  • Husband was in heaven. 10 and 8 year old loved trying both new and old games. Short 6 year old loved that there were stools around so he could see screens and pin ball games well enough to play. Many ...  more »

  • There is absolutely no parking! We ended up parking two blocks away and having to walk over. Only one of the many buildings had air-conditioning and all the candy that you buy with your tickets were a mushy mess. There was also vomit on the ground and none of the employees seemed to care. The games were all pretty old, which was cool to see, but a lot of the machines did not function properly.
  • Great place to play (mostly) old school video and pinball machines. They also have a lot of penny arcade machines from the 1930's-1950's. Unfortunately, a lot of the games have faded screens from being outdoors and some of the pinball machines have very weak flippers and bumpers. Overall, a fun place to visit with a very large selection of games.
  • This is a great way to kill an afternoon. This boardwalk style arcade has games as cheap as pennies. Its great fun and I love getting the chance to stop in Manitou.
  • Was awesome to play some of the old school games. The kids had a wonderful time on the kiddie rides. Great inexpensive evening.
  • Awesome arcade! Fun for the whole family. There are some games that take dimes or pennies.

Where to stay in Manitou Springs

The downtown area houses guests in lodges and or chain hotels. The town's 150-year-old Victorian-style hotel offers smaller rooms but provides historical charm, and it's withing walking distance to shops and restaurants. Booking a rental cottage or cabin just outside downtown puts you in touch with nature without being too far away from the activity in the town's center.
