    Do I need to bring my own quarters?
    NO. You are welcome to bring your own - a lot of our customers like to save up their quarters in a jar and then bring them out when it's full. That's great! But we do have two change machines on site that will change $1, 2, 5, 10, and 20 dollar bills.

    How much do the games cost to play?
    25 cents to 50 cents. About 2/3 of the games in Arcadia are still 25 cents to play! The same price they were since 1976. The remaining games are either 50 cents or 3 plays for $1.00. For the most part, we try charge whatever the original price was when the game was originally manufactured.

    So how much will my child spend per hour in Arcadia?
    Varies. This is a very difficult question to answer. There are many factors. How old your child is, what types of games he/she likes, how good he/she is at games, etc. Older patrons who are good at games can last 10 minutes or more on a single play, meaning about a dollar or two an hour will be spent. Young children who like to run from game to game, not even finishing the first before moving on may spend $10 per hour or more. But both will have a great time and hope to return!

    Pinball machines also reward players with free games. So good pinball players have been known to play for hours on a dollar investment!

    Can you ship using Forward Air?
    NO. We do not use forward air. For one thing, their nearest terminal is 100 miles from us. Also, they don't provide insurance like all of our other shippers. All of our shippers provide excellent service at a very reasonable price.
