    Dude, video games that you can play for NICKELS? I was in heaven when I found this place! It costs $2.25 to get in but once you are inside, all games take nickles to play.

    There are some old favorites in here like Tron, Pac-Man, Space Invaders, Burger Time, Dig Dug, Donkey Kong, Klax, Tetris, Super Pac-Man Frogger and more old school video games (there are also some new-ish ones like Guitar Hero, Terminator, Wild Taxi and more). I really love the pinball section. Be warned that they have the games set to the hardest settings so you'll be frustrated, especially with the pinball games (you only get 3 balls and the angle of adjustment is SUPER HIGH). But hey, what do you want for 5 cents?

    The games are in decent condition (yes, some are out of order but most work just fine) and there are genres for every taste. There are also lots of ticket games where you can win tickets to redeem for crappy prizes.

    This place gets crowded on the weekends but after 9 pm it's mostly teenagers and adults getting their game on! It's a fun place with a cool atmosphere. There's even a picnic table indoor party area in the back where kids can have birthday parties. Overall, this is a fun, cheap activity for anybody of any age. Note that, as with most business in Utah, it's closed on Sunday.
