Despite an issue with the attendant in the beginning (we were trying to take advantage of the earlier invitation to try the Nickelcade and the attendant demanded a copy of the review for each person in the group), the games once we got in were working for the most part. We decided to take $10 in nickels. My wife took $5 for herself and our one year-old, while the 6 year-old and 9 year-old got the other $5. I took a few nickels from each, about $1 worth.
There were a few games that were busted and not marked, but they were in the minority. In the past, whenever I've gone to a Nickelcade it's been with the expectation that about half the games would be broken, thus increasing the cost of each game. This time around, we all had a blast. The kids and wife got plenty of tickets and had a great time. I was able to enjoy some nostalgic moments with Galaga, Pacman, and some other beloved favorites I haven't seen in ages. Even the one year-old was able to enjoy a horse ride a couple times. Overall, I'd highly recommend eating somewhere else first since the prices are about what you'd expect at a movie theater for movie-type food. There's plenty of places to eat nearby and that way you don't get hungry kids or spend a fortune on food.
