If you want to go to a new, fancy place Nickel Mania wouldn't be the right one. The facility is old although professionally designed and clean. If you believe Nickel Mania is a magical casino where you can bet $0.05 and win a big flat screen TV or at least a $1000 don't waste your time going there, your beautiful dream is not going to come true and you will be disappointed. If you are bored at home in the evening or weekend and don't want to spend a fortune, you and your kids may want to try this place out. All the games and prizes are for kids 5 to 12 years old. They don't have a lot of video games, most of the games pay out tickets or prizes (which was perfectly fine with my kids since they play videos at home).
We were not planning to eat there, but the smell from the kitchen was very yummy and we bought a bread sticks for $3.99 The bread sticks were BIG (about size of medium pizza), hot, fresh and delicious!!!
Next time we go there we will try their pizza. Nickel Mania reminded me of something from my childhood, when simple things used to make me happy. This place is a nice, cozy place to go on a cold winter or rainy day.
