Come Play Along at the Oceanfront Boardwalk Arcade in Myrtle Beach
The open-air arcade features vintage games that will take you for a spin down Memory Lane. There’s Skee-Ball (with the old wooden balls), air hockey, pinball machines and low-tech video games like Mrs. Pac-Man and Galaga. Make a deal with Deal or No Deal or play a game of baseball. Be a big spender: get $5 in quarters and spend the day playing the games your parents wouldn’t let you play because they said it was a waste of money.
The Fun Plaza has something for everyone! When you combine the newest and most fun games in the arcade business with the oldies but goodies, you can’t go wrong.
You really can’t beat its location either. The Fun Plaza is located on the new boardwalk and on the Boulevard in the heart of downtown Myrtle Beach. Choose to enter from Ocean Boulevard, where all of the lights, souvenir shops and action are, or directly off the new boardwalk overlooking the ocean and attractions of downtown Myrtle Beach. The open-air breeze will keep you cool while the excitement of the game keeps you smiling again and again.
Because few things say “classic Myrtle Beach vacation” like spending a few hours in an arcade, playing some Skee-Ball and redeeming tickets for prizes. Sure, your kids may be spoiled by the constant availability of games, with Wii, Xbox, and Nintendo DS, but this is the ultimate family bonding experience. Nothing beats the smell of salt air mixed with the dings and bells of the arcade. Can’t you just hear it?
The downtown area of Myrtle Beach has so much to offer everyone in the family in addition to Fun Plaza. Restaurants in the area include Peaches Corner, Oceanfront Grille, Duffy’s, Marvin’s and Landshark Bar and Grill. There are also many attractions in this area to keep the family busy all night long, such as Ripley’s Believe It or Not, Ripley’s Movie 5D Theatre, Ripley’s Haunted Adventure, the new Skywheel, The Thrill Rides of the Skyrocket and Slingshot and the Adrenaline Ziplines, the newest attraction in the downtown area.
If you’re looking for the best souvenir, you can check out the largest and oldest gift shop on the East Coast, the Gay Dolphin. There are also many beach stores that have something for everyone. And if you feel like walking the length of the New Myrtle Beach Boardwalk, start near the SkyWheel near 14th Avenue North and walk south toward the 2nd Avenue Pier.
There is something for everyone to do in the downtown area of Myrtle Beach. Come join in the fun during Myrtle Beach’s Hot Summer nights!
