Whether you call Myrtle Beach, South Carolina home or are simply visiting for a spring or summer vacation, you might be looking for a great place to play some of your favorite arcade games.
As a tourist hotspot, Myrtle Beach is known for having tons of fun and games for people of all ages and interests. Of course, that fact extends to the arcades the freckle the city.
So, without further ado, here are the best arcades in Myrtle Beach to try out for some good old-fashioned fun and games.
Gay Dolphin Arcade
This is one of the more popular arcades in Myrtle Beach thanks to the fact that it’s right on the Myrtle Beach Grand Strand.
This isn’t exactly a classic arcade, however. If you’re looking for classics like Pac-Man, Spy Hunter and Donkey Kong, you’ll probably want to look elsewhere. If, on the other hand, you’re interested in an arcade with some modern flair and a mix up adult games with a gambling-like flair, you’ll certainly enjoy your time at this arcade.
Myrtle Beach Pinball Museum
If you’re looking for a place that will entertain everyone from your youngest child to your oldest grandparent, there’s no doubt that the Myrtle Beach Pinball Museum will satisfy and excite everyone involved.
This is truly one of the most unique Myrtle Beach arcades, complete with an eclectic mix up machines from the 1970s, 80s and 90s. In all, the Myrtle Beach Pinball Museum has over 25 unique playable machines.
Fun Warehouse is more than just an arcade, it offers go carts, laser tag, bounce houses and an arcade to boot.
While there are lots of different activities to enjoy at Fun Warehouse, it is not the ideal location for the arcade purist. Afterall, Fun Warehouse is more of a Jack of all trades rather than a master of the arcade world.
Still, there’s no doubt that it’s a guaranteed fun time if you’re looking to get out of the beach sun for an afternoon and into the Fun Warehouse.
This arcade is a classic beachside arcade with a mixture of older and newer games, as well as games that win you tokens and games that don’t. One thing to keep in mind is that its proximity to the beach and many of the Strand’s many bars and restaurants don’t make for the cleanest environment.
While it is close to some of the busiest parts of Myrtle Beach, the Boardwalk Arcade is quite uncrowded during the afternoon hours. So, if you’re looking to avoid the midday sun and get some good old-fashioned gaming in, heading to the Boardwalk Arcade is a great option to consider.
Finally, the last option to consider is Player’s Choice. Not only is Player’s Choice a fun, albeit somewhat small arcade, it’s also a diverse and dynamic comic book store where you can buy the latest edition of your favorite story or explore a new series to fall in love with.
