Welcome to NickelWorld!

A Family Amusement Center that offers over 100 games for the whole family to play that are either FREE or 1+ nickel per play.

Featuring 20+ Video games and over 60+ Redemption games (games that dispense tickets which can be redeemed for GREAT prizes!)

There is a $2.25 admission fee that is applicable to anyone who walks out on the game room floor. (An area is provided for waiting parents). A discount is given to those in groups of 3 or more at $2.00 each. (savings = .75 cents+)

Many of our FREE PLAY games consist of classic names such as Pacman, Centipede, Donkey Kong, Gyrus, Joust, Moon Patrol, Frogger and Galaga and many more!

Did you know?

Lonnie McDonald is on a quest to rollover every public accessible Joust. We fell into his plans. He arrived at NickelWorld on June 22, 2012 with a padded stool & snacks in hand. After 6 hours of continuous play, he achieved the goal of rolling over our Joust. 9,999,999. Thanks for visiting us Lonnie!

Gregg & Mike are on a quest to build their own Classic Arcade. We hope we inspired them by our Classic Game Wall here at NickelWorld. They used NickelWorld as a backdrop in their video and we were glad to assist them. Most all of our Classic games are the original dedicated machines. They have been in a lot of arcades throughout their lifetime (30+ years). Ours are not in as good of a condition as Gregg & Mike would like BUT they still bring back that nostalgia we (as parents) love! Thanks Gregg & Mike for visiting us!
