Jilly's has been here sine 1976. The arcade is pretty big and features an ice cream stand out front. The arcade is located along the boardwalk, at 12th Street. During the summer, the place is very busy and very loud. In my opinion, Jilly's Arcade is the largest and most notorious arcade on the Ocean City Boardwalk. They have two fortune teller machines, one of those photo booths (B&W, 4 per strip, $3.00), Skee-ball, pinball, pool, air hockey, basketball, the Groove, Percussion Master, Drumscape, Top Skater, Alpine Racer, World Kicks, Pump it Up and a lot more. There are also two coin operated rides in the front.
Jilly's site tells us Jilly's Arcade is the perfect place to check out the latest video and pinball games - including old-school games like Space Invaders and Centipede - while you munch on a big bucket of fries from the French Fry Factory.
And, of course, there's everybody's favorite... one of the boardwalk's most popular games, Dance Dance Revolution, which has received national attention because of its health benefits. Fun AND good for you? Now that's what we're talking about! There is actually a collection of these stores along the Boardwalk. I have been to a Jillian's Arcade, Jillian's Amusement Park (2 of them) and other sites as well.
