Long Description:

A sign on the door states:

SPRING LAKE ARCADE
EST. 1931
THE "WORLD'S OLDEST" PENNY ARCADE

This is no ordinary arcade. It is a working museum of vintage arcade games dating back to the 1920's. Best of all they still operate at their original price. Here I found many of my childhood favorites from the 1950's. Most cost only 5 cents to play.

Admission to the arcade was free with admission to the Beach Recreational Facility - Non-resident day pass is $5.00

Price of Admission: 5.00 (listed in local currency)

Weekday Hours: From: 11:00 AM To: 6:00 PM

Weekend Hours: From: 11:00 AM To: 7:00 PM
