Nostalgia is a powerful sentiment, especially for us “old-timers” that remember the glory days of rotary telephones, CRT televisions, floppy disks, and, of course, arcade games. Many old-school products from the mid-to-late 1900s are making a comeback, including vinyl records, Polaroid cameras, and even cassette tapes. Likewise, classic arcade venues are suddenly trending as more and more kids are growing fascinated with these mysterious joystick machines. But our generation never lost interest in these dazzling, six-foot-tall apparatuses. And, luckily for you and your family, North Shore Oceanfront Hotel is home to a bright, newly-remodeled Myrtle Beach arcade: the Family FunZone Arcade.
Top 3 Myrtle Beach Arcade Venues
Researching and locating the best arcade in Myrtle Beach requires quite a bit of energy as there are nearly a dozen venues in the city. This handy list has a little bit of everything: a boardwalk staple, a pinball museum, and an arcade/mini-golf combo just a few steps from a free Myrtle Beach water park. To ensure that your upcoming wintertime escape to South Carolina’s coast is nothing short of flawless, we’ve pieced together this handy Myrtle Beach arcade guide.
North Shore Family FunZone Arcade
North Shore Oceanfront Hotel’s Family FunZone Arcade has a lot going for it: countless state-of-the-art arcade games, a blacklight mini-golf course, and an attached, newly-renovated pool area. Oh, and it’s just steps from Sands Resorts Water Park, which is entirely free to all guests at both North Shore Oceanfront Hotel and Sand Dunes Resort. Besides being free, convenient, and vast, visitors treasure this arcade’s diverse mixture of top-of-the-line video games and old-school arcade-style machines.
Myrtle Beach Pinball Museum
Not only is the Myrtle Beach Pinball Museum one of the area’s most underrated hidden gems, but it’s home to perhaps the best collection pinball machines in the state. Most travelers believe that this timeless escape is just a museum, but visitors can conquer these blasts from the past during business hours for only $12 per hour. Visitors can bounce around from machine to machine to play classics such as Ghostbusters, Munsters, Simpsons, and Indiana Jones.
Fun Plaza is the premier Myrtle Beach Boardwalk arcade. We have a fondness for Fun Plaza’s many classic games, such as skee ball, table hockey, pop-a-shot basketball, and coin-operated “Batter Up” baseball. This facility’s location to the SkyWheel, Atlantic Ocean, eclectic shopping, and highly-praised restaurants instantly makes it a candidate for the “best Myrtle Beach arcade.”
