Arcade Games can be SO MUCH fun as a family outing – so we thought we’d round up all the great places to play in the Moncton area in one easy-to-find list.
Prices, times, and such can change quickly, so we’re not going to include all those details. We’re keeping this list of arcade options in the Moncton area pretty generic, but please click through to the links provided to check the source sites for those details. And if you know of a great arcade option we’ve missed, drop a comment below and we’ll add the info. We’re sure there are some hidden gems around!
Hop! Skip! Jump! might not come to mind as an arcade, but they have lots of offer! There’s a laser maze, a climbing wall (okay, maybe not exactly an arcade-type feature, but great for kids looking for a challenge), air hockey, a two-lane mini bowling alley, and two 9D virtual reality capsules!
Just next door, check out the arcade fun at Cineplex Trinity. Test your skill at basketball, skeeball, air hockey, and climb on a motorcycle for some awesome fun.
Bowling alleys are great spots for games, too! Dieppe Bowlarama recently renovated and folks are raving about the arcade section. You can also find some games at Fairlanes in Moncton and at Parklane in Riverview – plus go bowling!
SkyZone has several great games and a virtual reality studio. (Also, did you know they serve wine & beer now? You can’t jump after indulging, but it can be a fun treat for Mom or Dad while the kids are playing!)
Spin-It Records & Video boasts a wide assortment of games, including of course some vintage gems. Be sure to check out the four-player Avengers game!
In the summer, check out the Tek Zone at Magic Mountain. You can access this arcade space without entering the main park, avoiding the entrance fee, or you can buy a bracelet package that includes tokens for play!
Do you spend time in arcades as a kid? Was it a family outing or a ‘no parents welcome’ outing? Fun fact: Pickle Planet Moncton creator Jenna was BANNED from the local arcade at age six by her father. She wandered away from him in the mall to play her favourite game – and didn’t step foot in the arcade again for more than a decade.
