Took the grandkids here for a Saturday of fun.
lut 2020
The place is a cornucopia of games and eclectic machines from the early 1900's to modern videos. The assortment is quite a collection, and both young and old alike will find much to keep occupied for a few hours. The place seems small until you start looking around and realize they have stuff EVERYWHERE! Most everything takes quarters, and there are ample dollar bill changers on site. Some of the modern games had no instructions and were a bit hard to understand (Japanese style with lots of lights!) But n the whole, the kids had a blast and everybody was nice even when you bumped into them walking by. I would recommend going here on the weekdays, as the weekends are really crowded yet doable.

I have been going here for years. I took my kids when they were small and now my grandkids enjoy vintage game machines. Give it a try. I think you will enjoy this landmark

Don't take your kids here.
sty 2020
If you take your kids here, you'll never get them out again until they run out of quarters. This place is amazing and a little frightening. It's cheap fun and well worth it but bring quarters. There is a refreshment stand inside that sells pizza and plenty of seating for a large group. Like I said, if you take your kids here you'll never get them out.

Marvin skips the CANDY-COATED History and goes for the real stuff
sty 2020
Let me tell you, I have visited Marvin's six times now and I have never sickened of the experience. Each time brings happiness and a great sense of nostalgia. I can't think of many places where you can get such entertainment for FREE.

Okay, if you are unfamiliar with MMMM, let me tell you a secret: Bring your kids and stray them away from the video games, the ticket machines, and the prize counter. That stuff exists in any ol' arcade. The genius of MMMM is the historic stuff that you don't see in any museum, at least not here in the MidWest.

Filled with vintage arcade games from England and around the world, MMMM has games that are merely movement-entertainment - stuff that would have been relished when they were created (anytime from the 1870's - the 1930's) back when kids didn't have television, smartphones, and youtube. Any movement machines were scintillating to watch and operate. Having your child watch this stuff now might seem boring by modern day standards, but explain the history to them! Read the explanations on the museum-like displays. Some of the stuff is downright gruesome, but thrilling nonetheless. Some wooden figure machines replicate dance or jest, but some machines even demonstrate hangings or torture (clearly marked with caution signs)... It's a testament to the history of how blunt people were with their kids when it came to death. Not like today's candy-coated Disney history, Marvin had collected a great selection of amusement from a bygone era.

Peruse the vintage circus posters, take in the massive Cardiff Giant in the back, have your shoulder massaged by an electronic "Vibratory Doctor" and watch your hand sliced off in a visual treat that fools even some older kids!

And if you're cheap like me, you can walk around and see most of this stuff for FREE if you merely wait to witness someone else plop a quarter in the machine. But I brought my 10 and 13 year old here last week, gave them a mere $5 each and we enjoyed ourselves for 1.5 hours, believe it or not.

Top Honors for MMMM.

A Collection Of Vintage Coin Operated Amusement

Actually a working arcade with vintage machines and signage. They have quite a few of the fortune teller machines in different configurations, almost everything was operational. A lot to see in a small area.

Great service

Plenty of staff to assist when we had problems with the machines. Lots of fun playing old arcade games. Available ATM machines to get quarters for the games.

Summer Camp

Awful Customer Service
cze 2019 • Biznesowy
Our summer camp children were recently there and my summer camp counselor and one of my summer campers were assaulted by a special needs teen. Although, I understand that the business does not have control over their customers. After the inncident occured they did not offer to help or apologize. Being a little compassionate to the tramic innodent would have been great. 12 children just witnessed an attack, one child got kicked in the neck and face, and my adult counselor got kicked, hit, hair pulled and head bashed into a machine. Instead, they did nothing. When I called to talk to a manger, I got put on hold and told then told the manager who saw it happen is not here. Still, not an apology. We will not ever be returning!

Creepy, dark and cramped
cze 2019 • Pary
They have an awful amount of stuff, mostly junk, cramped in a small dark space. Everything from early twentieth century amusement park stuff like fortune tellers, scary creatures, etc. to 21st century arcade games like Star Wars. A waste of time unless you are a big time fan of arcade stuff.
