Most vids were a quarter to play (except some of the drivers, which were $1), and the pins were either 50 cents or $1.
I blew about $10 in total and had a blast - and the food at Pops is really good and cheap too - a big double bacon cheeseburger meal with a ton of fries came to about $8.

Thanks, I'm very humble about being one of da BEST MS.PAC PLAYAS EVAH! :D

Kinda wish we visited the 'Udderlee Kool' ice cream arcade as well, which is 25 min west. Great CGCC ref: http://cgcc.ca/forum/viewtopic.php?t=29566.

Yeah, and I hope to visit that 'Georgian Grill' you mentioned as well, one day: http://georgiangrill.com/

Both are awesome - the Georgian Grill is really cool, and the beach there is awesome (it's just down the road from Wasaga....the largest freshwater sand beach in the world).

I went to the Georgian Grill last weekend with the wife and kids.
My brother has a cottage down the street so he took us on the tour.
Cool little place with grub, ice cream, quite a few pins, the arcades and a bunch of redemption games.
Kids never wanna touch the machines in the basement....but at the Georgian Grill they were all about it.
They have quite a few linked racers also.
All in all cool place.

Visited Georgian Grill today! Very cool!

Got there just after noon, so we all had yummy burgers and fries for lunch and then spent some time on the Balm Beach. Rough couple metres of small stone walking into the water but beauty thereafter. Splashed around with the wife-n-kids and then ran back to GG and played a bunch of the games. Great time.

... and also visited 'Joysticks Arcade' in Wasaga Beach.

Balm Beach and Wasaga in the same day? That would have been an awesome day for sure :D

Yeah, we visited Wasaga basically on the way home. It's certainly more busy but the beach is certainly more smooth on the feet. We sped through the arcade. Didn't hit the mini-golfs, darnit. But we were a bit rushed as we were a bit tired and not wild about staying in hotel/motels. We'll head back there one of these days.

But the GG arcade was great, despite most of the pins needing some work. Good times.

Went to Centennial Mini-Indy last Thursday! Fun!

... despite ending up in 3rd place racing against my kids. :cry:

... but I did kick their butts in the Centennial mini golf. 8-)

And there is an arcade too!
