Tucked into the Metropole marketplace is a bowling alley, the best thin pizza in town and a great time for all ages. Affordable menu with delicious salads. I recommend the Chinese chicken salad. On weekends, sushi is offered. Fresh and delicious.

The arcade is a bit on the small side for all the visitors they receive, but overall good entertainment for families with kids. Bowling is $5 per person, per game.

Great place for kids and adults. Awesome games. Has bowling. Just sorry I didn't get the gals name behind the counter, very nice both times I went in. A must do thing while you're on the island.

It's your "typical" arcade with multiple video and arcade games. It's not super big, but gave the kids some time to play around. There is a "bowling" alley inside; only two lanes. It's $5 per game, but it's like a half-sized version of regular bowling...balls...More

Arcades are always fun and most of them have a certain flair. So does this one and it fits perfectly to the flair of the lovely island. Food is ok for what it is, just not enough different Cabinets, almost no classic ones (I think...More

Fun! Hadn't been to an arcade in years! I had a good time for a few dollars! Near to other good places!

The bowling was a fun time, little expensive for one game ($5). But still worth a stop in. The chicken tacos were amazing too, and for only $2 it's worth getting two or three.
