The vintage Skee-Ball games at Marty’s Playland in Ocean City, MD are more than just an arcade attraction; they are time machines—transporting players and onlookers of all ages, to a simpler time—a perfect destination for summer.
Unlike Marty’s vintage machines, most modern Skee-Ball games have 100-point rings that can set off electronic sound effects or flashing lights. Marty’s Skee-Ball machine’s are also unique for their size. Measuring 14-feet in length, they stretch four feet longer than those of most modern day machines, which usually measure 10-feet long.
Other nostalgic attractions fill Marty’s Playland as well. Heading to the back of the arcade, you can try your luck at Marty’s vintage Crane Digger machines from the 1940s.
Marty’s Playland hours fluctuate depending on season, weather, and traffic. In season, the arcade opens at 10 a.m. and generally keeps its games running until midnight or later.
