The Best Destination for Camps and Organizations!!

Nickel City is one of the largest family entertainment centers in the North Shore area. For over 10 years, we have been providing entertainment services for families, camp groups, school outings, and various other organizations. Our services include affordable entertainment for children ages 3 and up as well as a vast variety of food services for groups. We serve lunches in our large party room, which seats over 160 children. We currently have more than 100 games that operate only with nickels. That’s right, just nickels! Over 60 of these games are redemption machines, which give out tickets. These tickets can be redeemed at our large prize counter, which has over 250 different prizes for children. In addition, there are Free games in the Free Play Area than can be played for free-no nickels required! Each year, we provide our affordable services to as many as 90 day camps/park districts, and 50 school outings.

Nickel City is the perfect place for children because it provides safe, affordable entertainment for hours at a time. Camp groups and schools do not have to worry about their budget, as we will surely be the best deal compared to any other facility. Rain or shine, Nickel City is the perfect place to have all of your group outings. Our rates vary depending on the size of the group. There is a two dollar admission fee for all children. Staff and chaperons are always free unless playing games. The admission fee for groups over 35 is lowered to one dollar. We discount all food and beverages for each camp. Pizza and beverages are usually the preferred choice for events. Bags of nickels can be given to each child, customized for each group depending on its budget. We also offer the option for groups to bring in their own lunches. There is a small fee for use of the party room if you opt to bring your own food; depending on the size of the group.

Please call or email us for additional information on reduced rates or to reserve your outing.
