|2003-12-14||Mike T||sorry guys they shut down the arcade here this summer (2003) : it sucks. air hockey was only 25 cents a game!! it was really the only thing decent to do here in norwalk and they replaced it with a friggin boat shop... ARGHGH!|
|2002-09-22||ERIC||I am writing this to help those who had Questions
about SHORESIDE...I was the Tech for this establishment (I moved further from the place so it made it harder for me to help them out)..They call me once in a while..to do repairs..Just cannot get down their as often as I used too. There are other reasons as well...(I don't need to mention them).
The arcade belongs to the owners of the marina..
The marina is called NORWALK COVE MARINA
Shoreside is open LATE MAY-EARLY SEPT.. When Schools are out for summer it is open Everyday 10a.m.-10p.m. Shoreside F.P. is on Calf Pasture
Beach Road..Take right as soon as you approach the entrance to Calf Pasture beach itself....
The reason you find boats in front of it is because the marina uses the parking lot for winter boat storage..And the arcade is closed when they do this...It is like a arcade frozen in time..It has been there for 40 yrs.I may suggest you call them (203)853-8282 to find out operating hours..Around the time frame listed above..they
have a answering machine with op times on it that is in use just before beginning and throughout the season..Otherwise, it will just ring...Hope this helps curiosity seekers..ERIC (PIN97EJB@aol.com)|

|2002-07-22||austin s||if yoour looking for some real fun in conn. check out the nade world in new haven it is across the street from the crane rental place and it is not listed on this web site so if your looking for some old school super pac man slow version check out this place|
|2002-07-09||Richard M.||Shore Side would be easy to find if it were on or near a major highway. Basically I just get off at exit 16 off I-95, follow the blue signs directing me to the beaches, and hope that I don't lose the trail. The boat yard doesn't help either - one doesn't expect to see large boats parked at an arcade! Based on these things, I'd say this place is rather hard to find.|
Easy To Find
Located at entrance to beach.
|2002-06-08||Richard M.||Made my annual trip there today. :-) Played Ms. Pac-Man and scored 82K - I'm out of practice in the regular-speed game. Did not see Pac-Man there nor did I see Pole Position, but I did see Centipede and Tournament Arkanoid. After Burner and Tron were turned off; obviously not working. Saw an Off Road game there - not sure if it was Super Off Road, as I'm not really into racing games much.|
|2002-04-21||Richard M.||Yes, will someone move that boatyard? It gets in the way of the arcade! (j/k) Seriously, would someone familiar with the arcade post a reply regarding their times of operation and the times of year the arcade is open? I don't live near Norwalk and really don't want to visit a place that is closed.|
|2002-04-18||Austin Sutcliffe||It is so much fun. It is really there but hard to find because of a boat yard!!! |
|2002-03-03||arcade master||Hey Richard, I followed up on all your comments in all the great places you suggested. Great info, keep it coming!! Did you get to foxwoods yet, I think they have the missing millipede game. word up dude. If I run into you in the cade I'll challenge you to some ms. pac man. Have you seen any super pac man out there, I'm still searching.|
|2002-03-03||Richard M.||arcade master: The only Super Pac-Man I know of is at Funspot in NH - a good 200 mile drive. Thanks for the tip on Foxwoods, I'll take a look; I haven't been there in a while anyway. Next time I'm at Shore Side, I'll play you in Ms. Pac-Man; I've totally forgotten how to play the slow game.|
|2001-05-27||Richard M.||Okay. I believe the place's name is "Shore Side Fun Park", and it is a mini-golf course with an arcade inside. The games correspond pretty well with the dated listing here. I didn't see Mr. Do, but I did see After Burner and The Simpsons. The Ms. Pac-Man is one of the few slow machines in CT. Some of the games were not working.|
|2001-05-20||Tony P||You're exactly right. If someone has the official name of this place, please post it.|
|2001-05-19||Richard M.||I don't need a map. There are other places that keep me amused. But someone familiar with this arcade should check questdex.com (the mapping feature used by this site), locate the arcade using that feature, and post a reply. I suspect that the establishment has a different name than "Calf Pasture Beach."|
|2001-05-18||Big Ron||Pac man rules! I'll take anyone on anyday of the week.|
|2001-05-06||Alan||It was there last summer! (2000)|
|2001-03-08||Richard M.||Could not locate this place using the map feature. Given that it was last sited in 1999, it may no longer exist, or it may have been renamed.|
