Review of The Fun Dungeon Arcade at Excalibur – Look Inside!

Key Points:

  • Excalibur’s Fun Dungeon is impressive, offering 200+ arcade and carnival-style midway games.
  • In my opinion, this is the second-best arcade in Vegas, slotted just behind The Midway at Circus Circus.

When it comes to kid-friendly things to do in Vegas, few things top the allure of a sprawling arcade.

One of the top options in that category is the Fun Dungeon Arcade at Excalibur, a medieval-themed resort on the south end of the Strip.

As the name would suggest, the Fun Dungeon is located in Excalibur’s lower level underneath the casino floor and is home to over 200 games that include arcade classics, carnival-style midway games, and even pool tables.

I thought it would be fun to stop into the arcade and get a feel for the offering to help you determine if it should find its way into your Las Vegas itinerary.

Of course, I took plenty of pictures to help you gauge the arcade’s worthiness.

My Experience at Excalibur’s Fun Dungeon

I was one of the first people to enter the Fun Dungeon arcade when it opened alongside a few families with kids who were very visibly excited.

The Arcade itself is large, with an Orange Julius & Dairy Queen slinging sweet treats and quick eats in the middle of it all.

Meandering through the arcade games, I was impressed with the selection, and options ranged from modern and flashy, to timeless classics like pop a shot, air hockey, and skee ball.

Here’s a sampling of what you can expect:

Misc. Arcade games in the Fun Dungeon.
A row of skee ball games sit next to a couple of target throwing arcade games.
A 4 person pac man themed air hockey game with various arcade games in the background.
A collection of arcade games along the walls.
4 bowling arcade games.
A collection of arcade games surrounding a pillar in the middle of the arcade.
3 blue air hockey tables sit empty, waiting for players.
"Let it Bounce" arcade game.
A game where players attempt to hit targets with shots fired from a fake weapon.
Arcade game where players are tasked with knocking over clowns by throwing a ball.
Various arcade games lined up against a wall.
Sink it, an arcade game modeled after beer pong.
A "large prize" claw game that awards big colorful balls.
A big prize claw game that awards large stuffed animals.
A row of 4 basketball shooting games.
A pool table stands empty in the middle of Excalibur's arcade.

In addition to traditional arcade games, the Fun Dungeon at Excalibur is home to 15 carnival-style midway games that award prizes and require players to skillfully land a ball on a lilypad, knock over a stack of blocks with a ball, or toss a ring onto a bottle top, among other tasks.

A horse racing game where seated players propel their horse forward by rolling a ball into a number of holes.
A lilypad game where players are awarded prizes for landing a wiffle ball on a colored lilypad.
A carnival game with large stuffed animals hanging above.
Lucky Ducky carnival game where players are tasked with selecting a floating rubber duck and are then awarded a prize based on what is found written on its underside.

One somewhat underwhelming aspect of Excalibur’s arcade was the prize redemption counter, which I consider small by “Vegas arcade standards”, lacking selection.

Granted, most kids only had enough tickets to purchase bracelets and tootsie rolls, but, come on guys, give these kids some high end prizes to strive for!

The Verdict: Is Excalibur’s Fun Dungeon Worth Visiting?

The Fun Dungeon is easily one of the best arcades in Las Vegas, slotted just behind the Arcade & Midway at Circus Circus in my personal unofficial rankings.

The game selection is top notch offering arcade classics like skee ball and air hockey in addition to modern options.

While there aren’t quite as many carnival-style games as there are at Circus Circus’ midway, there’s ample variety to entertain most anyone on their quest to win a stuffed animal.

The fact that there’s an Orange Julius and Dairy Queen in the middle of everything makes lunch or snacktime a breeze.

If you’re on the south end of the Strip and are looking for something to do with the kids, I’d recommend considering the Fun Dungeon at Excalibur – It’s one of the best things to do with kids in Las Vegas.
