Best Of 2015: Affordable Family Fun

Confession: I am a childless adult who loves the Manitou Springs Penny Arcade. What's not to love about this time capsule, really? Many games take pennies, nickels or dimes and feature wooden mechanical figures or hand-painted moving backdrops. Pinball machines from every era stretch out in long rows. Children try out Skee-Ball machines that are older than their parents. There are newer games, too, along with rides for the kiddies, air hockey and even a photo booth. Bonus: Collect enough little red tickets and you can "buy" small toys or candy. Hey, you're never too old for taffy. — J. Adrian Stanley
