If you have some tech needs that can't be filled by a big store like Best Buy or Circuit City, then this is the place for you. They have the best prices on RAM and Motherboards around. You cant beat their selection either. Top it off, you dont have to worry about it coming from some guy off of eBay because this place is local.
They have week night specials for this place that make it a great value on those nights where you have nothing else to do. Bowling seems old fashioned, but most of the people there are 16-25. They also have beer specials on certain nights, but since they specials keep changing, it would be futile to post them.
I dont care how old you are, there is a good time for everyone. Especially since most games are not over 30 cents. And a few for less, considerably less. The admission is $2, and there are several free play games which you can play once you have paid admission. Located next to Pacific Theaters in Carmel Mountain Ranch. Make a night of it. Watch a movie at Pacific, Go to dinner at CPK, and play some games at Nickel City.
They have a large selection of CD's, however, they tend to be way over priced compared the retail giants (Best Buy, Circuit City, Wal-Mart, etc). Also, for buy backs, they are horrible values. Unless you are horribly strapped for cash, dont go there to pawn your CD's. I'd go to eBay first before I went there.
They have a good selection of games, the only problem is that on busy nights, there are long waits for the lower priced tables, and they also remove some of the lowest priced tables on those nights as well. Top it off; its a far drive for most people in San Diego County. But if you go on a slow night with a group of friends, it can be a fun way to blow a hundred bucks.
The Big Dipper at Belmont Park is certainly not a World Class Roller Coaster, but it is world Famous (it was featured on the intro to MTV's Summer Beach house when they filmed it in the summer of 2000 at Mission Bay). It's a fairly standard wooden coaster that costs about $4 per ride. Located at Belmont Park there is no admission to this park so check out the coaster before you get on.
A collection of very eclectic stores. Most of them are gift shops which carry the usual San Diego gift items (postcards, shot glasses, sunglasses, etc). There are a few exceptions to this rule such as a store called Hot Licks. They carry a huge variety of hot sauces and salsas and other spicy things. There are other exceptions as well such as the Harley Shop, and a year round Christmas Shop.
Its a pretty good place to get your car washed. Plus they are pretty quick and to top it off, not that expensive. They have higher end jobs they can do such as detailing which can go up to $200. But for about $20, you can get a decent wash and not have to break a sweat. I usually wash there, and then wax at home.
