We headed north of Atlantic City this time, towards Point Pleasant Beach. It is a popular Jersey Shore holiday location... in Summer. But true to our mrbrown Road Trip mantra — "It's the journey, not the destination, dummy." — we set forth with enthusiasm. Only to find a fairly deserted Boardwalk.
We did find a game arcade. We ended up playing a Race Horse betting machine where you put quarters in for credits, and if your horse wins, you get tokens in return, which you use to exchange for tacky prizes. We kept our tokens instead.
Ryan told me in Genting Highlands, they have a bigger machine with more horses, and you bet with 1 ringgit coins and when you win, you get REAL money, not tokens.
We had a blast anyway. Two grown men, in an almost deserted arcade, loudly cheering their plastic horses on.
