Funland Arcade is a location in Beach City Funland that features arcade games, a prize counter, a café, and a grill. It first appeared in the episode "Frybo".

History

"Frybo"

Steven and Peedee go to the arcade after leaving Frybo in charge of enticing people into buying food at Beach Citywalk Fries. They ride the two machines located right outside of the arcade.

"Arcade Mania"

Steven takes the Crystal Gems to the arcade to celebrate their victory. Pearl plays Road Killer but repeatedly loses due to her cautious driving. Amethyst plays Skee Ball and cheats to obtain tickets. Garnet breaks Teens of Rage and Punch Buddy when she misunderstands Steven's gameplay instructions. Steven introduces her to a different game, Meat Beat Mania, which leaves her in a trance. Afterward, Steven is forced to work there to pay for damages.

"So Many Birthdays"

It has a minor appearance when Steven enters to play Whacker Man because Whacker Man Jr. is "childish".

"Lars and the Cool Kids"

The four teens (Lars, Jenny, Buck, and Sour Cream) and Steven drive by the arcade on their way to Dead Man's Mouth.

"Onion Trade"

Steven wastes all his tokens buying G.U.Y.S. from the G.U.Y.S. machine at the arcade and Onion is seen robbing the arcade to win a moped.

"Rose's Room"

All of Beach City, including the arcade, is duplicated in Rose's Room. It lightens up by itself, scaring Steven away.

"Shirt Club"

The arcade's rooftop is the position Buck Dewey and Steven chooses to deliver T-shirts from.

"Greg the Babysitter"

While searching for Sour Cream, Greg gets distracted by a game called "Potato Bros".

"Future Boy Zoltron"

Mr. Smiley places the Zoltron fortune teller booth outside of Funland Arcade.
