ABOUT US

The Hershey family, long-time operators of the Shake Shoppe Arcade and its predecessor, Big Top Arcade, have historically been committed to providing a welcoming family-oriented entertainment spot and great value for their guests.


The Hershey family has been leaders in the community of Seaside Heights for decades, having started with the well-known Hershey Motel on the Boulevard. They created Hershey’s Big Top Arcade in _______ at 1020 Ocean Terrace, towards the northern end of the Boardwalk in Seaside Heights.


At the time Hershey’s Big Top Arcade was created, the Casino Pier/Breakwater Beach property extended across Ocean Terrace, isolating the northern end of the road from the bustling southern end. Eventually Ocean Terrace was cut through and the activity at the northern end of the boardwalk increased significantly.  That activity was increased further by the presence of the MTV summer house in 1998 and 2002.


Superstorm Sandy struck Seaside Heights with a vengeance on October 29, 2012, destroying much of the Seaside Heights Boardwalk and the surrounding town. Big Top Arcade was inundated with water and sand. It was ______ months until re-opened as Hershey’s Shake Shoppe Arcade. In recognition of assistance received from Primetime Amusements, the arcade is identified as Shake Shoppe Arcade by Primetime.


Proprietor Patty Hershey took the challenge of recovery from the storm as an opportunity to transform her business. Part of the reconstruction of the operation included the addition of a Hershey ice cream shop and a burger stand, and Le Petit Garage, a beach boutique operated by Cara Hershey.
