SEASIDE HEIGHTS – The reports of Coin Castle’s demise has been greatly exaggerated.

“No, we are not closing. Just two wheel games facing the Boardwalk will be eliminated, it will not affect Coin Castle Arcade, it will remain the same,” Coin Castle responded on its Facebook page to questions about an item appearing on a recent Seaside Heights Planning Board agenda.

The Board will consider the plan at its 6 p.m. meeting Jan. 30. Amusement games on the southeast corner of the property – at Webster Avenue and Ocean Terrace – will be removed and replaced with a full-service restaurant/bar that seats 84 persons.

The Coin Castle sign will be removed. Additional signage for Spicy’s Cantina, a Mexican restaurant, will be added over this area.
