  • We heard about the Pacific Pinball Museum from a friend who lives a few blocks away from it, and decided to make a day trip with our 8-year old grandson. Parking was a little tricky because the parkin...  more »
  • For the price of admission ($10 kids, $20 adults-family package and holidays deals) you can stay all day and enjoy playing on close to 100 pinball machines from every era til the present. Lights flash...  more »
  • What a fun experience! I fully expected a boring museum of machines on display with some boring signage... NOT so! You pay to play any/all of the 90+ classic machines for $10 for an hour or $20 for al...  more »

  • An amazing selection of machines organized by time period! I also can't say enough good things about the man at the front desk. His joy was contagious and made our spontaneous date night better than we could have imagined.
  • Bit pricey, but if you're into pinball, look no further. 90 machines, 5 rooms, oldest in the front room, newer ones in the back. And the ultra modern pay-per Ame are at the door. Nothing like your favorite pinball machine set to free play. Don't be a flipper chimp!
  • There is a top10 list of the greatest ever pinball machines on the YouTube channel watchmojo and this place has at least 7 of these in their inventory. It's is a great place to go to find out about pinballs history and to play some awesome machines from the days of old to more recent ones.
  • Great place to spend some time playing a lot of pinball. No wait to play the older games, which they have a lot of. The newer game room were more crowded and if you want to play the newest games, bring more money, they aren't included in admission.
  • I had a great time here and this is coming from a chick who's only played pinball on good ol' Windows XP. Whether you love pinball machines or have never played before, you'll have fun without having to pay for each play! [+] got a Groupon deal for $7 entry (normally $15) [+] unlimited play on pinball machines from the 1950s to 1990s [+] cool display of antique machines (before the creation of pinball) [+] each room has machines and a jukebox dedicated to each decade -- absolutely LOVE! especially the 80s jukebox, which is free to play too [+] the "fireball" was my fave from the 70s; it had some trippy spinning wheel in the playfield [+] the 80s had some pretty cool machines: "pin-bot", Phantom of the Opera, this one w/ a freaky talking doll head... [+] 90s room felt like memory lane w/ machines themed after Addams Family, Doctor Who, Indiana Jones [+] there are soooo many machines that you don't have to worry about waiting for a machine to free up [+] some rare ones too, like the see-through pinball machine [+] and there's this room w/ some random old arcade games I spent a lotttt more time here than I expected to. Who knew playing pinball for several hours could tire you out so much! Cool hangout spot; good for families, friends, and date nights.
