  • Best pinball museum ever! All the pinball machines were in working order & our teens (boys/girls) had a blast!  more »
  • There are so many games to choose from: early antiques to high tech. No matter what your skill with pinball it's fun because it is one price per visit not per game. If you don't do well on one machine...  more »

  • If you always loved pinball machines from your youth on or you want to show it to your kids - you'll find them here. And most of them playable! There is a discounted family-admission. From pure mechanical devices to the Dracula machine - play them!
  • A fun way to spend a couple of hours! I think the admission fee is a little steep, but it's a nonprofit. Seems like a good place for a birthday party; they have a party room and everything.
  • This place is great. Go early and get a day pass. Play pinball for free all day... Leave and come back. It's great!
  • Amazing selection of pinball machines from old to new. All set on free play so you can keep playing as long as you like. $10 for an hour or $20 all day and you can go in and out. We like to make a day of it and take a break with a cocktail and come back. Love this place!
  • Awesome spot!! Get the Groupon if they're still doing it and get ready for hours of fun pinball playing.
