  • We visited here in August of 2021. If you are over a certain age this is simply an old style arcade circa the 1970s or 80s. Lots of old pinball machines and video games. You can play as long as...  more »
  • If you love old time pinball and have a few hours to play it is fun. I really enjoyed playing one of the video games from the 80's so it was a fun hour. The reason for 3 stars is that I don't know.....  more »
  • This was so much fun! We took our twins who are seven and our son who is nine. You only have to pay for who is playing the games, so my husband and I were able to just supervise which kept the cost...  more »

  • Seriously one of the coolest, most fun places I’ve been to! I’m not a huge arcade guy, but I really loved it here. There were so many different things to do, including pinball machines, arcade games, Nintendo 64’s, you name it. I thought the selection of pinball machines was awesome, and there were even miscellaneous facts about each of the machines so you could understand more about the machine you were playing on. Also, the staff was really friendly and personable which made the experience that much better. I’m really glad I convinced my family to come here, and they all really enjoyed it too! If I’m ever back in the Asheville area (which I hope to be) then I will surely swing by here again!
  • Crazy fun. Pay the $15 admission and play nostalgic games until you drop. This place is a quirky nerd Oasis. So much more than pinball machines. The further I explored the place, the more I wanted to stay forever.
  • I took my son here and we had a blast! He's 18 and had never been to an authentic Arcade before. He loved it! This was the best time I have had in a long time. So nostalgic and enjoyable. FYI it's $15.00 a person but All YOU CAN PLAY. Get there early because there can be up to a 2-3 hour wait, but they will call you when it's your turn.
  • Interesting place to waste an hour or two. If you're into old school arcade games and mostly pinball, you'll probably find yourself coming here a lot. For everyone else, including tourists, you'll probably come here once and and feel satisfied. The people who work there are definitely into the scene and really nice. **Tip: if you get there within an hour of closing, you'll get a discount. We got there at 8p (they closed at 9p) and it was $10 instead of $15.
  • We had SO much fun here! Absolutely recommend to enjoy this experience of playing old school games! We brought our 3 kids with ages 12, 6, and 5. We all had a blast! This would be a fun date idea as well! When we checked in there was an 1.5 hour wait list so we went across the street and enjoyed the "Grove" shopping area while we waited. We ended up being called back to return to the museum much quicker than 1.5 hours. Must visit!
