  • Great place. All machines are on free play. Pay per hour. Lots of fun for all ages. All pins in good condition. 
  • I take an hour and take a pass that lets you play for that period of time on all machines you like, they have about 20 tables, there are classics like terminator 2 or the locos addams and new tables as transformers and many others. It is a place to remember our childhood in the fichina, the tables are super polished and balls flying at a speed impossible to control. But anyway, it is worth to give a tour of the place.

  • This place is set up as a timed space. You don't use quarters or tokens, just a wristband with an expiration time. There are at least 2 dozen pinball machines from all eras, though sadly not all of them are active at once. I'm not sure if it's a maintenance issue, or a crowding issue, but about 6 or 7 games weren't even turned on. The place is clean and booze-free. A great place for a date or the kids. Not a standard arcade like at Dave and Busters, and there's no ticket machines. You're there because you like to play pinball. I'll definitely be back.
  • It's ok $12 an hour for unlimited play. Can get pricey if you have a lot of kids or you just wanted to play a couple of games. Basically one big room, with a small birthday room in the back. Good but not great.
  • A fantastic idea, a unique venue, and a wonderful place to spend an evening. Reasonably priced too.
  • Definitely worthy stop if you're in the city or if you're a huge pinball fan/wizard. It has a great collection of some of the best pinball machines around however there's not much else to do in this small pinball arcade.
  • My new favorite place to visit while in the city. They have a large selection of new Stern machines and also a collection of Williams, Bally, Gottlieb, and Data East pins. Compared to other places I have played I would rate the upkeep on the machines as excellent. The Fish Tales they had (on 3.23.16) played like brand new and had LEDs throughout for a bright and fast game. They also sell the pins (it seemed that every machine had a price tag on it) which sadly means their current games will constantly be changing because the prices seemed reasonable especially for Manhattan ( The Monster Bash and Theater of Magic seen in some pics were probably sold long ago and were not there). I went for the day pass and it truly is a bargain if you're looking to stay in that area of the island for any amount of time. The staff was extremely friendly and clearly passionate about pinball. There is of course countless places for food and drink nearby. They also have a restroom so playing for hours was no problem, except for the personal problem I have with my pin obsession. Cannot recommend this place enough. Thanks Modern Pinball!
