I've lived in the area for years and didn't even know about this place until a few months ago. You can step back in time and play pinball from the 60s thru today, and vintage arcade games like Asteroids and Donkey Kong. If you even remotely like arcade games this place is incredible

Pinball at it's best and it's open year round. Classic pinball machines restored to their original splendor and working condition. More than 200 games in row after row of vintage and contemporary machines. The place is truly a destination for pinball lovers. One pinball game goes back to 1931, many are from the 50's and 70's era and all can... More

We went in around 11 pm for late night snacks and to play some games. We had a great time on the skeeball, pinball and pac man machines. It's easy to spend an hour or more there! A must see.

If you are a baby boomer who grew up through the mechanical, then electronic, and then early video games.......then this is the place for you. We spent three hours playing every game imaginable and unlike most other pinball arcades you've ever been to.....they all worked! You pay either by the hour or 1/2 day, whichever you choose it is a... More

Where can you find pinball machines of various ages that you pay to play by the hour or day? No need for quarters!! All pinball all the time. It was great.

I spend about four hours here. It was GREAT. Old pinball machines, video games, and other attractions. There has to be something here that you will love. Will spend more time here when I return next year.
