Like most modern arcades, Timeline has all machines set for "Free Play" and you pay for a block of time. My wife and I traveled from Easton and purchased a "Road Trip" pass. This enabled us to play all day in both the York and Hanover locations. York's selection was very good, and so was Hanover's (even better) but I'd... More

Sorry you had issues with some of the games we have 145+ at our Hanover location and service them daily to say that nearly half of them are not working is just not true. Our staff will help with most all game issues. our Ice cold beer and Cabal have been fixed. Taxi didn't have an issue when checked this... More

We plan a road trip every year and we both agreed that this is how we should kick it off. Both of us were teenagers in the 80's and this place caters to it. Lost some pinball games since last visit 2 years ago, but still fun. Wyfe was thrilled she was high score in star trek.....for about an hour.

I had been told about Timeline by quite a few friends and we finally checked it out today. My boyfriend and I are obsessed with vintage gaming and we both felt this place was well worth the price we paid. $10/hour for unlimited gameplay. So many classic cabinet games, pinball machines and even skee ball!!! Plus so much more. A... More

Walking into Timeline is like taking a trip back into the 80's. With a wonderful mix of new and "classic" games, they has an excellent collection...waiting to be played. This place is kid-friendly - this is one of my kids' favorite places for a special time out with dad. It is great fun showing them what video games used to... More

I was pleasantly surprised that on Monday's an ALL day pass was $15 instead of $25. (FYI for people with health issues) It's located on the second floor. There's off street parking but it's tight on the side of the building but there maybe more parking in the rear. The staff was pleasant and roughly 95%+ of the machines are... More

This is an awesome arcade located in Hanover, PA -- Check out their website for details of what arcade games they have in stock and available for play as I'm certain you'll find at least several you'll like. The other nice touch of this place is that they have a few game consoles available on older TVs which give another... More

There are several rooms of pinball machines and electronic games. Full flight of rather wide steep stairs- this place is an old bank and the arcade is on the second floor. Not a lot of seating, they expect you to play games the whole time. It is loud as you may expect. It costs $10 an hour to play but... More

I wasn't expecting alot of old time games but I was shocked at the amount of classics I used to play. Bringing my nieces, daughter, sister, & wife here was amazing. Being able to play games I used to play with my daughter & wife this time put smiles on all our faces. They had Qbert, Spy Hunter, Centipede, Tapper,... More

This place is awesome. Tons and tons of vintage arcade games, gaming systems, pinball, and skeeball. $25 gets you an all-day pass so you can leave to see other sights Hanover has to offer, or enjoy one of the many restaurants in town (some within walking distance), and then come back and play more!! I love what the downtown businesses... More
