An absolutely rare treat on our travels in the US early last year (pre Covid).
Some amazing machines - took my wife and I back to the good old days when these wonderful machines were relatively common place. We spent a good hour having great fun!!!

Great Rainy Day Activity
Apr. 2021 • Family
My family had lots of plans for our Chattanooga trip, most of them outside. However, it rained all day. So, when we finished our dinner at Sticky Fingers, we noticed the Pinball Arcade across the street. It was so much fun, reminded me of my childhood. The staff was friendly and took necessary Covid Precautions, regularly wiping the games downs and keeping a clean atmosphere. I would definitely return on my next trip.

Great family activity with super friendly staff!
Dec. 2020
My son (born in 2007) is a huge fan of the 80s and retro fun, so this was #1 on his list of things to do when we visited Chattanooga. We actually had to change the dates of our trip once we learned they were going to be closed the week of New Year's, because it was that important to us! The owner, knowing that we were coming from Florida, was nice enough to call earlier in the day, to check what time we would be arriving because due to their reduced capacity, he wanted to be certain our spots were saved. It was really kind of him and we appreciated it.

We had no trouble finding street parking downtown on a Sunday night. We had reserved online weeks before, so when we went in we told the lady at the desk our name and she gave us our bracelets, which allowed us to go in and out for the rest of the evening (we used this to visit the Rocket Fizz candy store a few doors down!) and got to work. They are working hard to keep the arcade clean and sanitized and everyone must wear a mask. The machines are well maintained and look

Unexpected Pinball Wizard
Dec. 2020 • Couples
Not only was this establishment fun and incredibly entertaining, it exceeded the expectations we had before going through the door. We had been excited about experiencing this the moment we heard about it, but we had no way of knowing how magical the atmosphere would be by just word of mouth. The moment we walked in we were greeted warmly by the worker at the front, Walt. He made the place feel familiar despite the fact that we were 330 miles from home. The cost is insanely reasonable for admission and then it’s unlimited play on any machine that is up and running (including a few arcade games like Pac-Man, Street Fighter, and Calaga). The excitement we felt manifested ten-fold the moment we learned that. The magic of the lights on each machine, the sound of laughter, and metal rolling and hitting side panels was enough to make this stop EASILY one of our favorite experiences the entire trip. An easy three hours spent here felt like no time at all. Not only does every machine have history you can see and feel when you play it, but they have cards printed and placed atop them so you can read just how incredible it is that you can to play through the ages of pinball history. As someone who loved playing pinball with her dad for hours on a Saturday afternoon after we took in a movie at the cinema, I will definitely make this stop a MUST for every trip to Chattanooga in the future. I highly recommend this place to anyone with a penchant for reliving the good ol’ days.

Great Place for Arcade Nostalgia
Nov. 2020
This place is great if you are a child of the 80's and the pinnacle of arcade popularity. for $15 you can play all you want on any machine. For a nerd like me, I loved that each pinball machine had an info card on it telling you all about the machine and it's facts and history. All machines are in great shape and run the gambit from 1960s through 2017. The cabinet machines are also a wide variety and and in great shape. I could have played for hours. I highly recommend!
