We came here with 2 teens and spent about 2 hours playing pinball! We arrived around 1pm and there were around 12-15 people in the museum so it wasn't as noisy. By the time we left, there were about 25-30 people playing and the place was really loud. If you have anyone who is sensitive to a lot of noise,... More

Many of the machines were down, a few had small things wrong. A couple of them were pay for play. The customer service was crap, the guy behind the till was rude. Overall it's worth the visit, but I'd rather go to Shorty's!

Luckily we went with a "Stay + Play" guest pass which gave us 50% admission, so this was well worth the money. The admission price lets you play as long as you like as all the games are on Free Play mode. Many favorites in there like Rolling Stones, Wizard of Oz and others. Great for a rainy day.

A local told i that we should go. $15 dollars entrance gets you access to play more than 40 vintage Pinball machines as much as your heart desires. Great for adults, replaying past memories and children alike.

Perfect way to spend a fun, nostalgic afternoon in Seattle. With dozens of pinball machines (and a few video games) from the 1930's to now, there is always a game available to test your silver ball skills! Owner/operators are super to talk with and very knowledgeable. Snack/beer/soda selection is a nice touch too!

I am terrible at pinball, but that did not stop me from enjoying the heck out of this place. Pay one admission and play your heart out.

What a great, kind of nostalgic place. If you are into pinball machines, this is a definite Must Go. They have all different sorts of machines, they are all fun. The only downside is the price of 15-20 USD, if you just want to have a quick look or game. If you wanna hang out and play longer: go!

For $20, played about 75 old pinball machines. My personal favourite was "buckaroo", very hard to get a free game. Rainy day, great time was had by all !

If you have at least an hour to play and are in the ID be sure to stop here. Lots of fun and an unusual attraction. Eat first as you won't want to leave.

You buy the bracelet and then can play any of the games, stay as long as you like. My 9-year-old grandson and I had a ball. People of all ages were there playing - some obviously serious players and some just there for the heck of it for something different. The machines are in great shape, and of all vintages.... More
