I was ten, playing pinball at the Casino. For quarters, 5 balls. Got really good at it. Silverball found all my old playthings and put them together- on the Boardwalk! Safe, family friendly, some real vintage pieces. The owner GH does around repairing the parts that fail. Restroom is clean, and a must for the amount of time you'll spend... More

The art on the pinball machines is worth noticing. The information about each machine is very interesting, you can see the evolution of this pop art over decades of time. And best of all you can play all the games.

Your favorite machine will be here! I found mine - played it starting in the 60's at Bertrand's Island, Lake Hopatcong, NJ and every summer following until the park closed.

This was truly a step back in time for me. I grew up with both pinball machines and video games and didn't realize how much I missed them. Planned a stop here just to see this place and ended up here for over four hours! The employees are great, the other customers were polite and well behaved, nothing rowdy. Was... More

We went in at a little after noon and didn't leave until 5, we had so much fun, there are so many machines. I actually played a couple machines that were made the same year I was born. We got to play air hockey, and there were some machines that I hadn't even heard of. I can't wait to go... More

We came to Silverball on a cool, early spring weekday afternoon. Not crowded but there was enough activity to give the place personality. There were about 150 machines (my guess, not a count) ranging from the 1950's to very recent ones. It seemed that most were from the 1990's (plenty of electronics but primarily the old time pinball game feel)... More

what a great place. You must LOVE pinball to enjoy this place. Games from 1900's to present, and also pac-man,tetris,pong, things like that. It is a one of a kind, and kids and I LOVED hanging out and playing all day for one price. Very good pizza also, hot dogs, and Mom said coffee was great. A nice inexpensive way... More

A great stop! Pay for the hour. With pinball machines from the '50s until present, with some old arcade games mixed in, the Silverball Pinball Museum is a great spot for some shade and some old arcade nostalgia. A must-see on the Asbury Park boardwalk..
