Excellent selection of maybe 70 pinball machines and 30 video games. Half-day or full-day passes. Food service inside for pizza, soft pretzels and other snacks. Good music, ait conditioning, clean bathrooms. In the off-season, there's free parking in the big lot across the street.

Great place to play pinball! We went there specifically to play. They should expand as there aren't many pinball machines around. Everything is digital now and this place was an oasis. If I want to play digital games we have several game systems for the kids at home. There were many machines. All of them had a name and history... More

We had such a great time playing with our 20 year old daughter. Loved the authentic games. I played Millepede for over 30 minutes!

A history of each machine is displayed on top with year built and historical significance. Evel Knievel, Captain Fantastic, Playboy, Charlie's Angels, Ted Nugent and... More

It was supposed to rain, so we decided to take our 19 year-old granddaughter with us to Asbury Park to stay dry and play pinball at the Silverball Pinball Museum. The entrance is right on the boardwalk and we first discovered that the weather prediction was wrong - because the sun was shining and lots of people were sitting under... More

Followed the advise of so many of you & visited. We chose to park in the lot (5.00 for the day) rather than deal with on street parking. We paid 30.00 for 2 2 hour sessions but were told we were good until 5:00, nice bonus. It wasn't too crowded so we were able to go from machine to machine... More

Every time we go to Asbury, this is a must-stop on the boardwalk. For $10, you get an hour of free play on super fun old vintage pinball, skee-ball, air hockey, and arcarde machines. For only a few bucks more, you can play all night (an hour is always enough for me). On my last visit, I learned this place... More

Hey...it's on the boardwalk so the limited menu may be considered a bit high but the very thin (think cracker-like) crust was very good. Some of the most friendly service too!
