I brought my nephew to Timeline for his 11th birthday to introduce him the games I played when I was a teenager. The original Star Wars game and Qbert really took me back, and the pinball machines were fantastic. He'd never played before, and immediately loved it. I got to play an old favorite that I'd forgotten about, Whirlwind. After... More

On repeat visits, some of the luster is wearing off at the Timeline Arcade. The hourly price is up to $10, which is less of a great deal, but still equals 20 games played. The biggest issue is the games not working right. A couple pinball tables didn't start due to missing pinballs, and many of the arcade games are... More

Love coming here with my daughter! We play pinball and many of the vintage games together. Just another great addition to the downtown business revival. Love having things to do here again!

I was a bit hesitant to visit but I had a great time. The staff was very helpful and it made for a great stop during our vacation. We also enjoyed the local Brew pubs. tis was only about 25 minutes or so from Gettysburg, Pa. It was nice to get away from the tourist traffic for a day. We... More

I really enjoyed my time here. For $25 you get to play all day and you are able to leave and come back. Not only do they have arcade games, they also have pinball and home video game systems hooked up. I thought it was cool how they had a Atari 2600 hooked up to an old tube tv. Clean... More

Decided to check this place out, I was told they are opening a location in York, Pa. I was blown away they have everything from Mortal Kombat to Pacman. I am so excited for the new location to open.

This place just keeps getting better and better! Have been going to Timeline for several years now with my son. Friendly staff, free parking, and more games including classic arcade, home systems, and many pinballs. Charged by the hour, so you don't have to fiddle with tokens and tickets. Very reasonable prices. They hold special events like the "Arcade Horror... More

This place is just awesome. I am 52 and have a teenage son and this place had something for both of us. I am a fan of the earlier arcade games and pinball machines and he likes the newer stuff. You pay by the hour for each person or you can get an all day pass as well. Just slide... More

It's great, as long as everything you want to play works. It's 9 dollars an hour, which is not bad considering the sheer amount of arcade machines you get to choose from. I have visited on three different occasions, and certain machines have had little problems on each visit. It's hard to complain when there's so much available. It just... More
