“What Fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

We have been saying that we'll go to this place for a few years. Finally, on an overcast Wed. afternoon, we decided to go. What a blast! Why did we wait so long to go here? They have almost every machine imaginable. My husband was thrilled to play classics like the Kiss and El Dorado machines. I spent a lot of time on The Cyclone, and some awesome Wizard of Oz machine, but I also made the rounds and played a lot of machines. They also have the retro games like Frogger and even Pong. Sure brings back memories...

We spent about 4 hours playing, and took advantage of the $15 all-you-can-play until 5pm. Totally worth it! Next time, we'll do the $10 until 10pm deal. If we decide to retire in Asbury Park, we're totally getting monthly passes.

“More fun than you think”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

If you really want to have some fun give this gem a try. Time flies when you are here. It is a place for most ages (except those probably under 8) ,definitely for those "older" folks as they remember some of the machines.

“Pinball Heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013 via mobile

Grand kids are having a blast. There are more pinball machines here they can play in a week without putting a coin in. One fee for all day. Reasonable 4 sure. We are going to be regulars soon.

“Cool Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

If your into old pinball machines, this is a cool place to go revisit your ill spent childhood. Love the selection of machines and you can bring beer and wine in to the place too! Damn, I wish arcades let us do that when I was a kid!

“The Blast from the Past--get your pinball fix here.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

This is the 2nd time we have come up from Maryland to go to the Silver Ball Musuem. This place is well worth the trip. You can play pinball at your hearts content. My trouble is I get attached to one machine and all of a sudden your time is up. I love reading the history about each machine. This place is a real trip back in time.
