This place is amazing. Countless pinball machines from every era, some arcade games, a bunch of skill games (don't know what to call them--think dome hockey and puck bowling). They're all set to free play. All you pay is about 3,000 Forints to get in...More

A fun detour in Budapest. One pinball tragic and a non interested party enjoyed the museum. The machines will take you down memory lane. The only downside is it gets very noisy when crowded. Beware the tiny doorway! Once you pay your entry all the...More

Hi Keevak, There are a few old school arcade games (not video games from memory). They do not serve alcohol and it is not permitted. I enjoy a drink but you will enjoy this place without it. Cheers, Dave

There are so many machines in the museum that I was able to constantly play on one of them. I didn't see any lines.

Walking Budapest (7 Replies)
Hi I wanted to know if this is a easily walkable city? Also how do the public buses work? I am thinking of getting the Budapest Card which give access to buses and many discounts. I am staying near the Pinball museum at a hostel. I usually walk to many places easily 2-5km if flat.

It's definitely a walkable city. The Pest side, where you'll be staying is fairly flat. The Buda side is more hilly. So, I would say don't be afraid to walk to places you want to see, as long as you check the distance, and it's within what you are comfortable walking. Most people don't recommend the Budapest card, but getting a travelcard, which allows use of almost all public transportation, is a good value and eliminates the worries about properly validating individual ride tickets. As...More

Thoughts after a 6 day trip to Budapest (1 Replies)
A few impressions after a very enjoyable six day trip to Budapest with two small children (5 and 7), was our first visit. - the city is beautiful and there is an incredible amount to do. It’s not the easiest city to get around I didn’t think, the language is difficult and there aren’t a huge amount of English signs (or any signs for that matter..). When we were at the chairlift in the Buda Hills we split up to walk/chairlift down - no clear way whatsoever to end up in the same place and we...More

Nice trip report...thank you for sharing. Funny you bring up madrid/milan as a comparison in service attitude. My wife and I just returned from a week in Sicily. We noted how friendly the service was there. It is very much a difference in culture....there is an article on peach vs. coconut cultures. Peach cultures (American, Aussie, Spanish and Italian very much fit in this category) are like this...friendly at first meeting and smiling, but hard to get close too. Hungary, Germany and the...More
