Overview

The Original Pinballz Arcade in Austin is the birthplace of Pinballz. Opened in 2010 after the owner's personal collection started to get out of hand, the Burnet location has quenched Austin's thirst for pinball machines and classic arcades. Since then, we've helped families celebrate birthdays, couples meet, and businesses motivate at our exciting facility.

There were some really cool arcades and old Pinball machines. Which were all in great condition. I liked how the kids games were separated from the nostalgic games. If you don't have cash you load a card with your credit card and then use that...More

It's like Dave and Buster meets pinball machines. Some old style video games too. Has bar and restaurant onsite.

One of the criteria for Mid-Life Crisis Road Trip - The Sequel™ was to find a good place to play some classic Pinball (as in, early-90s). We found it at Pinballz. Eventually. Not the best-signposted place, after driving round twice we got here and had...More

Well, this location is kind of cheesy. Make sure you go to the newer one that has laser tag and the 3D ride. My 12 yr. old nephew got bored after about an hour. Although I had fun playing the older pin ball machines. There...More

Hang out and get to know each other, people watch, there's greasy bar food (actually it was pretty good) and its BYOB. You can spend $20-$30 and have a really fun night. Compete or cooperate...share your favorites from childhood and maybe even win your intended...More
