So sorry, we had a family emergency and I am out of town. We are a 2 man shop and try hard not to disappoint, but obviously not perfectly. Please come back and play for free next time.

We went during regular business hours. NO ONE was there. We waited 15 minutes and no one showed up. (We went an hour after opening time). I called. No answer, no return call. It's just a room with pinball machines.

Laurie, we are so sorry for your experience and our lack of immediate response. My son was alone manning the shop, since we were out of state and was called away due to an immediate personal need. He should have locked the door with a sign, but thought he did not want to lose any business, since some days there are not too many folks coming. This was NOT a very wise choice, he now understands differently. I hope you were in the area for other purposes, however if you ever thought you would like to return, please let me know so we can make up for lack of judgement. People who are into pinball really seem to appreciate our room of pinball machines, especially since they can have unlimited play for one price. Thank you for any consideration.

What a collection of old to new pinball machines! Play to your hearts content! Along with the action all the bells and whistles will thrill you. It was the most fun on $10 that we’ve had in a long time. The owner, Tim, will give you a great lesson of the history of pinball if you are interested. Go! Be a pinball wizard!

It was a cold rainy day and we weren't sure what to do with our kids. I saw this place on here and decided to visit. We had a hard time finding it because the sign was so small and on the ground (It is in an old mall behind the Krystal restaurant). Our kids has never tried pinball before and they loved it! We spent an hour here and they didn't want to leave. It was fun showing them what I did for fun as a kid before electronics.

My girlfriend and I, having come from hanging out with her family and going to the beach, wanted to find something else to do before we left for home. We took a bit of time to look up things to do in Fernandina. We stumbled upon the words Pinball Museum and we were sold! We drove to the museum and we at first thought, "Sure hope they let us play the machines!" Well, much to our satisfaction, we were able to play these new and old relics of the arcade! We also had the privilege of talking to the owner and found out the back story of this place!

All that to say, the next time we are back in town, we will definitely pay a visit to this place again! It is an awesome little place with unexpected fun for all ages!

There are so many different choices here. The well maintained machines are fun to use and if you bring some friends can provide great competitions. The owners are very nice and helpful.

What to do the day after Christmas?? We decided to check out the Pinball Museum and had a great time! This is a fun spot on Amelia Island that is a bit different from heading out to the beach or the bars! The owner made the visit enjoyable as he shared tips, tricks, and history of the various machines. A nice selection of pinball machines that are in great condition and loads of fun to play. Great spot....check it out!

We are locals with a 9 and 4 year old. This is our second time (came on opening day) and our kids LOVE it. Have been asking weekly to come back since we went. Didn't think my 4 year old would get into pinball but he loves hitting the buttons and seeing the lights.

Would recommend to locals or tourists coming by. They offer all day passes but my kids attention span is usually 1-2 hours for the games at their age.
