We traveled 50 miles in the hope that there’d be a few working pinball machines among the video games. There were more pinball games than we could begin to play in two hours. Two buildings full of arcade games-the bank building was almost all pinball...More

So fun. My fiancé and I stopped in to check out the pin ball machines. Several games from old to recent. 25-50 cents a piece to play. Going to bring teenage daughter back for sure.
