    A Highlight of Vegas Trip
    Definitely a highlight of our family trip to Vegas. Just a few minutes walk away from the Las Vegas sign at the top of the strip. Free entry too which is amazing. There’s an insane range of retro and vintage pinball machine games, as well as many others. So great just to go and check them all out, let alone have a play. This is a must visit place for everyone if you’re in Vegas. Thank you to the people that run this place. Definitely would be back here if I visited the city again. Thank you

    Great pinball museum w/video games as well
    I recently visited the Pinball Hall Of Fame in its new-ish location and was very pleasantly surprised. Not only is a world of pinball action and history contained within its walls but many classic video games made the trip to the new digs as well. An unbelievable amount of fun...now ON the strip.

    Hours of fun
    So much fun. Right by the famous Welcome to Las Vegas sign. One of the cheapest way to have hours of fun in Las Vegas and fame friendly. Pinball machines going back to the early days. They even have decent priced souvenirs. A true must go to when in Vegas.

    The Mecca of Pinball
    Having been a pinball fanatic in my youth, I had to go at least once to the Pinball HOF. As I was in las Vegas over the July 4th weekend, what better time? Location is perfect, right on Las Vegas Blvd right across from the iconic tourist trap known as the "Welcome to Las Vegas" sign. The parking lot is relatively small and fairly full when I pulled in, but was able to find a spot without a problem. Although the building looks like a big warehouse, it is airconditioned inside, which is great because it was 116 degrees outside on the day I visited. Inside there are hundreds of pinball machines along with some video games and an air hockey table. Large range of machines from years gone by. While most I don't remember seeing before, there were quite a few that I had played in days gone by. I spent over 90 minutes playing and surprised myself in (GASP!) winning some freebies. Most machines appear to cost 25 cents for a three-ball game, but there were a few that cost 50 cents. One thing that did bother me, which dropped my rating from a 5-star to 4-star, is that many machines were turned off. If I were to hazard a guess, I would say 40% were inoperable, which of course included some I would have loved to play. That being said, while the place was busy, I never had an issue with finding open machines to play on. There are change machines so you do not have to worry about bringing a pocketful of quarters with you. Overall, I enjoyed myself immensely. I don't expect to visit the HOF every time I'm in Las Vegas, but can see me going once a year. If you are a pinball fan or even a wizard, highly recommended stopping by.

    Interesting lots of older machines to play on
    Free entry and lots of pinball machines to choose from. Nice to see lots on display but so many of them didn't work, it felt like they should have been in a separate area so that it was clear which ones were in use. Worth a visit to have a go if you are passing

    The Pinball Museum is worth visiting when In las Vegas, you can walk across to it if from The Mandalay Bay Hotel. You can change your notes into coins and have a couple of hours of fun here. There are some really old machines and newer ones as well.

    Loved it, do not bring small children to this building!
    I love the fact that they keep children under control and remove them if they cannot be respectful of the machines. It is a museum, look with your eyes and do not touch unless you're playing a machine. This is not an arcade, so yelling and screaming is not permitted, as well as running, banging on the machines, and just being disrespectful of the volunteers who are helping to run the Pinball Hall of Fame. Keep your small children home, or have them in a stroller or wagon.

    Spent a few hours in here!
    This was a really fun place to visit while in Las Vegas. We were visiting my brother in law and his wife who live there. Our daughters are older, 10 and 13, so they played for awhile on the machines. I saw reviews that the games were broken or shut off but I think that’s because its a collection to view. The games that were on were fun to play and most were very cheap usually 25 or 50 cents. They are strict with food and drinks near the machines but that’s because they are all mostly made in the 50s and 60s and want to keep them safe. One older pinball machine took our quarters and we told the employee walking around and he immediately gave us a free game and unjammed it. Overall it was a nice reprieve from the strip and heat and something the kids really enjoyed.

    Great for all ages—back for day 2 of more fun
    Not overly crowded and something for everyone. Adults and older kids (10) loved the different pinball machines and classic arcade like Ms PacMan and the younger kids (3 and 8) loved the claw games. To our surprise 2 kids actually won big stuffed animals from the claw game on the second try! $5 will get you tons of game play time! Most old pinball games are 25 cents. Lots are 50, most newer ones are 75 cents. But that price gets you lots of chances. We went for 30 min one day and had to leave for a show. Came back the next day for another 45-60 minutes because we had so much fun!

    Pinball fans and families have a unique, low cost option to explore while in Vegas
    Great nostalgia and array of pinball to play. Overall there’s ample options to select from- arcade games, pinball, hockey, skee ball etc. ample space for people so you’re not on top of one another. As a pinball nerd I was surprised that so many machines were off or had flippers that didn’t work well. It makes sense since the Pinball Hall of Fame is a 501c3 (a non profit). It cost money to hire people to fix the machines. Not to mention not many workers have that skill set, in addition to a limited supply of parts Overall good time. For any pinball aficionados, Silver Ball in Asbury Park NJ or Flippers in NC are the places to go But while you’re in Vegas, this is a great fun family option that doesn’t have to cost an obscene amount.

If you like pinball, the diehard enthusiast, or just like classic games this a must stop. I've been visiting for years when vacationing in the LV area. I really liked and preferred when the location was a few miles east on Tropicana.

While the new location had the best of intentions for the business and charity my belief is this relocation was a mistake. 3rd time I've visited the site off of Las Vegas Blvd and it was even more disappointing. Midday on a Thursday the "museum" had many many kids running around and really abusing the machines. I suspect it's a reenactment of the golden age of arcades with parents dropping kids off with a handful of quarters like a Chuck-E-Cheese's while moving on to other adult activities.

I was excited to see a Daytona USA 2 racing game but the way it's treated by kids who can hardly reach the peddles tell me this game won't last to see the end of the month. Nor was it even networked properly to its twin. Another unsupervised child really put some hits & shoves into a Twillight pinball machine and got a light scolding from us. Roughly about 20% of the machines in the facility are turned off "dark" or some sort of issue ranging from broken buttons to eating quarters this isn't exactly a five star setup.

Nice idea, somewhat noble, but I can't imagine the cost in maintenance, operations, and location is going to keep the pinball hall of fame above water unless they jack up prices unrealistically or sell a warehouse full of t-shirts. Ease of location to kill time before a flight may mean I'll be back with $10 but if it survives more than a year or two I'll be shocked.

Don’t waste your time/money here! Search the reviews of this place for the word “rude” and you’ll get the point. As many mention, the elderly man running the place is extremely rude. He talks to customers like they are an inconvenience. He also demands a library-like environment in an arcade?? He should be happy that anyone actually comes to this place as it’s a $20 round trip Uber ride from the Vegas strip.

Hall of Fame? More like the Hall of Broken Games. The place is dark and dirty, but that’s how the old arcades were back in the day so I’m ok with that part. They have a few newer pinball machines in decent condition but many of the games are either in poor playing condition or completely broken machines that are turned off.

Totally not worth the $20 round trip plus the cost of playing the beat down games. I’m sure this place get tourists (it’s Vegas) but I doubt they get a lot of repeat business. I would never return.

My family and I attempted to visit on June 2, 2021. My younger sister and I walked in before the rest of our family, me wearing my mask and her wearing her face shield. Before we could begin looking around at the games, a female employee approached me. This employee pointed at my sister and said that a mask needed to be worn as well because a face shield was not enough protection. She stated I should’ve seen the sign on the door before I walked in; I did not. I began to explain that my sisters both have special needs/disabilities that make them exempt from face mask use but they are able to wear face shields. I was asked to provide proof of this, which was not present because the situation has never came about for it to be needed. As I was explaining this, the rest of my family entered and walked over to me and my sister. This female employee had the nerve to look my sisters up and down and say, “They don’t look like they have disabilities.” I immediately told her that the comment was uncalled for and she had no place to judge that herself. She then tried to apologize by saying it was a “compliment” and her face was “turning red because she was so embarrassed”. No, it is not a “compliment”. This woman was trying to cover-up for her unnecessary and judgmental words. I could not say anything more to her. At that point I turned around and exited the building, the rest of my family following behind me while the employee said, “Well, I guess you’re leaving now.”
What she said and how she handled herself was unprofessional. Disabilities and special needs come in many forms; not all are visible. This comment was incredibly hurtful along with her way of trying to cover it up. My siblings are 8 and 10. They don’t need to see this kind of judgment and to be told that they don’t look like they have special needs.
If that comment had not been made, I believe my siblings would’ve sucked it up for half an hour to wear a mask UNDER their shields. Instead, a family of five walked out and didn’t look back. A family who was excited to play some games and have some fun.

NOTE: I did look at the website before visiting. It does not mention anything about having to wear a mask if a face shield is being worn. The face shield sign AT THE LOCATION was not noticed when walking in because we had already received the face covering warning from the website.
Although that information would be nice online, that’s not the problem. The problem that caused all this was the comment made by the female employee.

This place warms my heart and speaks directly to my inner child. In a city where everything feels outrageously overpriced this hidden gem is a true delight. My husband and I have been traveling to Vegas for years and he enthusiastically proclaims this as “the best place in town”. The warehouse has free parking and no admission fee- all you pay for are the machines. There are games for everyone in the family from any generation including classic pinball (“Creature from the Black Lagoon”, “Terminator”, “Indiana Jones” etc.), Guitar Hero, Dance,Dance Revolution, Ms. PacMan, Donkey Kong, Tron, Joust, Table Hockey and more. My teenage sons, myself and my husband were entertained for hours on just $40. Do NOT miss this amazing place. It is well worth a trip off the now-overly-commercialized and pricey strip.

Alert ******* The Pinball Museum has a new address. They are now, since April 15, 2021, located on Las Vegas Blvd., near the airport. The address is:
4925 Las Vegas Blvd South, Las Vegas NV 89119.

The Pinball Hall of Fame Museum is a great place to get out of the blistering heat of Las Vegas and have a great time. There are rows and rows of vintage and not-so-vintage pinball games to play. Most all were working and we had a wonderful time. I'm 69 and I found many games that I played as a kid. And found some much newer games too. Most are 25 cents with a few requiring more of an investment, but those were mainly games of the last 30 or so years. My brother's grandkids (8-12) had never played pinball before and this place made them stop using their phones. It was clean and very well maintained. There were several volunteers to help you if needed. A great family outing!

It’s an amazing place but I’m giving it two stars because on my second visit, I’d just put a quarter into a pinball machine and was about to start playing when a woman who worked there came up to me, accused me of playing the games for free and said she’d be keeping an eye on me, and then stalked off. I didn’t have the slightest idea what she was talking about and I am definitely not happy about being shouted at by random people out of the blue. Since she didn’t bother to let me say anything, I had to go searching for someone who could explain what the heck was going on.

Turns out people come in and go looking for free credits on the machines, and she assumed I was doing that (even though, as I said, I had just inserted a quarter), which is why I am advising everyone who visits the museum to use one of their plastic tubs, or keep your Ziploc bag of coins on top of the machine.

Honestly, if it’s that much of a problem, the museum needs to do something about it. Put someone on the door and charge five bucks to get in, or hand out wristbands, or insist on a minimum spend. There is no excuse for treating visitors like this.

I was told I didn’t have to leave. Oh, I am so grateful for not being kicked out when I had done nothing wrong.

At least I got a genuine apology and was given my quarter back.

We have a few arcade games at home so when I saw this museum where you could actually play on the games, it was definitely a place to go. They have change machines and you just walk around and find a game you want to play. A few games took our quarters and it was hard to find someone who worked there. The building was new so bathrooms were nice and clean and they had a drink vending machine. Signs on some machines made it helpful for using them. Depending on how much you wanted to spend, you could play all day. Most machines I saw were 50 cents per play. If you played well and got bonuses, you got maybe 3-5 balls per play. There were a few digital arcade driving games too. We really liked it and would go back!

Located on Tropicana near the airport, the Pinball HOF has a large free parking lot and no admission charge. You will only need a quarter or two to play your favorite pins from the 50s, 60s, and a bunch from the 80s. Many of your favorite stand-alone video games are here as well. After a while you will find yourself at the change machine again breaking another $5 bill. The machines are well maintained and after paying for upkeep your quarters go to a children's charity. Play on!

Here you can go back in time to the way life and pinball were when classic 80'style pinball machines were a way of life. I was just a kid when these games were made but what a time it was. Here you can play classics like Black Knight, The Twilight Zone, Funny House, Fish Tales,ArabIan Nights,Attack From Mars and many others from a time long ago but not forgotten as someone who grew up in the 80's. They also have a wonderful collection of newer Stern pinballs as well. I only spent 25 dollars and played for nearly 4 hours. Not a bad way to enjoy yourself while in Las Vegas. I used the Deuce bus service to get there as well. Have fun and relive some fond childhood memories.

The Pinball Hall of Fame has moved to the Las Vegas Strip! It reopened in a larger building near the “Welcome to Las Vegas” sign and next to the Harley Davidson Store in July 2021. A new two sided neon sign was being installed during the day of our visit so it will be easier to find. It has a decent size parking lot and you will find plenty of pinball games to play that are from various decades, play Guitar Hero, have a Dance Off, take photos in a photo booth, and lots of other options. They have new bathrooms,candy machines and a ceiling fan that keeps things cool. We miss the popcorn machine but we hope they will bring it back! Different machines require different amounts of quarters and you can get change there. I enjoy playing the older games because I am bad at pinball and I get 5 balls while in newer games you pay more and only get 3. My sisters are the high scorers and they were very competitive that day!
