I had been told about Timeline by quite a few friends and we finally checked it out today. My boyfriend and I are obsessed with vintage gaming and we both felt this place was well worth the price we paid. $10/hour for unlimited gameplay. So many classic cabinet games, pinball machines and even skee ball!!! Plus so much more. A... More

Walking into Timeline is like taking a trip back into the 80's. With a wonderful mix of new and "classic" games, they has an excellent collection...waiting to be played. This place is kid-friendly - this is one of my kids' favorite places for a special time out with dad. It is great fun showing them what video games used to... More

I was pleasantly surprised that on Monday's an ALL day pass was $15 instead of $25. (FYI for people with health issues) It's located on the second floor. There's off street parking but it's tight on the side of the building but there maybe more parking in the rear. The staff was pleasant and roughly 95%+ of the machines are... More

This is an awesome arcade located in Hanover, PA -- Check out their website for details of what arcade games they have in stock and available for play as I'm certain you'll find at least several you'll like. The other nice touch of this place is that they have a few game consoles available on older TVs which give another... More

There are several rooms of pinball machines and electronic games. Full flight of rather wide steep stairs- this place is an old bank and the arcade is on the second floor. Not a lot of seating, they expect you to play games the whole time. It is loud as you may expect. It costs $10 an hour to play but... More

I wasn't expecting alot of old time games but I was shocked at the amount of classics I used to play. Bringing my nieces, daughter, sister, & wife here was amazing. Being able to play games I used to play with my daughter & wife this time put smiles on all our faces. They had Qbert, Spy Hunter, Centipede, Tapper,... More

This place is awesome. Tons and tons of vintage arcade games, gaming systems, pinball, and skeeball. $25 gets you an all-day pass so you can leave to see other sights Hanover has to offer, or enjoy one of the many restaurants in town (some within walking distance), and then come back and play more!! I love what the downtown businesses... More

I brought my nephew to Timeline for his 11th birthday to introduce him the games I played when I was a teenager. The original Star Wars game and Qbert really took me back, and the pinball machines were fantastic. He'd never played before, and immediately loved it. I got to play an old favorite that I'd forgotten about, Whirlwind. After... More

On repeat visits, some of the luster is wearing off at the Timeline Arcade. The hourly price is up to $10, which is less of a great deal, but still equals 20 games played. The biggest issue is the games not working right. A couple pinball tables didn't start due to missing pinballs, and many of the arcade games are... More
