A great reminder of how pinball is great, and a throwback to my teens hanging out at arcades. Several pinball machines in great condition, spanning all eras. Addams Family plays extremely well, as do many other favorites from the time period. Stern tables aren’t my...More

14 yr old girl and 11 year old boy and girl enjoyed an hour of play, it’s noisy and dark but a lot of fun. You pretty much stand the whole time so an hour was plenty. Small and dank bathroom available.

This retro pinball machine arcade is lots of fun. Most of the machines are from the 1980s and 1990s but some date back to the 1970s. For some reason, the older, less complicated ones are the best. Very friendly lady runs the place and personally...More

There was a fixed cost of $12 for two hours, or $20 for all day, including in/out access. Either options are a great deal. It is just pinball --- no other games --- no food, just 20 great working, well-tuned pinball machines... More
