Randomly decided to try this place out yesterday, spent about 2 hours there. must have played every machine, it was a fun way to kill a few hours and not expensive. I will go back, despite being reminded how bad I am at pinball haha

Bought a 2 hour pass here when a couple of friends and I were trying to kill some time before a concert on a hot & humid summer day. We weren't disappointed. Bought 2 hours passes, and they seemed more than sufficient (you pay for...More

Went to Modern Pinball yesterday with 4 teenagers! They had a ball (pun intended)lol! We did 1 hour afraid they would be bored but they weren’t! Probably should have done 2 hours, although I think 3 hours would be too much! Very reasonable price for...More

I played most of the machines - all worked perfectly. They are accommodating to young children - plenty of stools to get them up to playing level. You pay by the hour, so all games are "free". But it's great to hear that pop when...More

We ended up spending 2 hours playing pinball on some old school machines with our 10 year old son and 90 year old grandmother. We just stumbled on the place and had a great time. You can rent the whole place out for a party...

The term "museum" is typically American-style and highly trafficked. It is a small, nice and entertaining Pinball Aracde Center! There is an interesting selection of pinball machines from different eras, including some very modern ones (e. g."The Walking Dead"). For some pinball machines, there is...More

Be careful of what time you go, If its too crowded, you won't get to play much or you choice of machine will be limited.

I took my boys and we paid the hour rate. They have about 25 pinball machines, from some of the earliest ones to current, "think Game of Thrones". They are all in working condition and fun to play. I still not do any better than...More

Great place in NYC to play pinball. Many machines, older EMs and today's current new pins from Jersey Jack and Stern. Pins are well kept, clean and in working order. Place is safe and fun. All pins on free-play, pay by the hour :)

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
