“No frills pinball fun!”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

We have been here a couple of times, and it is a great way to waste some time and some quarters. There is no admission fee, but you can easily drop a pretty penny in quarters - the games are not cheap. It is basically a big, sparsely lit warehouse with a TON of pinball machines. Many of the older machines have the history written on them (in pen on an index card), so that is kind of neat. So if you are really into pinball, it is a worthwhile stop. If not, I wouldn't bother. But it is free, so when in doubt - check it out!

“Just like when I was 12”
Reviewed October 1, 2012 via mobile

Donkey kong. Tron. Super Mario. They got them all. Not just pinball games. The only problem once one of them breaks it takes a long tone to be fixed. Please fix the Star Trek game

“Fun couple of hours”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

What a great, inexpensive way to spend some time away from the Strip. No admission fee. You don't have to be a pinball fanatic to enjoy this place. No ripoff tokens or plastic cards to swipe, Only real US quarters accepted.
From vintage pinball machines from way-back-when that only cost $.25 to play to classic video arcade games, this place has it all. Family and friends who went along all enjoyed our time there. Glad we took a side trip here.

“Must go place if you are pinball fan.....”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

If you are a pinball fan and you don't go to the Pinball Hall of Fame, then you are just lying to yourself, you are not a pinball fan. This is a must visit place for anyone who love to play the steel ball!! It is located bit off the strip. You need take a bus or taxi....or if you are lucky enough, drive. From the outside, it look like a giant warehouse built to keep people out but inside, its pinball heaven. Literally speaking it is pinball heaven. Just about every great pinball machines ever built during the past 40 years lies within the four walls.I was overjoyed to find Medieval Madness (my favorite) there and threw in $20 worth of quarters (better then gambling). My other favorite is Elton John's Capt Fantastic and the game just killed me as I was remaking all the rookie mistakes. Sad that your pinball skills have eroded so much. There must be nearly 150 or so games. They are not all pinball games. Some of the old classic video games like Missile Command, Donkey Kong and such are also here. And most are in pretty good working order. I say "most" because the guy who run the place is spending most of his time fixing machines!! They do have a quarter machines and yes you got to pay to play. But there is no entrance fee and prices of the machines are at their original rate for most. Some of the pinball machines date back to the late 1940s and 50s....for the senior citizen group.

So if you loved playing pinballs or some of these old video games of the 1960s, 70s, 80s, and 90s, this place will be like a time machine of memory lanes. Also, if you visit the Riviera Casino, there is a Pinball Hall of Fame Annex there, about 25-30 games.

Reviewed September 24, 2012

If you like pinball at all go see this place. Not fancy! but once you start playing games you will forget the location. Lots of fun.
