If you love pinball and video games, and have any special love for the oldies, then this is the place for you! They have hundreds of old arcade games and pinball machines that would otherwise have been lost to time. If you find some favorites, you could spend hours here easily!

They are a charity organization, and donate all proceeds to the Salvation Army.

Since most of the machines are rebuilt, fixed, and/or old, hardware malfunctioning is not unusual---the people that work there are very helpful and will fix and issues you encounter or get your quarter back, if needed, so don't be afraid to ask! They're also very knowledgeable about the games and know quite a bit that you'd never think people would know about them.

Most of the machines have notes on them as to manufacture date, location, history, and current status of the game. Some are one of only a small number in existence in the world!

Since admission is free, you can go and just enjoy : )

This is basically a warehouse full of pinball machines and old video games but was much more fun than I expected. I can see why people could have negative impressions of the place - the vending machine dispensed me a out-of-date drink and the toilet was pretty basic and it is in the middle of nowhere - however the range of machines they have is quite impressive, from the very old to the very new. Many of the older games can be played with a quarter for a while so it is possible to spend quite a while here if you like pinball/video games.

They don't really make much effort to tell you much about the machines (there is some information but not much) but that is not really the point. Generally worth visiting if you are in the area

We found the Pinball Hall of Fame while looking for something to do off the strip. What a fantastic time! Over 150 different games - and you can play them all! It is not a museum in the traditional sense, but you do get to see and play games from very early to modern! They donate profits to the Salvation army.

Most of the machines take quarters, and there are change machines inside.

We found this place because of the reviews on trip advisor. Very glad we did!! I love pinball to begin with and this place has every machine you could imagine. There are a lot of interesting vintage pieces with the date and origin story written on a card on the machine, as well as a lot of newer machines that are more challenging. There are probably 300-400 machines and you will spend hours if you try to play them all. It was a great way to change up our Vegas activities and get off the strip.

We were also happy to learn that everyone that works there is a volunteer and all of the money you spend goes directly to the Salvation Army. It is a very neat place.

Word to the wise though, plan your trip here round-trip. We took a cab on Friday from our hotel around 1pm. By the time we tried to leave around 4 pm and tried to call a cab company, there was a 45 min to 1 hour wait for a ride home. We definitely did not plan well. We ended up getting a ride from another couple who drove and were leaving at the same time. Thanks to their niceness we were not stuck for hours waiting!
