My wife and I are pinball addicts, so this place was a definite for a day trip from NYC (about two hours on NJ Transit). The machines are almost all 1999 and older and are very well maintained (there were techs on hand to fix...More

Have been here several times taking different people. Everyone loved it. You really do not need to spend more than an hour there. Last time took 2 of our grandkids there ages 5 and 7. They loved every minute of it. So amused that they...More

This place is a must see in Asbury Park! Pay one fee for the amount of time you want to spend in there and all of the games are free!!! Super neat walk down memory lane.

We passed this gem every summer on the boardwalk and never went inside, well this past Sunday we drove from Pennsylvania just to go here and it was awesome! 3 of us paid the 6 hour price and boy did we get our moneys worth!...More

FUN, FUN, FUN but you have to like pinball. There are other games, too, but the majority of the entertainment is the pinball machines that you can play over and over again for the specific time paid. I've gone here a few times and will...More

This has old world pin ball games. It is a lot of fun. You can play from one up to a full day. Great for kids and adults.

Entering this space takes one back to the days of their youth. For $15 dollars, I could play endless games from the 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s & 90s for up to 6 hours. Each pinball machine has the year it was manufactured, the artist who...More

Not a pinball fan but who wouldn't love being able to go from machine to machine and play a few levels? Add Skeeball and Ms Pac-man and it's one of the best stops you can make on the boardwalk!

I have been here a couple of times. You pay for a wristband; half-hour, hour, or all day. If you like pinball and some of the original arcade games; Frogger, Pac Man, etc., it's worth checking out if you're on the boardwalk.

Silverball provides a retro arcade experience for everyone. They have skee ball, air hockey, very old pinball machines, digital pinball with all the extra bells and whistles, and video games of the 80's. The only negative is I never seem to give myself enough time....More

For $3 more than the 1 hour pass you get the 1/2 day pass. 6 hours for $15.00 Depends how long everyone wants to play. You do get a bracelet. If it's a beach day you might be able to come and go.
