About
IMPORTANT: Due to the pending redevelopment of our Mill Lane site, Pinball Republic is closed while we pack up and move to our new location (currently under negotiation) - More details will be posted soon. Pinball Republic is a club for pinball players to compete in tournaments or play casually. We are open to the public with an entrance fee of £15 (no time limit) for adults and £5 for accompanied children. We offer monthly membership for £25 by direct debit (More details on the website). There are currently over 50 pinball machines from the last 60 years to play, including most of the latest Stern machines. Please check the website for opening times which vary according to our volunteer host's availability. We hope to see you soon!

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is the number one attraction in London!! F*** Big Ben.

Genuinely the most fun I’ve had in ages. Great people, amazing games, incredible selection of extremely well maintained pinball.

If you’re a pinball enthusiast then this is a must. Get yourself down there asap.

I will definitely be back!!! Best 15 quid you’ll ever spend.

This place is fantastic. Whether you’re a fan of new or old pinball tables, there is something for everyone. You’ll easily spend hours here, well worth the price of admission - and actually pretty easy to find (just keep going down the road the satnav gives you and onto the industrial unit straight ahead!)

I've just had my first visit to Pinball Republic, and it was awesome. An absolutely fantastic selection of machines from all eras, all in excellent condition. They have some older, classic machines, a few of which I'd never seen before, let alone played, and I loved getting to grips which them.
I went on a Thursday evening and the cost is £15 from 6pm until 11pm. However you can become a member which costs £20 per month (if I remember correctly), which is amazing value. Thursday evenings are also league nights, where you can play a selection of machines, record your score, and see how you perform against others. If I lived closer I would do be here every week, as it's great to challenge yourself against others.
As well as the superb selection of pins, you'll also meet lots of really helpful and friendly people. People that are passionate about pinball, and love to see new people enjoying the machines. From what I could gather there were regulars and new people on the night I went and it seemed like everyone had a great time, I know I did.
If you have any interest in pinball at all, make sure that Pinball Republic is on your must visit list, you won't be disappointed.

Located a short walking distance from Waddon rail station or a tram ride from Croydon, Flip Out Pinball Club is a must visit if you like pinball or just want to give it a try.
Loads of tables from all eras of the games evolution to try and all set on free play, just pay flat admission fee and away you go!
Lots of friendly faces here and always someone to offer advice or help with any table faults.
There are vending machines for snacks and soft drinks, but visitors can also bring their own food and drink (alcohol is allowed!) or just get one of the many local takeaways deliver something to keep you going.
It is slightly strangely located towards the end of a road that gets progressively bumpier, but if you think you’ve got lost, you are probably almost there….
Can’t recommend this place highly enough!

This place is a little out the way although we walked roughly 20 mins from Croydon town centre. It’s a little hard to find in the industrial estate although the instructions are good. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. Although the website says Thursday is league night, don’t be put off by that as we were still able to attend as one off visitors. I would happily have stayed all night and definitely would go back if I was visiting the area again.

I went the other day and had a great time! There are plenty of machines to choose from and Metallica is by far my favourite machine there. Attack From Mars was also brilliant for me as I was trying to better my score every time. Really friendly environment so I highly recommend you take a trip there for a fun day out!

Run by pinball enthusiasts - friendly guys, great range of machines, competitions worth entering, will be back. Can seem odd to find -down a light industrial estate - but once you know where it is, you know. There is free parking on the road down into it and entry is fairly priced. Looking forward to getting back there!

Our first visit and boy did we have fun!! Super friendly and helpful people. All machines clearly the pride & joy of their owners. So many choices and ones we remembered from back in the day as well as newer ones.
A hidden gem. Excellent value for money. We will definitely be back
