This is a really cool place and offers all sorts of arcade games and pinball machines - it's definitely a blast from the past! Rows and rows of pinball machines, vintage and new, as well as rows and rows of arcade games. One can lose track of time in here! There's also skeeball, and a video game lounge area. There... More

I took my 11yr old and 8yr old there on a Saturday afternoon to introduce them to arcade gaming. They've heard my war stories from my teenage years about my time spent in the arcade and they wanted to experience it for themselves. We prepaid for an hour and it went by in a flash. From Donkey Kong to Punch... More

Lots of classic pinball and video games. Brings back memories of fun and games. Special events like the pacman drop on New Year's Eve are extra special. Great place to party with old friends and to make new ones.

Like most modern arcades, Timeline has all machines set for "Free Play" and you pay for a block of time. My wife and I traveled from Easton and purchased a "Road Trip" pass. This enabled us to play all day in both the York and Hanover locations. York's selection was very good, and so was Hanover's (even better) but I'd... More

Sorry you had issues with some of the games we have 145+ at our Hanover location and service them daily to say that nearly half of them are not working is just not true. Our staff will help with most all game issues. our Ice cold beer and Cabal have been fixed. Taxi didn't have an issue when checked this... More

If you like to play arcade games this place is great! They have every pinball game imaginable and lots of other arcade games as well. They sell an all day wristband which allows you to go in and out and have free play on everything. They also give you a card to swipe on certain games including Skee Ball and... More

We plan a road trip every year and we both agreed that this is how we should kick it off. Both of us were teenagers in the 80's and this place caters to it. Lost some pinball games since last visit 2 years ago, but still fun. Wyfe was thrilled she was high score in star trek.....for about an hour.

I had been told about Timeline by quite a few friends and we finally checked it out today. My boyfriend and I are obsessed with vintage gaming and we both felt this place was well worth the price we paid. $10/hour for unlimited gameplay. So many classic cabinet games, pinball machines and even skee ball!!! Plus so much more. A... More

Walking into Timeline is like taking a trip back into the 80's. With a wonderful mix of new and "classic" games, they has an excellent collection...waiting to be played. This place is kid-friendly - this is one of my kids' favorite places for a special time out with dad. It is great fun showing them what video games used to... More

I was pleasantly surprised that on Monday's an ALL day pass was $15 instead of $25. (FYI for people with health issues) It's located on the second floor. There's off street parking but it's tight on the side of the building but there maybe more parking in the rear. The staff was pleasant and roughly 95%+ of the machines are... More

This is an awesome arcade located in Hanover, PA -- Check out their website for details of what arcade games they have in stock and available for play as I'm certain you'll find at least several you'll like. The other nice touch of this place is that they have a few game consoles available on older TVs which give another... More
