14 yr old girl and 11 year old boy and girl enjoyed an hour of play, it’s noisy and dark but a lot of fun. You pretty much stand the whole time so an hour was plenty. Small and dank bathroom available.

I have been a pinball fan for years so a place like this is a "must-see" for me! It's usually not very crowded and you'll have no trouble playing the machines that you want. There are around 30 machines to pick from, both modern and...More

This retro pinball machine arcade is lots of fun. Most of the machines are from the 1980s and 1990s but some date back to the 1970s. For some reason, the older, less complicated ones are the best. Very friendly lady runs the place and personally...More

I played most of the machines - all worked perfectly. They are accommodating to young children - plenty of stools to get them up to playing level. You pay by the hour, so all games are "free". But it's great to hear that pop when...More

There was a fixed cost of $12 for two hours, or $20 for all day, including in/out access. Either options are a great deal. It is just pinball --- no other games --- no food, just 20 great working, well-tuned pinball machines... More
