This is a really fun museum to walk through and see the evolution of the pinball technology, artwork and designs over the years. Really unique, informative and a nice change of pace. You can play with some of them too!

Fun spot! Did not expect there to be so many games. My family loved the retro games. Had some strolls down memory lane while playing them. Unique and entertaining place!

What a fun experience! I fully expected a boring museum of machines on display with some boring signage... NOT so! You pay to play any/all of the 90+ classic machines for $10 for an hour or $20 for all day unlimited. We had limited time...More

We took our son and daughter-in-law, who live in San Francisco, and their two pre-teen children. Although it is relatively nearby, they had never been before. We arrived a little after noon and ended up staying for over three hours. That day they had 99...More
