I visited Seattle as part of a trip that included New York, Vancouver and Portland. This was one of the highlights. $15 to play as much as you want and beer available to buy. Cindy and her husband were very pleasant and passionate about their place. The museum has more machines than you could play on from the 60's up... More

Visiting from Ireland we discovered this place on Atlasobscura. Cindy and her husband were so lovely. We had a couple of craft beers playing the pinball machines but pakman was particularly a favourite spent literally an hour on it! Highly recommend a visit

For $15 you get to play for as long as you want. I could have stayed forever. Lots of variety in the games available. Fun to see the progression of pinball from 1960-today.

I brought my son and a few of his middle-school friends here for his birthday. I had as much fun (if not more!) than they did. For one entrance fee, you get unlimited play on all machines except two (Wizard of Oz and Harry Potter). The vintage games are fun to play, and all are labeled with year of manufacture.... More

We came here with 2 teens and spent about 2 hours playing pinball! We arrived around 1pm and there were around 12-15 people in the museum so it wasn't as noisy. By the time we left, there were about 25-30 people playing and the place was really loud. If you have anyone who is sensitive to a lot of noise,... More

Many of the machines were down, a few had small things wrong. A couple of them were pay for play. The customer service was crap, the guy behind the till was rude. Overall it's worth the visit, but I'd rather go to Shorty's!

Luckily we went with a "Stay + Play" guest pass which gave us 50% admission, so this was well worth the money. The admission price lets you play as long as you like as all the games are on Free Play mode. Many favorites in there like Rolling Stones, Wizard of Oz and others. Great for a rainy day.

A local told i that we should go. $15 dollars entrance gets you access to play more than 40 vintage Pinball machines as much as your heart desires. Great for adults, replaying past memories and children alike.

Perfect way to spend a fun, nostalgic afternoon in Seattle. With dozens of pinball machines (and a few video games) from the 1930's to now, there is always a game available to test your silver ball skills! Owner/operators are super to talk with and very knowledgeable. Snack/beer/soda selection is a nice touch too!
