A bit crowded & stuffy but a fun place to visit if you like pinball. Pay one price & play all day long.

We have been to the pinball museum multiple times with our grandkids. This is a place all ages can enjoy. Vintage machines share space with the newest models plus skeeball and air hockey.

The museum is a fun place for children and adults. It has a very large variety of pinball machines so there is something for everyone. You can pay an entrance fee and walk around and play any machine free.

We went there on Thanksgiving weekend. It was great! You pay a single fee (time limited) to go in and can then play all the machines that you want for free. They have an extensive collection of mostly older machines. We were impressed with how...More

For $3 more than the 1 hour pass you get the 1/2 day pass. 6 hours for $15.00 Depends how long everyone wants to play. You do get a bracelet. If it's a beach day you might be able to come and go.
