I knew my boyfriend would enjoy this place, because he played a lot of these games in his youth, but never expected to enjoy it so much myself (because I never did play games like this, and I am 61 years old!). My only "negative"...More

Hubby and I love this place! They offer a variety of electronic games ranging from some of the early pinball machines right up to Jersey Jack's newest offerings. They have air hockey, arcade games, and so much more! Great way to spend an afternoon.

I did not personally go, but my husband and son spent hours there one afternoon of our visit. Prices were reasonable and my seven year old was entertained for about 3 hours

Today, we went to this museum on the Asbury Park boardwalk not knowing what to expect and, boy, did we have a great time! We are not pinball players, but thought this would be fun and it was. Retro pinball machines, arcade games, skeeball, hockey,...More

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

I love this place! I love the old wooden pinball machines in the back which are a lot harder to play than you would think. I love the Pong game in the TV set in the back as well. That is definitely harder to play...More

Last summer, an unexpected rainy day while on vacation in Asbury Park put a damper on our beach plans. So what to do? A quick perusal of TA reccs led us here. Last minute plans rarely excite, and are usually just ho are ho-hum space-fillers....More

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.

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.
