Great Afternoon With Friends

For $20, played about 75 old pinball machines. My personal favourite was "buckaroo", very hard to get a free game. Rainy day, great time was had by all !

If you have at least an hour to play and are in the ID be sure to stop here. Lots of fun and an unusual attraction. Eat first as you won't want to leave.

You buy the bracelet and then can play any of the games, stay as long as you like. My 9-year-old grandson and I had a ball. People of all ages were there playing - some obviously serious players and some just there for the heck of it for something different. The machines are in great shape, and of all vintages.... More

If you love pinball that you need to check this place out! We took our kids there and they loved it! It's a little pricey but you pay for a wristband and can play and of there 20+ pinball games. There were a few they you had to pay for because they were new but we didn't bother with those.... More

Great little place for pinball lovers! And just plain good clean fun. Very nice and informative people run it. They have a decent selection of beers. A very good collection of pinball machines. The main floor is in chronological order. I especially liked the one price entrance fee. Let's you try as many as you wish. I also liked the... More

My partner and I spent almost 3 hours here one afternoon and it was just great. I am not so keen on pinball but now I am hooked. The range of machines is vast to say the least. The machines are arranged in chronological order starting from the 1960's. Its really cool to see the progression of the pinball machines... More

Awesome place to kill some time. My girlfriend and I were looking to play some pinball while we were downtown visiting Seattle. This place is perfect. It has plenty of machines for everyone and it's reasonably priced. Had a nice conversation with the owner just before we left, really welcoming. Overall, if you're looking for wholesome entertainment without breaking the... More

It is so much fun place for young/old kids/adults. The attraction is not visible as their signboard does not stand out. It is in Chinatown, so you can go play inside as much as you want, and go out and eat some great food in this area, and then go back again and play more. It is totally worth the... More

I have to say, I cold've spent more time in this place then I care to admit and I have grossly underestimated the pure joy of playing pinball my entire life. This place is ACE! I think it was 20$ entry fee, worth every penny! Go! Have fun! Thank me later!

My son loves this place! Small but packed with pinball machines. There are a couple of arcade machines. You buy a wrist band then it's open play except for 1-2 games. Can get pretty busy.
