Where are we going today?

Have you ever wondered if there was a place that had the world's largest pinball collection near you? Well, if you're near Las Vegas, you will do! The Pinball Hall of Fame is located near that famous strip, and it's just FILLED with those fun, classic games!

Las Vegas may be known for Elvis, the Rat Pack, and neon lights, but here, it's all about the pinball game.

The games at the Pinball Hall of Fame range from the 1950s, right up to the 1990s, and all of the 10,000 st feet are used up! All of the machines are available to play, and all are restored like they are new, so you can play them until your heart's content.

The Pinball Hall of Fame is a non-profit experience, so the machines aren't open but they aren't a budget breaker, The older ones are set to 25c per play, and the newer models are 50c.

The place itself is run by a man named Tim Arnold, who is a veteran arcade operator, and knows his pinball machines - so if you have any questions about the history of the machines, or want to find your favorite one, they will know what they are talking about!

Parents will love the trip down memory lane with the games they used to play, and kids will love the challenge of these brilliant machines - much more fun than sitting at a computer in the dark!

So next time in Vegas, take a trip to this historic and fun family arcade experience, and be part of history!

    Went there last December and spent 3 hours. Can't wait to go back next month. Be aware it is a long, long walk from the strip. We walked from the Flamingo. Took the bus that goes down Tropicana back. If you love pinball you will have the time of your life here!!!

    If you love Pinball machines, especially the ones from yester-year, do yourself a favor and stop by the Pinball Hall of Fame. I'm glad we stopped by here. Some good (and cheap) fun in Vegas.

    In Vegas, I was able to visit the Pinball Hall Of Fame which is known for being one of the largest pinball arcades in the nation while also being a non profit organization. For example, it is 10,000 square feet of ‘pure pinball’ and displays the world’s largest pinball collection with the money going to charity. While visiting the arcade, I had fun playing many games and noticed that were several machines making me realize this arcade appeared to house the largest pinball collections. I also found that the money I was putting into...Read More

    I went and it was really a disappointment for me.

    The good news is they had almost all my favorites from when I was growing up... the bad news is... none of them worked. Every machine i played had at least one significant flaw, and I don't mean a light didn't work, I mean something that made the game unplayable or significantly less fun.

    A few examples:
    Addams Family: playfield was not level, it was very noticeable that balls always curled to the right. Thing flips area didn't work at all.

    Attack From Mars: Right ramp didn't work, thus making...Read More

    A lot of fun in this great place. Recommended for Pinball lovers. The stuff are very friendly and they are maintaining the machine in very good conditions.

While visiting the arcade, I had fun playing many games and noticed that were several machines making me realize this arcade appeared to house the largest pinball collections. I also found that the money I was putting into the machines was going to a charity causing me to want to keep playing while feeling good that my money was going to a positive cause. The Pinball Hall Of Fame has donated thousands of dollars and Tim Arnold, who runs it states, “We just don’t care that this or that game isn’t making any money.” This shows that once again, this arcade is not worried about making money, but helping people. This also shows that the owner, Tim, must be a kind man because he chose to donate money instead of keeping it for himself. The Pinball Hall Of Fame was a memorable place to visit because I had fun playing games, while knowing my money was going to a charity. Therefore, you should visit this Hall of Fame.

Addams Family: playfield was not level, it was very noticeable that balls always curled to the right. Thing flips area didn't work at all.

Attack From Mars: Right ramp didn't work, thus making it impossible to complete the game

Fish Tales: A ball was missing, only 2 in the machine.

Twilight Zone: This one was going fine... until a piece of metal broke and got my ball perma stuck, they had to turn off the machine.

Star Trek TNG: The guns didn't function

World Cup: So many targets broken it was unplayable

Overall I'm glad I went once but won't go back, it was a nice thing to see so many machines, just a shame they are in such awful condition.
