Visitor Tips and News About Pinball Hall of Fame
The Pinball Hall of Fame contains 10,000 square feet of restored and operating pinball machines from the 1950s through the 1990s. These machines are meant to be played, and all proceeds go to charity. I even found a couple of machines identical to the one's I skipped school to play in then '60s. Also, I had forgotten about the old plunger ball-rackers, which allowed you to play all 5 balls at the same time.
Whether a pinball aficionado or not, this is absolutely this best way to spend a roll of quarters anywhere in Vegas.[Paul Williams, 12/22/2010]
My wife and I are pinball fiends, so this is one of our favorite stops in Vegas. The Pinball Hall of Fame has a huge collection of pinball tables, ranging from the early days of pinball to current tables that came out this year.
I especially like some of the 1990's classics such as Fun House, Taxi, The Cyclone, Pinbot, The Addams Family and The Twilight Zone. They also have a one-of-a-kind upright table built into an arcade cabinet.
Definitely a better way to spend your quarters in Vegas![Matt Dale, 08/13/2010]
The Pinball Museum has moved to a larger 10,000 sq ft location at 1610 E. Tropicana Las Vegas. It is now opposite the Liberace Museum. You can still play old pinball machines and 80s video games for as low as 25c per play. It is a not-for-profit organization.[Ian Mathias, 11/23/2009]
A non-profit operation with over 120 pinball machines and vintage arcade games, going back as far as 1949. The place has a "rec room" atmosphere but is HUGE (4,500 sq ft)! All the games are playable and fully restored. All quarters, no tokens. Any excess funds from the non-profit operation are donated to the Salvation Army. Includes several rare machines like Impacto (from Spain, only two known to exist), Black Gold (only one known to exist), and Pinball Circus (prototype only).[Steven F. Scharff, 03/05/2007]
Vegas resident Tim Arnold has been collecting vintage pinball machines for years, in hopes of eventually creating a museum. Since 2006, the Pinball Hall of Fame is the first step in creating that museum. Housed in a strip mall off the strip, the Hall of Fame has a small part of Tim's collection available for play at their original prices.[Robert, 02/18/2006]
