Pinballz Kingdom

The world's largest pinball machine has been sold and is no longer at this location.

All that remains to warrant a roadsider stop is its castle facade and a dragon over the entrance.

World's Largest Pinball Game

Off Interstate 35 just south of Austin you will find an arcade that has the world's largest pinball game, which uses a cue ball. You have to stretch your arms across the game to play! And who better to dedicate this monolith to... Hercules!

[Brooke Lancaster, 03/26/2015]

Almost 8 ft. long and over 6 ft. tall, mass-produced and touted as "the largest, most dramatic flipper game ever." Atari may have manufactured several hundred Hercules pinball machines, mostly between 1976 and 1983. This arcade owner has another in an Austin location.
