This Retro Arcade In Nevada Will Transport You Back In Time
When in Vegas, you can drop all your cash into slot machines. Or you can take a trip back in time at a retro arcade and museum, the Pinball Hall of Fame.
It may not look like much from the outside, but on the inside the Pinball Hall of Fame houses and displays more than 200 games, the world's largest pinball collection.
This retro arcade provides hours of fun at a very low cost.
This 10,000 square-foot facility features pinball, classic arcade games and novelty machines that are fun for the whole family. Cost to play the games ranges from 25 cents to 50 cents per play. You won't mind being parted with your money as the old familiar clings, clangs beeps and flipper sounds transport you back in time.
Games at the Pinball Hall of Fame have all been restored to like-new playing condition.
All the games belong to Las Vegas Pinball Collectors Club member Tim Arnold. A veteran arcade operator, Arnold moved to Las Vegas from Michigan, where he ran Pinball Pete's in Lansing (and later in Ann Arbor). Now he runs the non-profit Pinball Hall of Fame retro arcade.
The games range from 1950s through 1990s pinball machines.
It's wall to wall fun at this retro arcade. There's the games you grew up on as well as games only pinheads have heard of. The place brings a smile to the faces of video game enthusiasts, young and old.

By the way, since the Pinball Hall of Fame is a non-profit, excess revenues go to non-denominational charities.
