Pinball PA

Where did all those great Pinball machines go? You know, the ones you remember fondly from your youth?

Each month CarSense highlights some of the best attractions in the region in a feature called "Sunday Drives".

Saturday, February 29

Where did all those great Pinball machines go? You know, the ones you remember fondly from your youth – with the buttons on the side that activated the bumpers and the constant pinging that accompanied your accumulating score? Well, as it turns out, they’re all located in a fairly nondescript mall – the Hopewell Shopping Center — in Aliquippa, PA.

Pinball PA houses one of the largest collections of vintage pinball machines and video games in the country, over 420 of them, all turned to Free Play, so you don’t need quarters to try them out. The place itself won’t win any awards for ambiance, but gamers will be in Heaven; you pay one admission, and you can play as many machines as often as you want. Standard admission gets you two hours, but you can go longer if you’re truly addicted.

While the major attraction is actually playing the games (it’s a big draw for birthday parties, which won’t surprise you), Pinball PA also maintains a museum, so you can spend a few minutes learning the history of gaming when your thumbs get tired.

Pinball is open daily except Monday: 2-10pm on weekdays, 11am-10pm on Saturdays, and 11-6pm on Sundays. Admission for individuals is $19.99 for two hours and $29.99 all day, but the best deal is the family rate — up to four people for just $39.99 for two hours and $49.99 for all day.
