It all starts with just one pinball machine.

The Original Pinballz Arcade in Austin, Texas is the birthplace of Pinballz. Opened back in 2010 after our owner's personal collection started to get waaaaaaay out of hand, the Burnet location has been the hot spot for Austin's love for pinball machines and classic arcades. Over the years, we've helped families celebrate special birthdays, couples meet, and local businesses motivate and come together. It hosts over 100 pinballs and both modern and classic games, which add to the fun! However, Austin's growing interest in arcades wouldn't stop there, so we decided to open a second location.

Pinballz Kingdom: "A Realm of Entertainment." Located just south of Austin in Buda, TX, Pinballz Kingdom offers all the classic retro and modern gaming fun you expect from the Original Pinballz and brings it away from the busy streets of Austin. Closer to families who want to spend time together in a fantasical medieval setting, Kingdom offers a variety of entertainment that everyone will enjoy. Delicious food from Mikki's Tavern, 3 bars (including a traditional German-style biergarten), outdoor laser tag, live music space, and more make it the ultimate family destination. And as they say, everything is always bigger in Texas, and we decided to take that to heart when opening our third location.

Pinballz Lake Creek: Over 100,000 Square Feet of Family Fun. Our newest location, Pinballz Lake Creek boasts the largest variety of games, attractions, party rooms, and event facilities of any Pinballz location (and possibly all of Austin, Texas!). With awesome attractions (including our VR “Virtual Reality” ARENA, 7D Dark Ride Theater, go karts, bumper cars, laser tag, laser maze, and mini-bowling), a complete menu of delicious scratch-made food from Mikki’s Tavern, hundreds of classic pinball, ticket and prize games as well as modern and new video games, a massive 100-foot Tavern bar, and a new 50-foot Whiskey Bar. The list just keeps going, it almost feels too much to be true! 

There's ALWAYS something going on at each location. With such a great mix of games, attractions, events, food and drinks, we welcome everyone to stop on in and join us in the fun!

Come eat, drink, party, and play!

As an ex-Austinite, I can attest to the awesomeness that is Pinballz. Anyone in town for music or the new comedy scene should certainly dedicate some daytime hours to stopping by. They have virtually every pinball machine made from the 80's on. Only two reasons to go back to Texas these days: Whataburger and Pinballz :D
