Just wanted to give a shout out to the very nice folks at the Chattanooga Pinball Museum!
The wife and I ran down there last weekend for a little R&R and to play some ball. The place and the people were great. They have a wide variety of games (exhibits) from many different time periods most of which are playable. There is a $15 cover charge to get in and the games are all on free play.
I learned that they had an Orbitor 1 on location and I had really been wanting to play one. The little lady and I needed a break from real life, so I contacted the fine folks at the museum to be sure the game was up and running at that time. They were very responsive and helpful, contacting me to let me know up to the last minute that it was available to play.
We arrived Saturday afternoon and checked into the Read Hotel, which was VERY nice and "affordable" relative to the neighboring hotels. Hampton or The Read... No contest. The Read Hotel. I'm sure the Hampton is fine, but the Read is a fine historic (and recently restored) hotel.
We proceeded to the Chattanooga Pinball Museum about 4 blocks away and had a really nice afternoon playing the broad variety of games on the floor. All of the games that were turned on played nicely. After a few hours of play, we ran over for dinner at an unremarkable, but good "Brazilian" all you can eat joint and returned to the museum afterward for some more play time. There's no charge for re-entry.
The Museum serves alcohol but doesn't have a "barcade" vibe at all, and is very family friendly.
In all, I would highly recommend this destination for a weekend getaway if you're at all close.
