    I will be staying at the Taj Mahal at the end of May in Atlantic City, NJ for a few days, and I am looking for a place to visit / play some pinball. Anyone have any suggestions on where to go that is close by?

    Thanks

    Anyone have any places they like to visit in the area?

    so doing a little searching from work .... it's Friday what can I say ... it seems that the Silverball Museum is in Asbury Park just north of Atlantic City, I will for sure be stopping by on my way home. Has anyone visited there recently and can tell me about the experience?

    Silverball is pretty far from AC, maybe an hour drive, not counting traffic. Whatever the drive is, it's worth it.

    Yes looking at google maps 77 miles north but I agree will be worth the trip ... plus it is the same direction as home .... lol

    Going to use pinball locator app while down there and see what is close by, as it is a anniversary trip for the wife and I, I don't suspect she will want to spend a bunch of time looking for them all over. She does like to play some pinball though and is rather good at it, but she is more attracted to the casinos and slot machines .... hahaha

    If you like cheesesteaks, check out "the White House" in ac. Not sure if it's still there, but worth it if it is. Ac isn't what it was in the 80s.

    Leave AC and go down to Margate. Great bars and restaurants there. One of the better arcades is Jilly's, in Ocean City NJ. I don't know of anything in AC. As far as casino's, we like golden nugget, Borgata and Tropicana. Make sure you check out the trop, it's close to the Taj.

    Thanks for the suggestions guys, will definitely check out all the casinos in the area. We are hoping that AC is still cool but have been reading some poor reviews about aging and rundown places. I'm sure it will not compare to Vegas that we visited on a couple different anniversaries. But we are glad to be able to do this as it is close and we can get family to watch the kids for a few days.

    Silverball Museum is by far one of the best pinball experiences in New Jersey let alone the country in my opinion and many others. You will not believe it when you walk through those doors. They are opening up another location nowadays so hopefully they still have a pretty big inventory (which I believe they do) since I went. Definitely don't miss it. The experience is just amazing.

    It is also beachside.

    If Morristown, NJ is on your way home, check out the "Morristown Game Vault", which my friend owns. Beautiful pinball selection there too and a GIANT arcade, one of the biggest around!
