    Well, they should be able to have souvenirs like T-shirt, hats, stickers, or even keychains. Not just Pressed Pennies from a machine.

    It'll be nice for them to set all machines there to free play at least once in a while, like, per month or every third weekends of the month, 'cause I don't like wasting so many dang quarters on machines. Also they should do costume contests every Halloween. Would that be a good idea?

    But to pay to get in for free play, you pay $15.00 for all day.

    Quoted from jackofdiamonds:

    The place is a really just a big arcade,complete with change machines and crane games and all.If it was called"The Pinball Palace" or something besides "Hall of Fame" I think the reveiws would be more favorable.I too was disappointed because there is nothing HoF about it.Both The Silverball Museum and Pacific Pinball Museum do the Hall of Fame thing way better than the actual PHoF.
    Biggest dissapointment of all:zero merchandise.No shirts or hats or stickers or keychains.....nothing.So if you travel from far away,NYC in my case,you can't bring anything home to commemorate your trip.Does it have about 100 games,hell yeah, and thats enough for most of us,including me to visit when I'm in Vegas.But special trip to see the supposed HoF of pinball....it falls way short of those expectations.Sorry,but thats my honest opinion.
    I posted a similar opinion on RGP(Really Grumpy Pin-people) a while back and absorbed a tremendous beating.Regetfully,Scott

    Well, my question is: When is Pinball Hall Of Fame gonna sell T-Shirts and other merchandise like that? 'Cause I know they should and I looking to get one!

    Does Pinball Hall Of Fame host any upcoming special events (officially hosted by Pinball Hall Of Fame) this November? 'Cause I'm looking forward to visit there again

    Quoted from mystic-:

    I'm looking forward to visiting it in a few weeks. i'll be in Vegas on vacation..

    But when? 'Cause I'll be there in about 2 months.

    Quoted from Captive_Ball:

    None around that time that I have heard....they did have nationals and a few other tourneys in April of this year.

    I'm talking about when is Pinball Hall Of Fame itself gonna have live DJ outside in front of PHoF, costume contests, ('cause I wanna see pinball players in costumes at Pinball Hall of Fame) and even pinball trivia to give out prizes for correct answers.

    #64 3 years ago

    When is Pinball Hall Of Fame itself gonna have live DJ outside at the left side of PHoF, costume contests, ('cause I wanna see pinball players in costumes at Pinball Hall of Fame) and even pinball trivia to give out prizes for correct answers? It should be done yearly.

    I would like to know if Pinball Hall of Fame allows loud music 'cause when I get there next month, I'm gonna be playing loud music while I play pinball.

    Quoted from vid1900:

    Tim does not want to pay $400 a year for an ASCAP license allowing public music.

    Well they should allow that! Without music and senselessness silence, it stinks!

    Quoted from mystic-:

    I'm 95% sure Tim wouldn't allow loud music.

    That would be completely senseless at Pinball Hall of Fame, just hearing some bells, sounds, and music from the machine. My opinion. I rather listen to the music from my ipod or smartphone through my portable speakers, but not though my earbuds.

    #100 3 years ago
    Quoted from MikeTangoIndia:

    Yeah......that aint happening lol. If Tim is there expect to be yelled at and thrown out pretty dang quick lol. Like others have said, this is HIS place, HIS rules. The PHOF is not your traditional museum/hall of fame/business. Heck its not even a business at all. Its Tims personal collection and he lets people come in and play with his toys......IF you follow his rules. So yeah...good luck and please post what happens haha.

    Hmm, I supposed this Is true.

    How come Pinball Hall of Fame is never crowded as it should be? That's my question.

    Quoted from merccat:

    Theres more than enough pin noise for ambience... I personally prefer that over loud music.

    What do you guys prefer? Same old bells, digital noises, & music from pinball machines or music being played through speakers from your ipod or smartphone? I prefer music being played from speakers through my ipod or smartphone.
