    Quoted from bha19:

    I wish I would have known this as yesterday I was right there. According to their website it is $40 to play all day Which is steeper then the other places farther away in New Jersey. The only other option is $12 for 1 hour and $3 for each additional 15 minutes. What I like about the Silverball Museum in Asbury Park is $15 for 1/2 day, and they have a boatload of machines. Also the Silverball Museum was just voted the #1 attraction in New Jersey.

    For the next time you're in the area, we are running a special $10 all-day pass. While we may not have the quantity of machines that Silverball has, I like to think our collection is filled with great, playable titles that will keep customers coming back. We also offer a great range of video arcade machines (Ms. Pac-Man, Dig Dug, Galaga, Defender, etc.), table games (billiards and shuffleboard) and are getting more titles every week! Hope to see you soon!

    Quoted from Brett-L:

    This is great! I just typed Atlantic City into the search and found this thread, thanks! I work in Margate all the time and was just wondering if there was anywhere I could go off to play some pinball every once in a while
    How much for a game? Is there a decent place to park that you know of?

    The games are all set to free play and the you pay for the time you spend here. We are currently running a special, $10 all-day pass. Otherwise it is $7 for 30min or $12 for 60min.

    Parking is pretty rough, I think it's $20 for self-parking ($12 if you are a hotel guest) or $25 for valet ($15 if you are a hotel guest). My recommendation is to park in one of the many parking lots (most are around $5) on Pacific Ave and take a stroll on the boardwalk to the Showboat. Hope this helps!

    Quoted from Brett-L:

    I don’t want to talk about the summer being over but what do you think the hours will be after Labor Day? Some days I need time to kill between jobs and I can’t think of a better place to do just that!

    Well, this is definitely not a concrete schedule, but it would probably look something like this:

    weekdays: 12-8 or 10
    weekends: 11-11
    sunday: 12-6
    and probably a day off somewhere during the week

    We'll post our official off-season hours closer to Labor Day (on all social media and our website!)

    And we're always willing to hear input from customers!

    Quoted from Pinballpal:

    When did the showboat re-open. I thought it was closed for good.

    It reopened two years ago as a hotel. As of right now, the casino portion is closed for good, and the space it occupied is now leased out to places like us. A majority of the casino floor is kept open because the Showboat also hosts a variety of events, ranging from MMA fights to the vegan festival happening this weekend! There might even be some pinball tournaments in the future...
