The wife and I have talked about opening a small adult oriented pinball arcade in our hometown. I was wondering what everyone thought about the idea. Is it possible to make a profit with say 15 new pinballs and 5 older classics? Keep the machines in tip top shape and have a fun atmosphere around the place. We crunched a few numbers and they don't look very promising but we're not sure we are starting with the correct numbers to begin with. Any of you own or run your own arcades that might be able to share a little of your knowledge with us? Seems it would take a while to get the money back on a single 8000 dollar machine but we could be very wrong. Everything old is new again and it looks like pinball is making a huge comeback. Appreciate your input as this info could be our biggest deciding factor. Thanks again!
