Flip Side Retro arcade

$10 adult/$7 child free play all day. Flip-Side is a family friendly vintage arcade and museum where the bulk of the games are from the 80’s and 90’s, but range in age from 1931 to current models. Most of the games are sought after by collectors and are very rare. The pinball lineup boasts 25+ titles in the pinside all time top 100, providing limitless fun. The classic video game collection includes top earners from the 80's golden age and other unique games from '70-'99. Jackie Rhodes and Jeremy O’Neal met through a common lifetime love of classic arcade games and pinball. After meeting at a church in Bristol to play Bally's “Nip-it” and spending time playing each other’s personal collections in their homes, they decided to open an arcade showcasing their combined collections in Bristol, Tn. Welcome to the "Flip-Side" of life where it's all play and no gray!

Arcade is now beside Bristol Golf and Club Fittings, behind Burger King on Volunteer Parkway. The new address is 1393 Volunteer Parkway, Bristol, TN.

Flip Side offers Pizza by the Slice (Little Caeser's Pepperoni), nachos, potato chips, candy bars and other candy, and soda. Ask for the items at the front counter.

A Steve Ritchie experiment rarely seen operational! It's like firing a machine gun! Lot's of fun for the younger set as you fire pinballs toward letters to spell words while shorting out the attacking lightning bolts! Edit comment

Flip Side now has a multicade pinball machine. This machine has 76 pinball games on one machine. The graphics and effects are awesome. Many games are based on Marvel Comics characters. After you finish a game, you have the option of continuing the game with some bonus features. The games play like real machines. You can even shake the machine. The Ant-Man game has an odd feature: you can have two-ball multiball where one ball is clear and you can see only the outline of the ball. Another game, Captain America Civil War, has a point where the playing field turns red. This machine is yet another reason to visit Flip Side Retro Arcade.

The new location is excellent. It has more space, and the walls are painted with a black light scheme. When the black lights are on, the walls look cool.
