Family friendly gaming arcade with a wide variety of pinball machines. It was a very popular place on a Thursday afternoon in August. One payment for free play on all pins on that day. Usually $12 a day, but due to some minor construction, it was $8 on the day we went. Most machines were well maintained and all but 3 or 4 (including Comet and Judge Dredd) were working when we were there. Some of the older machines had worn playfields, but the 1978 Joker Poker machine was pristine and played like it was new. One downfall is that the room is so packed that you can barely hear the machine you are playing when it gets busy. Definitely worth a visit if you are in the area.
