Maintenance is done every Friday. It's been my experience that at least 2-3 tables are out each time I visit. The machines aren't in top condition but they are taken care of.

Date visited: 8/3/18. This was 4th time to Crabtowne in the last couple years, only stopping in when I travel for work in the area. Not much has changed since I found this place and I mean that literally; with the exception of a few pin placements, not much has changed. Crabtowne USA, while not the worst place I have ever played, is well, pretty darn close.
- UP SIDE: Pin selection/variety, especially older machines; a few even for a quarter. That pretty much is it, sad to say.
- DOWN SIDE: Maintenance, lighting, noise.
Likely the most irritating dimension to pinball is lack of maintenance, and Crabtowne has this down in spades. Pins I played here two years ago still have the same lights not working (Playboy, KISS), weak plungers (Pinbot can't even make it up the Vortex ramp), or dead/weak flippers. A few of the modern Sterns ($1/game of course) just didn’t feel right either, mostly due to un-level play fields. Bottom line failure is the games are simply not maintained very well. Whoever is responsible for the work should be replaced immediately, no questions asked. Many play fields are worn and the leveling on nearly every pin I played was outrageously out of balance. I love Eight Ball Deluxe and Playboy, an early Bally SS era games in fact, but both are so poorly maintained that they are nearly impossible to enjoy. I loved finding the EM Night Rider added to this location, but again, it played so poor it took all the fun out of it. The entire place is lit way to bright, and the noise level from the jukebox can be quite irritating, especially on the bank of pins underneath the speakers. I played for at least six hours and stayed till closing on a Friday night. Lots of people so thats a plus, but it’s there’s to make money and nothing more. I feel sorry for the league and weekly tourney’s they have at this location as the quality of these machines would drive me crazy if this was my home location.
