Blainbrook Entertainment Center

Large assortment of both old and new pinballs. Audio volumes for the machines varied wildly. South Park and Monopoly were incredibly loud, while Metallica and Monster Bash were very quiet. The newest machines and popular oldies (Monster Bash, Attack from Mars, Adams Family) are set for $1 play but the vast majority are 50 cents; so pretty good value overall. However, no $2 for 3 play deals or anything similar on any machines. Many machines have Ball Save turned off, and VERY sensitive Tilt. The machines are well taken care of with many having new LEDs, etc.

This is pinball Heaven. I go here every month for tournaments. Great selection of machines, and tables do get added from time to time. They serve Surly & have great food, so there's fun for everyone.

Great selection. I did not see Superman, Amazing Spider-Man(They had a newer stern machine), or Close Encounters when I was there though.

Their Fish Tales is by far one of the most beautifully kept pins I have ever played. Everything else that I played besides the newer Sterns were in good to mediocre shape. Was a bit frustrating to find out that I couldn't dead flipper pass on their Funhouse in the middle of a tournament qualifier...

Impressive collection, good condition.

Large collection and decent prices. It's fun, but condition and settings of the machines were inconsistent.

For example, some games had a generous ball save and others had none.

Updated the game list. My buddy and i visited here yesterday while we were in Minneapolis for work. Good location with a lot of pins to play, not museum quality, but everything played pretty good. Revenge from Mars wouldn't turn on, not sure if their timer was broke or what, but everything else played and turned on.

My wife, myself and my two week old baby weathered the blizzard to check out this pinball nirvana today! What a sight to behold! GREAT titles including the new The Beatles! We had a ton of fun, very well kept joint, we can’t wait to go again soon!
