The Cone

10 pinball machines on location in the Northern Cincinnati area! Soft Serve Ice cream stand shaped like a giant ice cream cone. They have a game room off to the left with a change machine. Always crowded, but usually plenty of parking. Ice Cream is good too.

Pinsider viper001 is the caretaker of these games, you are welcome to send maintenance needs or comments on them to me. Thanks!

I am the caretaker of the pins at The Cone, the business is owned by my Dad and Brother. If you find problems with them we endeavor to fix them as soon as possible, and you can always ask for a refund at the side window if the game messes up. You can also send me a message here when you see something that needs attention. Thanks!

Couldn't wait for you guys to pen this season so I could play your machines again. Thanks for sharing your collection.

This place was awesome. The pins are in great shape. I live in independence ky and won't mind taking the trip in the future. Great times. So glad I finally got to play a CV in person.

We contacted the Cincy Pinball Group and got some help in servicing all the games. They are now in tip-top shape going into the 2015 season. The idea is we will have more pins at a time in the game room, and we now have working games in reserve if something goes down. No more out-of-order signs this season. Thanks for the fantastic support we have received!!

We are starting off the 2015 Season with 9 pins in the game room! Opening Day is March 29th, hope to see you there.

Looking forward to the new games you added this year. May have to come over during lunch tomorrow!

Love the new games! Played a few at lunch today. Thank you so much for providing a place to play!

So we kicked off the 2016 season by upping our game count to 10! I serviced all the games this past weekend and everything was working when I left, in fairness I have already received a report that ST:TNG is down again. It's a shame because we have a really clean example but that title is definitely a challenge to keep running. If it can't be fixed I'll rotate in another title and update this list. We are endeavoring to keep adding newer titles to the rotation and keep the games as clean and working as is possible. In particular I am lobbying to get a Ghostbusters in before the end of the season.

As always send me your comments and repair needs that you notice. Thanks!

Just stopped by at lunch today. I have been really enjoying the new additions. This is a great place to play and very good ice cream. Does anyone know if there are any leagues being played here???

6 years ago

There are no leagues that play at The Cone right now but we are open to the idea. As long as the league season matched up with our operating season which runs April to probably early October. That may be a challenge as I know most of the local leagues that I'm aware of tend to be fall/winter kind of scheduling.

Star Trek:The Next Generation is finally back up! But I had to take Getaway down as I work to resolve a battery holder issue. I also zeroed in on some other issues and I'll be back next week with some more parts, but I played all 9 remaining games and they are all in good playing condition.

6 years ago

Getaway swapped out for Corvette, we are back to 10 working games! And weirdly a lot of car themes in the mix. We are working now on some of the games in storage so we can swap them in as games go down with problems in the game room. Among them I would love to put Twilight Zone up as I think a lot of folks would appreciate that one.

I would definitely like see Twilight zone in there. I am disappointed that Getaway had to leave but I understand it was having some issues. Corvette is a cool game though and I enjoyed it last time I was there.

Ok, I can't take credit for this as it wasn't my handiwork, but thanks to Mark's Pinball service we have all 10 games humming along at this moment! And also, we acquired a POTC and will be moving that down in the near future. I saw the note on the Shrek mini-playfield and I think that problem was resolved but I don't want to clear that comment until I make sure. Thanks again everyone for the continued notes, they are appreciated!

Today is Opening Day at The Cone! Everything in the gameroom has been serviced by Mark over the winter so things should be playing well. POTC didn't make it down as I'm still having fun with that one in my collection so the lineup hasn't changed, but everything is reported working and tuned up. As always let me know if you are there and notice any problems. Thanks to everyone that supports these games by playing them!

Side notes since I can't edit the location... Elvis is in the collection and STTNG is gone. Corvette's engine was still a little goofy on the ball release.

Viper, I saw opening day is coming up soon. Any plans to change up the lineup this year? I'd sure like to play that POTC.
