This arcade looks AWESOME!

I've spent entirely too much time (and money) in this arcade. It's practically a Mecca that beckons any even halfway nerdy friend that hits town.

The only downsides are they're definitely pricey, and a few of the pins feel like they could use some work. However, still being relatively new to habitual pinball, some of that may be my own inexperience. Would love to have other machines to compare perceived quirks to.

It's nice to see Pinball championed again, and Pinballz treats the medium with class and respect.

This is a great place, if you are anywhere near Austin you definitely need to go. Yes, most games are $0.75 (with CV and LOTR being $1 each), but this is a legit business trying to keep pinball arcades alive, and the games are their main revenue source (at least until the liquor license comes through), so I think it is totally reasonable. Almost everything is in great shape and there are games here that you won't be able to play anywhere else (more Sega games than even at PAPA I think) so be sure to visit and bring plenty of cash.

Brilliant palace of shiny blinky pinball awesomeness! Love playing in the leagues when I have time. Been a member from the get-go with this place. Having it close to home is like having a personal collection like no other! Thanks, Pinballz!

Excellent arcade with about 100 pins and BYOB. The average DMD pin price is 75cents/game, with some new Sterns $1, and SS games 50cents. All games ran on tokens, with no card reader nonsense. Prices on their snacks and soft drinks were cheap.

They also have video games and redemption games, but no sign of children or crowds on the four weeknights I was there.

Overall the games were in great condition. I reported one maintenance issue, and I saw it was fixed on my next visit! The prices to buy their pins were high, but I was just there to play.

I work less than a mile from this location and I am often taking my lunch breaks to play pinball here. There are a ton of machines and it's rarely very crowded, especially during the day. The staff are quick to identify and address issues with machines if they can be fixed without a major repair and if a machine is out of order it will likely be fixed on a subsequent visit. There are a good selection of classic and newer machines here and if they don't have something here there's a good chance that they might have it at one of their other two locations (which both have far fewer pins but do operate a bar with an expanded food menu).
