Las Vegas – Talk a stroll along the nostalgia curve. Among our favorite places to visit is the Pinball Hall of Fame, 1610 East Tropicana, a 10,000-square warehouse with rows and rows of playable pinball machines. It’s an amazing hands-on museum and one more reason to visit Trop. Just put your quarters into the machines you want to play.
Hours: Sunday – Thursday, 11am-11pm, Friday-Saturday 11am-12am. Free parking and walk in the door for free. No entrance fee.
The Pinball Hall of Fame is an attempt by the members of the Las Vegas Pinball Collectors Club to house and display the world’s largest pinball collection, open to the public. A not-for-profit corporation was established to further this cause. The games belong to one club member (Tim Arnold), and range from 1950s up to 1990s pinball machines. Since it is a non-profit museum, older games from the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s are the prevalent, as this was the ‘heyday’ of pinball. There are no ‘ticket spitters’ here (aka kiddie casinos or redemption). It’s all pure pinball (and a few arcade novelty games) from the past. And since it’s a non-profit, excess revenues go to non-denominational charities.
