Vintage Pinball Arcade in NJ

Went to this place a few days ago for the first time. They've got original machines I remember playing in the sixties, along with seventies and eighties vintage and even a few from as far back as the forties. All mechanical, all original, all working and you can actually play them. I had a great time.

The old EM games are fun, but the fun for me never lasted through years and years of play on one machine. After about six months, it became a great place to build balsa wood models

Give me a Williams Space Shuttle, or any 3 ball multiball machine any day

Cool place. There is another place in Manitou Springs, CO which is one of the longest functioning arcades in the Western US. Lots of vintage EM machines at the base of Pikes Peak.

I recognize this is an ancient thread, so I don't expect active response. We also have a pinball museum in the Seattle area. I haven't been yet (don't cross the bridge to Seattle very often), but I plan to go someday. In the meantime, I bought and restored a pinball machine, which is now housed in my family room.

That museum looks nice-and it has a Mata Hari!

Here in the San Francisco Bay Area, we have a pinball museum with playable games, too:

Excellent Dave!!

I LOVE BASIC TABLES......... I hate these newer ones that have so many electronic things,etc in them.... THEY ARE HORRID!!!!!!!

I like 80s tables and earlier!! (I found a nice Pinball arcade game for MAME from 1984 (PINBO)) -- Pretty good pinball game!
