  • While not enormous, the place certainly is a lot of fun. At a flat rate, you get to play games from different eras of pinball, and the machines are maintained quite well. The place is a little hot...  more »
  • Unlimited pinball and other retro games games. So many games to chose from. Good place to spend time if you are pinball wizard.  more »
  • Great place for kids, adults (provided you are into pinball gaming) and pinball aficionados. Pinball is making a big comeback nowadays, after years of certain neglect in favor of first the early primitive arcade video games and then - seemingly in an irrevocable fashion - at-home console or computer games. Now, as it is very often the case with all things good, pinball is becoming a trend, and not even in a nostalgic or retro way. Modern Pinball NYC Arcade features about 30 pinball machines of every persuasion, some of them at least three or four decades old, judging on their names, from Beatlemania to Addams Family, and from Shrek to KISS, among many others. Upon your check-in you are given a yellow bracelet that allows you to leave and come back at your volition, any time until midnight.
  • Really cool place! Great variety of machines and Beth was awesome and answered every single question we had about pinball and even more that we wouldn’t even know to ask. Had a lot of fun here, recommend it
