Can something be considered cool when it’s located in a rundown strip mall next to a $2 movie theater? It can if it is the Pinball Hall Of Fame.
The “Hall Of Fame” designation is a bit of a misnomer. There are no plaques here dedicated to history’s greatest pinball players. There are no glass enclosed exhibits showing the various pinball balls used throughout the ages. On Spot Cool Stuff we’ve categorized the Pinball Hall Of Fame post under unusual museums though it isn’t quite that either.
Instead, the Pinball Hall of Fame consists of a narrow room with cheap carpeting and a large portion of the personal pinball machine collection of one Mr. Tim Arnold, a preeminent member of the Las Vegas Pinball Collectors Club. The club has restored all of the Hall Of Fame’s 141 pinball machines to near-mint condition.
And here’s the coolest part: Every single one of these machines are available for visitors to play. There’s no entrance fee and a pinball game here costs the same today as it did originally—25 cents on most older machines and 50 cents on the new ones.
So, if you are a pinball fan visiting Vegas forget using your quarters on the slot machines. At the Pinball Hall of Fame you are certain to feel like a winner.
