We visited Silverball this weekend, and were really pleased with the experience. They've got pinball machines going back about 60 years, with a good assortment of machines from the 1960s and 1970s. Everything was in tip-top working condition. So very nice to play pinball machines that are as well maintained as these!! One note to would-be visitors: The pay-by-the-hour rate... More

But it's more than a little awesome. Well-curated and maintained collection of old machines in a clean facility. The display cards on top of the machines are particularly nicely done. This is four stars rather than five only because the pass throughs are kind of tight and the room can get very, very noisy. The half day pass is a... More

My family and I were in New Jersey for a few days to visit Six Flags. While searching for other things to do, I came across the Silverball Musuem. We visited on a Monday morning when they opened and had a fantastic time playing on all of the machines! I played the same pinball game that I had played throughout... More

We bought the 6 hours for $15 and had a great time. You can leave and re-enter as much as you want. We left to have lunch - though they do have food available there but we were looking for something more than boardwalk food. Were sure to go back again after lunch. Plenty of games - classic and newer... More

The price of admission is well worth it for the amount of time you get to spend playing in the arcade. The history provided on many of the pinball machines added to the appeal and allows for a greater appreciation of arcade games as a whole.

This place is awesome! We came in on a rainy afternoon and bought a day pass and stayed for over 4 hours! All the great games from the 80's: e.g. Asteroids, Centipede, Missile Command, Pole Position, Donkey Kong plus every pinball machine you can imagine. Once you enter, all the games are free! What a feeling!!!! We didn't order any... More

If you enjoyed pinball in the past this place is blast it is filled with pinball machines from the turn-of-the-century up until the present. You buy a wristband for a certain amount of time (we did an hour) and you can play any of the machines, no coins are necessary. The pinball machines are free play. Each machine as a... More

I was here with my husband and granddaughter & we paid for half a day use. It was well worth the money because each of us chose the games we wanted to play and had lots of fun doing it. Even though there were a lot of people there when we played, there was plenty of room and enough games... More

So many machines to play. Very nostalgic. They do birthday paties there. Kids all enjoyed it. The staff was very friendly. Fun day out.
