I visited Seattle as part of a trip that included New York, Vancouver and Portland. This was one of the highlights.

$15 to play as much as you want and beer available to buy. Cindy and her husband were very pleasant and passionate about their place. The museum has more machines than you could play on from the 60's up until today and is great whether you're a pinball expert or have never played at all.

This is an essential stop if you're visiting Seattle.

Visiting from Ireland we discovered this place on Atlasobscura. Cindy and her husband were so lovely. We had a couple of craft beers playing the pinball machines but pakman was particularly a favourite spent literally an hour on it! Highly recommend a visit

For $15 you get to play for as long as you want. I could have stayed forever. Lots of variety in the games available. Fun to see the progression of pinball from 1960-today.

I brought my son and a few of his middle-school friends here for his birthday. I had as much fun (if not more!) than they did. For one entrance fee, you get unlimited play on all machines except two (Wizard of Oz and Harry Potter). The vintage games are fun to play, and all are labeled with year of manufacture. And, there's a Ms. PacMan machine upstairs. I can't wait to return with a group of my friends.

We came here with 2 teens and spent about 2 hours playing pinball! We arrived around 1pm and there were around 12-15 people in the museum so it wasn't as noisy. By the time we left, there were about 25-30 people playing and the place was really loud. If you have anyone who is sensitive to a lot of noise, it might not be the place for you.

As for the pinball machines, the kids liked The Hobbit one best. There are a few arcade games upstairs (Galaga, Pac Man were two) and those were very popular with kids. There is also a big and cute golden retriever who is free to roam the museum but very friendly. I am allergic to some dogs and had only a slight reaction to him.
