    Like old to times
    This was a fun place to visit. There were always several machines available to play while we were there, including our favorites. While there was no time limit to how long we could play, and we were told we could come back that same day, we limited or time to 90 minutes. The time just flew by. There aren't many times you have an opportunity to play the old pinball games. It was great.

    Fantastic time!
    An awesome time! We arrived on a Friday afternoon about 15 minutes before opening. We were about 40th in line. We spent about 3 1/2 hours playing pinballs and arcade games. So great that you can play up to 4 players on the pinballs. Just a fun way to spend an afternoon. I would recommend arriving early. The wait time at 3pm was like 1 1/2. We definitely got our money worth!

    A must-see stop if in Asheville.
    A must-see stop if in Asheville. There were plenty of pinball machines and they limit the amount of people in at one time. There are also some classic video games as well. All you can play for one price. Most of the machines were working.

    Excellent
    GREAT! $15 enter and leave when you please. You can even come back later in the day if you keep your wristband on. All games are free except a few. If you enjoy pinball, $15 for unlimited plays is worth it.

    So much fun.
    My wife and I are in our 50s. This was a step back to our high-school and earlier days. We stopped on a weekday afternoon when school was in session. There was no line and not many people there. I think we played most of the machines available for play. 15$ gets you all the play you want except for three machines that require another 50 cents each. There are also some classic arcade games such as Centipede, Donkey Kong, PacMan and Ms. Paxman, Qwerty, Galaxie and others. I found myself smiling the whole time. They also have a ton of memorabilia from that time. Boom boxes, toys, posters. You can also buy softdrinks and beer if you are thirsty. Please, go have some fun.

    A Fun Afternoon
    I can't say pinball is something I've done since I was a kid, so this was so much fun! They have a great selection of games; reasonably priced, since you can play all day; and the museum part is real. It was fun to read the history of the games as we played them. Definitely something I'd do again.

    Good time in a classic arcade
    Love this place. Fun for GenX and the teenager. The video game rooms were a trip down memory lane. Weekday afternoon at the end of leaf season there was no line or wait. $15 all u can play was a good deal for 2-3 hours of fun

    Good memories
    Love this place. We spent 2.5 hours playing pinball. By limiting the number of guests, there is always a game available to move to. Staff is welcoming and a good environment for families. A must do when you come to Asheville

    Don’t miss this!
    SO MUCH FUN!! All ages having a great time. Pay $15 and play as long as you want. Highly recommend to get there 30 mins before they open - a line will form and they let 60 in at a time. Don’t miss it, especially if you grew up playing pinball and arcade games!

    Family Outing or Date Night Go To
    This is one of our favorite places in Asheville. My husband and I go for a date or we take our 9 year old son for afternoon family outings. They have pinball machines, arcade games, and classic games like the original Mario for Nintendo. There are concessions available and you can leave and come back with your wrist band. We recommend this to anyone that comes to town visiting.

I loved this place! Unlimited play for a reasonable price! I looked up other pinball arcades and saw that they still took your coins which is fine, but there is something FUN about playing with no limits. Friendly staff and a fun environment that included many pinballs machines just for display.

Meh. Skip it. Our family of 4 all agreed that it was a bust. Not worth the money or time. We waited an hour to get in and only stayed an hour as we got bored.

Every other pinball machine was “display only” and the good machines we hogged the whole time. Yes it’s a “museum” but… not really. In the back there was some old arcade games as well but pretty boring. Staff seemed to inconvenienced to be there.

We have visited the pinball hall of fame in Vegas and that is 100% better. Wanted it to be good. But fell short.
