Steve Zahler, owner and top-ranked pinball player explains, "We're on a mission to bring back this beloved and historic entertainment art form. For a true comeback, pinball must be accessible to everyone and not just found in places where kids can't go. Here, friends, family and couples enjoy quality time together, teachers bring their students for STEM and Science Field Trips, campers have a blast, and Fun Parties are celebrated." For those who want to dig deeper, the Interactive Pinball Exhibit let's visitors see inside a real pinball machine, and interesting game facts are provided on-screen and on museum placards.


All ages are invited to experience and enjoy the wonderful attractions that have captivated kids and adults for decades. Conveniently located in beautiful Kips Bay Manhattan, this social, safe and family-friendly activity center focuses on good clean fun. In the words of the founders, "We’re so excited to bring our passion for pinball to New York City. It is our mission to bring back pinball in a big way and hope to see it re-emerge throughout the country and beyond. Hope to see you soon!"
