As you approach The Pinball Hall of Fame, just behind The Strip on Tropicana Avenue, the building that houses it doesn’t look like anything special. But once you’re inside, you’re greeted by the lights and sounds of rows and rows of pinball machines. It’s free to enter and only costs a couple of quarters to play the games. As you wander up and down the aisles, the machines range from the early classic models to flashier fun characters. Practice your skills on James Bond, Star Wars, The Avengers, The Addams Family, and more nostalgic-themed machines!
After years of success and popularity, the Pinball Hall of Fame's fate grew uncertain when the pandemic hit. The thriving favorite local hangout had plans to move to an even bigger location right on The Strip across from the “Welcome to Las Vegas” sign, but the government shutdown forced them to close their doors. That plan is still in place and luckily, thanks to donors and GoFundMe, they’ll be able to make the move to Las Vegas Boulevard sometime this Spring. For now, they’re still a non-profit organization that welcomes everyone to come play at their current location on Tropicana. You can show your support and help keep this unique attraction alive by visiting, playing some pinball, or donating to their GoFundMe.
They’re open everyday of the week. Feel free to stop by anytime Sunday through Thursday from 11am to 11pm as well as on Fridays and Saturdays from 11am to midnight.
