Australian Pinball Museum
If you are driving from Adelaide to Melbourne or driving Melbourne to Adelaide, the Australian Pinball Museum is the perfect place to stop and stretch your legs and have a few games of the silver ball. Games are reasonably priced with older machines at just $1 a game and they also have a range of the latest Stern machines priced at just $2 a game. (yes pinballs are still being made today)
All the machines are in very good condition and the owner and son have great knowledge in the area and can give you a walkthrough and explanation of the history. They have an ever-changing range of machines as back in the day they use to put machines on-site and their venue is not big enough for them all, Which keeps it interesting each time you may stop through there is generally something new to play. There is also a handful of arcade games there to play.
Australian Pinball Museum is hosting an IFPA (International Flipper Pinball Association) tournament on the last Saturday of every month. After you play 5 ranked matches you will then register on a worldwide leader board. I’m on there but I’ve dropped to 27,000 something 🙂
Open 7 days, 11am to 9pm, or by appointment (may close early if not busy).
