The Pinball Hall of Fame Las Vegas
4925 S. Las Vegas Blvd. , Las Vegas, NV, United States, 89119
Twice the size of the old Tropicana PHoF, the new locale is on ‘the Strip’, right across from the ‘Welcome to Las Vegas’ famous sign! (And right across from Mandalay Bay hotel.) This brand new building is standalone and a dedicated museum, with pinball and nothing but pinball for 25,000 square feet.
The Pinball Hall of Fame hours are: open every day Sunday to Thursday 10am till 9pm. Friday and Saturday 10am till 10pm.
The Pinball Hall of Fame is an attempt by the members of the Las Vegas Pinball Collectors Club to house and display the world’s largest pinball collection, open to the public. A not-for-profit corporation was established to further this cause. The games belong to one club member (Tim Arnold), and range from 1950s up to 1990s pinball machines. Since it is a non-profit museum, older games from the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s are the prevelant, as this was the ‘heyday’ of pinball. There are no ‘ticket spitters’ here (aka kiddie casinos or redemption). It’s all pure pinball (and a few arcade novelty games) from the past. And since it’s a non-profit, excess revenues go to non-denominational charities.
