Pinball Hall of Fame
The Pinball Hall of Fame opened in Las Vegas, Nevada in January 2006. It is a project of the Las Vegas Pinball Collectors Club, and it features pinball machines from all eras, including some very rare machines such as Williams' Black Gold, Bally's Pinball Circus and Recreativos Franco's Impacto. It features approximately 400 different pinball games, including some classic video arcade games and other novelty machines of the past and present. The museum is located at 1610 E Tropicana Ave, Las Vegas NV 89119 and is open seven days a week. Current operating hours are 11 AM-11 PM Sunday-Thursday and 11 AM-Midnight Friday-Saturday. The present location opened on November 2, 2009. The museum is a nonprofit venture and its creation came about in part due to donations, which are still accepted. The museum is run by Tim Arnold, a veteran arcade operator who ran "Pinball Pete's" in Lansing, Michigan. Fully staffed by volunteers, excess revenues are donated to the Salvation Army. Tim Arnold has been busy for many years with this project, raising money selling dvds (and vhs tapes) about pinball repair and organising 'fun nights' at his own house. There he also has a very large personal collection of pinball machines.
