I have traveled to many Countries and besides the US this pinball museum has everything a pinball fanatic would wish for. The majority of the machines also work so you can spend hours playing.

This is a great little find to pass a couple hours. Very different then must of the tourist things you usually do. Stop in a check it out if you are spending more then a few days in town.

For anybody who is interested either in the history of gaming or in the pinball machines themselves, this place is a must. Access is rather easy, just a few streets up from one of the central streets. The area is very safe.

Entrance is quick once the 3,000 HUF/person fee (late 2018) is paid; the price of admission is more than fair. The staff speaks English just fine, which helps a lot. There is also a cafeteria space inside with a wide selection of drinks and some edibles to help the visit along.

As for the machines themselves, the diversity is enormous, spanning different eras and styles. Most of them are very well-maintained, and you get a good feeling of what they played like when they were new. Definitely many notches above what you would get in most other places.

The space is very generous, and even though everybody is playing side-by-side, you don't really need to go shoving people around and tapping on shoulders all the time, which makes the whole experience very relaxed.

You will be able to play all of the classic machines here and on the other hand find new machines to like. I had never had contact with Banzai Run back in my country, and now have come to enjoy it a lot, for example.

Do yourself a favor and pay a visit!

For pinball lovers and for those novices who wish to discover Pinball. A great alternative for a night of fun and action. Includes all the classics from the 70/80's.

It was so much fun to try every single machine in there and we spent about 3 hours doing so! We went at around 8.30pm so it was nice and quiet. Once you pay the entrance fee, you can go on as many machine as you want, as often as you want, so don't have to worry about "Game Overs". There's a quirky place to buy drinks with lots of American sodas and candied.
