Colorado Pinball Locations

PLAY PINBALL IN COLORADO!!!
Website last updated 04/13/2014

I’ve put this site together as an up-to-date reference for all places to play pinball commercially in Denver, surrounding suburbs, and towns.

If you are interested in serious play and playing with some of the best in Colorado (tournaments, leagues (LCP only), and well-maintained machines), check out the listings below for
Lyons:Lyons Classic Pinball (LCP) (monthly tournament, 10-week league, retro arcade at Lyons Classic Video (in basement of Oskar Blues Brewery located next door))
Denver: The 1Up-Lodo and the The 1up-Colfax (monthly tournaments and best retro arcade in Colorado, milehighpinballleague)
Fort Collins Pinball Jones(monthly tournament) and Chippers Lanes North
Idaho Spings: Flipper McGills
Lakewood: em>Cuckoo’s Nest (milehighpinballleague)
Leadville: Strikes N Spares Bowling Center
Boulder: BackCountry Pizza, Press Play
Black Hawk: Dory Hills Campground (campout tournament in Sept)

Another location is Arcade Amusements in Manitou Springs from 1908 which has a large selection particular of older games (50′s-80′s) and a few recent titles.

There are other websites where you can get this information but this is also to list the places that have one or two machines that might not be known otherwise. Also the quality of the machines is described if gameplay is less than desired. Please refer to the establishments’ websites when applicable for the latest information. Please help me keep this information up to date. If the pin is working less than desired, please report to the establishment’s owner. I have found most are accommodating. Mail any updates to Doug at doug_gaming@yahoo.com

Make sure to support these establishments and thank them for having pinball.

Note: You should always call ahead if you plan on bringing children with you particularly if the establishment sells liquor.

This following site is another representation of the data in alphabetical order by machine and is publicly updatable. It is also now includes a map with GPS ballon markers for locations! I have however on this site included the yellow pages’ name for the establishment, additional machine and establishment information, and phone numbers here. www.pinballrebel.com

If folks send me the high score at a location with initial besides those places which already keep track of their high scores (e.g. Lyons Classic Pinball), I will post them here.

Open at 11am (F-Sun) otherwise open at 3pm on other days. Summer hours during baseball season (open at 11am every day) But they don’t like hearing country music on their jukebox.

301 W 104th Ave
Elvis (band missing near hotel causes ball to get stuck there, everything working, hurry up and play and as game has poor track record and GT games take a lot of abuse from kids constantly batting flippers. Very dirty, several lights out. flippers require pressing near top of button as contacts are not clean causing flipper failure or jitters at times. There are no lights above the top rollovers so you can’t see the WLVS on the indicators. Note: a fast ball down right outlane will sometimes bounce back into play off of the collar compared to other Elvis machines I have played. Games have poor track record of repair; it’s hit or miss and most often, miss)

Ripley’s Believe It or Not (don’t bother, ripley’s scoop not awarding from front and game losing track of ball, boomerang most times also does not award (takes ball search to find), poor repair record, the following have been issues with this game for well over a year: left flipper needs servicing as gets too weak to do anything, top right flipper is also very weak, no auto launch on right launcher lane for any continent multiball modes allowing player to “rape” game with one ball with other(s) sit in launcher, when penguin jackpot lit the little post up top doesn’t pop-up, penguin or adv tombstone light on right orbit, ripley’s arrow does not light, else plays ok and all features work. Strict tilt! Ball gets stuck easily above lower right bumper.)

Lafayette
Coal Creek Bowling Center 04/10/12
550 W South Boulder Rd
(303) 673-0772
Star Wars Episode I (always leary of a place where all games are shut off and a big sign that says play games at your own risk, no refunds! This is for good reason but it is a shame as it looks like an arcade warehouse with all the old games like Pengo. R2 rollover not register so no skill shot or extra ball, lots of lights out on playfield (e.g. JEDI), red light on monitor is out, backlight is out else seems to play fair)

Lyons (Northwest of Denver and Boulder)
Lyons Classic Pinball
339 Main Street
(303) 823-6100
www.lyonsclassicpinball.com Monthly tournament 3rd Th of every month. WPPR points. Over 35 well-maintained machines from the 60′s through today. See website for game list. Pinball league (10-week) on non-tournament THs. Probably the best place to play in CO if you want the largest number of best kept machines including many of the classics. However because of this, they attract the best players in CO. Great place to go play by yourself or with friends. The only downsides are that they are only open in the late afternoon to evening TH-Sun but can open on other days for bday parties. They have a game room with 3-4 pins plus other vintage video games at Oskar Blues which opens at 11am daily around the corner. The high scores on all their machines are reset every August but are primarily dominated by two high ranked WPPR players. Unless you are really good, have a lot of money, and time, I wish anyone well there trying to obtain a high score on a machine; otherwise, it’s almost a lost cause. Even if you get a high score early in the season, one of the pinheads there will see it as a challenge and not have your score last a couple weeks. I speak that from experience as I consider myself a good pinball player but many people that play there either work or have worked in the field, have games in their home, play regularly there, etc. Competition at tournament is fierce and some of the comments from some of the folks that play there can almost be unwelcoming if you are not part of the “cliche” (but if you are pinhead, you know what I mean).
Vendor: All games owned and self-serviced
