Illinois (Chicago, suburbs, other cities) Pinball Locations

May 21, 2008

Site last updated 12/25/15

Help: I started this list together to assist individuals like myself for finding places to play pinball in the Chicagoland area but have been expanding it to include other cities in IL. 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. 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 or leave a comment here. Note: I don’t live in Illinois any more and only get in once a year, so I would appreciate anyone sending me updates.

No offense intended to game vendors either. I have been around enough pinball to know they break easily and are costly to maintain. I offer the information only for people to know whether they want to travel to a location to play a machine.

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 and also includes a map with pincushion balloon marking the locations. I have however on this site included the yellow pages’ name for the establishment, additional machine and establishment information, and phone numbers here. Pinball rebel now has a GPS map with balloon markers for locations!

See for a map application and smartphone apps for pinball locations throughout the US including Chicagoland.

If no comment exists next to the game then the condition of the game is unknown.

The intent of this effort is to keep interest in pinball alive commercially and to support the establishments below. To criticize an establishment for having a poorly maintained machine is never the intent of this owner of this website. I offer this material only for the owner’s benefit in help determining what needs to be fixed on a machine and also to help direct patrons to decide where to go.
Have fun!

I typically visit most locations in the suburbs and city on Xmas break and when I am in town except for the college campuses which tend to only be open when school is in session which might mean only weekdays. Any help for those places and those on this list which I have not been able to verify would be appreciated. Thanks!!!

Other sites
Here is another useful link I try to keep this site in sync. There are some locations like those on college campuses that I did not track down. Also if the location did not answer, I did not repeatedly try. There are also places that had pinball but I can no longer find a yellow page location. Also I carried over comments that were there before if the machine is still there. Anyone can update the site. Feel free to make changes to it.


Colorado Pinball Locations

May 20, 2008

Website last updated 04/17/2017

IFPA calendar for list of nearby locations based on your current location

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))
Arvada Someplace Else Brewery
Broomfield Wonderland Brewing Company, Nighthawk Brewery (league starting W Sept 21st)
Castle Rock Stumpy’s Pizza
Denver: The 1Up-Lodo and the The 1up-Colfax (monthly tournaments and best retro arcade in Colorado, milehighpinballleague)
Fort Collins Pinball Jones(monthly tournament), Tap and Handle and Chippers Lanes North
Lakewood: Cuckoo’s Nest (milehighpinballleague), Hyperspace Arcade
Boulder: Abo’s Pizza, BackCountry Pizza, Press Play
Black Hawk: Dory Hills Campground (campout tournament in Sept)

Another location is Arcade Amusements in Manitou Springs which is an arcade that’s been around since 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

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.

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.

Also I am aware on but this site has an admin for Colorado and it may take a while to get info updated there. I try to update information on this and pinballrebel once a week.

1Up, The 08/14/15
1925 Blake Street
(all regularly maintained, several with new LED kits. Also this is the BEST retro arcade (I counted over 20 games) with the selection of video games and in a large playing area so it’s not hot at all. Ok for kids under 16 before 7pm. Open at 11am (F-Sun) otherwise open at 3pm on other days. Summer hours if the Rockies have an afternoon game, they open at 11am) But they don’t like hearing country music on their jukebox. Some of the best players in Colorado play here so scores on games are to that degree.) Games change quite a bit, so check for latest list.

Dimly light upstairs. Although the game vendor is a really nice guy and he runs the Rocky Mountain Pinball Showdown, he admitted that he can’t service these games like he used to. Myself and several others have gone to this arcade and left not felling great about the games. Sorry, just being honest.
Addams Family, The (The rubbers are cracking and almost ready to fall off. the game has loose legs or something because it jiggles very easily setting off the Tilt. I thought the slingshots were very weak as well, perhaps bad connections there. The ball had to hit them pretty hard to activate the slingshot. )

Left flipper is hyperextended, no balrog, legolas, multiple balls on gimli spell trouble, any ball on right rail registers a lit sword lock, the machine has had the same issues for over two years. You would think with two less Gunther Toody’s to service, they could maintain these games better.)

My only comment is they play the music pretty loud so if you play some of the pins near the speaker, your ears will ring. Bring headphones.

Monopoly (stuck cop switch at times leads to outrageous high scores, right flipper can stay extended at time, no auto launch during multiball, ball will get stuck at the top of right return, bank door does not immediately open when you lit lock, at other times when door is open and not in a mini-game entering the bank seems to do nothing. Rest of machine works.)

Very dirty, several lights out. 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; currently playable)

Lyons (Northwest of Denver and Boulder)
Lyons Classic Pinball
339 Main Street
(303) 823-6100 Celebrating their 11th flippin’ year in business!
Monthly tournament 3rd Th of every month. WPPR points. Over 35 well-maintained machines from the 60’s through today. 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 and from other states. Great place to go play by yourself or with friends. The only downside is 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.
Vendor: All games owned and self-serviced
