Cincinnati is full of hidden treasures, and Pinball Garage is perhaps the coolest place we’ve stumbled upon.
Pinball Garage opened a couple of months ago in downtown Hamilton. It features over 30 vintage, restored pinball machines available for play. Pinball Garage in Hamilton is a fun throwback and definitely worth checking out this fall!
Pinball Garage is the creation of Brad Baker, a pinball enthusiast who loves collecting and restoring old machines. In fact, many of the garage’s machines are incredible rare or unique; the newer machines (think: Stranger Things and Star Wars) appeal to today’s gamers.
“We spared no expense on the pinball machines here,” says Baker. “We’ve invested a lot of money to bring high quality pinball to the Hamilton area.” He adds that Pinball Garage has the best quality of pinball machines in the tristate. Looking ahead, Baker plans to expand Pinball Garage to add another 50 machines, making it one of the largest pinball arcades in the country.
In addition to its extensive pinball collection, this new-to-Hamilton attraction boasts a full bar for adults — and two soft drinks on tap available for kids. They also have a full food menu courtesy of ALL8UP pizzeria next door.
As we continue to navigate life during a pandemic, Pinball Garage has regulations in place to keep your family safe. In addition to requiring masks and mandating a 50-person occupancy limit, the machines have been arranged to allow for six-feet social distancing guidelines. The games get cleaned regularly, and Pinball Garage also has hand sanitizing stations throughout the facility.
