A trip to the Pinball Hall of Fame will return you to the era of uncomplicated games. Before computers, there was pinball. In those pre-technology days, pinball was a fun and easy way to spend your quarters. No fancy controls, nothing hard to learn: pull back the plunger and release the ball. Use two buttons on the side of the machine to keep the ball in play. You could even change the course of the ball in the machine with a vigorous shaking—provided you didn't alert the machine's "tilt" alarm. Tim Arnold, a member of the Las Vegas Pinball Collector's Club, remembers those days well, and he's amassed an impressive collection of restored, vintage pinball machines. This is a family-appropriate, budget-friendly attraction located not far off the Strip. Game play for the restored vintage machines is 25 to 50 cents. The Pinball Hall of Fame takes pride in a homey, unfussy atmosphere that's all about having a good time and playing pinball.
