Best Place to Go When the Weather Turns Bad

Pinball Hall of Fame

Flee foul weather and jump through decades of pinball technology at this windowless shrine to flippers, spinners and bumpers. There are about 200 machines, some dating back to the 1950s. It’s easy to lose hours playing the various versions of Batman pinball, cheering friends on to a high score and watching owner/curator Tim Arnold and his team restore old machines. 1610 East Tropicana Ave., 702-597-2627, TL
