Coney Island Pinball Party

PINBALL RETURNS TO CONEY ISLAND…

Join us as we kick off our 2nd year at The CONEY ISLAND PINBALL MUSEUM. What started as an experimental exhibit is slowly becoming a Coney Island mainstay. This year we will be throwing some of the wildest pinball parties this planet has ever seen. From Sideshow stunts to the best of Burlesque Coney Island Pinball Parties are guaranteed to take pinball entertainment to the next level.

So step right up and pay tribute to our collection of vintage pinball machines at this exciting party featuring “replays” of related documentaries and live pinball themed performances. All our games will be put in THE FREAK BAR and set on FREE PLAY, with cool prizes for high scores.

With the historic CYCLONE Roller Coaster visible from our windows, it was only fitting that we dedicate our first event to the 1988 CYCLONE pinball machine by WILLIAMS…

$15 – All tickets include a coney Island pinball button & stickers
