ABOUT PINBALL LAND

Rockford Michigan’s Family Friendly Arcade

Located in beautiful downtown Rockford, Pinball Land is a retro arcade featuring 7 rooms of awesome pinball machines and some of the best video arcade games of all time.

The best part – no quarters required!  No appointments!  Just come in, pay admission and all of the games inside are free to play.

You can play for just an hour, or get an all-day pass so you can come and go as much as you like.  The all day pass allows you to take breaks for food and drink at any of the terrific bars and restaurants in Rockford to really make a day of it.

Pinball Machines

Pinball Land features pinball games from many eras and styles, showcasing a wide range of what pinball is all about. We have games from all of the major pinball manufacturers: Gottlieb, Bally, Williams and Stern, all well-maintained to our high standards. Play ’em all, find your favorite, then ask the friendly Arcade Guardian on duty for tips and tricks!

Video Arcade Games

It’s not just pinball at Pinball Land!  We also have a great selection of classic video arcade games, including sit-down driving games where you can race head-to-head!  We have Ms. Pac Man, Centipede, Asteroids, Gauntlet, Galaga, Mortal Kombat 2, Crazy Taxi, Area 51, Mr. Do, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Donkey Kong and many more!  Between all of our dedicated cabinets as well as our “multicade” machines, we have over 100 video arcade games to choose from!

Thanks to Rockford’s RORA (Rockford Outdoor Refreshment Area) program, you can also bring in beverages from any participating vendor!  And we even have cup holders on all the pinball machines for your drinking-and-playing convenience.

There’s even a public parking lot directly behind us, street parking out front, and another lot behind Cinco De Mayo – all free!

Private Parties and Special Events

Pinball Land is a great place for a private party, whether you’re hosting a small birthday party, holding a team-building event with your company, or just having a fun night out with your group of friends.

You can rent the entire arcade for a 2-hour block either before we open to the public or after we close.  You can even bring in your own food and drinks!  Contact us to get your private party set up.

Play a real game, with your real friends, in real life

We’re in this because we love pinball and the arcade experience and want to share the love with you and your family!  Have fun, make memories, and maybe even set some high scores.

You don’t need an appointment or a reservation – just come on down and have some fun with games!  We’re open 6 days a week (closed Mondays).
