How Many Guests Can I Invite to My Party?

Pinball Land has over 60 pinball machines and video arcade games available to play at any given time, so we can accommodate a lot of players at once! If everyone’s coming to play, we recommend no more than 50 guests.

We also have 2 six-foot tables with chairs available for the perfect birthday party setup. The tables can comfortably seat up to 12 people with additional chairs available for some spillover seating.

Who Can Play at My Private Party?

We highly recommend that all guests come to your party prepared to play!

If pinball isn’t your thing, no worries – we have some of the very best video arcade games of all time ranging all the way from 1978 to the early 2000’s. We will have something your guests will want to play!

Due to the size and nature of pinball machines and retro video arcade games, we recommend all players be at least 6 years old. We have step stools available for shorter players.

Behavior Expectations at Private Parties

It’s important to understand that the games at Pinball Land are not “Chuck-E-Cheese” style games where you bash buttons and win tickets. We have only classic skill-based video games and pinball machines on the floor – some are genuine antiques!

That being the case, we do not allow abusive, malicious play. Abusive players be given a verbal warning from the staff and will then lose their playing privileges after a second warning.

We want everyone to have fun, but fun doesn’t have to come in the form of destruction. We expect our games and facility to be treated respectfully.

Food and Drink at Your Private Party

When you book a private party at Pinball Land it’s YOUR party!

That means you may bring whatever you would like to drink and munch on. We will have our candy and soda pop for sale, or you can bring a cooler full of your favorite beverages and snacks.

We only ask that you please do not bring in ice cream or anything with a sticky sauce, like chicken wings or cut fruit.

For birthday parties, feel free to bring a cake (cupcakes work great!) but please, no ice cream. We do not have a freezer and ice cream tends to make quite a mess.

If you have any questions about what you can bring to your private party, please ask via info@pinball-land.com.
