New Jersey has a great pinball scene, fitting with its nostalgic never changing feel. If you can pull yourself away from the beach and boardwalk arcades, head inland to experience Yestercades. Pay by the hour or grab a day pass to play as much pinball as you’d like, newer machines and old favorites alike.
There are other old school arcade games as well,
and even guitar hero!
Depending on where you are, there are two locations in the state.
+80 Broad St Red Bank, NJ 07701
Not far from the popular beach town of Asbury Park is a lesser known little town called Red Bank. The arcade is located on an adorable, yet bustling Main Street with plenty of mom and pop shops and restaurants.
+29 Division St Somerville, NJ 08876
Close to the city of Edison, a smaller town named Somerville. The second location is within a quaint pedestrian mini-mall. If you’re looking for a bite to eat in the same area, try Division Café across the way. They offer delightful Spanish cuisine, be sure to try their homemade empanadas – the chipotle chicken was phenomenal. The black bean burger was excellent served with yucca fries.
Either spot you’re in for fun reliving the golden age of gaming.
