There are many dives, bars and restaurants, where you can find a stray pinball or two around Jacksonville. If you’re looking for a solid collection of machines these three locations are for you.
+Fernandina Beach Pinball Museum, 2106 Sadler Rd, Fernandina Beach, FL 32034
Almost thirty pinball machines in mint condition, this is the premiere spot to play the silverball in the Jacksonville Area in a very clean and friendly atmosphere. Rates are unlimited free play, all day for $14 or just for an hour at $10. Make sure you check the hours, as they are limited. Older classics and brand new machines like Game of Thrones and Ghostbusters.
Some of my favorites such as Tales from the Crypt and the Simpsons.
It’s interesting, but I’ve never seen a Space Jams machine outside of the Jacksonville, but they seem to be at a few different locations.
+Video Game Rescue, 2415 Blanding Blvd, Jacksonville, FL 32210
The collection of machines here is really nostalgic for those of us who grew up in the 90s, but great for anyone, including Ninja Turtles, Ghostbusters,
Super Mario Bros, Street Fighter,
and another Space Jams!
There are other vintage arcade games like Pacman and this is also a video game store where you can purchase games to play at home. Open daily through the early evening.
+Solids and Stripes Billiards, 175 Blanding Blvd #4, Orange Park, FL 32073
A bar where you can play pool with a side of pinball.
The Addams Family is one of the most popular machines of all time, and I personally love the Sopranos because it’s a great machine and I enjoyed the show. What was really exciting for me was the Golden Eye pinball, because I’d never seen it until this bar!
