Modern Pinball-Kips Bay-Manhattan-Arcade-NYC

If you’re really into pinball, you’ll be pumped by the arrival of a new arcade called Modern Pinball in Kips Bay which only has pinball machines. It’s mission statement:

We’re Modern Pinball NYC – dead-set on becoming the premiere pinball machine retailer and Interactive Showroom. “What’s an Interactive Showroom?” you may ask! It’s a new concept that allows you to pay-one-price to enjoy all the amazing, cool and wonderful fun that is pinball! Plus, whatever you spend can be applied toward the future purchase of a game from us! Pinball bliss!

As reported by DNAInfo and Brokelyn, at Modern Pinball, you can apply your winnings to the ownership of a pinball machine which range between $1500 and $12,000. The featured comments are also priceless, with someone named Tara Key, noted to have come out of retirement, saying “I cannot wait. Two blocks from my house. I had given up playing. I feel like I just gained 15 years of my life back.”

The spot opens up on October 28th at 362 Third Avenue. And as a random fun note, we thought you should know that the French call pinball “flipper” and foosball,”Baby Foot.” Read more more stores that only sell one thing on Untapped Cities.

    “Someone named Tara Key” is Tara Key from the band Antietam. She is an incredible pinball player (I hope you have “The Adams Family” game for proof – and she’s one of the best guitarists I’m aware of, even including Neil Young!
