We love seeing retro gaming pop up in more and more places, so we're pretty hyped to hear about a Pinball arcade that opened up in Long Island called High Score Pinball Arcade.
Owner Melissa Cerquin has been a longtime pinball enthusiast and game collector with her boyfriend Mike Burd, and they decided to use their collection to resurrect the Long Island Pinball scene. "I want to bring it back to playing for the fun of it" said Cerquin. "Arcades used to be about getting that high score, getting that top of the iceberg type thing where you have your initials or say your high score immortalized somewhere."
The arcade boasts over 45 Pinball machines and they don't even require quarters. An all-day pass costs just $25 for unlimited Pinball fun, and if you don't have that much time, you can buy an hour for $15, 30 minutes for 10, or 15 minutes for just $7.
Located in the Westfield South Shore Mall, High Score Pinball Arcade is always looking for new Pinball machines to add to their collection. Their website shares a blurb saying, "Do you have a pinball/arcade machine collecting dust in your basement that you'd like to let go to see have a second life? Maybe have a restoration project you might need a hand with but no idea who to call? We at High Score Pinball want to help!"
