The Pinball Hall of Fame is just off of the strip (if you are in a car) or an hour-ish walk from the middle of the Strip if not. Heading away from the strip on foot the hotels get less grand, no dancing fountains or erupting volcanos here. After passing the university, several fast food outlets, some rather run down looking motels and starting to get a little worried that we were in the wrong place and had no chance of getting back to civilisation (and lunch) the Pinball Hall of Fame materialised.
Entry is free and all of the quarters you spend go to charity. We had so much fun playing the retro games - each one has a little story about where it was from and when it was made - and its nice to know that your quarters are doing some good rather than being frittered away. The machines have all been restored by the museum and in doing so a piece of Vegas and US gaming history is being preserved. I'd definitely recommend a visit - it was super quiet when we visited (getting in the door just as it opened at 11am) but is open all day until late and is definitely a good diversion from the Strip. Maybe just take a taxi if you don't enjoy long, hot walks where you're the only pedestrians in the road!
