The Original Pinballz Arcade

183 & Burnet | 8940 Research Blvd. Austin, TX 78758

The Original Pinballz Arcade in Austin is the birthplace of Pinballz. Opened in 2010 after the owner’s personal collection started to get out of hand, the Burnet location has quenched Austin’s thirst for pinball machines and classic arcades ever since. The Original Pinballz Arcade features our largest selection of classic pinball machines, a terrific variety of modern games, and a wide variety of ticket and redemption/award gaming fun.

With tasty fare and soft drinks available from our Replay Cafe, and a customer-friendly BYOB policy, The Original Pinballz Arcade is the perfect choice for your next birthday celebration, company meet-up, or date night. And our newest attraction, the Zombie Crisis Escape Room Challenge, is perfect for your next team-building event or family-and-or-friends get-together!
