Free beer continues every other Thursday with Pints and Pinz on December 12th and 26th at 7pm.


Game’s On at Pinballz Kingdom

Inner Soldier Outdoor Laser Tag

We’re unveiling our newly revamped outdoor laser tag at Pinballz Kingdom. In December, you say? In Texas, we say yes! Weather permitting of course, but with the average number of rainy days at 7.8, we’ll take our chances and you should, too. Basic Training is $15 for 30 minutes and the more advanced Tactical Combat is $25 for 1 hour. Age 9+

Pinballz Kingdom will be multi-tasking this month between televised high school football championships, college football bowls, the NFL, NBA, and college hoops. What could be better than sports on the tele, cold beer on tap, and a game-room to make any man-cave jealous?


Johnnie Walker at Lake Creek

Friday, December 20th is the sixth installment in our monthly whiskey tastings at The Whiskey Bar at Lake Creek. For the holidays, we’ve put together a substantive flight featuring Johnnie Walker Gold, Green, Black, and Red. Tickets are $25 and include four tastings plus a charcuterie board. VIP tickets are available and include the standard tasting items as well as a pour of the high grade Johnnie Walker Blue.


Christmas Celebrations

We like to ring bobtail bells like everyone else, but what we really like to do is make spirits bright. We also like ugly Christmas sweaters. You get the drift…

Monday, December 16th is Ugly Sweater Contest #1 at The Original Pinballz Arcade. Free margs start at 7pm and the contest starts at 8:30pm. Sounds like a perfect combo!

Friday, December 20th is officially Ugly Christmas Sweater Day with contests #2 and #3 at Pinballz Lake Creek and Pinballz Kingdom. Yes, you’ll need to pick your location because both contests start at 8:30pm. 

If you haven’t found a sweater, you can still take part as the winners will be crowd favorites. Spoils go to the loudest fan base. Hooyah!

Saturday, December 21st is all about the kids as we break out the holiday craft tables. We’ll have keepsake ornaments for the kiddo’s to personalize at our Holiday Craft Event from 10am-12pm at all three locations. Please sign-up online so we can be sure to have enough supplies. $10 fee includes a $5 Pinballz game card.

Pinballz will have extended hours this month, opening at 10am every day except Christmas Day.

Noon Year’s & New Year’s Eve

Noon Year's & New Year's Eve

It’s the end of a decade and it’s an all day party at Pinballz starting at 10am with kids crafts followed by a balloon drop at high noon. We call it Noon Year’s, and it’s the kind of all-ages event that brings us year after year of Best of Austin awards for Best Party Place and Best All Ages Venue. (Thank you for the recognition, Pinballzers!)

We are open until 2am at all locations with a free champagne toast at midnight on New Year’s Eve. No cover charge, just come play, and have fun.

B.Y.O.B all night and free alcoholic beverages at The Original Pinballz Arcade 9pm until supplies last. Pinballz Lake Creek and Kingdom have $4 margaritas and $2 off all tequila from 4-7pm and 10pm-midnight.

Happy New Year!
