Chicago Street Pinball Arcade
It's the pull of the plunger, the release of the ball, and the battering of the bumpers. It's the clacks of the flippers, clapping to keep that silver streak careening across the board as the scoreboard lights up like Paris at night. That's the magic of pinball, a visceral, immersive, and inherently tactile experience that all of the virtual reality in the world couldn't duplicate.
The mystical silver ball reigns supreme at Chicago Street Pinball Arcade, an electric shine to the godfather of video games. Founded by hobbyists and collectors compelled to share their joy with the public, the downtown Joliet funhouse has blossomed into a fairway for die-hard enthusiasts and first-time tilters alike. An array of machines from different eras reside within. Retro electro-mechanical games from the '60s and '70s mix with digital and solid-state machines from the early '80s, modern electronic games from the '90s, to current incarnations. A few classic video games and a foosball table also enhance the old-fashioned arcade vibe. All of the machines are lovingly maintained by the dedicated staff, who view their work as a birthright; 90% of the world's pinball machines were designed in Chicago by the wizards at companies such as Gottlieb, Stern, and Williams.
