Playing an arcade game is the most fun a person can have with a quarter, aside from attempting to rip it in two to impress job interviewers or giving George Washington a tiny makeover. Keep your quarters intact with today's Groupon: for $7, you get one adult admission to the Pacific Pinball Museum in Alameda (a $15 value).

An on-site collection of about 90 machines lines the senses-stimulating confines of the Pacific Pinball Museum, featuring rows of both contemporary and vintage models. Machines dating back to 1936 beckon to visitors, who have free playing rights with their admission. Pinball's ancient ancestors reside untouchable behind a red, velvet stanchion and include Montague Redgrave Parlor Bagatelle, which in 1879 supplanted filling the moats of neighboring castles with shaving cream as the most popular pastime. Grandiose murals of classic-machine art adorn the walls above machines ranging from 1950s woodrail to modern-day dot-matrix display. Pull the plunger on games such as Twilight Zone, Funhouse, CSI, El Dorado, and Creature from the Black Lagoon, which emerges from the depths of the museum with a single silver ball.

For all; adults and kids. Fun and nostalgic. Plan on spending a few hours there, if you're a pinball fan.

Great selection of games, we all enjoyed ourselves immensely. Will definitely be back to take on the Doctor Who game again - couldn't get enough of that one! Thanks!
