$10 for $20 Worth of Gaming Tokens
Tokens ($0.25 each) can be used toward any of the more than 200 pinball, video, and redemption games in the arcade. Game prices range from two to four tokens per play.
The same people who introduced the Austin community to old-school arcade Pinballz Arcade—which is consistently rated one of the top things to do in Austin—have now opened up a brand-new entertainment center in Buda. The appropriately named entertainment realm, Pinballz Kingdom, rests on 13 acres of land complete with a castle-like structure.
Like Pinballz Arcade, Pinballz Kingdom has more than 100 classic and modern arcade games, as well as a collection of 25 pinball machines. Many of the games churn out tickets that can be redeemed for prizes or left in pants pockets for years.
Pinballz Kingdom also entertains families with outdoor laser tag, and it fuels bellies with rustic casual cuisine. While kids play, adults can hang out at Pinballz's multiple themed bars, including Mikki's Biergarten, which boasts 20 Texas and American brews on draft and a bevy of tequila-based cocktails. Or, they can grab a drink and join in the activities, pausing to listen to Pinballz's rotating roster of live bands.
