It’s been decades since I played pinball so a reasonable entry price (around £7 equivalent) made this an enticing way to spend a few hours during a great overall city trip.
Hosting well over 100 pinball machines from the 1950’s onwards, plus other forgotten arcade games across all genre, all set for unlimited free play. No time limit on your visit makes this good value and a great nostalgic trip into earlier entertainment.
Location is around 5mins walk from Margaret bridge.

Amazing- like a portal into the 80s. So many different machines! We thought it could get boring doing the same thing but they had so many other games aside from pinball (we spent 5 hours down there without even realising). Also great as they displayed information about the dates and creators of the machines.

Top place! Had an unexpected afternoon to spend in Pest and just found this place random, thought I check the basement out and find a couple of machines play a bit for nostalgia, well surprised when I saw how many machines there are, the condition they are in, how friendly and knowledgeable the staff are. Spent a cracking couple of hours there and didn’t even think about doing anything else, there are enough machines there to try for multiple visits and they have more of them in the back. The Hercules pinball makes me laugh every time I think about it, the South Park one was really good, but the guns and roses one I spent most of my time at. Well chuffed and get to know some people with the same interests as well.

The vibe was out of this world. Everyone is super nice and you don't have to worry about talking to random people because everyone is doing their own thing. It was super fun and the game selection there was amazing. Everyone there would be able to find at least one game that they like.

Brilliant! Great collection of pinball & other arcade games. Pay to go in then play machines for free. Obviously a much loved collection.

By far the coolest place I have visited in a long time. It's easy to get distracted by all the games there enough to lose track of time.

It was really fun in all honesty, a pure unadulterated trip down nostalgia avenue to revisit old gems like Killer Instinct and Mortal Kombat!

As someone who hasn't played pinball in the past to this level, it was a welcomed opportunity to jump head into some of the coolest looking machines in history!

I loved seeing some of my favourite franchises immortalised into machines such as Bram Stoker's Dracula, Terminator 2, and even double-taked at the Guns n Roses machine!

A must-see place

They really have a lot of vintage games and you can play with all of them free of charge (but there is an admission ticket of few euros). Totally recommended if you want to try Pinball, SuperMario, etc.

One of the best places in Budapest. I havent so much fun for long time. First idea was to have coffe and let kids playing, but I was totally cached and impressed. Older machines are beautiful and interesting, newer are funnier and flashing !!! I get back to my teenage in few seconds. Dont forget try modern Rockstar quitar, Martial combat and try to get all 18 balls in game by Apollo 13. Love it! 5 stars are not enough!!!

This is the best place I’ve been in a while! There were so many machines. It was really quiet so there was plenty of chance to use all the machines.

It was the first place I went on arrival in Budapest due to the short walk from my air bnb. IT DID NOT DISAPPOINT. The best part was that on Sunday it is open until 10pm (local time) I was there for 4 hours and just lost track of time I only left because they were closing!

I managed to play all the machines I wanted to and never felt obliged to leave because no one was waiting. The staff were friendly and courteous and their English was good too.

I felt very welcome and very safe the whole time I was there and would 100% go and visit again!

It is excellent value for money roughly £8 when converted and the food and drink in there was very reasonable too. It had a family friendly atmosphere and everyone was having a great time.

I highly recommend this on your trip to Budapest especially if you like nostalgia and something fun to lose track of time.
