LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Clark County Commissioners approved plans on May 8 to allow the Pinball Hall of Fame to build a new, larger location on the Las Vegas Strip.

The Pinball Hall of Fame houses vintage arcade games, some dating back the 1930s, for people to enjoy. Games are priced anywhere from .25 cents to $1.

While it's a popular place for affordable, nostalgic fun, the current location near Tropicana Avenue and Maryland Parkway is about a 15 minute drive from the Strip.

The new Pinball Hall of Fame location would be three times the size of the current location.

Tim Arnold, the owner, purchased land in 2018 near the Welcome to Las Vegas sign with plans of making the attraction more accessible to tourists.

The new location on S. Las Vegas Boulevard would be three times the size of the current location and allow Arnold to bring even more of his 1,000 vintage games out of storage.

In the meantime, the current location has over 260 games to play for pocket change.

The Pinball Hall of Fame is located at 1610 E Tropicana Ave and open from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.
