    Arrow Sacramento Coin-Op Game Room

    Spent the evening here with a couple friends and the wife. Pretty rad place. Nice selection of newer pins and old school arcade games. Good drinks and decent food.

    Here's their pinball lineup:

    Ghostbusters
    Game of Thrones
    The Walking Dead
    The Simpsons Pinball Party
    South Park
    The Sopranos
    Theatre of Magic
    AC/DC
    Spiderman
    Whitewater
    High Speed 2: The Geataway
    Fish Tales

    One of my buddies is a big Walking Dead and Game of Thrones fan, and he's just now getting into pinball, so he was pretty blown away by those pins.

    The only negative thing I can say about it is that the music was really loud, so you basically have to yell at each other to communicate. This is of course true with almost any bar, but the other downside in this particular case is that you can't really hear the games, even between songs since most of the games were turned down pretty low anyway, which is a bit of a bummer, but understandable. Also, I guess I should probably warn you that the pizza was on the "meh" side and took forever to get to us. I recommend eating at one of the other nearby spots and sticking to the drinks here.

    I don't want to complain much though because it is a really cool place and we had a great time. The game selection makes up for any negatives and the staff members were very friendly. One of the guys was amazed that my wheelchair could raise up and cheered me on for a bit while I play TOM.

    Here's a pic of me playing Whitewater with my chair elevated:

    Thanks. A shame about the noise. I hate it when I can't hear the machine I'm in front of. Also, when did you move up north?

    @Heretic totally man. The newer stuff just isn't as fun.
    @Xanija Right on, glad you enjoyed it.
    @Fungi As John Fogerty would say: Just about a year ago...

    A pic from my most recent visit this past weekend:



    That's me all the way on the end.

    They have all the pins along the very back wall now, which is much nicer since it's quieter and less crowded back there.

    I've been there several times over the last couple years, but realized I haven't updated the thread.

    Their lineup has changed quite a bit over time. The latest additions are Star Wars, Iron Maiden, Batman 66, and Houdini.

    The previous time I was there a few months ago, they had Dialed In and Aerosmith, but those were replaced with SW and Iron Maiden.

    Current lineup:

    The Addams Family (Bally, 1992)
    Attack From Mars (Bally, 1995)
    Batman 66 (LE) (Stern, 2016)
    Game of Thrones (Pro) (Stern, 2015)
    Ghostbusters (LE) (Stern, 2016)
    Houdini: Master of Mystery (American, 2017)
    Iron Maiden: Legacy of the Beast (Pro) (Stern, 2018)
    Lord of the Rings (Stern, 2003)
    The Simpsons Pinball Party (Stern, 2003)
    The Sopranos (Stern, 2005)
    South Park (Sega, 1999)
    Star Wars (LE) (Stern, 2017)
    The Walking Dead (Premium) (Stern, 2015)
    White Water (Williams, 1993)

    I miss Theatre of Magic the most, but AFM is a good tradeoff.

    My wife's favorite to play there is The Sopranos (it’s interesting to see what non-pinheads pick, heh. My brother for instance didn’t even touch AFM when he was there, which is kinda sad, but definitely illustrates the effectiveness of licenses as well as flashy LCD screens).
