A Visit to the Pacific Pinball Musuem


I got to visit the Pacific Pinball Museum in Alameda and it was like heaven. I love pinball and it was amazing to see and play all these amazing games for a low price at the door:
















They even had a jukebox:

I don't really like putting myself on here but here is a boy and his pinball:


If you are in the area and get a chance, check it out some pinball
