Pinball at the Acton Bowladrome

After dinner at the Atlantic Sea Grill in Acton, MA, I started to drive home, but then remembered from an interview with a pinball luminary (whose name escapes me) that there are pinball machines at the arcade in the Acton Bowladrome. So at a little after 9 pm, I pulled in and checked it out. I can’t believe I’ve bowled there but never checked out the arcade. To my wonder, there were six pinball games.

Monopoly & Elvis

Terminator 3 & Ripley's

Star Wars & Roller Coaster

I played Monopoly, Elvis, Roller Coaster Tycoon, Terminator 3, and Ripley’s Believe It Or Not. I did very well on Monopoly and Terminator 3. On my way out, I thanked the guy behind the counter for the pinball. He said they also sell machines. “Maybe someday,” I said. If you like pinball and you’re in the area, stop in and play some tables. I’ll definitely be back, as it’s only 20+ minutes from my place.

  1. Hi Josh,

    My name is Josh too and I am the owner of the Acton Bowladrome. I just wanted to thank you for the review and welcome you to come back for a free players card on me. We just converted our arcade into a card system rather than tokens and tickets.

    Thanks again for the review and your time

    -Josh Sundberg
