Tilt Pinball Arcade Opens in Downtown Fargo

Posted: Updated:

The newest hangout in downtown Fargo is now open for business and looking for members. Tilt Pinball is an arcade dedicated to solely pinball machines.

The arcade opened this weekend and will remain open 24 hours a day, meaning members and their guests will be able to play pinball just about anytime they want to.

The arcade has 11 pins from the 70's, 80's and 90's with more to come. Nelson says arcades, and specifically pinball machines, give gamers an experience they can't get from more modern computer or smart phone games.

"You can't duplicate the physics and the feel and the reality that you get out of a pinball machine on a computer or on a home system," says Scott Nelson.  "You can get, certainly, the play fields and the layout of the game play, but the physics are drastically different."

If you're interested in checking it out, you can stop by and talk with Scott Nelson, one of the masterminds behind the arcade. If you like what you see, he will help you get signed up for a membership.

Going forward, the arcade will continue to have days that are open to the public so non-members have the opportunity to experience the pinball arcade.  Members will have keys so they get the 24-hour access and if you sign up before March you get a free t-shirt.

A membership is $35 per year and you must be at least 18 years old to be a member. Tilt Pinball is located at 413 Broadway in downtown Fargo.
