Coin-op amusements news | New home for Pinball Hall of Fame gets go-ahead


Proposed plans for a new home for the Las Vegas-based Pinball Hall of Fame have taken a step forward after officials gave it the green light.

Since reported last week in InterGame, Clark County commissioners have now approved the project which will see the new site built near the south edge of the Strip.

Operators of the homage to pinball had submitted their intention to construct a one-story, 26,880sq.ft building on a vacant plot at 4915 Las Vegas Blvd. South, near Russell Road, county documents show.

The plans were unanimously approved.

“This is really, I think, a cool addition to the Strip,” commissioner Jim Gibson, whose district includes the project site, said before the vote, according to the Las Vegas Review Journal

Three times the size of its current home, the new facility will provide the necessary scope for the owners of site to increase the number of machines to up to 700 from its existing 250.

The current timeline for the build is expected to be up to 18 month.
