Ski ball is just one of the classic games to test your skills at, walking players back in time to a carnival scene of long ago. The classic gypsy fortune teller and a skeleton bicyclist call Marvin’s Marvelous Mechanical Museum home, dating back to the 1800’s. More than 10 vintage pinball games can be found amongst the marvel as well as vintage stand-up arcade games that will send you through a virtual walk down memory lane. Be sure to keep an eye to the sky during your visit as hundreds of planes, fans and other fare await you hanging from the ceiling above.
