Quinn’s Pinz & Rock Fantasy - Middletown, NY (April 2019)

Earlier today, my youngest son and I hit up the Trifecta of Middletown, New York pinball locations...the iconic Rock Fantasy and two other locations that it operates pins at, Tapped restaurant next door and the Quinnz Pinz bowling alley / bar / arcade two minutes down the road.


I’ve talked about how awesome Rock Fantasy is before so I won’t get into all that now, but I will talk about the games. We got to play both Spooky Pinball’s new Alice Cooper’s Nightmare Castle, Stern’s Munsters Pro and Chicago Gaming’s top of the line Monster Bash Remake for the first time. All three were a blast to play.


We played the most games on one of our personal favorites, Stern Electronics’ Cheetah. Deadpool is also starting to really grow on us...a DP Pro is high on the possible next game to buy list. Every time we play the Beatles we have a surprisingly good time on it. To me, it’s such a fun shooter.


I know that I should love them, but for some reason the Chicago Gaming remakes left me cold today. Monster Bash, Attack from Mars and Medieval Madness are top ten games of all-time and the remakes are beautiful but I played like junk on them today. In fact, I usually play terrible on them. I’m no WPPR king but I’m not THAT bad. Strange.


In addition to bowling and the pictured pins, Quinnz has a bunch of very high-end redemption and modern arcade games, like the huge Jurassic Park and The Walking Dead sit down shooters, hoops, 4-player air hockey, The World’s Largest Pac-Man, Space Invaders Frenzy, linked Raw Thrills Super Cars. I’m talking really awesome stuff.


Both Quinnz and Tapped (which is connected to the Equilibrium Brewery) have liquor licenses with great beers on tap. Tapped also has a full food menu. We had burgers and Chicken & Waffles. Both were “very yummy” (according to my son 🙂 ).
