One of my favorite pinball locations in the world, Rock Fantasy, just gave pinball fans yet another reason to visit Middletown, NY. Rock Fantasy's proprietor, Stephen Keeler, just opened a cool new pinball room and concert spot at the town's bowling alley, Quinnz Pinz.
My son and I made the trip up to Rock Fantasy last weekend. Beyond going to its amazing main location and the Equilibrium Brewery next door for a delicious lunch (there's 3 pins on location there as well), we hopped a minute down the road to check out Rock Fantasy's new pinball room. The Quinnz Pinz location had an outstanding lineup, enough to make it a destination on its own. Currently on the floor there are:
Stern Electronics Nine Ball,
Stern Pinball Spider-Man
Stern Pinball Led Zeppelin Pro
Stern Pinball Batman 66
Stern Pinball Aerosmith Pro
Stern Pinball Guardians of the Galaxy Pro
Stern Pinball Game of Thrones Pro
How awesome is that? And they're in a room that looks exactly like a mini-Rock Fantasy, complete with its iconic black light posters as décor.
What's better than playing location pinball? Playing location pinball with a beer in your hand. Quinnz has a liquor license and serves food. Beyond that, they naturally have bowling lanes, billiards and a number of larger arcade machines, like Pop a Shot, World's Largest Pac-Man, the Walking Dead shooter and more.
Essentially adding these 8 pins to the 3 at Equilibrium Brewery and countless games at Rock Fantasy makes Middletown a pinball heaven. If you haven't been there yet, you most definitely have to check it out.
