I went Saturday 3/21 to the Ohio Pinball Show and it was pretty cool. I played many machines I have not seen in years. I will post a list of the games and hopefully some pix when I have a chance.
Also, Jasmine from WCSB mentioned on the show last week that the ABC Bar on W25th has a game called Dark Rose. She said it was in good repair and worth actually going to a bar on W25th st.

Becky's has Theater of Magic but it was OOO last Friday 6/11/09.

Theater of Magic is in perferct repair @ Becky's. I 'highly' recommend it as I had hours of enjoyment the other day playing it (and either won or matched a few free games as well).
I have heard the Happy Dog [www.myspace.com] has Addam's Family in good repair which is arguably the holy grail of pinballers.
Update: Holiday Inn, Westlake, INVADERS FROM MARS (the older one with the vibrating aliens), NBA Fast Break, Roller Games

Common Grounds at Kamm's Corner has Tales from the Crypt and Star Trek; The Next Generation and both seem in decent working order. The replays and high scores are way up there because of all the caffeinated folks playing them all the time...But I am not complaining about anyplace on Earth that has TWO pinball machines. BTW Now That's Class has an old-school pinball machine (I am not sure which one) that is set up for continuous FREE play.

Alas, Tales from the Crypt is no longer @ Common Grounds and has been replaced by an Out of Order Hook table?!?!!? sad smiley But at least there is potential for two pinball tables at one location on the West Side of Creepland.

Common Grounds Update: Hook is gone, but Star Trek: The Next Generation is in excellent repair and giving up the free plays.

Sorry I'm a few years late on this awesome fucking thread, but I want to offer what I know. I have been looking for pinballs in Cleveland non-stop and it's very difficult but here's what I've found. I hope I revive this thread.

The Chamber (Lakewood) - They have 2 machines but one wasn't working, the other was in horrible lighting conditions. I wish I could remember the titles, but they were both newer games from the mid 90's.
Swings N Things (Olmsted Fals) - Strike XTreme, Lethal Weapon 3, Ripley's Believe It Or Not, Bram Stroker's Dracula, Southpark, and Revenge From Mars
The Jolly Scholar (located at the Thwing Center at Case Western): Congo
Boneyard Mayfield Heights - The have a couple but I was so drunk I can't remember the titles.
Happy Dog (W58/Detroit) - Twilight Zone, Theatre of Magic, and I forgot the third one, I think it might have been Adams Family. They are 3 of the top modern games, if that's your style (not mine so much).
Grog Shop - Simpsons (??) last itme I was there I think it was as recent as 6 months ago they still had it.
IX Center - I believe the game room below the ferris wheel is there year round, but the indoor amusement park in March-April has several of them.
Cedar Point - As previously mentioned.

Places that should but don't: Dave & Busters, and Kalahari, both have arcades but no pinball....

There's several bars in Lakewood that have some, but I can't remember the names of the bars. Also - bowling alley's usually have one or two, and fun centers/mini golf sorta places almost all have arcades with some pinball. I am sick of going to these shitty places looking for pinball, but I am making my rounds to them as I get around. Swings N Things had 6 games but all were dot matrix games that I hate. It was still nice to see that many in one place.

Pinball Shoppe in North Olmsted sells pinball machines and you can try them out (if you pretend you're interested). Danny Vegh's on Lorain also has pinball machines. There is NO OTHER dealer in NE Ohio, no matter how hard you look, I tried for months and gave up.

I'll post more as I find them. Thanks Sweetassassafrass for starting this thread!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wanna buy a machine? CRAIGSLIST is the absolute best way, that's how I got the ones I bought.

Winter is here in Cleveland. Time for a game?
Re: Pinball-locator Thread

I think Happy Dog has Medievil Madness and not Theater of Magic, either way they have three machines and that makes them extra cool.

Sadly, Common Grounds no longer has any pinball machines and no plans on getting any in the future

Hey dudes

Harbor Inn in the flats (referred to as the "Anchor Bar" in one of the posts) still has a great T3 machine.
Parkview (3 blocks north of Happy Dog on W. 58th) has Lord of the Rings.
Lincoln Park Pub has Simpsons
Rowley Inn (Across the street from The Christmas Story House, near Tremont) recently removed their bowling and Asteroids machines.. When I was there 2 weeks ago they had Lord of the Rings and Fish Tales (Fish Tales was not plugged in though).

Anyone know if Twilight Zone at happy dog is broken? Every time I am there it is off...

this site has been helpful - if you know of any other places you should add them

Also useful for other cities...

Pacers downtown now has a brand new Rolling Stones (can't get into that game at all).

Re: Pinball-locator Thread

Any fresh updates to this list? I was at the Happy Dog last night and played on a couple of good machines there, plus they started a pinball league this Fall - wondering about other places that have good pinball in NE Ohio
Re: Pinball-locator Thread

I see there are a lot of places made note of in previous comments, but so many of them are from at least a year ago or more, wondering what's current for today : ) thanks for any help
