Pinballz Arcade: Date Night with Long Exposures


I recently paid a visit to Pinballz Arcade in Austin. This hidden treasure in North Austin is the mecca for all pinball machines, arcade games, and geeky fun. It’s not everyday you get to interact with Dirty Harry, Playboy Bunnies, and Elvira all in one night. Prepare to be amazed!

This is a true old-school experience. Probably, one of the last authentic arcades left, something you just have to experience. Pinballz is a local family-run business that has the largest pinball collection in Texas. Be prepared to see 200 classic pinball machines all together under one roof. As a self-proclaimed Ms. Pacman connoisseur, I was surprised to discover a Baby Pacman machine, half pinball, and half arcade game.

I went armed with my bulb firing friends – The Fisheye 2, the La Sardina, and the Sprocket Rocket. All the flashing lights will produce long exposures of your dreams! So even if you’re out of quarters, grab your camera for a fun shooting experience! I haven’t even gotten to the best part, it’s BYOB. So grab a six-pack, some friends, and get ready to geek out! For $20 I played for 2 hours, shot 2 rolls of film, and drank a couple of beers. That’s what I call a great night out!

Fisheye No. 2 has a 170-degree wide angle view and stunning barrel distortion. Now with a hotshoe and multiple and long exposure capabilities, the world’s greatest compact Fisheye camera is now more amazing than you ever thought possible! Available in different colours and special designs.
