The Silver Ball Planet Reviews

So many pinball machines and they are in great shape. Staff are friendly. There are cheaper machines near the front to practice on if you aren’t an expert. more »
Great selection of games and clean modern interior. One note: there are signs on the street that say "10 yen" which is misleading. 99% of the machines are 100 yen. This is pretty annoying to find out once we got into the actual parlour, which is several floors up. Still worth a visit, but it's pretty cheeky to draw people in like that.
Older machines have weak flippers, but the tilts are set too aggressively so you can't use nudges to compensate for the weak flippers. Harry Potter pinball speed heavily to the left. Leg play varies from machine to machine. It's great that there are so many machines in one place, but it's a very uneven gaming experience. I don't believe the high scores shown on Masters of the Galaxy, for example, are possible with the machine as it is currently set up.
