It's a shame that it's closed. This place would be a paradise for many people (men and women, I also liked to play).

8 Mar 2018 8:25am

@Graciel·la (Vic. Catalonia): It was privately funded and the funds ran out. They are hoping to reopen again.

Franz from Baden, Austria

This takes me back to my younger days, when we filled the time between the end of the school day and the bus leaving for home with playing a few rounds of pin ball in a pub that was of course off limits for us ... ;-)

8 Mar 2018 10:54am

@Franz: I remember seeing these machines in every little restaurant. Now there are non-existent since you can play games on the phone.

Great PoV capturing these pinballers in actions!! I love the colors and reflections! It's a shame that this is closed now. :-(

@Steven: It was privately funded. Unfortunately it didn't attract that much attention. Hopefully it will open again.
