Wedgehead Q + A
How many pinball machines do you have?
A: We have a rotating collection of over 150 machines from all eras, with 21 of them on the floor at any one time.
How often do the machines change? Where can I find a list of your current lineup?
A: The lineup changes all the time, and since we have such a large collection of cool games, we are always swapping machines in and out to keep the lineup fresh. The best place to see what games we have at the moment is the pinball map. (visit our page on pinballmap.com)
How much does it cost for pinball?
A: We offer daily unlimited freeplay pinball for only $12. A wristband gets you access to the pinball room for the rest of the day.
Can I leave and come back?
A: Yes you can leave and come back. You can go see a movie up the street at the Hollywood Theatre, and then come back afterwards and play some more.
What about quarters, can I choose to pay per play instead?
A: There is always one machine downstairs that is set up on old-school coin play. If you’re just planning on grabbing a quick drink before a movie, and want to just get a few quick games in, then you will have the option to play this rotating machine. The other 20 machines are in the upstairs game room, and set to freeplay and are playable only with the purchase of a wristband.
When did you switch to a freeplay model? Why did it change? Will it ever go back?
A: We switched to the freeplay model at the beginning of covid over 2 years ago now. We have now done a version of freeplay for far longer than we ever operated as coin op. It was decided for a variety of reasons that this was best. Some of these reasons include lower labor costs, change shortages from banks, less equipment like change machines and atms, as well as avoiding coin jam issues. This has worked well for us, and has ushered a whole new group of players into pinball. We won’t ever be going back to coinplay, it just doesn’t make sense on a whole lot of levels.
Do you host any tournaments or league nights?
A: Every Thursday we host a friendly team-based pinball event called Howdy Pardner! Click here for more info on the format. Everyone is welcome!
Do you have any video games? Pool? Darts?
A: Nope. Proudly pinball only here at Wedgehead since day one.
Can I rent a pinball machine from you?
A: Yes, you can find more information on how to contact us about pinball machine rentals here (email Wedgehead).
