Benefits of membership


We are a great local resource/support system for arcade game maintenance and playing tips. Playfield touchups and repair tips, Eprom and chip replacement, and General solenoid and grounding guidelines are just a few of the things our members can help with. We are familiar with most widely recognized manufacturers including: Bally, Williams, Stern, Data East, Sega, Gottlieb and Premier to name a few. Members can help each other diagnose machine issues and of course enjoy the game once it's fixed.


We have established a simple way to contact all of the Iowa Pinball Club Members. This makes it easy for impromptu pinball parties at local bars, arcades, or home gamerooms. Plus it's also a great way to give advanced notice of a pinball party hosted at your own home or venue (Corporations Welcome)!
