Pinball enthusiasts, unite!

… at a safe distance, of course.

From the hive-mind that brought you Trounce Alley’s famed Quazar’s Arcade comes a new spot to get your gaming on, with a chance to play premium pinball machines and be a part of a very exclusive club.

The Powerhouse Pinball Club looks to host weekly member-only drop-ins in their beautiful heritage building in downtown Victoria, for new gamers and seasoned veterans alike to experience pinball at its finest – on machines safely spaced 6 feet apart.

The all new club will feature favourites such as the 2019 Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory from Jersey Jack Pinball and Alice Cooper’s Nightmare Castle from Spooky Pinball, and they even have a Star Trek TNG and a Tales from the Crypt.

The Club will officially launch on Saturday, September 19th and drop-ins will take place every Saturday between 1 p.m. and 9 p.m.

One year memberships can be bought online for only $10, and members will be given a membership card to allow them future entry to club events.

The pinball machines run on tokens that can be purchased with cash, debit or credit cards from a dedicated machine and cost 50 cents a piece – the pinball machines cost 2-3 tokens to play.

If you’re looking to try out Powerhouse for yourself, we’ve partnered with them for an epic giveaway of 40 pinball tokens PLUS a limited edition Lava Foil variant of a screen printed poster by pinball artist Dirty Donny.

To keep everyone safe, each pinball machine will have a dedicated disinfectant station, and masks are mandatory during member-only drop-ins.

Drop-in sessions will also be capped at 30 people.
