Yes, it's super vintage hasn't really changed in 15-20 years, The pinballs are always out of order though....I don't think they have a tech anymore.

I heard the pins were all gone?

The only place in Welland that I know of is Boston Pizza, They use to have one at The Park bar but not sure it's still there (it's a ruff bar though) Port Colborne has 3 (check the list) that pretty close to Welland or go to the falls.

Cheers

It's been a while but I updated the list. I checked 80% of the locations.
Happy flipping :)

Can confirm NBA in Welland. It's beat to hell but it plays clean, flippers are relatively good. It looks really rough looking though. It's a very satisfying pin / shooter (the basketball hoop shot is insane!)

I'm spending the next week with family in Vineland. Is Joe Dog's even open anymore?? Any other options nearby (i.e. Grimsby, Beamsville, Jordan)?

As of 2018, a few more pinballs in the region have been lost:

-Honest Lawyer, St. Catharines (went out of business)
-Parkway Lanes, St. Catharines has closed down for renovations since June 2018. I'm unsure of what will be available when the place reopens in September.
-Hooligan's Sports Bar, Niagara Falls no longer has a pinball there.
-Adventure City on Clifton Hill, Niagara Falls has both pinballs removed.
-The Geekery, Niagara Falls (went out of business)
