The Old School Pinball and Arcade is a creation of a handful of arcade enthusiasts who grew up in the 80’s and 90’s and wanted to share the great arcade experience and games of their childhood.

There are other great places to play games in the Des Moines area including bar-arcades, animatronic robots singing to you while you eat pizza and play ticket games, and other places that have arcade games. However, there is nothing else in Iowa with the fun filled family atmosphere of The Old School.
