Ten years ago in March, Lyons Classic Pinball opened its doors for business here in Colorado. Fed up with working for other people and the stress that comes along with standard employment, owners Kevin and Carole Carroll decided to break free from the norm and open up their own arcade in the bustling mountain town of Lyons.
Despite its location nearly an hour away from the city, Lyons Classic Pinball still benefits from many national and international visitors every year, some from as far away as Belgium.
In this day and age, it seems that the stigma associated with pinball is that there are higher chances of the damn thing eating your money or the ball getting stuck than you actually having a good time.
With the proper maintenance and pride that the owners and employees put into the establishment, it is no wonder that Lyons has become the destination for those seeking quality pinball and general vintage charm.
The modest interior of the arcade is very appropriate considering the 1.2 square mile town that it calls home. Inside of Lyons Classic Pinball, one will find nearly 40 beautifully maintained and brightly lit pinball machines, ranging from the 1960s to 2013.
The kind people at Lyons Classic Pinball are pleased to offer monthly double elimination tournaments. There is even a pinball league for those looking to take their flipping to the next level.
Pinball is the lost art of the arcade game world. It’s great that Lyons Classic Pinball is keeping the memory of the game alive. If you are looking for a great time and a blast into the past, this is the place to be.
