Pinballz Arcade in Austin, Texas is a premiere destination for pinball lovers around the world.

The arcade's owner Darren Spohn says that the nostalgia of the arcade experience keeps people coming back for more.

"There's all the other things like the X-Boxes, and things propagate. We always come back to something that has a tactile response to it, something that always challenges you every time you play it," he said.

Spohn started collecting pinball machines as a hobby, and eventually his hobby grew into a business. The arcade now covers 13,000 square feet and contains more than 200 games.
