June 2021 Visit to Next Level Pinball Museum

I had an opportunity to visit the Next Level Pinball Museum this weekend in Hillsboro, Oregon, about 20 minutes West of Portland.  I've been here before, although this was my first visit after they completed their building expansion.  If you are interested at all in pinball, this is definitely a stop to work into any schedule that brings you into the PNW.  This is not an exhaustive picture catalog of all the machines they have there, although it will certainly give you a good idea of what to expect.  I also didn't include the additional arcade, racing, driving, and shooter cabinets.

I could go on about the content, the atmosphere, and how it makes me feel like I'm right back in the 80s arcades of my youth, but I'll let the pictures speak for themselves:

Here's the row of some of the latest Stern tables.  You can also see a small sampling of the various collector related items that cover the walls inside:

Williams machines from the 80s:

Rounding the corner leads into Gottlieb and Data East tables from the same era, and more of the lunchbox and other collectables up on the walls:

Quite a few early 80s solid state machines and Star Wars figure collection:

...that just keeps going:

On the other side of the wall, you'll start to find tables from the 90s:

...And the other side of that same isle.  How many games have you seen that you want to play so far?

American Pinball (Minus Octoberfest) tables are there, including Hot Wheels, GOTY 2020:

And some really rare tables, too:

And lots of Stern tables from the early 2000s:

...lots:

Did I say lots?  I really mean LOTS:

Seriously:

 There's quite a few more that I didn't include, mostly because I am trying to leave out pictures that had other people in the shot where I could.  Needless to say, it's worth the trip and I'm already looking forward to my next visit!
