Day 799 Pop Bumper Pinball Arcade in Weymouth MA

Comments Off

Pop Bumpers is a  Pinball Venue for Parties, Leagues, Tournaments and Open Play located on  Route 3A in North Weymouth.  It is a great place for family fun!

If you are  for something different to do? They  have  10 old school   pinball machines, and no video games. Capture the nostalgia that harkens back to Nantasket beach’s  Paragon Park . Come for open play times, leagues, tournaments, or hold a party here. No quarters needed, all of the  games are set to free play. Pay one entrance fee at the door and you’re all set!

Join a League! Have fun!
Pinball leagues are for anyone. Most leagues are individually based, meaning you will play against other people on the same games.  Your score will be charted week to week, and at the end of the season, the best scoring people will play each other to find the winners!  League nights are typically 2 to 3 hours long.

Pinball Tournaments
Pinball tournaments are fun and friendly!
They are scored similarly to mini-golf, the lowest score wins! Each game has a set score that the players are trying to reach. The number of balls it takes you to get to the set score becomes your score! For example, if the set score for a pinball machine is 3500. and it takes you two turns to get there, your score for that game would be 2.

 

Birthday Parties 

The  party packages are for young and old alike! Bring your cake, and food with you, and enjoy playing pinball the whole time!

Parties run for 2 hours, and include free play on all pinball machines.  Our Party Venue can accommodate up to 50 people. All can play!

Party Times:

Saturdays: 11am-1pm 1:30pm – 3:30pm 4pm – 6pm

Sundays: 1:30pm – 3:30pm 4pm – 6pm

$250.00 for 2 Hours
