Show Tickets

The 2023 Ann Arbor VFW Pinball Show has yet to be announced. Stay tuned! Remember we are the LARGEST PINBALL SHOW IN THE WORLD with over 500+ working restored pingames for you to play!!
TICKET RESERVATIONS for the Ann Arbor pinball museum’s pinball 2023 show does require an advanced ticket reservation before the show. (Depending on the number of reservations made, there may or may not be tickets at the door.) This ensures that we have workable attendance numbers, and that we know ahead exactly what those numbers are. This way the show won’t be too crowded. We want a nice people-to-game ratio as this ensures a good time for all. Hence each and every person attending does need a ticket reservation in order to attend, and preferably in advance of the show. This web page will allow you to get an advance ticket reservation using Paypal. Remember in prior years we have sold out several weeks in advance, so don’t hesitate to get your show ticket reservation. At the door, the remainder of your ticket price must be paid in cash.

Please print and save your paypal receipt!
Though not absolutely necessary, it helps the check in process at the door. It is ideal to show your receipt at the door and pay your remainder ticket price, in order to get a wristband for the show. Have photo ID with you too (this prevents the same receipt being re-used by multiple people.) If you loose your Paypal receipt that’s OK too, it just makes check-in a bit longer.

If you are buying a ticket reservation for someone else, please indicate their name in the Paypal in the “Add special instructions” section of the Paypal order.

Ticket reservation sales are FINAL (not refundable). Please make sure you purchase the *correct* day (Saturday or Sunday or Tourney Friday).
