Founded in early 2011, The PINBALL ASYLUM began as a place for local Florida friends to hang out, play, restore and repair pinball machines. Since then we have grown into a fully sanctioned IFPA (International Flipper Pinball Association) tournament venue. In 2016 we created the monthly Asylum Inmates Pinball League, and in 2020 we were chosen as hosts for IFPA17, The World Pinball Championships.
The PINBALL ASYLUM‘s stated mission is to raise awareness about pinball in general, and keep the fun, the art and the sport of pinball a vital part of our popular culture.
Giving people access to games they might not otherwise not have a chance to play is another goal of The PINBALL ASYLUM. We also serve as place to park games for those that are out of space, or just want a change of lineup.
The PINBALL ASYLUM is brought to you by your hosts, and Asylum Board of Directors— David, Matt B., Matt M., Mike, Jeff, Scott, Eric and Todd.
