Tilt! Retro railroad offers retro pinball car


The Strasburg Rail Road, which bills itself as the “Rail Road to Paradise” has added a less-heavenly attraction to its steam-train rides through the Pennsylvania  countryside  near Lancaster.


Using a dozen vintage pinball machines from an Asbury Park, NJ museum, the  new  ride allows pinball wizards a 45-minute session  on  one of the machines, with an added tilt: besides the usual tricky bangs and bumps of pinball, there’s also the motion of the train, which changes  the odds. The Rail Road is calling it the “Pinball Pendolino” after the tilting high-speed trains of Europe.


The ride has  room for  12 players and 12 spectator guests per  trip. For more information  on  fares and schedules on the Rail Road’s website, click HERE.
