About

Pinball Map is a user-powered map. To help maintain it, create an account and add and remove machines and submit new locations. You can also add machine comments, edit location info, and add high scores.

The data is managed by over 100 administrators and thousands of active users.

Pinball Map is not monetized and the code is open source.

You can contact us, and you also might find wisdom in the FAQ.

API

Not only is the Pinball Map website and app open source, but there is also an API. With it, you can pull down map data and use it on your cool app.

Stern Pinball uses our data for their machine locator. Our API is also used by Matchplay Events and Pindigo and Scorbit and Kineticist and many others!

If you use the data, provide attribution!

Regional Maps

If the big map isn’t cutting it for you, you can search for machines in one select area. Please pick a "regional" map below. Regions are predefined geographical areas - they can be a city, county, state, or even a country - that an administrator and the local users created (a long time ago!). Each regional map is curated by a local administrator, often with the support of a league.
