Modern Pinball NYC

With pinball machines from the 70s to today, this is the best rainy day activity in New York.
Before Candy Crush, Nintendo, Atari, or Pac Man, there was pinball. Modern Pinball NYC is a throwback the 70s, when trying to break the high score would make you miss your dinner curfew. With some new games (The Walking Dead) and some classics (Xenon, Kiss), you'll likely miss your dinner reservations. My favorite is Tommy, a tribute to The Who's Pinball Wizard. Also check out their museum.
