    Hi everyone. I am getting a 3 day monorail pass next week and always wanted to visit the Pinball Hall of Fame.

    What is the best stop to get there? Don't mind walking within reason.

    Thanks!

    Chris

    a very long walk to the phof but you could take the monorail to mgm and go out the main valet entrance and cross tropicana and catch the bus right between hooters and the tropicana hotel.
    I think it is about 2 miles down tropicana and well worth the trip.

    they have a much smaller version of the phof at the riviera hotel also.

    Really enjoyed the pinball HOF, but don't walk it. Way too far. The bus or cab fare from MGM is money well spent

    Google maps shows it as a 2.1 mile walk from the closest monorail stop (MGM Grand), which they clock at 45 minutes. (and, of course, you have to walk it back too).

    If you don't want to take a cab or bus but find that's too far to walk, you could go to the Pinball HOF annex at the Riviera, which is only about ten minute walk from either the Convention Center or Las Vegas Hilton monorail stops. You'd have about 15 games to choose from, opposed to the 100+ at the main showcase.
