Can Can Wonderland opened January 12th in St Paul, MN.  They have got old pinball machines and old style arcade games from the 1960s/1970s and a few newer machines.

Most of the pinball machines were working. A few were not. The non working machines had signs stating "out of service check back soon". None of the old style arcade games were working. They also had a couple mutoscope film machines and an old vibrating foot massager.

So 12 working pinball machines. Most were $.50. A few were $.25 for the opening special.


They were really busy when I was there today.  Pinball is just a small part of whats there.  They also have an 18 hole miniature golf course, a maze, and lots of other stuff.

The one time I went there, the change machine was out of order. Of all the machines to go out of order. So I only got to play one game, and that was Bally's Rapid Fire. I can see why that game & Hyperball didn't get more made.


CCW's concept is great. I hope they keep on the up & up about pinball, having the machines work properly, not charging too much(EM games should top out at .25) and having as many amusment devices as room allows. 


Also, they need to serve name brand cola. Their homemade cola is awful.

Can Can has added some vintage arcade machines.  They've had vintage pinball machines since they opened in Jan. 2017 but the arcades are new (Aug. 2018).
