If you have crazy flipper fingers and enjoy shooting for a high score, then this new spot in Patchogue should be worth a visit. 
Pinball Long Island, a 5,000-square-foot game emporium at 48 West Main St., is slated to open Saturday, March 18.  
Amid the sounds of music, bumpers and bells, players at Pinball Long Island can test their skills on a wide-ranging collection of around 100 pinball machines that have been sourced from all over the country, from as far away as California. 
In fact, Pinball Long Island owner Josh Guskin says players won’t find a bigger selection in the area. 
“We have more pinball machines in one location than anywhere in the state,” Guskin said. 
Many of the games at Pinball Long Island are vintage, originating from as early as the 1960s, but there are also several modern-era high-tech machines. Manufacturers represented here will be quite familiar to veteran pinball aficionados, including Gottlieb, Williams, Bally, Stern and Jersey Jack. 
Most of the game titles at the new Patchogue venue are also well known to pinball enthusiasts, including Cross Town, Gorgar, the first talking pinball machine, and Surf Champ, a machine Guskin acquired from the former Montauk estate of Andy Warhol. Several of the popular machines are based on TV shows, movie franchises and rock bands, like Kiss, Indiana Jones and Addams Family, the number-one-selling pinball machine of all time. 
The memorabilia and art on the walls of Pinball Long Island are coordinated with the machines, with comic books above games like Spiderman and Batman; guitars hanging above the music and rock-themed games like Metallica; and old movie posters above the games like Creature from the Black Lagoon. 
Guskin is no stranger to the business. The native Long Islander has been collecting, restoring and selling arcade games for more than 20 years. He’s even open to buying more games from people who visit Pinball Long Island, especially those machines that are currently collecting dust in basements. 
Pinball Long Island will be open most days from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m., with some extended hours on weekends. The new Patchogue pinball parlor, which will be hosting occasional pinball tournaments, will also be available for private parties, company team building and other events. 
Patrons won’t need to bring quarters or fumble with coin slots. The introductory day-long unlimited rate to play at Pinball Long Island is $20, and $10 for children 10 and under. 
It’s been Guskin’s long-time dream to open a pinball arcade and he says the new place provides family-friendly entertainment that’s great fun for all ages. 
While he explored several other communities to locate the business, Guskin says he is pleased with the spot he chose. 
“Patchogue is a perfect location for Pinball Long Island, with all of its restaurants, entertainment and shops,” Guskin said. “I know we will be a popular venue for people visiting the area.”
