I started in the pinball hobby in 1979 at the age of 9. At the time I enjoyed playing pinball games like Flash and Firepower. I saved enough money to buy my first game in 1985, a Stern Dracula pinball machine which I repaired and sold. This started my passion for buying more games to repair and sell.
In 1987 I was employed as a pinball and video game technician at Circus Pizza at Har Mar Mall. This was my dream job. In 1990 I was hired by Dahlco Music to be their lead pinball technician. I left Dahlco in 1994 to open Pinball Plus on Como Avenue in St Paul. This was my location for 8 years. Then I moved to a larger facility in South St Paul. In July of 2012 I closed the retail store due to a scarcity of machines, and to focus more on restorations, customizations and repairs.
I now occasionally sell pinball machines but on a much smaller level. If you're looking for a specific game please send me an email. I have a great reputation with 36 years of experience and countless repeat customers. Whether it’s a pinball sale, repair, restoration, or customization you can be sure Pinball Plus will be there for everything you need. Thank you for visiting our site. -John M Ross
