A rare steam train excursion trip passing through Blue Island Illinois in mid-September 2018 was a good excuse to revisit one of my favorite places to play pinball machines.
The Rock Island Public House at 13328 Olde Western Ave. in Blue Island is right next to the Rock Island commuter train line on which the steam excursion was running.
I watched the impressive steam train pass through town and then played some great pinball machines.
Rock Island Public House features seven well-maintained pinball machines.
- Elvira and the Party Monsters, Bally
- Kiss, Stern
- Mata Hari, Bally
- Pirates of the Caribbean, Stern
- Playboy, Stern
- South Park, Sega
- Star Wars Episode 1, Williams
They were all clean, worked well and had a decent sound volume.
This location has great atmosphere and decor. I look forward to going back soon.
