Pinballz Arcade
Original – 8940 Research Blvd., Suite 100 Austin, TX 78758
Lake Creek – 13729 Research Blvd., Austin, TX 78750
Kingdom – 15201 S IH 35, Buda, TX 78610

Pinthouse Pizza
4729 Burnet Rd, Austin, TX 78756
It is certainly more of a pizza and beer spot, but they do have a corner of old school games to keep the kids entertained.

Ski Shores
2905 Pearce Rd, Austin, TX 78730
Part cafe, part lake hangout, Ski Shores also has a really fun little game room.

–> One more idea: While we cannot be sure that every single bowling alley in the area has arcade games, it’s safe to bet that most do.
