Pinball arcade opens in Bicknell Square

Pop Bumpers Pinball opened during last weekend’s snowstorm at 407 Bridge St. in Bicknell Square with 10 vintage pinball machines. “We still had people coming in despite the snow,” owner Liz Moore, who lives in North Weymouth, said in an interview. “We have pinball diehards coming to check us out, but we also have lots of families.” She said most of the children grew up with video games and have never seen a pinball machine, but “once you show them how to play, they’re hooked.” Moore said she and her husband, Scott, had run a bowling alley in Needham before the economic downturn forced them to close, and she wanted to get into a similar business. Pinball was the natural choice, she said, since both her father and husband restored the machines. “Our family has always had a passion for pinball,” she said.
