Private Events

What would be better than having your own private arcade party?

Sparks Pinball Museum offers a unique experience for your event with nearly 50 pinball machines on free play for your guests.  Our collection of pinball machines is one of the largest public collections in the Midwest!  Sparks arcade showcases pinball machines manufactured by Williams and Bally – which were once the premier manufacture of pinball.  We have your guest’s favorite titles such as Addams Family, Terminator 2, Medieval Madness, and Twilight Zone.   Sparks is located in a large open room and the machines line the perimeter of the room with six pool tables and a long seating bar that runs along the middle of the room.  We also offer an on sight repairman at your event to address any issues that may arise on these highly mechanical vintage machines.  Best of all, the entire venue is roped off and private to your guests. 


Since Sparks is located inside the Premier Entertainment Complex, we offer a wide arrange of menu items to your guests.  Hot Tamales restaurant, which is also located inside the complex, offers a wide range of delicious Mexican and Italian dishes.  For more causal events, the Premier Entertainment Complex offers affordable pizzas and various causal menu items.  Since the venue has a full kitchen, special menu requests can be accommodated for catering for your event.  There is also a full bar located inside the pinball room as well.  We will provide the tables, seats, table covers and plastic silverware for your event, if needed.  


For large parties up to 200 guests, we offer the neighboring Diesel Concert Lounge with your own private bar and bartender.  This venue is located next to Sparks and is so large it once housed three movie theaters!   Diesel offers a private area for your guests to eat and drink away from the bustle of the pinball machines.    The venue also has a large stage for your event and a sound system where you can pipe in your own tunes of choice.  If you want to bring in your own live musical entertainment, Diesel can accommodate your needs.
