Ryan Zlomek has 17 pinball machines. Some are in his basement, some are in his garage. One is in the classroom where he teaches. Most, though, are in his pinball arcade.
Zlomek is the owner of Syracuse PINheads, one of the area’s rare vintage pinball arcade. It’s small — eight games — but Zlomek hopes to continue to add. The arcade is in Cloud City Comics in Shoppingtown Mall. By having it there, Zlomek hopes to reach a new generation of kids who could become pinball wizards.
