ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Andy Kline is very passionate about collecting two things.

Vintage pinball and arcade games — but he's also passionate about the animals at his Odessa Wildlife Rescue and Sanctuary.

“My first passion is animals over people,” laughs Kline.

So he’s now using his huge collection of games to help his collection of animals.

The Pinball Arcade Museum, a fun-packed nonprofit in St. Pete’s growing Grand Central District, opens on Thursday, August 1.

It’s located at 2313 Central Ave. St Pete.

It will be open Tuesday through Sunday.

For $12, guests can play 60 games all day, from a Dirty Harry pinball machine to ‘80s classic like Donkey Kong and Ms. Pac-Man.

All proceeds will benefit Kline’s animal rescue efforts.

Kids will love this retro fun zone. But so will grownups, who can bring in beverages from neighboring bars.
