THE FLIPSIDE has RE-OPENED! We are so excited to safely welcome you back.
We have re‑imagined the Flipside with a handful of tables, each in a private pod of games. You can reserve your exclusive “game pod” from five different arrangements with games on Free-Play for your private use in our “Zero Mingling, Extreme Distancing” re-design.
Each day we offer a variety of seating times . Each pod is designed for six to eight people and is fully sanitized before you arrive. Bring your favorite To-Go meal from one of Loveland's great restaurants or have it delivered to our front door. For safety reasons, no unattended children. Alcohol is not served to pods with minors visiting without their parents.
Buy your non-refundable pod ticket from the game pod rental links below or at the door. One ticket reserves the pod for your whole group. Our staff will confirm that you are well and seat you during the check-in time range listed on your ticket. As you know masks are required by State order if you leave your pod for any reason. Hand sanitizer is available at the door and in your pod. Pod occupants may not mingle with other groups or socialize in the hallway.
We hope that you enjoy this exceptional experience, and we are excited to see you soon!

"We love the Flipside!!! Gary and all the staff are kind wonderful people! All the facilities are squeaky clean and there are bottles of hand sanitizer everywhere. The games are super fun and divided into pods for social distancing. If you want to have a great time, I suggest you try them out."
"We visited on a quiet Sunday night and met Rachel and Kyler who were fantastic. They've made some really smart adjustments to how they operate for COVID. Now, the different games are sorted into pods of maybe 5 or 6 games each. You reserve a pod with your group at an hourly rate (2 hours at a time if I remember right), and then you have freeplay with those games. No coins required. Plus, once you're in your pod, your group can take masks off. They sanitize everything down between groups and take it really seriously. I was impressed. Even though we didn't have a reservation and it was almost close, Kyler let us drop into one of the pods for a cheaper rate. We got a few drinks (they have a surprisingly big menu and a lot of beers on tap!), and had a blast. Rachel was our bartender and took good care of us. Once the other group that was there left, Kyler let us pick the music and continue playing while they cleaned up. It was a fantastic time for a spontaneous decision to pop in. I appreciate the great customer service from Kyler and Rachel!"
"We absolutely love this place, we go on a regular basis. We like all the pinball machines and other games as well. The staff and the owners are great people."
"What a great place. Had our daughters 10th birthday party here and am so glad we did! The owner is very responsive and made sure we had everything we needed. Was a great deal as well!!! Definitely going to be repeat customers! I would highly recommend this place."
"We hosted our 5 year olds birthday party here. It was a huge success. We were able to rent out the location during non-normal business hours. It was super clean, and the staff was incredible. The parents and kids loved it. We will definitely do this again!!!"
"As pinball fanatics, we took our chances and drove 2 hours to get to The Flipside and had a fantastic family fun experience on a Thursday evening into the night. Our Google leads did not disappoint. Reasonably priced entertainment; we spent less than we would have going to a movie theater as a family. We were greated by beautifully maintained pinball machines (smooth playfields, LED lighting, toppers and other upgrades and impressive detail)as well as skeeball, air hockey and arcade games. Oh, and humans, we were greeted by humans as well!The staff was friendly and attentive to our entire family. Enjoyed chatting with one of the owners who was polishing and keeping maintenance on the pins. This place is in a recently renovated building that is a corner gem, (super clean) amongst a revamped, yet quaint and pleasant, downtown area. Free street parking!!! They have a full bar as well as several non alcoholic drinks choices. They offer complimentary snacks such as popcorn pretzels and trail mix. I can't say anything negative about this place; get there and see for yourself."
"We celebrated my son’s ninth birthday and had a very big party. The staff was overly accommodating and sooo very compassionate and kind! The prices can’t be beat and the place was super clean and efficient. They were very personable and sweet to everyone of our guests and did anything they could to help out or make us comfortable! I would highly recommend this for anybody who has children or just wanna have fun with the friends and family. This is a great place to get together for any office party, work party, special event, or just to have fun and support local businesses. I will definitely be going back as much as possible once again thank you to the staff for making this available and possible today. Old-school pinball, Pac-Man, and ski ball, you can’t go wrong not to mention they have a color changing cherry blossom tree in the middle of the place and there are super comfy couches and tables everywhere !"
"A diamond in the rough! With an inviting and comfortable space The Flipside manages to provide an exceptional barcade experience without the premium pricing you would expect. The bar is well stocked, formidably staffed, and has a hand picked selection of local craft beers. The highlight for me was the retinue of meticulously curated and maintained pinball tables. These aren't your typical tables. It's as if a private collector opened their gem-quality selection to the public at more-than-reasonable rates. The amount of love and care that goes into the maintenance, upkeep and customization is fantastic. Throw in the free snacks and the exceptional staff and you have an experience that raises the bar. Well done!"
