TALLAHASSEE, Fla.(WTXL) — With the economic uncertainties from the coronavirus, we here at ABC 27 are shining a light on businesses that are doing their part to help out the community while keeping their business open.

A local arcade is taking your safety seriously, and says, "We're Open, Tallahassee!"

Co-owners Adam Kessell and Rob McDole opened Flippin' Great Pinball in 2016 in Railroad Square.

When they were able to re-open, they made several changes, including restricting the amount of people they have inside their game room at one time.

They've also adopted a reservation policy, where you can go online and reserve a one-hour slot for you and at least one other person to have the whole arcade to yourselves.

"So no one else comes in during that time, and in between each reservation we keep a 30 minute window where we sanitize every single game, so clean each game before the next party comes in, so that way there's no risk of anything carrying over," said Adam Kessell, co-owner of Flippin' Great Pinball.

The cost for one hour of play is $7.99 per person, with a minimum of two people in your party, and a max of 9 people.

Go to Flippin' Great Pinball's website or Facebook page to see available slots.
