Does my Skee-Ball® Premium require assembly?
Yes, but it is very minimal! Your Skee-Ball® Premium will arrive at your house in two boxes, on one pallet. All you have to do is connect the two pieces, and you’re ready to Keep the Good Times Rollin’™!
Before you assemble or move your Skee-Ball® Premium, find a friend. The sections should be lifted by two people. Plus, life is more fulfilling with a friend.
How big are the boxes my Skee-Ball® will arrive in? How big is each piece once unboxed?
Your Skee-Ball® will arrive in two boxes on one pallet. One box includes the head and the playfield of the game, and the other contains the ramp.
For Skee-Ball® Premium, the head box is 67”L x 26”W x 33”H and weighs approximately 158 lbs. The ramp box is 81”L x 27”W x 20”H and weighs approximately 123 lbs. Together with the pallet, they measure 84”L x 32”W x 65”H and weighs approximately 405 lbs with additional packaging materials.
Once out of the box and fully assembled, the Skee-Ball® Premium will measure 24” W x 108” L x 66” H and weigh approximately 245 lbs.
With official Skee-Ball® sounds and the same commercial-quality construction, the Skee-Ball Premium brings home an American classic - normally found in the arcade, now specially scaled for home use and years of memories to come.
Handcrafted and Built in the USA
Made with the same quality and attention to detail as the original 1908 arcade models (built using the same process)! Manufactured in the heart of America.
Just set up the game, the packaging was super easy, instructions are hilarious and we can't stop playing!
Skee-Ball branded love it in my basement! Multi player which is great for family/freinds. Has a nice look to the game. 5/5
Where does my Skee-Ball® Premium come from?
Skee-Ball® Premium arcade cabinets are made and shipped from good ol' Pulaski, Wisconsin (USA), just outside of Green Bay - home of the Pulaski Polka Days, Skee-Ball®, and of course, the Green Bay Packers. Your Premium is handmade, in house, with the same quality and attention to detail as any original Skee-Ball® alley roller you'd find in the arcade.
I love Skee-Ball® - is this the real deal?
This is it. In 1908, Joseph Fourestier Simpson of Vineland, N.J. applied for a patent around a new game idea that had a “skee-jump” mechanism on an alley to launch a ball into targets that had a built in automatic scoring mechanism - the foundation of the Skee-Ball® we have all come to know and love.
Fast forward more than a century, Skee-Ball® has become more than an icon and a brand, it's become a household name, one that sparks joy related to all the happy memories it evokes. We love what we do, and we love to play more - so if you're thinking about adding a Skee-Ball® to your home arcade, basement, man cave, rec room, or anywhere people gather together at home, consider a Skee-Ball® Deluxe, Skee-Ball® Premium, Skee-Ball® 1908, Skee- Ball® Classic, or Skee-Ball® Glow.
Anything else is just an imitation of The Original Alley!
Is there a multi-player option?
Skee-Ball® Premium can be played by up to 6 players at a time.
Take your turn rolling (9) 2.75" woodgrain balls at the targets in classic Skee-Ball® style or try to be as fast as you can for the highest score in 30 seconds if you're feeling the need for speed.
What are the game modes?
Classic: Each player rolls 9 balls up the ramp into the targets
Three-Ball: A twist on Classic, each player rolls 3 frames of 3 balls each
Speed: Players roll balls as fast as they can for 30 seconds
Countdown: Players roll 3 balls at a time to countdown from 310 to exactly zero
Light ‘em up: Players roll 3 balls at a time, aiming to hit each target once
Blackjack: Each player is dealt a random card. Roll one ball at a time to reach exactly twenty-one
I want the arcade experience - the sounds, the play, everything - will this give it to me?
Yes! Save for the physical footprint, this includes the original Skee-Ball® arcade sounds, the same game play, and the same hours of fun and years of memories made.
How do I start playing?
Power on your Skee-Ball® Premium by starting your game from the button panel, where you can change the volume, choose between 1-6 players and select your game mode. Game on!

Are you ready to play?

The sounds and lights ignite the childlike excitement in all of us and it definitely serves as the go to for stress relief! Thank you for this product!
Love my Skee-Ball Premium!! Great fun for family and friends. Perfect addition to my game room!
For the positives, our family really enjoys playing and it's been a fun addition to our game room. The different game modes are a cool way to mix things up a bit. If this review were based solely on fun, then it would get 5 stars. Setup was also super easy and it looks great sitting in the room.
There are some disappointments to call out. The electronics are archaic. The machine has to "load" when you turn it on and it's really slow to boot up. It also has no memory. So when you turn it off, the one high score it keeps track of (classic mode) is gone. Faster boot up and storage of multiple high scores would be nice. We've already had one scoring sensor break. I had to take the back of the machine apart and glue it back on. No issues since then. Lots of blank rolls where the ball will go through a hole but the score won't record. The balls themselves are surprisingly light, so it's pretty common for a ball to bounce along the top of the rings and, instead of falling through a hole, shoot right back down the alley at you. A little annoying.
All in all, it's fine and I'd probably purchase anyways knowing what I know now. But I was expecting a bit more for the price.
Truly gives the feel of the real arcade version in smaller footprint. Scoreboard and additional game options give more variety. Took 4 people to carry the two large boxes down the stairs. Super easy to assemble. Customer service through Skee ball is outstanding. I Wouldn’t change anything about this game. The Arcade Premium is perfect for an at home version! We have been having lots of fun playing!
The positives, easy to use, fun lighting effects, digital display, and easy to assemble.
Negatives, once assembled there was a triangle gap at the joint (eye sore), seems lower then usual, balls get stuck at bottom and you have to manually move them (annoying on 30 unlimited), there are sharp edges on the underside of the ball tray, the balls have too much speed when entering ball tray (finger buster).
Suggested upgrades, angle the ball track to one of the sides and have the balls bounce off and then into the tray., to slow them down and this way they wont get jammed. Add deflectors to stagger the balls when exitting the play filed and entering the underneath track. Its hard to write it out, i can drawbit if you would like.
