Pinball wizards will soon have a new place to call home.

The Pinball Hall of Fame is planning to move closer to the Las Vegas Strip.

Clark County officials have approved a permit, which will allow the hall to move into a warehouse with double the current space.

Owner Tim Arnold hopes to attract more Sin City tourists.

He owns about 1,200 pinball machines, including many from the 1950s and '60s.

He says he bought his first for $200 in 1970.

The hall runs as a nonprofit with the extra quarters donated to the Salvation Army.
