Arcade-goers say goodbye to The Pinball Wizard on Sunday in Pelham

Sarah St. John, owner of the Pinball Wizard arcade in Pelham, shows off her pinball prowess on one of her favorite machines, a “Medieval Madness” game, circa 1997. 

The place, however, once alive with glowing pinball machines, videogames and pool tables, is now silent and dim. Foot traffic is slowing, St. John said, and she already misses the mayhem of hundreds of games in full swing.
