The RFT's pick for the best place to play pinball in St. Louis could be yours for a cool quarter-million dollars.

An ad posted on Craigslist Wednesday seeks to sell four-year-old Orbit Pinball Lounge (7401 Hazel Avenue, Maplewoood; 314-769-9954) for $220,000. That doesn't include the building, but does include "all equipment, games and assets" — and a "successful turn key business" that has made money in every year of operation.

"Sales and profits have continued to increase every year to date," the ad claims. "Reason for sale: current owner looking to start a new project," the ad continues.

Owner Michael Stivers did not respond to a phone message seeking comment yesterday. An email sent to the ad posting also did not garner a reply.

Stivers opened Orbit in May 2012, offering pinball games, skee-ball, leather couches and a full bar. All that could be yours; see the Craigslist ad for more detail.
