Tesla Coil Day at Quarterworld Arcade Portland! | Shows at 4PM & 9PM, All Ages, Pinball, Full Bar

From Our Sponsors

Tesla Coil Shows

More info: quarterworldarcade.com

QuarterWorld is a retro pinball museum, gaming arcade, and bar serving pizza, buns, and carnival inspired delights. With over 35 different pinball games and 60 classic and new arcade games there is something for everyone! Split up into 2 sides, Q Lab and Q Lounge, you can bring the whole family to have fun.

Tessi is their musical Tesla Coil. Created specifically for QuarterWorld in 2015 by Zeusaphone, LLC in Chicago. Tessi is unlike your everyday Tesla coil. Normal Tesla coils use a spark gap to create the electrical bolts and sounds that you hear. Tessi uses solid state technology which allows us to control the frequency and pulse rate of the electoral bolts giving us the ability to create music. Think of the sound track to old 8-bit video games and that is kind of what Tessi sounds like. Shows are Sundays & Tuesdays at 4 p.m. & 9 p.m.

Tessi is enclosed in a Faraday cage. A Faraday cage is a grounded metal screen surrounding Tessi to exclude electrostatic and electromagnetic influences. In other word, it keeps the bolts of electricity from shooting outside of the cage.

Coming in at around 90 decibels, Tessi is loud! She is comparable to a Monster Truck show as far as how loud she is. QuarterWorld does provide ear plugs at both bars and the admission booth. Ear muff & ear plug protection available upon request. Not required, but recommended!

QuarterWorld has a a full bar and allow minors and adults in the same area. There is Trivia on multiple screens to entertain the brain, that played from people smartphones. Games take actual quarters, dollar bills and can be credited from using our Pay-range app connections on each machine. We have a photo booth, large new games and restored old school games.
