Virtual Tour – Portal Pinball Arcade
We published a virtual tour for Portal Pinball in April 2018, which has attracted an incredible 86,000+ visitor views.
The arcade has grown since then, adding new pinball tables and arcade games. The owner was interested in publishing an updated virtual tour to showcase the latest additions. We decided to shoot the outdoor photography in the morning and the indoor photo spheres after sunset. A darkened arcade is a unique experience and the virtual tour should reflect the best possible visuals. The resulting panorama imagery is amazing!
We created two distinct virtual tours: one published on Google and then a custom virtual tour hosted on our own server. The image on the right is an outdoor “tiny planet” view of the storefront.
The custom virtual tour includes media elements, such as: audio, video, information hot-spots, analytics, links to external sites, and more! Visitors can also step back in time and explore Portal Pinball as it was in 2018.
The virtual tours begin in the parking lot, into the entrance, and then throughout the interior to see (and hear!) all the pinball tables and arcade machines.
A new custom logo was created and inserted into each indoor photo sphere for an official branded look.

Portal Pinball Arcade
Publishing an updated virtual tour on Google resets the visitor stats on the business listing, however we continue to track cumulative visitor traffic to give clients uninterrupted visibility.
The new virtual tour at Portal Pinball was published on April 19th and within seven days has already attracted over 4,700+ visitor views.
Could your business use an additional 670+ views per day?

The top feature added to the Portal Pinball virtual tour is the custom background soundtrack. An arcade MUST sound like an arcade!
Two videos are added that will play over the wall mounted monitors when a visitor moves into the closest photo sphere.
