  • Pinball Hall of Fame

    Would anyone else be up for a visit to the Pinball Hall of Fame? http://www.pinballmuseum.org/

    I know I am not the only pinnerd here!

    well, from what I hear they will have The Adams Family and Appolo 13 (those fuckers better have all the balls) so I'm already planning a trip :)
    If I had a nickle for every time someone offered me ten cents to keep my two cents to myself... I would be a rich man.

          Out of range how? Tre and I will most likely rent another stupid SUV, you know you can catch a ride with us!

          I'm really excited myself. I really hope they have a Big Bang Bar! Or a Kingpin!

            Dr. Who, Pinbot, or Black Knight 2000. Mmmm, tasty spherical goodness.

                Duh, I'm down ;)

                I might talk with the owners, as I know them to see if we get a large enough group if they'll give us a group discount, or maybe if you have a badge, you get something, etc.

                    Addams Family Pinball is definitely my favorite pinball machine. I'm down for going.

                      Here's a list of the games they have so far

                      I was thrilled to see Safecracker on the list!

                        They have a Lethal Weapon 3 machine. My brother and I played one of those non-stop back in the day. I'm down for going.

                          They have a ton of good shit there. Was just there with a friend who insisted i go check it out. (we used to play way back, half a lifetime ago)

                          The proprieter of the place suggested catching a cab there. (Suppose it wouldn't be that expensive if it was shared) but for those of you with Vehicles it should be simple enough to get there.

                          You can take a few different routs to get to the place if you have a car.

                          Taking Desert Inn (next main streen south of teh Riv) left (or east) all the way down to Pecos (10-15 minute ride, depending on traffic) then hang a right (south) and take that down to Tropicana (next main street after Flamingo) it's right there.

                          It's in the mini mall with the cheap theatres (I think it says Tropicana theaters, and on one of those signs that tells what stores are in teh area it says 'Cinema') which is on the right before the light at Trop and Pecos (if your coming down Pecos like I listed above)

                          Guess at worst you can mapquest it. Definatly is worth the time. They even have some old video games there and any place that has Tempest and Papergoy fully functional in it, besides a load of awesome pinball.. well has my vote

                          Especially in vegas, where the word 'arcade' is a joke (yeah, i dont like gameworks much either :) )
