is starting to become a regular event for me.
Once again the Pinball Wizard convention hit
town and it was as enjoyable as ever
As in previous years, the latest new Stern
creation was Ripley's Believe It or Not. As in
other years I stayed away from Ripley's, as the
newest pin always has the longest lines. Who
want to wait on line with so many other good
titles ready to play? For this reason I got some
good time in on Simpson's Pinball Party (last
years hot pin) as well as some time on Apollo
13, which until this day I had never played.
After doing some rounds with Apollo, I think
that Ill be looking for one of these for my own.
Games I wanted to play that were missing from
this years line up were Galaxy, but other then
that, the room was filled with great pins to
play. Bonsai Run was there as well, and I spent
some time on that as well. Another really cool
Outside the weather was great and the parking
lot was filled with the normal swap meet. Lots
of used equipment and parts, same as every year.
I neglected to take pictures outside again this
year, but I'm sure the 70 other pictures will
make up for it.
Back inside there was the compilations and
seminars. As well as venders selling mods, parts
and other game room accessories. Al Warner did
his seminar this year on pinball customizing
showing off his tricked out Twilight Zone. I
have never wanted a TZ till I say Al's. Some
people say that Pinball mods are just plain
wrong, but all the color that is added to game
like TZ when you fill the gumball machine with
gumballs, or add a light or two to a playfield
toy really rock out an already good game. Enjoy
