What's the WORST thing about having a pinball addiction? No doubt, it's the cost per game! How many times have you put those three quarters in the machine, only to have that little silver ball go right down the chute without a single flipper contact? Infuriating!
If this is a problem for you, or if you just want to get together with all of the other Pinball Wizards in the Denver area, you NEED to get over to the Rocky Mtn. Pinball Showdown NOW!!! Over 125 machines are set to free play all day, from now until Sunday at 5PM. This is some serious game time...they are open until midnight tonight before they reopen tomorrow at 9am.
Obviously, there is some major pinball going on, but there are also contests, tournaments, swag opportunities, a car show, and chances to meet some famous Pinball Wizards. My hubs and oldest are there now getting their pinball binge on!
This is the perfect opportunity to bond with your kids over a childhood pastime. It is the perfect date, and the perfect guys' outing. My hubs is beside himself with the prospect of REALLY introducing my almost 13yo to the world of REAL, LIVE pinball...not some video game simulation!
Admission is $25 one-day adult pass; $15 one-day kid pass (7-12 years); kids 6 and under free. The show is located at the Sheraton Hotel Denver Tech Center, 7007 South Clinton Street, Greenwood Village, CO 80112. Doors are open 11 a.m. to midnight Friday, April 11; 9 a.m. to midnight, Saturday, April 12; and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, April 13.
Listen, I am no pinball expert. I am, however, no stranger to the game...the hubs dragged me on pinball dates too many times to count when we were in HS and college!
