13th Annual Pinball Life Open House

This will be a two day event with a different format each day.

Thursday, October 12th from 10am-4pm
Free admission
Over 30 games on free play
Free non-alcoholic beverages

If you are more about having access to the machines and parts and don't like crowds, this is probably the day for you to attend. We expect this to be a low key, mellow day.

Friday, October 13th from noon-6pm
This is the day we bring the party!
This will be a charity event with all entry fees being donated to The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation
Admission $15

Official Total Nuclear Annihilation release party!
Over 30 games on free play
Free Pinball Olympic events
Limited free alcoholic beverages (3 drink maximum)

We are issuing entry tickets simply to control the amount of people who attend, as over-crowding has been a concern for many who have attended in the past.
