    I’m not sure this has been posted yet, but there are four boxes from Stern labeld Jurassic park. I am a volunteer setting up for replay FX and pinburgh. I’ll let you know as soon as they open the boxes

    BEST (safe) gluten free restaurant to eat at?

    Not sure I even know what that means. I'll ask a friend that has diet issues. He will help you out.

    #604 5 months ago

    Thanks

    Wife is a Celiac so needs a place that does not just "say" gluten free, but actually makes sure they serve gluten free.

    In short, gluten slowly kills her so it is not just one of these healthy diet fads for her.

    confirmed as 1 Premium and 5 Pros already there!!!!

    My wife has celiac’s, and our other friend has an intolerance, so we are always conscious of this.

    Condado Tacos and Emporio were both excellent at labeling, and we’ve eaten there multiple times.

    Burgatory (multiple locations, but one across the way by the stadiums) is also excellent at labeling what is safe, plus they do a gluten-free bun.

    At Ten Penny (a few years ago now), their labeling wasn’t very good, and my friend indicated that he needed to avoid gluten. They literally put his meal on a bed of bread, so we haven’t been back there since.

    My wife loves the FindMeGlutenFree app for traveling, so we recommend that as well if the above isn’t to your liking.

    Can't wait to try these! It's good to take a break from tons of pinball in the tournament so that you can play some pinball (not in tournament).

    I was hoping Condao was safe!

    We use findmeglutnefree all the time, but always great hearing from a local in the know.

    Curious is you/your wife have tried Lidia's or Gaucho?
    Both menus show good labeling on line but never sure

    Lidia’s is pretty good. During the week they have/had (been a couple years) an unlimited trio for lunch that I have had a few times for $16 or so.

    So what happens if I’m on stage in the finals with Elwin, we’ve been back and forth all day, and the last game for all the marbles is JP? Do I have to hope my alarm doesn’t go off to wake me up?

    Pray that he's only good at *his* JP. In NYC Champs last year, he had a 54m game of IMDN in the quarterfinals...so anything is possible.

    Also, you don't have to worry, because it's the *first* game for all the marbles that would be on JP. The last game will be an early solid state. So start practicing for Cheetah or Stars or something.

    #616 5 months ago

    whysnow Freshii might be worth looking into. Their website kind of sucks for me right now, so hard to tell the exact menu, but it looks like the kind of place that would have lots of gluten free stuff. I ate most breakfasts there last year and it's right around the corner from Omni.

    Might be primarily (or entirely?) veggie, in case that's a plus or minus for anyone.

    #617 5 months ago

    last year we had great rate for parking at the event center. what will be price per day this year and how does it work if we leave it more than 1 day there?

    #618 5 months ago

    Of course anything can change, but on the Deadflip stream they said JP would not be in the tournament, but there would be 1 premium and 6 pro's to play at the Stern booth.

    I was looking into this yesterday, more so to see what the clearance is.
    Their site says it is $30/day.

    Quoted from KevInBuffalo:

    I don’t think there are any parts suppliers, but you can see the full vendor list in the ReplayFX app.

    I am not a parts supplier, but I will have something pinball related for all of you to check out at ReplayFX.

    Come check out the 5 different music mixes on Iron Maiden at the Pinball MIX tent.

    - Iron Maiden B-Sides (including Paul Di'Anno)
    - Disco Maiden
    - Made In 80s Mix
    - Mystery Band/Artist #1
    - Mystery Band/Artist #2

    There will be a rotating schedule for the mixes at the tent. Come back at different times over the 4 days of Replay to see the variety.

    I'll be in Pinburgh, so if you finish a round early, hit the tent, and I should be there shortly (unless I get World Poker Tour in my Bank ...)

    Hello! I'm new to the pinball forums and just purchased my first pin. I have a question on ReplayFX. I've reviewed their website and the posts on this forum. However; I still want to confirm there is open pinball play before I spend $120 on the event. You can freely (with ticket) walk around and play the old machines, correct?

    #623 5 months ago
    Quoted from KingBW:

    What's the clearance height?

    The website says 8ft.

    Hopefully tall enough to fit my Chevy Express 3500 into. Finding a spot to park shouldnt be a problem since I'll be getting there so early.

    I'm working W 12hrs , T 13hrs, F 14hrs, S 14hrs, S 11hrs.

    Yes. Every machine is set to freeplay.

    but to clarify slightly...

    the vast majority are in use for tournament play all day Thursday and Friday.

    Most are available on Saturday (only a smaller subset are reserved for play in finals of each division)
    All are available on Sunday.

    I'd clarify this clarification slightly to say that the majority of games open up on Saturday evening. Even the A finals are usually by done by 9pm, and the show runs late, giving everybody at least a few hours run of the place.

    #628 5 months ago

    And remember all the other games that'll be there too.

    And the cosplay contest.

    This is disappointing and probably should be noted on the website somewhere. I booked a hotel and bought tickets for just the Thursday and Friday and wanted to play the free play games listed on the website.

    There are over 400 pinball machines listed under the games section of the website and it says they will all be set to free play. A note about the vast majority being unavailable for free play Thursday and Friday would have been nice.

    The general free play area is still very large. Even with pinburgh running, there are more pins available to play than at many pinball shows -- and then there's all the arcade and console stuff too. It's not like there's 3 games available -- there's a ton.

    Also - you'll have the best crack at the 7 JP machines at Stern's booth every time a pinburgh round starts; so there's that.

    Great, thanks for confirming.

    It was hearing the "vast majority" part that started getting me thinking it might not be the best plan on my part. I am looking to purchase a few more games for my game room and there are plenty on the list I wanted to try out.

    I was also only 'mildly' disappointed as well as I am sure my wife and I will find plenty of things to do at ReplayFX and in Pittsburgh.

    #638 5 months ago
    Quoted from Sleepy:

    "vast majority"

    maybe they have more free play this year?

    Still lots, but a wild guess is last year there were 150-200ish in regular free play pinball
    400ish in Pinburgh

    I am sure someone will correct me on specifics but the majority are used for tourney play.

    still a blast and TONS to do

    There's gonna be 7 Stern JPs there. That's a pretty big attraction.

    It's literally the only place in the world a civilian can play the game this weekend.

    There will be over 600 pins at the show. 388 used in Pinburgh.

    The vast majority free up Friday night after the last Pinburgh round.

    Quoted from ninjadoug:

    This is actually the best time to play. Pinburgh competitors are exhausted and need to eat/sleep.

    #642 5 months ago

    Just to clarify, presenting the scan code for Pinburgh and ReplayFX entry on my phone is just as good as printing an actual sheet out, correct?

    Just making sure with all the technological advances these past 30 or so years, I’ll be able to use the barcode from my phone, just like with the airlines, hotels, gas stations, etc...

    Does anyone know if there will be a place to lock up bikes or lockers available to store belongings? I know we can bring a backpack, but I don't know if I want to lug it around all day. Curious how much stuff I should bring along or if I should just leave everything at the hotel.

    Also, are collapsable chairs ok?

    Collapsible seating of some sort is a must, if you ask me, and definitely allowed. Most people bring smaller tripod stools,though, which fit better into the flow of people. I carry a small backpack, basically large enough to hold the stool folded up plus some food and a water bottle. I do not find it too hard to lug around, but I am also used to carting a purse around so YMMV.

    No lockers that I have ever seen. I am guessing there are bike racks outside though although I have not paid attention to that.

    Getting close now!

    Are the machines clearly labeled as being in tournament play? I don't want to mess someone up.

    #649 5 months ago
    Quoted from Looprunner:

    They are on the complete opposite end of the show. Can’t miss them or accidentally try and play them.

    #650 5 months ago
    Quoted from Looprunner:

    Are the machines clearly labeled as being in tournament play? I don't want to mess someone up.

    Here's a hint: If you have stumbled across a huge bank of pristine pinball machines and there are zero people or only a smattering of people playing them, it's probably the competition bank!

    They are pretty well separated so shouldn't be an issue.
