Hello fellow Pinsiders! I went to Pintastic Pinball and Game Room Expo last summer in Sturbridge, Massachusetts and it was fantastic. My ten year old son and I spent all four days there, and we stayed in the Expo hotel. It was one of the best times I’ve ever had. JJ Willy Wonka had just been released, and three of the stars of the movie were there, as were artists and big people from Stern and Jersey Jack himself was also there. There is a 24 hour game room with between 20 and 30 of the top machines, some all modded out, that you can play only if you have a premium or LE ticket. There are limited LE tickets so during the day it’s easy to get to play a top game with little or no wait. In the main room you might have to wait a bit. The LE ticket gives you 24 hour access to the Extra Ball Room, the premium pass gives you access from 8:00 pm until the morning. I just really got into pinball last October, so had never gone to an expo before. By the time I decided to go, all the LE tickets were sold out. So I wanted to let you guys know the tickets went on sale today and I already bought mine. I hope to see many of you there. It would be great to meet some of you. I was not able to go to Chicago Expo or TPF, but both my son and I are definitely going to make it to Pintastic. The dates are June 25-28, 2020 at the Boxboro Regency Hotel in Boxborough, Massachusetts. There are group room rates available. Happy flipping!
