    actually @ Disney this weekend......IJ and POTC in Magic Kingdom Arcade, around the corner from the video games...easy to find...only got to play each game once (out of respect, actually a mini line of kids wanting to play...made me happy to step aside after one long round on each)....both machines played well (weak flippers, leveling issue on POTC) and were pretty well lit. My first time at both tables and enjoyed them both....overheard some teenagers commenting on how much they loved pinball...good stuff.....sure beat the 75 minute wait for space mountain. Already rode rockin rollercoaster earlier at the other park, so my near-death fix had already been filled for the day...PINBALL STILL ALIVE in the Kingdom!!!...mark

    btw - quality of parks are definitely NOT declining ( used to live in Tampa years ago, and I was one of the first to ride the "new" Space Mountain when it was unveiled)...they are rebuilding and adding on like crazy out there........

    final Disney post after a long weekend....

    Stayed @ Clarion Inn, Lake Buena Vista:

    Arcade on-site in lobby:

    TSPP- very weak flippers, overall, a little slow (second one I've played, sort of stop and go, anyway) but playable w/ some getting used to....btw.....not even in the same league as TZ, comparing stop and go, in my opinion......very glad I bought SM as my STERN.....

    Dale Earnhardt Nascar Pin - crazy fast, great shape, and pretty fun to play (I don't really like these type of machines, but the double, triple loop had me going after a long day at the parks...made me dizzy keeping track of the ball..)...took a fair amount of quarters off of me...wouldn't own one, but definitely filled the pinball fix for the night....

    that's it...back home, and hope to be sleeping soon......mark

    There's a Tron Pro and POTC at Disney's Polynesian next to Capt. Crook's quick serve restaurant. The Tron is really tight. I've never played before. Costs only 25 'credits' to play. (600 credits for $10). Fruit Ninja was 50 credits, so you can see the difference in popularity.

    Played 10 games or so. Replayed about 6 times. Liked the game a lot. POTC was in good shape but plays slower and seemed a little sluggish.

    You guys should check out Cow Lick's in Daytona, they have SS, MB, SWEP1, Bally HD, and they recently added RFM. Games are in great working condition. Give them a spin and support the place, and don't forget to get food/ice cream!

    Played the pins in Space Mountain yesterday. Avengers, Xmen, Avatar, Indiana Jones and POTC. They were all running, meaning "powered on" but were filthy. Xmen was soot black and ran left so hard that anything dropping out of the Magneto lock drained the ball. My wife played Avengers and walked away muttering "That sucked." I asked "Your one game or that game in general?" She said "both"

    I did see some kids playing and enjoying the pins though. There is still interest....far more in the redemption room with the crane games etc but still interest.

    OT it was my seven year olds first time on Space Mountain. What started in tears of fright ended in big smiles and "can we do it again?" Disney is great!!

    I was there a few weeks ago and played some of the pins. They were all very dirty, but mostly working. Between earning free games and matching, I left 3 games on Avengers after I had played all I wanted to. I found a guy with his son and told them there were free games on it and they ran over to play.

    I had time for one horrible game on Xmen and was pulled away by my excited daughter wanting to ride again. I'll tell you what this is the best time of year to be here. American kids are back in school (except for...ahem...ours and there are some foreign families traveling but that's about it. We did Thunder Mtn railroad three times in a row. No wait, trains were not full. Space Mtn had about a 10 minute wait but that's it. Really nice down here in fact Im back to it now! L8R

    Wow, sounds like they haven't cleaned them since I was there in January. In January they were all clean and looked like they were taken care of. Avengers was not working and IJ had a divot at the magnet by the ark, but otherwise it worked and was playable. I posted about it on my site:

    Any updates on locations on Disney property with pinball machines? I know some of these are no longer around.

    Love it when an old thread is resurrected!

    Disney Quest was torn down last year.

    Not directly related but there was a spiderman vault and I believe avengers at universal studios orlando.

    #65 7 days ago

    There are typically a couple of pins at some of the major resorts. The last I remember was a Tron at the Contemporary.

    #66 7 days ago

    Each "All Star" hotel has an arcade in the main building (at least the ones I went into). They all had between 2 and 4 pins all of which were Stern/Disney licenses.

    All of the onsite hotels have an arcade. Most are pretty small. In the last several years I have not come across a fully working pin at any of the hotels.

    In the marvel arcade in Universal, I only saw spiderman. I was there a few weeks ago.

    Take a Trip to the Pinball Lounge during non peak driving hours!
    A New 4000 sq ft arcade has also opened nearby.

    This weekend is Freeplay, Nearby, and Next week is IAPPA, if ones in town.

    Pinball map shows a handful at some on property hotels. I will try and check those out.

    We were there this summer. I played a lot of Star Wars at the pop Century resort it was in great shape, but I read here just a few months later it had all kinds of lights out. Tron and xmen there were all beat up. Avengers at Art of Animation hardly worked.
    Animal kingdom Lodge Jambo house had Tron and Stern POTC, both had so many lights out you could hardly see the ball and weak flippers. Over at Animal Kingdom Kidani Village they had Stern Indiana Jones. The skill shot switch on the plunge was completely missing. Right flipper was so weak you could only hit the ramp if it was perfect.
    Very disappointing. We go every summer and I used to play a lot at the resorts and they were in pretty good shape. Not anymore.

    #72 5 days ago

    Was there in Oct, stayed at the Polynesian. Arcade gone, Contempory acrcade gone, Floridian nothing. No pins in any of the theme parks. Downtown Disney is big and may have some, but didn't want to go there to look.

    #73 5 days ago

    At Art of Animation now. They have a tron, avengers and stern star wars. Avengers and Tron are pretty dirty. Star Wars has LEDs and looks pretty good. Didnt have time to play them.

    Question of the decade is, WHO is the distributor of Disney's pins? Apparently, from what I've gathered, they don't own them and when they really get shitty, they pull them and then they're never seen again. We're talking a lot of pins from RBION/ELVIS on up, sitting around in a warehouse collecting dust, needing major shop jobs, or, unthinkably, destroyed....

    Quoted from shacklersrevenge:

    I was wondering this last week while I was there. Prob have like 5 IJs and potc's beat to shit laying around. They take such poor care of the games there. I stayed at several resorts this last trip AOA did have a busted up tron with the upper left flipper not working game was dirty as shit. Star wars was good and fully working and I played it alot. Avengers was out of service. We then went to Bay lake where they had a Stern IJ, the flippers we're super weak and all the spot lights were not working could barely see a thing. We go there every year and stay at different resorts all the resorts that have pins which is not many are in poor shape.

    Either they (unlikely) or their distributor have dozens, if not a hundred, well routed pins just sitting around. Hard to figure out just how to get to the source, but if they do in fact still have them, it's very hard to believe they wouldn't sell them each for a couple grand a piece.

    A couple years ago, I met two Techs at a Party here, that worked for the Party responsible.
    I dont recall names, but when asked, they shared they were aware, but had no authority, or opportunity
    to purchase replacement parts, and were issued rules to spend the most minimal of time on routine maintenance.
    They felt bad they couldnt do their job correctly.....All about money, and not about people/players.

    Two years ago i was at the Disney Quest in Downtown Disney and this explains the state of the 10 pinball machines they had. My favorite was the Xmen. The magnet in front of Wolverine was missing and the hole was covered with layers of tape.
