    I was informed that the arcade at disneyworld has AFM, IJ and a few other A listers. Can't remember the others but thought i'd mention that in case any of you are going anytime soon. I'm not saying when i'm going as my pins are too close to the exits of my home, ahem, ahem...

    No pins in Epcot - if you leave the park via the International Gateway in World Showcase (between England and France) and head to the Beach Club hotel you may be in luck - last time I was there they had a POTC in the arcade next to Beaches and Cream, which is a great ice cream place that also does burgers, hot dogs etc.

    As for the pins in MK - they've seen better days. Last time I was there one was switched off and the others had multiple issues. I wouldn't go out of your way. Disney does lots of things well, unfortunately maintaining pins isn't one of them.

    I'll be there with my family in January. Where is that cool custom IJ that Nimble posted about a while back?

    #7 7 years ago

    I'm leaving for WDW in two weeks. We were there two years ago and the pins at the pop century were in pretty good shape.

    Thanks for the heads up dave - I'll be on the look out for the arcade in tomorrow land.

    Gweempose the custom IJ is at Disneyland in California.

    You mean the one I get to play almost every week..?

    If you are going to WDW the Jambo house has a very nice POTC and Kidani Village has a Stern IJ and a NASCAR.
    As for the arcade at DW DL, both machines were in pretty bad shape...

    Great article on the custom IJ.

    I put more pictures of it in the IJ gallery section.

    It is too bad the machine (as of today) is now covered in dirt again...

    Pretty sad...

    This is what it looked like two months ago...

    Nimble, You gotta hire some of those Imagineers to do your Tron.

    So I am just all thumbs then when it comes to modding???
    I'm just messing with ya' gweem!
    I don't want to go TOO overboard with it. I have a topper prototype in the works and still have to do the recognizer and lightcycle mods as well.
    "Tick-tock tick-tock!" (Zuse)
    I did have a "re-skin" idea, as well as an alternate translite that I would love to try...
    Alas, I will probably just leave it stock, just-in-case I have to sell it one day.

    I love to go to Disneyland. Didn't see the custom IJ on the last visit, but frankly, there's just so much to do at Disney besides pinball it's not a priority when I go.

    Still, it would be nice to think that *if* I wanted a quick pin fix the games would be in good shape. Sadly, over the years I've read it's pretty slim pickings.

    Put pins aside and just enjoy the park. It's basically a giant pinball machine anyway.

    We got 100 free tokens with our vacation package and i intend on using them!

    I'll be there when there's 100% chance of snow in my area.

    I used to love to play that machine, but about 3 or 4 years ago they got rid of it. The last 2 times I went to Disneyland and went back to that souvenir shop across from Indiana Jones Adventure to play it, it was gone and when I asked about it, the emplyees told me they got rid of it. So what is up? Did they temporarily get rid of it or did they move it to a different location?
    P.S. I always thought a TZ should be placed in the lobby of the TZ Tower of Terror ride at California Adventure.

    Oh, and Vic had the high score on it after I was done.

    +1 Not a bad idea...

    By the way, for you upcoming visitors, this is required reading when visiting during the busy seasons. It's old but mostly still applies.

    Using these tips and bouncing between CA Adventure and Magic Kingdom, my girlfriend and I never waited more than 15 minutes for anything.

    Doesn't Disney Quest (Downtown Disney, pay to enter) have a good selection of pins still?

    Disney Quest is highly recommended if you like video games / retro gaming. Spent all day there when I went a good few years ago.
