    Looking to add more pins to a family based ice cream store. Any suggestions that would appeal to all ages as well as to a few pin diehards?? Thanks

    Dialed In!

    But if I were you, I'd go with something a little less expensive. Star Wars perhaps? Brutal game though.

    MMR, AFMR, Tron and Dialed In.

    Based on Mrs Pin's girls both picking Theatre of Magic as a fav, that might be a suggestion that would work.

    Youth? Transformers

    A newer JJP like Dialed In will wow the casual fan and a pins like MMr, AFMr, Star Wars, Metallica, Iron Maiden and GOTG, would keep everyone happy. You could go with a classic like Adams Family or Monster Bash as well.

    The one's on your wishlist seem appropriate!!

    Thanks for the terrific advice

    I've only got 2 pins at the moment, but whenever kids are over Taxi inevitably gets played.

    Family guy
    Metallica
    Dirty Harry
    Scared stiff
    Probably throw Iron Maiden in there too while we’re on a roll...

    Multimorphic P3, running any of Barnyard, ROCs or Cannon Lagoon depending on the age range demographic. Plus you have the option for the full Lexy Lightspeed for more serious players. The upcoming Cosmic Cart Racing is going to be effectively a "Mario Kart" with pinballs, so that might suit you too. Upfront cost may seem high, but the game selection and ease of switching between them makes up for that in a hurry.

    Here's a YouTube link for a video of a friend playing ROCs:

    Also check out the Multimorphic web site for a lot more info and video links.

    You might add Slugfest as a fun alternative to the pins.

    What pins do you have there already?

    #20 8 months ago

    Fish Tales
    No Good Gophers
    Ghostbusters

    Good pins.

    #22 8 months ago

    POTC kills on route with kids.

    #24 8 months ago

    I don’t think Iron Maiden is child appropriate. Although different strokes....

    GotG would probably be a hit with kids, if your going with a new game.

    #25 8 months ago

    You want pins that have a more simplified rule set and easy to learn. This keeps your non Pinheads coming back.

    World Cup 94 was mentioned.
    Terminator 2, kids love the theme
    No Good Gofers
    Fish Tales
    Party Zone (cheap $$, and really fun!!)

    Revenge from mars

    Totally agree. Stepping up and scoring a goal is easy, doesnt need any instruction, and and gives immediate feedback with lights and sound.

    I’ve been collecting for 5 years and had many games come and go. My 8 year old still plays this one often and tells me that it’s the only pinball he’s good at! Haha! The magic of scoring those goals...

    T2....the skull face will scare some kids. You want kids saying “yay! Ice cream and pinball!!! Let’s go!! ...not, “ummmm...that place scares me”...

    cactus jacks!
    Its easy enough for kids to play, and has enough shots for pinball enthusiasts to at least play a game or two. I find that it entertains guests of all ages when they come over. The kids absolutely love the singing and dancing cactus band.
    Plus, if you can find one, it will be a relatively inexpensive option as far as pinball machines go.
