I am coming up on my 50th birthday this year and I promised myself I would buy a pinball machine for my birthday. I only ever owned but 1 pinball machine in my life and that was Gridiron by gottlieb many years ago. I have been playing some pinball arcade on PlayStation but not as good as the real machine. I recently played ghostbusters at a local arcade and loved it. It was the only pinball machine there. In my city pinball is rare. Cannot find any games to play, so I am going to buy my own. Looking for good advice as to where to buy pinball machine in Canada? I am interested in Ghostbusters, Star Wars, iron man , game of thrones, World Cup soccer, Thanks

If you're buying new use Nitro. Tommy is fantastic. https://www.nitropinball.com/

Only place you need consider is tommy at nitro. Can’t say enough good things about him and their service.

Not cool.

Anyways, lots more of us on the Island over the past couple of years. Shoot me a private message and I'll hook you up with some private machines to play. I'm actually heading to town next week to grab a F-14 and a Beat The Clock.

Tommy himself will tell you that you might be better off ordering from Player 1 - BUT

Last I checked a Ghosbusters Pro was around $300 cheaper from Nitro. The shipping he quoted me is on par with what you would pay from Player 1. Plus if I was ordering right now, I would rather support the smaller guy who deals only with Pinball - even if it was a couple hundred more.

Thanks Linkage, I tried to private message you but it seems I have to wait until 24 hours because I am a new member to pinside.
