    We don't have a ton of pinball in the wild, but there are a few places.

    Grinkers Grand Palace - If you love 80s arcade games, this is the place to go. I think they have about 300 arcade games.
    Woodland Empire - Some of the newer Stern pins are here. (JP & Deadpool)
    Space Bar - It's been awhile since I've been here, but they have a few pins as well.

    I operate the pins at Woodland Empire and can assure you they are all in great condition consistently(now that i said that they will prob all go down when you arrive ). Deadpool pro, jurassic park pro, alice coopers nightmare castle, the getaway, lethal weapon 3, and gorgar. Im a player turned operator, so i keep them in the condition id like to play them in. Bodega boise has a t2 and woz which were in great shape last i was in there. But it has been several months so can't attest to the condition. Spacebar has a good lineup also, star trek pro, IM pro, SoR pro, RZ, TNA, and a couple solid states, they also have non pinball arcade games. Machine condition is dependant, def a cool spot though, you should check these places out as they are all fairly close together through the heart of downtown boise. Our pinball scene is healthier than most people think but its still pretty underground and growing. And as mentioned above grinkers has a bunch, unfortunately the pins are not in very good condition most of the time. They do have a shitload of other 80s and 90s arcade games also.

    Look up treasure valley pinball on Facebook for any possible events during that time. I don't think there are any IFPA events happening, but there's a private pinball clubhouse that opens up to public randomly with 30 or so pinballs, from EMs to kiss/metallica. There may be an open house freeplay event pop up during your stay, you never know.

    Have a nice trip here! Be sure to let me know your honest opinion of my lineup! Ive only been operating about 6 weeks now, and confident you'll like them.

    Check out the Ugly Gold Couch on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/events/2452292988419873/
    It's a private pinball collection/clubhouse. We have 32 machines in the front room, and we are having an Open Play event on November 9 from 2-7pm.
    Lots of fun and very nice people. BYOx.

    We sometimes do group repair sessions too, so if you're good at giving repair advice, the doors could be opened even sooner!
    PM me if you have any trouble finding us.
