I am trying to use the pinside.com search feature to see where there is any Orbiter 1 machine [ http://pinside.com/pinball/archive/?s=1&keyword=orbiter ]. I know there is supposed to be one at PAPA [ http://pinside.com/pinball/map/where-to-play/papa-world-headquarters-2512-carnegie-pa-united-states ].

Here is a video of the machine being played at PAPA:

I can't think of any other machine I'd rather find to play.

there was one at allentown this year...

it is "interesting", that's for sure... i played it several times, and couldn't figure out how to control the ball... seemed to have a mind of its own...

#3 7 years ago

there's one at my house if your near Wi. Plays good too.

Your location is unknown.

You can't find what you're looking for and no one will be able to find you if they have a O1 for you to play.

Why are you making things hard for yourself?

I know where mine is...In north Texas.

I know where mine is too......in my basement.

Maybe if the OP removes the anonymity of his location, he might be able to find someone local or near to where he lives.

There's one at Blainbrook Bowl near Minneapolis, along with about 40 other pins.

There's a nice one a bit north of NYC....

My son played one at the PHOF this past weekend. Just buy a ticket and fly out here. The weather's nice this time of year.

That is the draw of the game, it is something different. Once you have a handful of games under your belt you will get the hang of it.

Oh damn, another Zippy, think there are three of us now.

I know where there are three locked up in a building. Price is too high to get them out and owner is a tough one to deal with.

yea, it is different, and it definitely drew me in... as noted, i played it several times... i just couldn't figure out how to make it do what i wanted it to do, vs. what it wanted to do...

if one ever came up cheap around here, i'd be tempted to buy it just for the challenge of learning how to control it... i think in a reasonably sized collection it would be a nice addition...

I know where yours will be Nov 8th and 9th.
