My friend and I traveled from Kansas City to attend this show. This was only the second show we have been to with replay fx 2016 being the first.
First off, the people who were running this show are a class act. I did not have a chance to talk to Marvin much but Don and Brian couldn't have been any better than they were. We only spent about one hour a day away from the show since my friend insisted upon eating. That is how good this show was!
The variety of pinball machines was superb and you never had to wait in line as long as you were willing to play an open machine that was not made in the last couple of years. The hotel had breakfast prices so cheap to where I asked the waitress if they had forgot the 1 on the price. Eight dollars at a hotel for an omelet or an all you can eat hot buffet ... Crazy!
After the first night my friend and I discovered the need to go to a liquor store. According to Yelp there was one two miles away and we were about to uber there on Friday when Brian offered to take us himself. He took us to a place we never would have found and asked nothing for it.
On top of this, Gary from Abel Electronics and Butch from Jersey Jack gave us a two hour crash course in pinball maintenance. For people who have only owned machines for six months this was fantastic.
My only regret from this show is one every show should want to have . . . it wasn't long enough! We could have played here for a week and still have thought the same thing. We will definitely be back next year and I recommend this show to anyone interested in playing a variety of machines with hosts who make you feel like you live down the street from them. Thank you again to Don, Brian and Marvin for hosting such a great event.
