    I looked at the schedule. Does "exhibit hall opens" mean that you can only play pinball at night? Please correct me as I have not attended.

    Is the Star Trek launch party in Chicago a part of Expo or separate? Can't find any info on it...

    How cool is THAT?!? Wish I could make it for THIS, if for nothing else.
    Also looking forward to some footage/photos of the latest iteration of Predator. Have fun everyone!

    Mike - if we want to go on the Stern tour - do we have to pre-register, or can we just show up and register/pay on the spot?

    Will there be shuttles to Pinball life? I missed out last year and have never been there before.

    From the sounds of it there won't be a shuttle to Terry's party, but there are usually are people going who you can tag a ride with.

    Once again the P-ROC booth that will be crammed with custom games gets no mention at all. But hey, that hercules game will be there again, that's always worth pointing out.

    There are two areas .. the exhibit hall is the area where merch is for sale and a number of pins are on free play. It is open/closed as per the schedule. The second area of free play is the area that stays open overnight and is also available when the hall is open (the only exception to this is during pinbrawl when that area is closed to all but the competitors)

    Hope that helps
