    Hey,

    Gonna be in Denver Saturday and night. Any local barcades or pin locations with a good local beer selection to play at? We haven't booked a hotel yet, so no idea where in the city we will be. Just know we will be downtown somewhere.

    Thanks!

    the 1UP!!!!!

    #3 2 years ago

    They have (2) locations, so hopefully you will be close to one of them. Both look to have great line-ups

    John's arcade tours of each location from early 2015

    1up, 2up, three kings tavern, cuckoos nest, game exchange has games on free play on their show floor. if you venture out boulder has press play, Lyons has Lyons classic pinball which is a must stop if possible. fort collins has Pinball Jones.

    edit JJ beat me to the info by 15 seconds

    #6 2 years ago

    JJ, I would love to come by, I'll have to try and make it work. With a bachelor party and I'm the only Pinhead. Thought the craft beer location might be the only way I can get these guys to stop in somewhere.

    I'll keep you posted.

    #7 2 years ago

    Also, thanks for the heads up on the locations gents! With that many around, I'm sure we will be close to one of them.

    Caucasian2step has a few games at Chain Reaction Brewery. not sure what the current lineup is there but they had a TZ and TSPP awhile back.

    Nice! I'm sure they play great.

    #10 2 years ago

    You've come to the right place for pinball. Both 1Up's have a great mix of the newest Sterns with the classic 90's B/W's. MM, Monster Bash, WH20, Creature, AF. Honestly, some of the best pinball venues in the country. As far as the craft beer goes, it needs no touting from me.

    If you feel like going about an hour north of city, Lyons Classic is also one of best in country.

    #12 2 years ago

    A few weeks ago was my first visit to Denver. I headed West through the Rockies, what a beautiful drive. Look what I found in Breckenridge.

    I'll try. I think we're rafting and won't be done till around 4 though.

    #20 2 years ago

    I think we're Eric's bound. I'll report back.

    #21 2 years ago

    Just got back from Eric's. Good spot for food beer sports and pin. TWD pro and GOT LE played well. The ram on GOT wasn't registering very well, but that's typical. Had fun. We actually played BBH HD a lot too. I have a friend who's into it. That's a fun game to play with a group.

    Definitely recommend it if in breck.

    #22 2 years ago

    Just went to 1up. Games were flawless. The place was crawling with people, but the games were on point. I had so much fun. I went to the colfax one.

    Headed to Denver myself this coming weekend (and following week). Desperately hoping to get some time at 1up, but I will be forced to stay at Keystone for the duration due to work commitments, and I understand that's kind of far away!

    It'll be my first time in the USA so I'm really hoping at some stage I can get some time at 1up, but who knows. Are there any leagues that play there that I might be able to drop in on (if I can make it)?

    Jumpin on Chuck Wurts back here...
    I'll be at the 1-Up on Colfax from 4-last call. Would be cool to meet some of ya Denverites. We can smoke up and swap Peyton Manning stories.

    #25 2 years ago

    Did you at least bring some shrimp cocktail from St. Elmo's?

    #26 2 years ago

    Ha ! Is that the best sinus-clearing sauce or what ?? Peyton and I's favorite. I just brought some Skeletonwitch.

    #27 2 years ago

    At the Denver Childrens Museum now. Scotty....beam me up to the 1-Up light speed ! But holy cow, God bless all these super-fit yummy CO Moms. Mmm.

    #28 2 years ago

    1 ups are cool and all but about 30 min north of downtown is Lyons pinball.. one of the best pinball locations I have ever been.. 35ish games to play and the owner takes really good care of games. they don't serve food or drinks, but restaurant next door does

    #29 2 years ago

    Last year at Thanksgiving the Colfax 1-Up had a GNR and a MOPLE. With an ACDC Premium being moved in that day.
    None of those machines were there.
    But threw over $20 in GB. I'm impressed all to hell. Feel the same way about Hobbit. Gorgeous, fun game. I played it less because it was $1. I like that ramp. A lot.
    Met the cool local kid that threw up 750,000,000 on GB. Fell in love with TOM.

    #30 2 years ago

    The 1-Up.
    No machines I played ever had an error. Immaculate shape.
    Bartender and bouncer cool af. Love that joint.

    #31 2 years ago

    1-Up sucked a few years back with the punk-ass help they had. We decided to never go back and I'll never recommend them.

    #32 2 years ago

    Sorry to hear that. My experience there has always been cool though, like, really fun to talk to cool.

    #33 2 years ago

    Was actually there from 4-1am. Had such a good time on some well kept machines.

    #34 2 years ago

    Jukebox needs some Skeletonwitch though.

    Quoted from Gryszzz:

    Sorry to hear that. My experience there has always been cool though, like, really fun to talk to cool.

    Ive never had an issue at either 1up location. Staff is always cool to me. Plenty of free games left on machines from pinball newbs, as well.

    I do stay away on weekend nights though, to avoid the heavy drinking bros and suburbanites.

    I want to give a shout out for the Wash Park Sports Alley.
    http://m.washparksportsalley.com/
    The owner is obviously a collector and keeps his games in immaculate shape. Great food and service too. Here's the current line up:
    Stern Playboy
    ST pro
    SMVE
    GOT pre
    MMR
    Bally NBA Fast Break
    Walking Dead pro

    I do the ATM and Jukebox there. Greg is the owner and is a great guy. He keeps updating his lineup and adding more. Hes got the BUG bad.. Started with me putting a Hook in there a few years ago!

    I will be back in the belly of the beast tonight!! I will be back from a concert at red rocks around 12-1. I'll be at union station. Looks like 1up Lodo is close. Any other locations near by? Anything open past 2 am?

    Thanks!

    #39 2 years ago

    everything closes at 2

    #40 2 years ago

    Bummer. Well since Lodo is close to union station, maybe we can make it for a beer or two.

    #41 2 years ago

    Looks like we will have about 2 hours to kill before the bus gets us for red rocks. We will be at 1up Lodo from 4-6. Come meet up!!

    I plan on making a trip to Denver this winter. I've heard some horror stories about 1-up, but still plan on trying out a few pins.

    Anyone been to Arapahoe Bowling? Looks like they have a ton of pins I've never played..

    There are 2 MUST visit places when in the Denver area.
    #1 is Lyons Classic Arcade
    #2 is PressPlay

    Lyons sounds great, but is an hour away and I don't plan on renting a car.

    #45 2 years ago

    just post up and see if you can catch a ride with a local pinballer. Lyons is well worth renting a car for the day. Period!

    #46 2 years ago

    The 1up Colfax is amazing for pinball and arcade junkies. Brand new remodel.

    And don't sleep on hyperspace arcade just 5 miles outside the city...a cheap uber ride.

    What are those? I had a blast at each location.

    #49 2 years ago
    Quoted from chuckwurt:

    What are those? I had a blast at each location.

    Just things like bouncers being really aggressive, bartenders being rude and condescending. I doubt I'll be involved in anything like that, I'll only be there to play pinball and have a beer or two.

    Thanks for the invite Gex, I hope I can stop by.

    Thanks for the Hyperspace rec...looks like they have some nice early 80's games.

    Has anybody been to Arapahoe bowling? Flintstones, Shadow, Who Dunnit...a bunch of games they don't have here in MN.

    #50 2 years ago

    We have never had any issues at 1-up Colfax. It's a bar, so you get the reviews from people that get too drunk and cause problems and of course they don't think they were doing anything wrong. Also, when they closed the music venue portion a lot of people lost their minds over it and some of them left bad reviews on Yelp. We go there all the time, the lineup is amazing, never had any problems. Have fun!
