    This show is amazing!

    #109 11 days ago

    Wish we were there!

    #110 11 days ago

    It seems that the layout separates folks into areas.
    Could be I’m use to TPF and Expo what do you think?

    #111 11 days ago

    Yes it looks like a really high quality event in a really cool venue (UFO)!!!

    Nah it works well

    Everything is in a circle with multiple stairs everywhere.

    It flows better than other shows I’ve been to.

    Sounds like it's the show with the flow. Interested to hear the final number of attendees and pins.

    #114 11 days ago

    Compliments to the organisers, GREAT place for a pinball-event.
    And over 400 pins!! All you can play, with no waiting time.

    And met some great pinsiders in person, pdxmonkey with June, zaza with his wife, and burningman.
    Great that this pin-craziness is spread all over, and connects people from all over the world. Super!

    Had a blast!

    Pins are 470 and estimate number of visitors around 1300-1400 people on Saturday.

    #119 10 days ago

    I was there from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. yesterday with two friends from church who have never been to a pinball event. Imagine that as your first pin con!! Our minds were blown. An epic selection of games. Got to chat to one of my pin heroes, too, Kevin O'Connor and listened to Barry Ourseler's talk. An absolutely fantastic show. Thx a million to the organisiers and their helpers.

    #120 10 days ago
    Quoted from Rensh:

    hopefully Kill Bill, captain Nemo, etc.

    Antonio Ortuno (Captain Nemo) is there? Say hello to him!

    Looks like a fantastic event.

    #121 10 days ago

    just CRAZY !

    busy with tournaments, pity i've got no much time to "spend" all over the place
    but anyway, let's just admit it will need for sure 1 week if you want to spare some freetime trying to visit all that space and playing 10% of these pinballs !

    in fact, just feeling unreal, but no, you've done it ! proficiat to all of you having made this possible

    #122 10 days ago

    I just got back from the event. What a great day! I'd really like to thank the organizers and volunteers; It was amazing to see an event of such stupendous scale run so smoothly! I and my friends had an amazing experience. Thanks again!

    #123 10 days ago

    This was the best show i attended, unreal!

    #128 9 days ago

    I don't know how I missed this thread but say the DPO video that the Pinball Amigos posted and wow so cool, what a awesome location. I went to the Evoluon in the late 80's when it was a Phillips display but such a cool layout and great tribute to AFM.

    I will come to the next Evoluon DPO show as have family in Eindhoven and Maastricht.

    #129 9 days ago

    Just incredible. The venue and games were impressive, but the organizers, volunteers, and people make this show a must see. Super glad I made the trip......

    Mass props to evertone that brought a game to share...I had heard one guy brough 100 games.

    Thanks again Rens and all the crew. Well done!!

    #130 9 days ago

    This weekend was amazing. Been to a lot of shows already but this one was so impressive and well organized! The building, line up, nr of machines, main competition, technical condition of the machines, etc.. Thank you so much for all the work!

    #131 9 days ago

    Spectacular show, I had a blast.
    Thanks to all the hard working people involved for this extremely memorable event.

    #132 9 days ago

    BEST SHOW EVER!

    I doubt something like this will ever be seen again. This really was of world class level. Perfect location, literally hundreds and hundreds of games, vendors, new games, old games, seminars and lots and lots of friendly people.

    Truly unbelievable and my thanks to all volunteers who made this happen!

    #133 9 days ago

    This was absolutely epic. I've been to quite a few pinball shows, but the combination of having 470 pinball machines under one roof, in such a remarkable venue, was truly a one of a kind. Huge thank you to the crew or organizers and those who brought games! I was hosting the seminars on both days and I like to thank all speakers as well for their presentations. Most seminars were recorded, except for the last two (Jean Paul de Win and Barry Oursler part 2). Both Kevin O'Connor and Barry Ourler did two seminars in which they talked about the games they worked on and dished up some really nice industry stories. As I also had a Pinball magazine booth to look after I hardly played any pinball during the weekend. I did play the chinese built TBL and it played very smooth. Great job by Dutch Pinball, couldn't tell the difference with the origial game.

    For this show I had some special posters made with Kevin O'Connor sketches. The remaining posters will be offered on eBay and the Pinball Magazine webshop.

    Absolutely great show. If they do such a show again at the same location it's a must-see.

    #134 9 days ago

    SWDSO best game of the show.

    #138 8 days ago

    WOW just WOW you guys what an amazing show at an amazing location. This was my wife and my first pinball show and we where blown away! So glad we got to see this as it sounds like it was only this one time at that location. If you where not there you missed out big time.

    We met a lot of nice guys this past weekend and had a blast. Really enjoyed meeting Mic from Pinball Amigos such a nice guy, glad we got to talk to him and play a little pinball.

    If this is ever repeated make sure to go!

    We will for sure be back next year even if it will be at another location.

    I have never read such glowing reviews for a pinball show and I think they are all really deserved.
    We had a blast being there and would love a repeat but I understand that it was a LOT of work to organise.
    Maybe have one like this every five years?
    Thanks a lot for everybody that put their time into making this happen.
