Hey Guys, WOZ is coming to East Side Pinball within a couple weeks. Ill post an update when it has been delivered!
I love going to Sun Ray to play some pinball -- cool to see that someone here is responsible for that, I just assumed it was the bowling alley. I'll have to go back and try out Ghost Busters, but all of the machines I've played there have been a ton of fun!
East Side Pinball is moving
Saint Paul, MN —> Mounds View, MN
It may be hard to believe, but this adventure started back in October 2013 with only two pinball machines and zero operating experience.
Since then, we have expanded to as many as thirteen machines on location. We have seen East Side Pinball evolve from a few machines in a bar to a full-fledged arcade operation. In that time, we've cycled through over 30 different machines, hosted multiple launch parties, held countless tournaments, and have become home to various weekly leagues.
It's safe to say that we have learned a lot together. Through all of the fun and frustration that comes with being an operator, one constant has remained. You, THE PLAYERS, are the reason East Side Pinball has flourished over the last four years.
Many of you may not know this, but I was a manager at Sun Ray Lanes roughly 14 years ago. This center has always been special to me and having the opportunity to operate my games here has been an absolute dream come true. With that being said, the time has come for a change.
East Side Pinball has grown so much over the last four years and the simple fact is that we have outgrown our current space. As we look forward towards expanding our operation, Sun Ray Lanes is also looking to expand and add some new features for their bowlers. We have been working very closely with the owners and managers of Sun Ray and have ultimately decided to move East Side Pinball to The Mermaid in Mounds View, MN, which is another Anderson Companies location.
We are tremendously excited to be getting a new home! East Side Pinball will now have an opportunity to grow beyond the limited space we have at Sun Ray. Our move to The Mermaid will see an EXPANSION of our pinball collection, a LARGER seating area for leagues, tournaments, and events, MORE TVs, and MORE SPACE to grow. The Mermaid also offers a full restaurant and an expanded bar.
I really want to thank each and every one of you for supporting us at Sun Ray Lanes. It has been an amazing ride and I can’t wait to build a bigger and better pinball experience at The Mermaid! We are very excited about our new home and hope you will come and join us as we enter this next chapter.
