    Anyone have some inside information on the best arcades/bars to visit with the best pinball machines. Im headed on a road trip and ill be there all next week visiting the GFs family and looking for some spots to sneak off to. Looked at the map but pretty out of date any info would be great!!!

    If you have time, get up to Lyons Classic Pinball (open Thursday - Sunday afternoons/evenings). Lyons is about 15 miles north of Boulder and they have 30+ games in excellent condition, including a beautiful AC/DC BIBLE. They have everything from classic EM's to modern Sterns.

    Closer to Denver, Lakewood Grill is a good choice. Last time I was there they had Starship Troopers, Iron Man, Avengers Hulk, Twilight Zone, Dracula, and Skateball.

    Downtown Denver has the 1up. This venue can be very noisy, but the 15 pins there are top notch. Also, 2up isn't far away and has good titles, though I haven't been there yet.

    Just took out the Iron Man and put in a Monsterbash at the 2up! Hope we see you there

    Flipper McGills is about half an hour west of Denver off I70 in Idaho Springs. It is owned by Maldoror, an old Pinside moderator. Oh, and the pizza place a few doors down has really good pizza.
    Crap, looks like he is closed for relocation.

    Flipper McGills isnt open, but should be mid May or so in a new location (in Idaho Springs)

    Quoted from eXidy:

    This is the best news I've had all day! I loved his old place, I was so sad to see it close.

    I haven't been to the 1UP yet, but the pins at the 2UP are amazing.
