Awesome, I’ll be sure to stop in soon and again when you get TNA.

Thanks for the support. We are told TNA is within a few weeks. All new units are pegged to go to Helicon so if you are interested in something coming out, it should be there relatively quickly. Also thinking about putting Alien back out along with TBL. Nervous but may have a go at it.

#5 7 months ago

Confirmed- Lexy Lightspeed will be at Helicon for the Launch!

#6 7 months ago

I'll def stop by as well (excited to play some TnA! when it arrives). Good to know about this place.

#7 7 months ago

How's the beer? This place would be my dream to invest in.

We are 191 so should be soon. I'll be sure to tag the thread.

The beer is meticulously made. That's for sure. The head brewer is extremely careful about the entire process. Great guy. Tries to talk to me about the science of it but that's out of my realm of thinking. Haha, sorry Chris if you are reading this.

We also have full arcades at Voodoo Brewing in Homestead and All Saints Brewing in Greensburg.

Yeti Eddie, Neti and the gang ready to roll!

Thanks Dirk. Place is very cool. I know you have games in breweries too. Thought about doing a crazy leader board of like titles' scores at breweries like we do with brewery dart leagues.

So you operate the machines at Voodoo, Helicon, and Starport Arcade and Pub in Morgantown? That's awesome! I actually just drove to Starport on Wednesday to play TNA for the first time but it was down

Wanted to thank everyone again for the incredible turnout! We were blown away by the amount of friends and family in attendance. It was also great to meet up with some pinside peers and talk pinball.

The collection at Helicon will be changing and growing so if you want to add some input to things we are doing there, please feel free. I've also logged game requests from everyone yesterday. None should be an issue in the grand scheme of things.

Next event is May 19th. If you're around, stop in.

Many thanks from both Chris B. And I!!

I’ve never played in a tournament before but this location is close enough that I must say that I’m intrigued. I only get one Saturday off a month (not this one unfortunately) is that the day that you normally run them?

Checkout the link above ... they appear to be doing this once a month and have it scheduled for the next two months out!

We are running monthly on Saturdays at the minute. We have discussed multiple ideas for weekly tournaments.

Check the Helicon Facebook page for details and dates! We really appreciate your support!
