After going through all these environments of Harry Potter and reading the illustrated book with my daughter, I am thoroughly convinced that the pinball could be magical.

Insider Tip? I think JJP could do it justice, not sure about Stern.

I would love to see someone do it justice. I am sure the entire license package would be star bucks but I would be a buyer even at 15k for multiple units.

First time visitors from a long way away and we had the best time! Family friendly establishment made us feel right at home, staff and locals alike were welcoming and inclusive. Incredible array of tables meticulously maintained and great variety of beer options. Shout out to both the owner and operator for bringing your brews and pins together, fantastic community here and can't wait to visit again soon!

Thank you for the very kind words. Chrisb is truly the reason the location runs so well. He helps us every step of the way. We are glad you enjoyed all the entertainment Helicon has to provide. We hope you will stop back again as the games and drafts are always changing.

Cheers,

Rick and Morty is outta the box and next to the dude! First one for public play in Pittsburgh. Huge apologies to everyone that waited for this game. I truly wanted to receive it much earlier but this is when we got it and I'm happy to have the game at Helicon! Big thanks to Chris at Kingpin Games for getting us this unit. Also as always huge shout to Gary at Abel Electronics Gaming for being the boss that he is delivering our 5th Location JJP GNR!!

Rick and Morty now in the house too? So on top of Big Lebowski, GnR, JJP POTC - and now this. Amazing. Seriously. So lucky to live 20 min away from this place. The best there is.

Soooo boring, where’s Thunderbirds ???

Looking to come out Sunday for lunch unless Chris wants to open for Brunch.

(Disclaimer: no negativity was meant towards Thunderbirds it was the first thing to pop into my non-creative mind!)

Went today and Rick and Morty was off. Do you know when you will have it working?

Thanks Vince! I think we are all set though. Chrisb should be on it. I'm on the way back from MD now so I will do my best to stop.

Stopped Saturday morning. R&M was working when I was there. I enjoyed it. Always love TBL. Believe it or not, I spent a lot of time on BKSR and Game of Thrones Premium. Enjoy those two games.

Always a great place to visit!

cjmjmm2006 Any plans on ordering a RAZA from Deeproot or are they too much of an unknown at this point?

Haha. Check my resume. I want to order a RAZA but I don't know how to order a RAZA. We order all manufacturers as we want to support the growth of pinball at Helicon. On order is Nemo, Haggis in the past we have ordered multimorphic, suncoast, spooky, heighway, dutch, boutique games etc. Hopefully we can get some info and get this ball rolling. I'll keep this updated as soon as some info comes to light.

Thanks for your support Eric!!

#1386 3 years ago

Inquiry sent. Let's see where we end up

One of my favorite things about Helicon! I would have never played The Big Lebowski otherwise. Freaking love that game!

#1388 3 years ago

I stopped in for lunch today because I was hoping to play Rick and Morty before the new restrictions go into place. It was down again. Is this game having issues out of the box?

Wish I would have checked this thread before heading down there tonight because I was hoping to get to play it as well. Got there only to find it was turned off. I haven't had a chance to play it yet and hopefully it will be fixed when they open back after the new year.

I got a Helicon gift card from my secret Santa I can’t wait to go back!

#1391 3 years ago

Thanks for letting me know about morty again. At this point I'm not sure what to say. I'll have a talk with chrisb this weekend but I assume the game is having issues. Unfortunately not much I can say until I get in front of it again. I appreciate you guys and apologize for all the inconvenience.

I apologize for the game being off. The coin mech jams several times a day and I was not there to address it last night, sorry about that. Beers and a few games on me next time.

#1393 3 years ago

Per state mandate, all games at Helicon will be powered off from today, 12/12/2020, until Monday, 1/4/2021. Thanks to everyone for the understanding and support and we will see you all soon.

No worries and I still had fun playing the other games. R&M is the only new game I haven't played yet and with Gov Dipshit shutting down the state for 3 weeks I figured that was my last chance to play until after the new year.

#1395 3 years ago

Onto more positive things. Delayed Helicon Open.....maybe in the Spring......maybe?

#1396 3 years ago

I am so going to miss the helicon open. My 7 year old was poised to play this year.

Most importantly we all hope everyone is staying safe and we certainly hope to see all of you again once all the restrictions are lifted.

Keep in mind Helicon is still selling to go beer and I believe there will still be good trucks on site during the weekends. I know I will be out to support chrisb, the raspberry wheat is on.

Helicon Brewing will be back open tomorrow for indoor drinking and pinball. We ask that folks wear a mask, leave an open game in between other players, make liberal use of the available hand sanitizers, and use good common sense in general.

Also, I have a Bill of Lading that says Led Zeppelin (Pro) will be arriving tomorrow...

#1399 3 years ago

I’m looking forward to getting back in the building for some pinball and brews.

So apparently there is a difference between the delivery date listed on the Bill of Lading and reality. The tracking website updated this morning to indicate the delivery will be tomorrow, Wednesday 1/6. My apologies to anyone planning on coming out today to see it.
