Stopped in on Saturday. Great beer and pinball! Even better people!

Quoted from delt31:

Would love to see Deadpool make a return! Awesome to see alien for the masses to experience.

Deadpool is at our Helicon McDonald location only a few minutes away from the brewery. There are 15 games at our McDonald location definitely worth checking out! https://pinside.com/pinball/map/where-to-play/15098-helicon-brewing-mcdonald-mcdonald-pa

Quoted from Ranhorton:

Got to helicon and Alien is off. Bummer.
But the rest of the lineup is playing perfectly.

Sadly, there is an issue with the alien grabbing balls. Hope to get it fixed one day this week.

Sorry!

cjmjmm2006 is at it again! Not one, but two Toy Story 4 (LE) pins are available to play at the brewery! The second game will be around for a week or so before finding a new home to be announced. As always, much thanks to Chris M. for making this all happen.

Cheers,
Chris B.

Chris and Chris, let me know what the concensus is.

I got games #2 through 12ish on one of these machines. Canada Ramp shot goes through every time as long as you shoot between the posts. Hardest shot is the skill shot to start the game. Only got it once.

Chris and Chris, let me know what the concensus is.

So far it seems that if you like Wonka and JJP in general, you will love this game. I have heard several comments about it being on the easier side, which is definitely appealing for our casual crowd. As cconway84 mentioned in a previous post, the skill shot is a bit tough but most people don't know that you get three shots at it.

Cactus Canyon (Remake - LE) has landed! It will be streamed tonight by our friends at HUPChallenge if anyone is interested in a thorough dive into the game.
