    I will go to US for the IFPA17 and then i have planned to fly to Chicago and from Chicago to New Jersey i was thinking to go by car, because i want to visit also some locations in between.

    I will fly back from to Europe from New York.

    I am interested in normal sightseeing hot spots which you recommend, but also in Pinball Locations (Museum, Barcade, Stores, etc.).

    It would be great if you can give me some hints and tips.

    Actual ideas are already
    - Cointaker
    - Pinball star
    - a friend in normalville

    so this is the actual planned google route:

    incl. a visit to Jersey Jack i have around 4-5 days time.

    Also recommendation for New York are great.

    Jersey Jack Pinball has a Chicago office too. You might ask when you are in New Jersey if you can visit that office too.

    Safe journeys my friend, have a safe trip and a great time !

    Here's a top tier place just down the road on your travels. (~45ish min): Wizards World (aka Fort Wayne Pinball, but really north of Ft. Wayne in Huntertown). +80 excellent and well maintained pins. Just a great owner and crew. Hop on I-69 at Angola, that highway will just about get you there.

    Rated a top ten pinball location, but I don't recall the rating criteria. Just about every Stern, some JJP & CGC, a boatload of the great 90's pins - Even a Cactus Canyon. Plus some ranging from the 60s-80s.

    What's dates are you are traveling?

    Stop by TNT amusements on your way to JJP. Just off the PA Turnpike.

    For American Food you want to try "Waffle House" and "Cracker Barrel". They will be all along the highways.

    It’s under an hour from Lakewood to Asbury Park. He is flying out of NY.
