    I am in the middle of opening up my own location and want to get some feedback on how we primarily find our favorite places to play pinball.

    I personally found my current hangouts just through word of mouth. I now search pinmap when looking for new places to play

    If you voted "other" I'll be real curious to know how you found your spot.

    Thanks for participating!

    My Mother saw an ad in the local newspaper and we went and bought it.

    LTG : )

    Facebook works good locally. If it’s fun, word of mouth spreads fast- being a highly visible location with good parking helps too.

    I live there.
    Oh, you mean other than at home.
    I'm not on facespace, so not for me. Make sure you have a real website.

    Because I live in a rural area the best local place to play pinball is right here at home.

    I found the place I am currently living / playing in by learning the neighbor to dads farm was selling. . . so I bought the property, rickety old house and all.

    Sign that said "retro arcade" with a graphic of an arcade cabinet in a restaraunt window near where I work. Went in and got hooked! Check Crabtown USA from Google Streetview.

    Shouldn’t Pinmap be added to the poll?

    Edited title to reflect on location pinball.

    Voting for pinside = pinmap
    Just to clarify.

    Quoted from WolfManCat:

    Voting for pinside = pinmap

    Not really the same thing, but I guess if you are voting on PS you can group it.

    #11 1 year ago

    Nothing in my area. I have had to use Pinside to find everything.

    #12 1 year ago

    what is 'pinball location'?

    #13 1 year ago

    Wish it was a multiple choice poll.
    I use the pinmap, but word of mouth is a close second.

    FB, Twitter, Instagram, Pinside and look locators all help. Put out your best games, and replace the ones with the least votes ($$) as you go. Validate them all

    Don't forget the Pinfinder app. I'm in Denver today and I would not have found Lyons Classic Pinball if I had just used the Pinmap app.
