Quoted from dmbjunky:

Any leagues started up in Indy?
I wish Bloomington had more of a scene.

Pinvault has a league that formed earlier in the year. I just got on the sub list:

Quoted from RDReynolds:

Over at the Skyline Drive In (an AWESOME legit drive in movie theater) are four more:
Jurassic Park
KISS (Bally)
Iron Man Vault

My wife and 2 kids headed over there tonight. What an awesome place! Really enjoyed the atmosphere. Loved the mounded parking to get the viewing angle just right frim the car.

We got there early and had the Skycade to ourselves. My 4 year old loved the "Fun Chicken" prize machine. My wife and 6 year old son liked the Iron Man. I had a blast with the Jurassic Park. Was really pumped to play KISS, as it is the same vintage as my Mata Hari, but it wasn't crediting quarters. The Stargate had a stuck right flipper, but seemed like a pretty fun game otherwise. It was also my first time to try "Green River" cola.

Quoted from Grayman_EM:

Anybody know of any old school EM's around Indianapolis or close by?

Grayman_EM there are plenty at mainstreet amusements in lafayette. Bob Skinner also has a few en route but i am not sure where they are at the moment. He usually keeps his locations up to date on the pinmap app.

Between Pinvault, Centerpointe, Round Town, the Sinking Ship, and Tappers, pinball is alive and kicking in this town! Not 5 years ago it was impossible to find a group of machines on location. You were lucky if you found 1. Thanks to all of you who are bringing the machines back out of basements!

bud your tappers machines are gorgeous! How do you get your metal siderails and lock down bars so clean?

Also, wish the flippers were slightly adjusted up so flipper catches are more likely. I think they are supposed to be adjusted so the upper flipper surface are in-line with the adjacent guards or so they touch touch a toothpick stuck in the little holes below the flippers when the flipper rubbers are on.

Quoted from Bud:

Thank you, I adjust the flipper bats with rubber on to be inline with the ball guides, as far as flipper cradling, it’s all about the coil stop. There are 3 different sizes from the 80s to the end of the Bally/Williams machines. The wpc95 had the shortest strokes due to deeper coil stops.
Let me know what pins specifically you are talking about and I’ll check it out

Cool. Thank you for putting your imaculate machines out in the wild.

Flipper bats: Indiana Jones, Theatre of Magic, Circus Voltaire were the ones i noticed the most.
