Quoted from spfxted:

Maybe we'll pick a day during a weekend and all meet up!

I hope you guys can work it out. It's always nice to meet new Pinsiders!

Quoted from Sethman:

Super stoked to check out the lineup this year. Let me know if a pinsider meet up is happening, I'll make my way out for a trip.
Got to meet PinballJon a couple weeks ago, him and Brandon, great guys!

It was great meeting you too! Hope Scared Stiff is working well for you!

Quoted from tp:

midweek is just priceless if you can make it happen.

Midweek is by far the best time to go. The lines aren't nearly as bad, and you can get a handstamp for the rides instead of using tickets all day.

And JeffZee, I love the pics!!!

Quoted from JeffF:

Will the WoZ redemption game still be there? It's a really decent time killer.

It sure will!

Quoted from spfxted:

Looks like I'll be at Knoebels on Monday the 21st. Probably afternoon.

Just updated WOZ with the 4.0 code so you'll be able to try it out. Have a great time and enjoy the park!

Quoted from spfxted:

The trip was fun! Party was great! Food was outstanding.
Went to the Park on Monday and it was STILL pretty full! Played WOZ (wow!) They also had Star Trek LOTR, Twilight Zone...

Glad to hear you had a great time, and I love the pics!

Quoted from asay:

They are bolted to the floor, so it makes nudging a little more difficult.

They're definitely not bolted down....

Quoted from asay:

Theater of Magic/Pirates of the Caribbean in the smaller arcade were when I was there a few weeks ago. Now that I think about it the floor in playland is concrete so those machine probably aren't bolted.

Ummm...nope, not them either. Honestly, I don't even know how you would bolt them down. But here's a couple pics for you nonetheless. image.jpgimage-756.jpgimage-386.jpg

Quoted from spfxted:

Aarrggghhh! I didn't realize there WAS a smaller arcade!

Sorry you missed them! I assumed you knew they were there or else I definitely would have mentioned it to you. Well, now you'll just have to make another trip

Quoted from Philk:

Come on Jon be honest, there's gum underneath those level levelers right? jk

Dang it Phil, you caught me!

BTW: I was 30 million off from beating your Grand Champion score on TOM tonight....one of these days buddy, one of these days! Haha

Those are great pics JeffZee!

Also, I see several people have been asking about the Covered Bridge weekend and Hallo-Fun nights. I'm happy to say that Playland will be open this year for both events! I've posted the info for the fall events below. The last day for the summer season is Labor Day, and then it's weekends through October (Last day for 2014 is Oct 26).

Here's the info for the fall events:

Covered Bridge Festival: Dates: October 2-5
Hours: Thurs-Sat 10:00-6:00 Sun 10:00-5:00

Quoted from JeffZee:

My October is already full, but I'll make a point to get to a Hallo-Fun night for 2015.
Jon, are there any pictures showing the evolution of the Knoebles arcades over the decades (especially the pin line ups)? Did any arcade equipment survive the big floods?

I'll have to see if there's any pictures from the past. We have a few around there, but nothing extensive. Surprisingly enough, a lot of equipment survived the big floods. There's a lot of games in there that have made it through more than one flood. I posted about the flood of 2011 on RGP at the time. I just found it and provided a link below. The 3 pins that were in the arcade at the time all survived the flood and are going strong today. POTC and LOTR are still there and have work like a charm, and Avatar, which we sold over the winter, also worked very well for us. I didn't expect the pins to even turn on, but I was very surprised to see how much equipment was able to be saved. There's a link in the RGP post to pics, and I'll put that direct link below too.

Just wanted to take a minute and thank all those that came out this season, shared pics, or added posts to the thread. It's always nice seeing familiar faces as well as meeting some new folks along the way, and the pics and posts were great! The pins will be torn down, cleaned up, and repaired over the winter, and hopefully we can make a change or two to the lineup as well. Thanks for a great season and we'll see you in the spring!
