    I wish I had more ceiling height. No toppers!

    Quoted from Nokoro:

    Are you able to lift your playfields for maintenance?

    I can put them all the way up if I take out the ceiling tiles. The DE back boxes are tight to the ceiling!

    #9843 1 year ago
    Quoted from GorillaBiscuits:

    Sick space! So inviting, love the panelling. Man, your gameroom is bigger than my house haha.

    I love the paneling also. It is real wood not printed. My wife wanted to paint it white. We agreed the cave was mine and upstairs was hers. It is dark but I just can't paint the wood! My first house was tiny. No pins there.

    Quoted from snakesnsparklers:

    I think you should add a Big Guns to your collection

    I am getting Houdini as soon as they ship. I stumbled onto a 1958 Double Action that I may wedge in next to Houdini. Have to move the slots to make room.

    Man oh man Mike love your set-up I’m a drummer too and also named Mike

    Bonzo!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Quoted from MustangPaul:

    You could always take that ceiling down and paint the joists flat black, that would really give you an open feeling.....and you'd be able to lift the pf's up then.

    The beams are right above the tiles. I would only gain an inch or two. It is full of insulation, wires and plumbing. It would be a lot of work to make it look good. I just move a tile to the side to lift the pf.

    Quoted from littlecammi:

    So then you're saying your game room can't be topped.

    I love my room but after looking at all the others on this thread I know there are better!

    #9875 1 year ago
    Quoted from davijc02:

    That’s some of the coolest shit I’ve ever seen! You have your own rink and Zamboni along with a collection of awesome machines. I almost forgot about the penalty box!!!!!!
    Wow, can I make my first Canadian trip to your house to experience the epicnesss? Truly an awesome space well done

    I totally agree! Fantastic rooms. That penalty box is great.

    #9892 1 year ago
    Quoted from Blitzburgh99:

    My modest space in current form.

    Modest but still a great space!

    Quoted from djreddog:

    Our game room gets a lot of play in general, not just pinball. So the basketball game, the 2 MAME arcades, and the pool table are staying. As it stands we have maxed out the basement and that leaves us with 3 options.
    1. 17 year old son may be going to college, so his room which is in the basement could become available.
    2. There is one unfinished room still in the basement, approximately 20x14 that we could knock down the non-supporting wall and expand into that room. This would require adding an outdoor storage shed to store all the existing stuff in this room.

    3. You have an awesome girlfriend who loves pinball, and comes to you one day and says I want one in the family room!

    Go with option 2!

    Quoted from presqueisle:

    Thanks, ‘56 United’s Star Slugger. Fun game.

    Great rooms! I like the grey carpet. That looks like something I will put in my room. I must get rid of the 38 year old gold carpet.

    Quoted from SNES:

    I do but it is one of those dead end into a wall kind of setups. Also includes a 90 degree turn. It would be almost impossible to get games down there. I can convince friends to help out with three steps, but I’d probably lose friends trying to get games into my basement haha

    Been there, done that

    Quoted from DUFUS:

    New ceiling decor added.

    I see your guests never leave!

    Then if you can figure out how to operate the secret door it reveals the rest of the Waldoplex.

    Most amazing game room ever. Great work!

    Quoted from Langless28:

    Anyone have a gameroom with lowish ceilings? ~6'-10"?

    I have 6' 7". My two DE just fit with 1/2" to spare. No toppers.

    #11074 1 year ago
    Quoted from ramegoom:

    Game room floor after the aluminum-flake-polyaspartic coating. Sort of like epoxy but more rugged. The floor was applied prior to the walls going up, to produce a clean trimmed look.

    Think you have enough room for 7?

    Or a muscle car. I'm gonna be working on mine in the nice heated garage/shop/Game Room II so the winters don't bother me.

    428 Cobra Jet?

    No, to heavy for road racing, Mexican block 302, 306 now.

    My sump pump is for the AC drain because my basement is below grade. We also have a whole house generator. Our power has gone out multiple times over the years. Plus my wife works from home. The generator was a great investment. No walk out here!

    Quoted from pinzrfun:

    Had about 60 people over this past weekend, figured i'd take some "before" pics while the game room was clean... everyone always likes the mad scientist bar...
    [quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

    That is one of the most impressive rooms I have seen. Great work!

    #11473 1 year ago
    Quoted from bob_e:

    you could put some vintage 70s audio equipment in the rack by the bar.

    My 70's audio gear still works. Have it in the wall in rack mounts.

    Nice to see you still have your Disc Washer.

    #11529 1 year ago

    I think I had a 9500 at one time also. Then I got the SAE power amp.

    I just replaced all the fluorescent lights in my basement. I put in 48" cool white LED lights. What a difference. It was dark with the low ceilings and the old bulbs. I had to move the Invisiglass around a bit.

    #11982 1 year ago
    Quoted from xfassa:

    Just when I thought no more could possibly fit....

    You must have a hard time deciding what to play on any given day. Great collection!

    Quoted from screaminr:

    Is it worth plugging your machines into a surge protector power board
    [quoted image]

    I unplug mine from wall during lightning. Only way to be sure they do not get zapped.

    #12579 9 months ago
    Quoted from MustangPaul:

    Why not just flip the breaker(s), that's what I do.

    I think the lights are also on my pin circuit. But also good!

    #12580 9 months ago

    I have mine plugged in to remote on off plugs so I don't have to crawl under the pins. I turn off all the time but unplug during lightning.

    Very nice room! Lots of room for more. Looks like an Olhausen table.

    #12910 8 months ago

    Looks great. Mine is natural hard rock maple.

    Quoted from JayDee:

    Nice! I bet that looks sharp

    Matches my Ludwig drum set. OCD. Check my profile page gameroom pics.

    #12914 8 months ago
    Quoted from JayDee:

    Very nice. Is that a 9 footer?

    Yes. Lots of room for long sticks. No height though for pinball toppers.

    #12922 8 months ago
    Quoted from seah2os:

    I may be wrong, but flipping the breaker only disconnects the common wire (black). On a lightning strike, couldn’t the neutral be positively charged and, thereby, fry anything plugged in, even on an “off” breaker?

    I always unplug from the wall during lightning.

    Quoted from jorge5240:

    While we are at it, I am manually turning off all power strips for my games, what is the best remote system to do so? I bought one a few year back and it failed over time. I would assume there are better options available now?

    I am using Etekcity ZAP 5LX remote outlet switches. Came with 5 outlets and 2 remotes. I Velcroed the switch to the wall. No more crawling under the pins. Has been working for quite a while.

    Quoted from grantopia:

    Just finished the LED job on JP yesterday so thought I'd get some new pics. Always get alot of questions on the table...its the side of an Atari Star Wars that I mounted to a table base that had a shelf, wine rack and drawers. Great for storage![quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

    Very nice collection. Looks great!

    Six minute walk-thru of my game room. Loaded with variety and oddball stuff, constantly changing.

    Amazing game room! Well done. Love the retro stuff.
