    Set a machine for the kids to play at youth group tonight. My daughter goes to Wednesday night group at our church so I offered a loaner for them. There was a line before I could finish setting it up. Was nice seeing kids enjoy some pinball.

    It's new and novel. In a couple of weeks take the same picture and see if there is anyone around. I could be wrong and might be surprised, I'm just going by my own personal observations about kids, including my own. It is fun to see the little ones excitement light up when they see them the first time.

    Ur not wrong and u won't be suprised. people love to play my pins but not a one young or old go out to play on site or have a desire to purchase. This is nice but not gonna happen. Pinball dies with us. Plain and simple.

    I'd set the high scores super low and ensure they know how to enter their initials. That might keep them playing.

    Pinball "died" in the 90's, it's 2019. What makes the people playing now different than the people who will find pinball in 20 years? If anything, with our increasingly digital society, it could help pinball as tactile will feel more and more new and different.

    Well these kids only come once a week. There were more than 50 kids there. When I picked my daughter up 2 hours later there was still a line and 2 kids asked how much one costs. When I told him he was upset cause he couldn't get one for his house. They asked if they make smaller ones. Lol. They may get tired of it, but that has not been the case with the air hockey table and foosball that are there. If they do, it will likely be the adults lined up. Things are a little different up here. Most of these kids are home schooled and still do outdoor stuff.

    Great pin for kids to learn on! My younger cousins love my F14 tomcat and cant get enough of the flashing lights, sounds, etc. Pinball isn't just an old guy thing, it will live on and on and on.
