I don't own, work or have any affiliation at all with this business. Posting is a courtesy for Pinsiders or others near Co. Springs to update some relevant info including JJP and Stern pins on route there.

Arcade Amusements has a few newer Sterns on route including:

Ghostbusters Pro
Whoa Nellie

Other Sterns:

X-Men Pro

They also have many EM's, solid state, and DMD Bally, Gottlieb, Williams and a few other manufacturer pins including a Capcom Breakshot. Lots of classic video and guns games. Unfortunately some games play great, but many of the older games are hit and miss in how well they play and work.
Very excited and enjoyed seeing their Ghostbusters PRO and playing several games on it. Disappointed that TH LE has very old code, a ball got stuck in the spider area, flippers are on weak setting and game has very little incline and plays slow. This is true of several of their other pins that the games have very little incline to them.

If I was comparing TH versus GB PRO based on the two pins would certainly prefer GB. However have played TH with newer code and much better set up and like it a lot, although comparing these games as they are so very different is hard to do.

Address for those interested in checking the place out:

Oh there's also a TWD PRO there although I believe it's running an older code unless it's been updated recently.

TH running old code but I've been told they update it soon.

Someone needs to talk them into hosting a big, annual tournament!

I lived in Manitou Springs in the 80's and there was an arcade on Manitou Ave that also had a couple of water slides and trampolines. I wonder if this is the same place

Wish pinsiders could get together quarterly at least and maybe there once-twice a year at least. Some of their olrder pins need some TLC but most of the newer ones including GB PRO, Mustang and others play fine.
