    The Mandalorian was just added at Ocelot Brewing today!

    For those not paying attention to Ocelot's game list - that means they now have the last three Sterns (Mando, LZ, AIQ), the latest JJP (GNR) and the latest American Pinball (Hot Wheels) along with some other nice games.

    Last week MOM's Organic Market in College Park, MD went through a pretty major lineup change, inheriting some games from the now closed VUK and sending some games to their location in Abingdon, PA.

    IN: Monster Bash CE, Spiderman VE, Attack From Mars - SE, Iron Maiden Premium, Black Knight SOR Premium, Jurassic Park Pro, Game of Thrones Pro, Walking Dead Pro, Deadpool Pro, Hot Tip EM, Flash Gordon

    OUT: Twilight Zone, Simpsons Pinball Party, Taxi, Star Trek, Iron Man, World Cup Soccer, Houdini, Dr. Dude

    I think I got it all correct, but if not please revise the PinMap location data - as I updated as I have it above.

    Crabtowne got their Mandalorian pro yesterday! Had a fun reveal party last night with almost 50 people.

    Just came back from playing pinball at Ocelot Brewing in Sterling. All I can is WoW. NEW games that I had much fun playing. Led Zeppelin played the way the one at MoMs did out of the box, but doesn't play like anymore. I got a score replay on GNR and several airballs that I thought was going to break the glass on left side. I really really like playing the Mandalorian. My son and I had the whole room to ourselves. At $1 per play, I dropped a lot of coin, but it was worth it!!! The cute bar maid recommended a beer. I don't usually drink beer. I asked for a Jack n Coke, which I knew they would not have. It made me feel all good inside and tipsy too. "Gravity Always Wins (Red Wine Barrel Aged) Scotch Ale / Wee Heavy". I wanted to like the HotWheels, but did not. Although it was over an hour drive to get there, I will be back, when I am on buisness near Dulles Airport.

    Got to play Mandalorian at Crabtown today. Great game that is going to do well on location. I am by no means a good player but got on the leaderboard the first game and set the GC on my second. I know it will not stand but it is fun while it lasts.

    Crabtowne be slacking

    We put up 300+ day one. Then a good player came in and put 600+ in on his first visit.

    A good run of the right mode, plus mb, plus a multipler stack will blow this game up. I got 150m in midhorn alone one game.

    Wonder if Scott sill buy mando yet for Moms so we can have total area coverage for the game

    Stopped by Barcade in Philly yesterday. Nice place with some good beers on tap.

    I’m going to guess that moms gets a premium/LE. I don’t think Scott sits this one out.

    #63 3 years ago

    Awesome awesome.thread! Now following!

    Was at ocelot couple weeks back. Played Mando. G'n'r. Played Mario! That was cool. Enjoyed it. Star wars comic book looks GREAT! Awesome setup AT Ocelot. But flynnibus can you turn the sound up on g'n'r? Mando was way overpowering it.

    Loved hot wheels as well. my buddy Tim has one down here in Fredericksburg VA. Lots of great pins spots in F'burg.

    #64 3 years ago

    Reclaim Arcade is the #1 spot in Fredericksburg (and surrounding area). Just helped line the pins up early this week. 50+ classic arcade games. 80s living room with working Atari. Party room for your gatherings as well. Place has it all.

    Tim keeps the games up (I help some) and he really loves the place. Fully operational now and kicking and packed every night! You gotta come visit. Right now it's BYOB and food.

    Pin lineup

    AIQ PREMIUM w/pinstadiums
    GOTG pro (nicest I've ever seen. Pinstadiums, powder coated, etc)
    Stranger things pro (with glowies, uv kit, and extra uv lights. Clears on slings as glowie popped this week)
    Ghostbusters premium
    Alice cooper's nightmare castle
    Total nuclear annihilation
    Hot wheels
    Back to the future

    Also in Fredericksburg.

    Maltese Brewery has about 10 pins with Mando, g'n'r and alien coming in the next couple weeks as well. 3 strike tourney every Wednesday.
    Currently at Maltese Brewery:

    Jurassic park pro
    TMNT pro
    AIQ pro
    Stranger things premium
    Twd pro
    Terminator 2
    Fire!
    Evil knevil (that mad mike rebuilt and looks amazing)
    Black rose
    Sinbad

    Strangerthings brewery right up the road from Maltese also has pins. James keeps them up and has been upgrading.

    Currently at Strangeways:
    Deadpool pro
    Batman : The dark knight
    Whirlwind
    Ghostbusters pro

    Might be another one there but can't remember. Usually has 3 strike tourneys on Sunday afternoons

    #66 3 years ago

    Love Mom's. Best place around with number of pins they offer. 50¢ for everything. Even jjp pirates and hobbit. And clean. Reclaim Arcade is also the best and super clean. (I'm biased haha) Reclaim is pay to get in and freeplay all day

    Crabtowne is fun but usually crowded, and the pins aren't kept as nice. But with the traffic in there it's be impossible. I saw earlier the gentleman that works on them posted. Kudos to you man! That's a tough job.

    Ocelot is amazing with great pins.

    Solace Brewery is great as well. The outpost has a g'n'r also but the scoop goes sdtm every. Single. Time.

    If you ever get to Roanoke the pinball museum is a must! Nick runs it and is on pinside often.

    Precarious in VA beach is cool. Good beer too.

    Bingo beer in Richmond has a EHOH but last time I was there it was off. There pins have gone down in upkeep lately.

    I travel a lot so I'm always looking for places!

    I need to get down to Richmond and go to the warehouse with 16 pins. He seems like a great dude.

    Led Zeppelin Pro at Inkwell in Charles Town, WV. Right up the road from the casino.

    #72 3 years ago

    Planning on hitting up crabtowne tonight! No leagues or anything there on Fridays right?

    Also say this Holy Frijoles in Baltimore? Anyone familiar? Gonna try there too as they have some other games I want to play.

    #73 3 years ago

    Crabtowne Mando played flawless. No rejects up the left ramp. All components worked well. Great machine. The pins there are in good shape compared to a couple years ago when I went.

    Holy Frijoles had some good games. Namely Indiana Jones. Had never played one and spent about and hour on it. Totally worth it. Lighting was dark but the game played 100% from what I could tell.

    But.... Their pinball room was hot af! No ventilation. No breeze. Smelled like a frat house. Sweating while playing pinball. And the food was subpar.

    #74 3 years ago

    Stopped by Mustang Sally Brewery today in NOVA.

    GREAT BEER! Wow. Ended up buying 3 (very expensive) 4 packs!

    Mando pro and g'n'r se are there. Play great. Also Oktoberfest. Played great also. First time playing that machine and was fun.

    Great location. Pins well maintained. Check it out!

    Scott Hudson
    804-5I3-7I53

    Stopped by Scott's place tonight. And I didn't ever want to leave.

    Swords of Rage has its own room! Amp hooked up, sub rocking. Amazing. Every game is suuuuper clean and bright and working like they are HUO. UNREAL setup! Just incredible. All the volumes are up nice so you can get into the game. I even enjoyed Wonka and I dislike that game. It, and all of them, was just so well taken care of. He seriously has the nicest Twilight Zone you will EVER see or play.

    And the decor in the place is just great. Playfields everywhere. Posters, banners, stickers. Cannot do it justice on here. It's a MUST location stop.

    Scott, your machines are top not, immaculate, and amazing! Thank you for having this in the pinball community. I can't wait to stop by again soon!

    I just was driving by the trampoline entertainment place in Franklin Farm shopping center (Chantilly) and saw Automated Services from Connecticut delivering something. I do not know if it is pinball or arcade stuff.

    It's likely video or redemption equipment if it's for a trampoline park.

    I was up at Mustang Sally's this past weekend and had great fun playing there lineup of games including the new Mando and GNR. They have added food since I was last there. Delishous Sausages, Brats and Dogs on Pretzel buns and lots of toppings. I included a menu for those hungry while playing and drinking beer. Lots of friendly people there too.

    great lineup. and even better beer. On vacation in OBX right now and made sure to get a few packs of their beers to enjoy while im here! MS is now one of my go-tos when I travel through that area.

    I recently was in the Sterling, Northern VA area for a few nights and was able to check out the Ocelot, Mustang Sally, and Solace pinball action. I'm from Central Maryland and I can't think of one brewery that has pinball, and in this area there are 3 within a few miles! All of the machines were in very good condition (except GNR at Mustang Sally had issues with the disc getting stuck and the third flipper was so weak it could barely move the ball, also the playfield had the worst pooling I've ever seen). I was really happy to finally check out Oktoberfest and Hot Wheels on my trip. Both were really fun, but I preferred Oktoberfest - really enjoyed it. The music would be a deal breaker at home, I think I'd go crazy if I had to listen to it all of the time. This trifecta of breweries is definitely worth a trip to the area for pinball fans.

    I recently picked up an OKT. Couldn't pass up the deal and it's turned out to be an incredible game for home use. Rules and shots are great.

    #84 2 years ago

    Dropped my son off at Camp Greentop, Thurmont, MD. On the way home stopped at Spinners Pinball in Frederick. Was unimpressed by the outside signage and location in industrial area. However, when I got inside and paid my $30 for two players. For all the pinball I could play, for as long as I wanted. I tried to play them all. There were so many pinballs, I lost track. The super HUGE Hercules game with giant everything was an experience. The ball is billiard cue ball. The pop bumpers were the size of tea cup saucers. The wife and I had a great time. She beat me many times, esp. on Jurassic Park. Would recommend to anyone going near Frederick to search it out.

    So happy to have found this thread. I'm a regular at CrabTowne, Mom's Organic in College Park and, for a field trip, Pinball Gallery, north of Philly. Also decrying the loss of VUK, not only for the pinball, but also the pizza. My Jersey wife said it was the best pizza she found outside of NYC.

    Unlike many of you, my favorite games are mainly EMs, so I enjoy the museums and places where they feature some of the older games. Silverball Museum in Asbury Park on the Shore is worth the trip.

    Hey folks. Nic from RPM here still working overtime like a madman.

    Great thread! So cool to see so many awesome pinball venues in the mid-Atlantic that I'd love to visit. My peeps back in Texas can drive for DAYS and not find half as many pinball halls as we have here. Though they do have quite a few prodigious private collections to enjoy.

    As for RPM, we're angling for more "museum" than most, so our 65-ish games span 1932-present with plenty of EM's mixed in. I have to cater to an extremely wide range of guests because we are part of a larger arts & culture foundation and tourist destination. Pinheads & barcade visitors are actually in the minority here. Tourists and curious guests outnumber us, so I tune the collection for a more mass-appeal experience (but with enough special treats for us mixed in).

    We want to get back to our "Get Tilted" bar nights with contests and prizes but, you know, pandemic and all that. *sigh* so many plans ahead.

    Coming up on August 22nd we will have an officially-sanctioned IFPA tournament. Y'all game?

    Ko will be very happy that you're showing the high score that he made last night.

    Wasn't there a place near Crabtowne called the Volleyball Field, Court, Hous or something?? I know they had a league.....

    Not a whole lot of places to play in Baltimore County, I wish the Mom's in Timonium would ship in some pinballs - we are sorely lacking in pin action here.......

    Great thread, will check out the Frederick location, that's about the closest 1hr drive aside from College Park, but I'm not a fan of driving down around that congested area.

    There was also a smallish arcade with lots of EM machines located to the NE of York, PA - there was a small "main street" type town, and one of the buildings there was a pinball showcase. Anyone know about that place and if it's still there?

    On a side note, anyone that services machines, do you ever do "side jobs" for people tearing out their hair over maintenance issues that are escaping "solveability?" I've got a magnet gremlin on GoldenEye that I need to fix before I end up in the crazy house.

    Peace, Nate

    Baltimore county sucks because the per game permit is $270/ year, plus you have to give 10% of gross revenue to the state.

    Half of nothing is nothing. Go to round 1 in Towson or Frijoles in hampden.

    Per game! Wow, yeah that's ridiculous. No wonder we don't have any around here!!

    Round 1? I'll check it out.

    Been to Fijoles, haven't been since they had that fire however.......

    Went to Ocelot Brewery today (Chantilly, VA area). Games are all well taken care of. Stranger things was off. Glad to see a great working Twilight Zone and a Frankenstein. Super Mario Bros, is always more fun than I think it will be. Beer is good too!

    Revolution Darts & Billiards is also in that area. 4 games. Metallica pro, Mando Pro, Iron Maiden pro, and Avatar. All $1 play except Avatar at 75¢. So all are over priced except Mando for now. They all played well. Avatar was hard as hell and has one power ball in it. At 75¢ it's 1/3 too high. Metallica is one of the best examples I've played, but not worth $1 a play anywhere. Food was good there and had some local beers in cans/bottles. Nice place.

    Maybe I'm just spoiled here in Fredericksburg, but $1 to play if not a brand new game is not cool. Not to mention games that are 3+ years old....

    Thanks for the compliment!

    I fixed Stranger Things today. Bushing was busted in half.. I guess 226k flips isn’t too shabby.

    Yeah.... luckily volleyball house was literally 100 feet over the Baltimore county/Howard county line (on the Howard side, of course). Can’t blame Judy for selling though.... apparently developers threw big money at her for the property.

    Ah, so that's why it was located "out of the way" - I got it. Hadn't heard they sold it, but yeah, if the price is right, you most likely will say "yes."
