Quoted from Whysnow:

will hyatt house rooms get a block at some point?
I already reserved but at a higher price and they said I could just flip it to the block room price once the show takes care of that...

Same here, booked at higher rate at Hyatt house. Hopefully there will be a show code to get a discount.

Quoted from callaway15:

How busy is this show? Do you have to wait long to play the good newer games? I’ve heard some comments about lines of people 10 deep. Is this true?

Nah, only for alien was it ever that deep. One or two deep for most games.

Reveal or no reveal, tpf is always a fantastic show. It literally has it all.

Quoted from rkahr:

The deal is they are a bad deal (or perhaps a "borderline scam") for visitors. The rental car companies use the toll roads as a source of revenue. Here is what is on the toll road web site about the topic: https://www.ntta.org/custinfo/tolltag/tolltagrentalcars/Pages/default.aspx
And here is what it ends looking like to a traveller looking through their rental car agreement: https://thepointsguy.com/guide/avoid-rental-car-toll-charges/ . This year I'm going to tell google maps to avoid toll roads.

I agree, E-ZPass should have been a national standard. Our rental company is charging 3.95/day, which is not outrageous, but still annoying. I'm not sure you can avoid tolls from the airport. At least the cost of renting a car in Texas is cheap, at least compared to Chicago, where it's double the price.

Separately, we have been gearing up our inventory for the show and will have a heavily modded maiden pro in our booth on free play, so please stop by and check it out. If anyone knows they want any of our mods at the show, please let us know beforehand so we can put it aside. While we will have most of our mods available, they will be in limited quantities, unfortunately.

Quoted from Platypus:

So my wife has a little box mounted on the windshield which serves for her pass in four states when she drives back home to new york. Can we bring that along and use it in TX? is there some registration process?
We are flying into Austin and spending a few days before Dallas and then back to Austin before we fly out and car rentals are cheap unless they wack you with extra fees.

Nope, that’s ezpass, not compatible with the system in Texas.

these are the last few days to let us know if you want anything pre-ordered for show pickup, splitters, trough and backboard lights, POTC chest lights, Munsters mods, MBR mods, key fobs, decals, and just about anything else on our site. After Sunday, our bags will be packed. Lermods.com

Quoted from vireland:

Kim Keist from Kimball's Pinballs will have an Iron Maiden Premium there decked out with all the Pin Monk colored brackets AND the final 3D Anubis installed. If you want to see what it looks like in real life, look for his machine (one of three Maiden Premiums on the list).
Here's one from a Pro with added uplighting (the Premium has a factory flasher):

We will have a few of the lens mode brackets available for sale in our booth.

Quoted from jfh:

I would have liked to see most of the vendors in another room, just because of the noise. As attendees we can come and go to take a break from the noise. A lot harder for the vendors to do. And there were a number of vendors/booths I would have liked to spend more time at but many times it was just too hard to hear.
I’m sure there are pros/cons to the combined vs. separated approach and don’t really know what would be best. I thought TPF was set up well and fairly easy to navigate (except the American Pinball area).

As a vendor, we don’t want people leaving the room or to be isolated from the rest of the show. We much prefer everything in a single room. It wasnt too loud where we were and I was able to sneak off every now and then to play a few games while my better half managed the booth.

It was one of our best shows ever, paying the price for that today.

Was nice to see our customers, meet new people and put faces to pinside names. Loved every minute of it, even at 12:45 am Saturday morning manning the booth until the close at 1am. That was a 19 hour day for us.
