ed_in_texas block out the rooms for TPF 2019!
My money is burning a hole in my pocket
Quoted from parsonsaj:
Wow last year I was able to book a room at the TPF rate way later than this... amazing to me that the block is already gone! Surely they will make more rooms available????
One would think.
I tried booking for 2019 at the show but their computer wouldnt book that far in advance.
Other than that, what is the next closest hotel if I dont get a car?
Are there any fun or interesting restaurants near by?
Maybe entertaining ones? lol
Quoted from Zavadoza:
We are looking forward to Omi Korean Grill and BBQ in Carrollton. It's a 15 min drive from TPF. All you can eat steak and galbi ribs (and other meats) with a grill in the middle of your table. Decently priced too.
Here are some pics from our visit in December.

That looks awesome!
Big lebowski, stuck ball lol
Munsters is awsome!
Still playing Oktoberfest it's a lot of fun!
I had to leave at 1:30 to catch my flight out.
Were the dates for TPF 2020 announced?
I had awesome time at TPF 2019!
I thought the flowy layout was really nice. If you wanted to play munsters or Oktoberfest and the lines were long, there is always a game hidden away with no line somewhere else.
I liked that the vendors were mixed into the action, something to look at on every corner!
We had a blast!
Definitely coming for TPF 2020!
Are the dates announced?
I'm thinking march 20-22 2020?
By looking at the calendar...?
Quoted from Bublehead:
I took my wife and 21+ old nephews to TPF for the first time this year and everyone had a blast. Waits were there on some machines, like already reported, but we all got to play what we came to play, and we played a lot of pinball we hadn’t expected to play too. Vendors had plenty of wares, there was fun, drama, and more pinball than you will see at any other show, except maybe Expo, and although the vibe is different, the experience of Expo and TPF are very similar. Pinball takes over a major hotel for a weekend of fun. The organization is different, the weather is different, the people are different, but there are enough recognizable faces to let you know you are in the middle of the pinball universe for a couple of days each year when you attend either event. I have been going to Expo off and on for over 25 years, but now TPF is permanently inked into the calendar as well. Kudos to the organizers and sponsors for such a great festival. For anyone who did not stay at the Embassy, we stayed at the Legacy Marriot and would recommend it for those looking for a little peace and quiet away from the constant press of the crowd. Not that that is a bad thing, but when you spend the entire day with a room full of pinheads, a quiet dinner, a soothing, relaxing nights sleep, a wonderful breakfast buffet, and you are ready to go elbows deep back into it the next day. The drive over is easy, no main roads to fight traffic on, and it was the only closest, nicest, Marriot with vacancy
I'm curious what the attendance numbers were.
It seemed busier than last year and was much harder to book a room anywhere within walking distance.
A lot of Munsters at the show. They played like William's games.
Not Stern-like at all.
I was pleasantly surprised.
But I think Oktoberfest was the sleeper that stole the show.
Really fun game.
That and the incredibly restored Diner, what a joy to play.
With all the people playing Houdini, it might be time to do another run on them. The guys I talked to in line had zero complaints. All had a great time.
