    Take your time, use your blinker when changing lanes, stop for gas and rest room when needed.

    Do it.
    The Ohio Show has been a good time since the very 1st one.

    #6 4 years ago

    Personally I love the Ohio Show but I wouldn't drive 7 hours for it. The venue is more of a small comfortable size, feels a bit locally oriented, rather than nation-wide like Chicago Expo or ReplayFX. Plus the scheduling of the show being Thursday - Saturday (with Saturday as sort of a half day) means you'd likely have to take off work to make it out.

    So as much as I love the show and want to help it expand, I'd say in your case you might be disappointed if you planned out a long trip for this, and you would be better off saving your trip for a larger show.

    Yeah I love the show but its like around a hour drive.

    Its not a huge crazy show, But this year there will be Ghostbusters, Full Throttle, and Big Lebowski. Which may make the trip worth it.

    Plus you could find something cool to do nearby or on your way to do to make more of the trip.

    you might be disappointed or not.

    Regardless find me, Ill get you a beer and allegedly play some dollar games.

    I would not recommend driving for Saturday only. The games usually start clearing out unfortunately early. And there are probably the most people there that day.

    Save your time/money and come to Allentown...

    #11 4 years ago

    I go to Allentown every year I like the show but not as many deals. If you are looking for deals on game The Ohio show is one of the best place to pick up games.

    I'll be set up all day Saturday depending on the crowd of course. I spend the extra money for another days motel just so I can stay open longer on Saturday as the show requires of the vendors.

    Sweet. You always have a good selection of fun stuff to root though.

    Still have that transporter pf with harness you had a couple years back? Was super neat

    Nope sold it at the show that year (after two days of it being in the booth with a for sale sign on it) to some non pinhead guy that wanted to make a coffee table out of it.
    I tried selling it at Chicago's Expo a few months earlier and couldn't make it go away then either. What can you do?

    Are you bringing everything over from your warehouse/storefront?

    I'll never forget when I saw this. I turned the car around, got out and took the picture.

    I'll bet the ramps were warped/burnt though right? Please just say yes

    #23 4 years ago

    Sure thing Edison (shaking my head no...) they were burnt to a crisp and totally unusable.

    Ditto. I went to last year's show from NY because it was closer. It was OK, but it's not a show I'd drive seven hours for. Allentown is far better. Maybe last year's show was an anomaly, but if it's typical of the Ohio shows, I'd only go if it was within a couple of hours drive.
