    Wow that really sucks.

    TPF is becoming a serious show, hate to see them competing.

    Quoted from douggalecawitz:

    i wish. that place needs to be more decently photographed. and a walk through tour video (free of commentary for brevity's sake) would be nice.

    Here you go, I filmed this at the last event:

    » YouTube video

    Took me about an hour but I wanted to get all the machines. Also as far as accommodations go, avoid the Motel 6. I stayed there last time and it was gross.

    Quoted from chuckcasey:

    Last year it was required for Arcade Expo to move to March and St. Patty's day weekend was chosen, the weekend before TFP. TFP was the weekend following Arcade Expo and recognised as a growing and significant event. We knew it'd be a challenge for enthusiast to travel to both, even a weekend apart. Arcade Expo 4.0 dates were announced earlier this year and it appears that TFP needed to move to a weekend earlier for what ever reasons and earlier last week announced it would be the same weekend.
    The Museum of Pinball supports all pinball related events, even when they overlap with one of our events. We believe even when TFP or other related events chose to overlap with an event at the Museum of Pinball, we together support the hobby and fans of pinball together.
    And as you know, TFP and Arcade Expo are very different events. If you can not make it to Arcade Expo we respect your decision and hope you chose to attend one of our other events like Pinball Madness (pinballmadness.com in October 20-22, 2017) or "It Never Drains in Southern California (INDISC)" pinball tournament and festival (January 12-14, 2018).

    Arcade Expo 4.0: http://www.arcadeexpo.com/
    Thanks for your support to the non-profit organization of the Museum of Pinball. For 2018 the dates will unfortunately overlap since we began ticket sales over a month ago.

    I was not aware of INDISC, so thanks for pointing that out. That January time frame works best for me personally to plan a trip to California, so I'll look forward to attending that one!

    Quoted from chuckcasey:

    We are grateful for our volunteers that keep our 550+ pinball machines and 550+ arcade games working. Final count last Sunday was 28 volunteers.
    Our next TECH DAY is September 23-24 (yes, a TECH WEEKEND). The information sharing, networking, mentoring, expertise and friendships made are extraordinary. If you'd like to become part of the team we could use your help preparing for Pinball Madness and generally furthering the hobby and fans of pinball.

    Even though I can't make Pinball Madness going to try to make it to tech weekend. Been missing that place ever since Expo. Now if I can convince my wife...

    INDISC will be an "event" for both tournament players, causal players, spectators and enthusiasts. ALL the pinball machines will be ON FREE PLAY and the tournament room will take nearly half the arcade room, a very large and exciting improvement.

    Quoted from Azmodeus:

    i stayed minutes from banning cheaply. there was a nice hole in the wall breakfast place but good, too. both were right by smart and final.

    Was that the Holiday Inn located across the street from Smart & Final? (asking because I'm looking around for a place to stay during Pinball Madness).

    #57 3 months ago

    Yes that sounds right. Sorry it was the first banning I went and I to and I was super sick. My doctor said I was not contagious so I went. I didn't want to miss the first arcade expo.
    I unloaded on cold products to try to stay standing, at smart and final. The restaurant across the street from smart and final was cozy type food. Seemed to be a local favorite.

    The room was fine, we were barely there. It was moments from the expo.

    It looks promising.

    We have a wide range of choices for hotels. I suggest using hotels.com or similar. You can stay in Banning or one of the near by cities including Palm Springs. Depends if you're just looking for a comfy bed or a high end pool side hand out.

    Doesn't really matter when you'll spend so many hours surrounded by 1100 pinball and arcade games. I dare you to try to play them all!

    #60 3 months ago

    Concerning the overall playability of all those machines: it has been getting better and better I believe. It was really good at the last event which was Arcade Expo. For those who have never been there and are thinking about going it might be worthwhile to look at this thread where we discussed the expo. Have a look and see if you think we all had a good time. (Hint:WE DID)

    https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/arcade-expo-30-whos-going

    I've been there 3 times so far and I will go again for this one. Last time I played 80 different machines in one day, this time I'm going for 100!

    Quoted from PinballSTAR:

    Sent this to Chuck personally - but might as well ask the masses too... I'm thinking about doing Pinball Madness... might make it an escape weekend with my wife - I see how close it is to Palm Springs - any really nice resort places you can recommend there that maybe will help 'justify' a pinball trip to CA with my wife ? lol... you know what I'm getting at... Hey honey, let's go to a fancy Palm Springs resort to get pampered and OMG, will you look at that, there's a pinball show like 30 minutes away - wow, what a co-incidence ! lmao.... She'll know why she's going but I figured maybe take a weekend, see the museum for 1/2 the time and let her have her fun escape the other 1/2... Suggestions ?

    Palm Springs? That place is filthy with those kinds of resorts, seriously you could throw a rock from anywhere and hit 3 or 4 of them. Decide how much you want to spend and pick one, they all should be good. Most have nice spas. Marriott Desert Springs is a pretty good one I've been to many times. The Westin or Hyatt are nice. There are many others. La Quinta is a bit further out but really nice (pricier). You might still be able to get good rates at that time, basically everything goes cheap in the hot summer months and gets really expensive in the winter. Us cheapos from the LA area go there in the summer to stay in the fancy resorts and play golf for cheap. A $60 round of golf in the summer goes for $300-400 in the winter. They also seed the golf courses for summer and winter and that October timeframe is when they do the reseeding, that means resort rates might be a bit lower.

    More cool happenings have been added since I last posted. We'll now have a close up "walking" magician each night from around 5pm to 9pm. We've also added a highly acclaimed balloon artist each evening. All included in the price of admission.

    Have you finalized your costume yet? What are you going to be?

    Pinball Madness 1997. Maybe we should show this at our show. We have a great theater with a large rear projection screen.

    Can you tell us more about this auction in March?

    Quoted from Azmodeus:

    Can you tell us more about this auction in March?

    We've found doubles and basket cases, parts, cabs, working and non-working pinball machines we'll be auctioning. Not sure yet if it will be silent, live, one day, two days or what. Hold tight, we'll have details soon. We believe there are about 35 to clear out. We may even find some vids.

    I love me a good basketcase... looking forward to it.

    Does the indisc event have access to the same amount of games? January may work better for me as well.

    Bump in case I need to buy a plane ticket soon...

    Does indisc allow free play of the other machines?

    During the INDISC event all the pinball machines will be ON FREE PLAY. The arcade will be off.
    Your paid entry to INDISC will include tourniment entries and FREE PLAY on all pinball machines.

    Chuck thanks for answering questions here.

    Thank you chuck. To clarify you must play the tournament to play the machines? Also is it the tournament machines on free play or the entire list that was previously posted? Appreciate the reply. One way or the other I need to find a way to check this place out in the next six months.

    You do not have to play in the INDISC tournament if you pay your entry to the museum for the day/weekend. However, you can always do both—your "ticket" to the event will include some entries in the tournament. The only unavailable games on the list above would be those 12-15 set aside for tournament play.

    Ooo.. The time to play is just around the corner.

    The amount of volunteer hours put in since March has been amazing. So many great pins are back up to snuff and many running after years of storage. Many arcade games also got a new lease on life.

    Bring your wife and get her hooked!

    If she hates pinball dump her at casino Morongo so she can burn through your next pin purchase.

    My girl discovered slot machines this past weekend in Vegas. Thank goodness she was not bitten too hard. She enjoys slots, but her head will not let her gamble too much.

    Win, for me.

    I want to go to banning but I'm not sure it will work out. There is a crazy amount of activities in Southern California.

    This place kicks ass, California. Los Angeles, and everything else.

    Sorry to derail. See you around!

    You can make it for a few hours. It takes that long just to see the 1100+ plus games, walk the Haunted Funhouse Maze, listen to the bands, grab a burger and a beer, see some magic, attend a day of the dead wedding.....

    How is Banning CA doing in regards to air quality? i.e. wildfires in northern CA

    Quoted from Pinzzz:

    The fire up north are almost 500 miles away. I doubt they're having much of an effect. But the fire in Anahiem hills might be providing some problems though.

    This was Monday afternoon, and I'm 20 miles NW of where the fire.

    Went there yesterday, and the air quality was fine, but it was a bit windy though.

    My wife’s pulmonologist said it would be best to skip this trip due to air quality concerns.
    Her asthma could get out of control.

    I tried to get a refund for the Pinball Madness tickets for banning. I was e-mailed back that they don’t give refunds.

    I have 2 tickets (3 day pass) for sale at a discount. anybody can shoot me an offer.
    My cost was $190.00 for the two.

    I can fax, email or text the tickets or ticket. I guess I could also sell them separately.

    The barcode on the ticket is what allows entry.
    They can scan the barcode from your phone, or paper. so a text, email or fax will allow entry.

    #85 56 days ago

    Air quality was great yesterday, it would be a shame to miss it if you didnt have too...
    I took this photo at about noon yesterday just above the pinball museum...in fact you could see the museum from where I was standing, air quality was not a problem...

    I heard on the news there's a fir in Perris today. How is the air quality out that way today?

    #88 54 days ago

    Im only 15 min away from Perris. I can't even smell smoke. Banning is about twice as far.
