Quoted from TopMoose:

Unpopular opinion: skip the chili and go to Graeter's.

Go to Skyline FIRST then to Graeter's for Tea Cookies and ice cream.

Great event! Thanks to everyone for putting on such a great show.

Tear down in action:

Quoted from RWH:

What a show! Just got home and it was a great weekend to say the least. I have to say the show went really well, pins were working and in good shape, all without having to wait very long. I think I only waited a couple times and it was for only a game or two despite a great crowd!

Well I, played over 15 games on Wonka today and I have to say I enjoyed it a lot. I did not get the impression it was cheap though, actually I thought just the opposite that it was better built than most (leave JJP out of it) of the newer pins. IMHO this is a very fun pin and would not mind owning one in the future.
Finally Thanks to Eric and jjsmooth for all their effort, it paid in spades guys it was truly a great time for all.

The more you play the more you’ll like it!

#856 7 months ago

Whew, what a great show! I'm a little whipped but I'm sure chuckwurt and jjsmooth are even more so, great job boys! Thanks to Whayne, Corey and everyone else who helped out, brought games, etc. Thankfully both of my games held up fine all weekend, someone finally found the Borg lock on STTNG at some point to get rid of the credit dot, it and GOTG both need a good shop job now.

#857 7 months ago

Thanks for the hard work everyone did to make this happen. I know it has to be hard to throw a pinball show and not even get a chance to play much.
BTW Camp Washington Chili is the best.

#858 7 months ago

Had a blast at the show thanks for putting it on guys!

#859 7 months ago

Thanks to chuckwurt and jjsmooth for putting on a fantastic show! I am exhausted. I'll be sleeping at work most the day today. Thanks to all that brought pins and helped out working the doors and helping with setup/tear down. Everyone did a great job. My vote for best pinball show! The Gauntlet was a blast to play. Next year I plan on taking Keith Elwin's Gauntlet title! Hopefully he will be there again to defend it.

Quoted from estrader:

I played my dialed in today and the feel of wonka from the machine itself to how the ball rolls does not feel like a jersey jack pin. I’ll say it again Chinese knock off was the feeling I got from wonka.

You know your right!I just played my Wonka and it plays just like my
Homepin Thunderbirds

WTH? Is that a grinder?

Sorry that I missed the show Erik. Was really looking forward to it. Surgery two weeks ago put me down, which I hadn’t planned for. Looks like it was a damn good time, and some cool games there to boot.

I couldn’t have driven, but if I knew Max was coming out on a spur of the moment, I would’ve tried to tag along with him. Was a day late on seeing that post.

Either way, I’ll make it a definite and block off time for next year, and bring a game or two with me.

#862 7 months ago

No worries man!

First weekend in December next year.

And yeah on jungle queen we had a head bolt stuck in a t nut and had to cut it off.

#863 7 months ago

I will join the chorus and say it again: great show, guys! I had a blast. Thanks to everyone who donates their time and machines to the show. I know it takes a lot of prep before, during, and after the show on each and every machine. You guys and gals rock!

Just added it to my calendar. See you then!

#865 7 months ago

Thanks to everybody who organized this event and to the people that brought their pins. I had an absolute blast. There were so many awesome people to meet, so much pinball to play.

And the kicker is I got the beautiful Oktoberfest machine that ZMeny had for sale. It was awesome that DanDanDan from American Pinball was there as well. Hope you made it home safely, thanks for the great time!

I can't wait for next year, this is an absolute Highlight in my calendar.

Fuck Gold Star. Skyline or Dixie chili for life.

I wouldn't feed Dixie chili to the dog. That shit is nasty!

Seems whenever you mention the word chili in Cincinnati you are going to start a war, but we all know skyline is the best.

Congrats on Oktoberfest. That was a good buy and one of the most popular.

I agree, havn't cared much for that game till I played it this weekend. One of my favs now.

#876 7 months ago

fxdwg Yep, that was my Getaway. Thanks for the compliment. Glad you enjoyed it; it’s probably my favorite of the 5 games I have. As for anything special done to it other than trying to keep it clean (that game gets dirty fast for some reason), I used Marco’s poly bands everywhere, modified the ball launcher a bit, and of course the LED treatment. Spotlights here and there to brighten things up.

I'm guessing its the supercharger because of a metal ball looping around metal ramps?

Quoted from Viggin900:

I think you’re right about the metal SC causing most of the dirt. It’s probably metal soot. My son and I set up all our games in our basement Monday night and while going over Getaway, I couldn’t believe how dirty it got since Thursday. I had just cleaned/waxed it last week before the show. I could literally see the dirt on the orange painted surfaces Monday night. Between Saturday morning and end of show Sunday, it had 360 plays (probably around 450-500 for the weekend total; forgot to check counter till Sat am). Got dirty fast! Totally worth it though. Glad to share it. Now it’s all clean again. The other games, no where near dirty.
