Quoted from Butch2099:

Anyone know how many pins fit in a 26 foot straight truck? Trying to plan our day tomorrow. Not sure if we're going to need one trip or two

I just did this today. Depends on what games your bring and how. I prefer to keep them on their legs for easy on and off with no damage. 14 to 17 is what I've done. On their backs, different story. 25 to 27 can be done. 27 is a stretch but I pulled it off. I was pretty sure I couldn't get a nats ass in there that day.

I recommend multiple trips. Setting up all those games to save a trip would be a back breaker. I suspect you'll be looking for some pain med Friday morning.

See you tomorrow.

If you guys are looking for the 7th layer of hell it's the Allentown Walmart. They don't sell beer there either.

That's PA for you. The best place to get a case is Shangy's on Lehigh Street. Wegmans also has a good variety of 6 packs.

#868 1 year ago

Shangy's is a destination all it's own!! It's DaBomb!!

#870 1 year ago

I'm pretty excited for my first Pinfest. I was only introduced to pinball about 6 weeks ago and I'm already hooked. Luckily for me, I live about 20 minutes from the Allentown Fairgrounds! Safe travels everyone!

#871 1 year ago

Hey I'm going to be staying overnight Friday and was wondering if there's anything to do in Allentown once Pinfest wraps up for the day?

Quoted from VectorGamer:

Based on what I've read in this thread, I think some people are gathering at one of the hotels. Other than that, there are plenty of bars/restaurants, the Sands Casino in Bethlehem, depends on what you want to do. I'm sorry if that wasn't very helpful. I'll be at home with a cold beverage.

#873 1 year ago

If anyone needs the address of the fairgrounds it is 1825 West Chew Street Allentown PA 18104.
I think some of the GPS sites get goofy when you put 17th and Chew

#874 1 year ago

Yeah on Lafayette between chew and liberty. I was looking at that racetrack that Waze took me to wondering where I went wrong.

#876 1 year ago

#877 1 year ago

The fairgrounds is tough to miss! It's giant and in the middle of town!

Hey anybody at the Comfort Suites setting up a game/party room?

Starting to feel left out what with Delaware's massive party plans at the Ramada, we can match this shit. I have some barrel proof bourbon.

#879 1 year ago

I have arrived at my hotel!
(You needed to know that!)

As others have mentioned, outside of bars/restaurants and the casino, we are shaping up to have one helluva “first ever” after party at the Ramada. We have an entire lounge room to ourselves and we will have several pins setup to play all night long. And drink of course. You do NOT have to be staying at the Ramada in order to join in on the fun.

Ah, Pennsylvania, where you can't buy beer and liquor in the same store and is taxed extra due to a flood that happened in 1936.

At least they're coming around. My favorite beer take out is my local ACME.

Quoted from Whysnow:

1500 Macarthur Road
Whitehall, PA 18052

Time - TBD. Show ends at 9, so my guess is around 10 until we all pass out?

Call or text me details.

So need feedback from people coming to the party room.

Would everyone be OK with 2 BSD’s?

Depends, do they bring their own whips and flogging equipment?

#888 1 year ago

Set them up side by side, place bets on who can get mist multi first, a scream of 30 mil. First, etc. etc.

Quoted from mtbpinball:

So that picture is a bit forced perspective with the angle having the trailer closer to the camera than the van... but I’ll admit it does still look absolutely ridiculous in real life... almost 1000 pounds under the tow rating when loaded with my pins though. Easy 200 mile tow today, zero issues.

I entered 302 North 17th Street,Allentown PA. on my Waze app.and it accepted this address. Should I change it to the 1825 West Chew Street Allentown PA.18104 that you provided?

#894 1 year ago

For anyone go hasn't seen or played orbitor 1 before, it's a real treat to see one at a show. There is also a few zaccaria games, such as a very nice farfalla, a time machine, and a couple others.

Dammit. Was going to pick up a case of Two Brothers Pinball beer. Hit three stores tonight and could only scrounge up a six pack.

#899 1 year ago

Looking very forward to the show tomorrow! Cant believe its been an entire year. Is I-78 west still good to take into PA? I heard about traffic. Our booth (#14) will be packed with the usual. Looking forward to seeing everyone, going to the farmers market, checking out the new tournament, and walking through the free play area.
