    Got a terrible job that forces me to travel to Hawaii and spend a week in Waikiki for a conference
    That's cool but I am not looking forward to the 24h+ travel in Economy class... terrible job, I swear...

    Sadly my wife cannot come. Good thing is: this means more time for pinball!

    Any suggestions for pinball places to visit? The public locations do not seem to have been updated for a least 2 years on the pin map.

    (PS : no I am not a tech... won't be helpful to repair a pin... will probably make things worse!)

    Uh.... you're in Hawaii.... go surfing, bike down a mountain, walk on a lava field, hike a rain forest, tour a pineapple plantation, go to a luau (A real Brady Bunch luau ...not one of those picnic table versions). I'm not EVEN going to talk about the beaches.

    This is one time you should get a pinball pass!

    hop on a plane over to Kauai, 20 min flight, me and my friend have 7 games in a brewery. I go to Oahu a lot, I have never seen a pin in the wild. If you find any let me know.

    North Shore pipeline is the best game in town.

    Just got back from there. Nothing. There is a barcade on one of the other islands but I forget which.

    Saw a dirty WWFRR at a movie theater outside of Kona on Big Island a few years ago...flippers too weak to make most shots.

    The brewery mentioned above sounds cool. Other than that, don't spend your time thinking about pinball. You aren't visiting florida, there are a lot of unique sights on Hawaii.

    Quoted from Kahanaohana:

    hop on a plane over to Kauai

    Fly, swim, walk on water, do whatever you have to do to go visit this guy who's offering to let you play his games. Clearly, he's got games and he's in the area. Do it!

    He's offered to let people stay in his rental property as well. Some day I will take him up on this as it's a generious offer from a fellow pinsider.

    Tempting ! Thanks a lot. Would you be around next Saturday (Dec 19) - alternatively Sunday?

    Just arrived. 28 hours door-to-door.

    Won't be able to do all that I feel blessed enough to come here for work. Got to attend the conference sessions - kind of a moral contract...
    ...but WE is free!

    $4500 - EACH!

    IIRC - pineapple, watermelon more Hawaiians are the only things produced locally. Everything is imported.... even sugar (it's processed on the mainland).

    I was there 4-5 years ago. We found an arcade near Waikiki - I'm pretty sure it was Winner's Zone:

    https://www.google.com/search?q=arcades+honolulu&oq=arcades+honolulu&aqs=chrome..69i57.4445j0j1&sourceid=chrome&es_sm=93&ie=UTF-8#q=arcades+honolulu&rflfq=1&tbm=lcl&rlfi=hd:;si:3935447290164609520

    They had mostly redemption games, but a few scattered modern arcades, and one pinball machine at the time - Avatar. It played great, and we made a stop out to play it every day while walking around. It's actually part of the reason I bought the title, it reminded my wife of our trip, so it was an easier sell than most!

    If you had gone a dozen years ago, there would have been this cool little bar in the International Marketplace that had a Big Guns, a Pinbot, and a Bally Wizard.

    IM got bulldozed last year to make room for a mall.
