I teach at a middle school. Tonight was our Halloween Dance/Activity night so I decided to share my passion with the kidos. At all times there were at least 8 kids in line or around the machine. So many told me that not only was it the first time they played, but also the first time they had seen one in person. The only negative comments I got were why didn't I bring more than just the one. One of the best comments I got was "so are all pinball machines interactive?" I asked, "what do you mean". Kid responds "like do they all have stories and things you have to do to get points?" I respond "yes for the most part they do" Kid says "that's cool, so it's not just about keeping the ball up"
