    It wasn't bad enough that I had to miss the MD State Championships due to a business trip, but now I'm in a place that seems to be without any pinball in the wild. Someone please prove me wrong so I can get out of the hotel and get my pin on!

    Fun Depot 2003 10th Avenue North, Lake Worth, FL 33461, USA

    It's on the Pinside location map. Went there a few years ago. It was ok, some worked, some didn't. Maybe someone else has a more recent experience.

    Fun Depot games are garbage. There is not much there. I lived there most of my wife and the only way you're going to play quality pinball is finding a collector that will open up their doors for you

    I had seen Fun Depot on he map but was warned to avoid it because of the condition of the pins. I'm almost to the point of saying "F* it!" and checking it out anyway since it's within range of the hotel shuttle. Was just hoping for another option.

    There is a Walking Dead Pro in a barber shop on Jog & lantan road

    Fun Depot is so bad , it's a real
    Shame.

    They are opening a pinball museum in delray which will have 100 games sometime soon !

    Seems like you have a place to play but I'm not too far either have 5 games.

    #10 3 years ago

    There's a place in Delray Beach called Vintage Pinball that looks pretty nice if you're into EMs (which I am!) but it's closed on Sundays and closes during the week at 4:00pm or 5:00pm depending on the day. Unfortunately, even though I will be here all week, I have no daytime availability.

    Dude you are in Florida in February. Hit the beach, eat a grouper sandwich, have some frozen drinks, hit the strip clubs and forget pinball for a while.

    I don't think the wife would appreciate me hitting the strip clubs! LOL! Forget pinball!?!?!? I'll be having none of that!!!

    Definitely check out Larrys (Pinbum) place, make him take the racecars out for a spin while you're at it.
    I've only got 2 pins and a virtual pin at the moment but more than welcome top stop by, about 35 minutes north of WPB.

    #14 3 years ago

    Kevin kjm8888, will be in touch to hang out and give my machines some well deserved play. Any locals, or non locals, are more than welcome to come over the same night Kevin is here, hell we will make a party out of it. One more thing ,the Ape Show is also going on this weekend for even more pin action. Looking forward to it! Larry

    #15 3 years ago

    Larry, I will call you around noon on my lunch break tomorrow. Looking forward to seeing your collection! I saw the website for the Ape Show and was really bummed because I'm flying back home on Friday. Looks like it will be a great show!

    #16 3 years ago

    Just got back from Pinbum's house and I have to say that Larry and his wife were amazing hosts! Definitely the best example of what makes Pinside and the pinball community such a great place to be! He has a great collection of absolutely pristine pins. I so wanted to take Congo home with me! Had an awesome time and can't wait to come back again! Thanks again, Larry!

    #17 3 years ago

    My pleasure Kevin, anytime your down again my home is open to you. Had a great time, and the pins enjoyed it too. Thanks Larry

    I like this thread. It's what I refer to in my head as "No-BS, Pinside Magic".

    #19 3 years ago

    Is this the Larry I know or another Larry?

    #20 3 years ago

    Hey Adam, i think it's me NGL

    #21 3 years ago

    Larry has a nice collection for sure. He is a great host. Glad you found a place to play.

    #22 3 years ago
