    Jared Guynes Presents
    THE NORTH TEXAS PINBALL LIMO TOUR

    Hop aboard a private chartered LUXURY LIMO BUS for 12 hours of fun you will never forget!

    The bus has schedule stop at 3 amazing private collections across North Texas where you will get to play a variety of pinball machines and classic arcade games for no charge. Amazingly, the cost for a ticket is about what you would spend in gas to drive to all 4 of these destinations in a single day. Might as well do it in STYLE!

    Lunch & Drinks are provided by our Sponsor "More Fun Comics & Games".

    There are only 26 TOTAL seats on this tour. Once all 26 seats are pre-sold we can take no additional guests.

    THIS IS A NON PROFIT EVENT.

    100% of the money taken is to pay for the bus rental and driver for 12 hours. Thats it.

    The cost for chartering the LIMO BUS for 12 hours is 1741 dollars. This creates the total cost per person to rent the bus to be $65.

    Once all 26 Spots fill up on the bus, we will start a back-up list in case someone needs to drop out.

    Only purchasing a ticket can hold a spot, but tickets ARE 100% refundable.

    FREE DINNER AND DRINKS provided by a large donation from one of our very own club members! "More Fun Comics and Games" is sponsoring our dinner on the tour, thank you!

    You will get to play ALL of the A-List Pinball games, see 3 incredible collections and spend a wild 12 hour day with old and new friends alike!

    Great idea - looks fun!

    #3 6 years ago

    Looks very cool. I think that is the same day as the Houston show though (I could be off a week). Will there be any other dates y'all are going to do this?

    #4 6 years ago

    Houston Arcade Expo is Nov 8th and 9th.

    #6 6 years ago

    Great idea! I'm tempted to drive up from Houston; but probably best to leave this for the natives. 26 seats is not a lot, especially if people bring friends or family.

    #7 6 years ago
    Quoted from PinballManiac40:

    Houston Arcade Expo is Nov 8th and 9th.

    Quoted from Jared:

    Not the same dates...

    Awesome. I think I may drive up and do this. Sounds like fun!

    #8 6 years ago

    I got permission from the Mrs. to go and she's going to come with me (assuming there are still seats available when I call tomorrow).

    Quoted from jkdblaze:

    Great idea! I'm tempted to drive up from Houston; but probably best to leave this for the natives. 26 seats is not a lot, especially if people bring friends or family.

    I took the fact that they posted it here as meaning they would like to broaden their group and get some people from outside of Dallas. I hope so anyway; I love reasons to go visit Dallas; awesome city!!!!!

    #9 6 years ago

    You are welcome to join us Tiger Law! This will be an event for true pinheads!

    #11 6 years ago
    Quoted from Jared:

    19 seats remain on the bus.

    Payment sent. Now you only have 17! My wife and I are in!

    Quoted from TigerLaw:

    Awesome man!!!!

    #13 6 years ago

    When is this? I missed the dates.

    #14 6 years ago
    Quoted from Nevus:

    When is this? I missed the dates.

    Saturday, November 2nd. It is an open Saturday for LSU so it won't get in the way of any football . . . couldn't be a better date!

    #16 6 years ago

    So, when is the planned unveiling for the other two private collections?

    Consider the question a free bump.

    #18 6 years ago

    Sounds like a great idea and a lot of fun! Also glad to see TigerLaw25 being able to make it to a pin party!

    #19 6 years ago

    Also glad to see TigerLaw25 being able to make it to a pin party!

    Me too! I live in the pinball desert of South West Louisiana and though we have a few collectors around now we couldn't ever dream of something like this. I am rip roaring ready for this event! I need to book my room now that I think about it.

    Bakushan, what is a good hotel near the pick up and drop off area? Can you send me the address?

    Tiger_Party.jpg

    #20 6 years ago

    We have not yet decided the start area, but I would choose somewhere near North Dallas, 75 and 635 area.

    #23 6 years ago
    Quoted from Jared:

    Did I miss a post?

    I don't think you want to know what it said. When my daughter saw it, she started crying.

    #24 6 years ago

    I lived in Dallas from '95-'98 and long before I got into pinball. If I still lived down there I'd be all over this. Sounds like a great idea!

    #25 6 years ago
    Quoted from joestro78:

    I don't think you want to know what it said. When my daughter saw it, she started crying.

    Guess its a good thing I cant see it.

    Stir da POT!!!...That is funny right there....

    #28 6 years ago

    Just thought I'd give the thought another bump. Really excited about the trip!!!

    #30 6 years ago

    I added the event to the Pinside event page. I just used the data that was in this thread. Let me know if you want me to change anything.

    #31 6 years ago

    Gonna pass.....yeah stirrin the pot.

    #32 6 years ago

    Now you're going to scare them all. Fear not though Dallas. I'm coming too so I'll watch him.

    I didnt know there was such a thing.

    19 spots left at this moment.

    LOL.

    The hope was/is that 100% of the participants will be known members of the pinball community... at least people you have met before... or heard of.

    #37 6 years ago

    The next Pinball Tour Bus will be a trip from Dallas to Austin to visit pinballz.

    For the price per person, it should be = or less than the cost of gas in a personal car. Might as well have a driver take you down in a luxury bus...

    But thats another thread in the future.

    Maybe Eric will come over and FSSU. Break a glass by the shear force of shaking a game, bend a few legs, and smash a lock down bar to never invite anyone to his place to crush his stuff.....LOL!!!...

    I am still waiting....If the tour went to his house. I am in.

    BUMP. I am cutting off ticket sales at midnight 10/23/13. Thanks!

    #40 6 years ago

    LOL, Eric can come play at my house. My pins like it rough. Just ask AC/DC...I think it left my house with bruises and broken bones. ¬_¬

    Those times were a riot!!

    Quoted from Jared:

    How many tickets are left available at the moment? Still really looking forward to the tour. Doing a tournament in Dallas tomorrow, it will be fun to meet and hang out with you Dallas guys.

    Sadly I am in Houston for the Grand Prix for the weekend so I wont be able to meet you!

    Currently we have 18 seats remaining.

    If we dont hit the cap by the cut off date, I will simply move us down to a smaller limo. As long as we have 8 total (which we do) then we will have the tour. It just wont be a "limo bus" if we dont get enough to fill it.

    Hoping more people see how special an event this is and hop aboard in the coming weeks.

    #44 6 years ago

    I met a couple of the hosts for the party yesterday in Dallas. You Dallas guys really have a great group of collectors; really pumped to head back up there next month!

    #45 6 years ago

    It was nice to meet you as well.

    Hey everyone, its your last chance to sign up for the amazing Pinball Limo Tour! This is a all day event where you can sit back, realx, have some drinks and play a LOT of pinball!

    On a private tour we will visit amazing personal collections of pinball machines, vintage arcades, and incredible game rooms! At each of our stops we will get to play the games for FREE, no quarters needed!

    As an added bonus to this event, I have arranged a food and drink sponsorship, so you dont even have to buy your own refreshments! Sweet!

    We will start at 11am on Saturday, November 2nd and the limo will have us back at our cars by 11pm that same night. It will be a true adventure for any pinball enthusiast, game lover, or arcade junkie!

    This is a NON PROFIT EVENT and 100% of the costs are paid for by us, the participants. If you need help/time paying for your ticket message me privately. No-one will know.

    I hope you consider coming! The next event I organize will be a CHARTERED BUS to Pinballz Arcade in Austin! Stay tuned for those details later!

    I need you to purchase your tickets TODAY or make arrangements with me if you cant pay now. Thanks.
