Hello All

I have been looking on the map and do not see anywhere to play these two in the St. Louis area. I know that there is a Black Knight Sword of Rage (Pro) in soulard but I was curious if there was anywhere else. Also would love to play Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory (Standard) if anyone knows where one is yet.

I was thinking of stopping by Aminis for a few plays, but didn't want to put myself in the position to bring one home.

Thanks in advance.

Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory (Standard)

No Idea where you'd find one to play. My guess is Padavan's will have it first.

BKSOR - Parlor and possibly a few other locations soon

I figured Padavans would get wonka first, but they still do not have Black Knight so wasn't sure. Where is Parlor? I am unfamiliar with that. The one I knew of was in soulard at the Darkness.

At St Louis Escape www.stlouisescape.com or rather www.stlouispinball.com we have Black Knight. Right now we have I think 14 games up there about to add Baywatch. Recently just added Road Show.

As for Wonka if you check out our pinball website we're selling Wonka. We sell JJP games. Speak of the devil I'm in communication with Jack, and once I get my Wonka game I'm going to have a Wonka party. Free food, drinks, and more with the game on free play.

I don't think anyone has Wonka yet unless they ordered an SE. I getting either an LE or CE for the party. If you're interested in coming to the party send me a message and I'll invite you!

Thanks

Just played a Black Knight Sword of Rage (LE) at the silver ballroom. They have a premium and got it in last Wednesday, everyone should stop by and play if you have been looking for this game.

Im sorry, I mistyped the previous post. It is a Black Knight Sword of Rage (Premium) not LE.

Bump. For anyone that may have gotten one in the last week.

BTW I just got Wonka and I have two more in my garage in the box. If anyone is looking to buy one let me know. I'm considering putting Wonka at St Louis Escape, but right now we have Black Knight and we ordered a Jurassic Park. So that is coming.

We also just installed Beatles and I don't know ANYWHERE you can play that game. So come on by.

Great. Thank you, let me know when Wonka is out and I will make the trip that way. It is a haul for me downtown as I live in Weldon spring so I will make a day out of it.

I did try to come by on a saturday around 11 and the place was locked up and I couldn't quite figure out when it was open. I know it says when the escape room is booked but I couldn't view the bookings on mobile without actually starting a booking to see the schedule.

Are there hours you are generally open as I don't want to make the trip without knowing?

Thanks

I have to apologize because everyone is confused by that I'm sorry. You have to understand the pincade was an afterthought. We set up the escape rooms never thinking about a pincade. The Escape Rooms do awesome for us we put a ton of money into it no doubt!

What happened was eventually I realized everyone wanted company parties so we built a party room, originally it only had a shuffle board table. Boom then started buying pinballs saw all the pincade bars opening, removed the shuffle board table and rest is history.

So here is how you find out when we're open... go to www.stlouisescape.com look and try to book a room. If you see rooms with less than the total number allowed then you know we have a booking. Confusing I know but actually its not that hard. We have some diehard pinball guys who've figured it out... they come all the time and have gotten to know our staff pretty well.

On Saturday we're typically open almost all day once our first booking starts. Sundays we're typically there almost all day as well.

Come on down. I can tell you this we're NOT trying to make money off pinball. I've spent tens of thousands and have made but hundreds. LOL

Just trying to make the escape rooms a more fun place to visit.

Hope to see you there.

Great. I was able to see the availability and on some it is obvious that some are booked when it says something like 3 available. But other times you cannot tell because I don't know the max number. Are they all assumed to be 12?

#13 11 months ago

Wonka will be at Padavans next Wednesday, Jurassic park pro will be there hopefully in a couple weeks.

#14 11 months ago

I will stop by and try out Beatles. Thanks for the update.

BTW I just added a Wonka to my house... if anyone wants to come over and play it on Saturday let me know. I'm throwing a Wonka party.

I moved a few games out of my basement including Lord of the Rings and Beatles both of those got moved to St Louis Escape downtown.

I had to make room for Wonka and Big Lebowski which I just bought.

Let me know if you're interested.

BTW I bought a Jurassic Park LE today... I will be putting that at St Louis Escape once it comes in. We also added Beatles down there and next week I'll bring up Lord of the Rings.
