Think you’ve got what it takes? Join in on the 3-day pinball tournament they are calling “It Never Drains in California.” The pinball champion will be crowned after multiple series of rounds racking up a high score based on a point system.

But wait … there’s more! Chill out and party at the VIP “Getaway Party” or test your knowledge with “Pinball Pub Quiz.” You can also game under the stars as campsites are available!

Join in on the fun at the Arcade Expo. I mean, c’mon, they broke the Guinness World Record last year for most people (331 to be exact) playing pinball simultaneously. How cool is that?¬†Join your Arcade Heroes and plenty of others for a night of fun, laughter and gaming and be part of something bigger.
