Pinball in Canberra?

By phototext 14 January 2009 29

Might be the warm weather reminding me of lazy summer days of my youth,  I have a hankering to play some pinball.

Anyone know if there any decent machines to play in our fine town?

What’s Your opinion?

Not quite as exciting, and a bit OT, but anyone remember those old “desk” games? I remember there was a pacman one down the old fish and chip shop growing up… used to beg dad to play, but was turned down – 40c a pop was a bit too steep! :o)

I have always wanted to start a Pinball devotees website and try to list locations for pinballs around Canberra and/or oz.

I have played the Indy machine at Zone 3 to death (and it did actually die, but may be back now). The 2 machines in Intencity in the mall are almost always dead. (World Cup 96 and Space Jam) I love the Lord of the Rings machine which was down in the Hyperdome movie theatres for a while. Capital Funland has a few in Civic, but last time I was there, the AMF Bowling in Belco didn’t have any.

I too used to love flogging the Getaway II machine at AMF Bowling in Belco. The soundtrack rocked! The Gunners machine is definitely a favourite, also the Junkyard one, which I haven’t seen for ages.

One day I’ll buy one for home 🙂

Actually it was High Speed II The getaway. Excellent machine with the Turbo boost loop!

thanks for refreshing my memory. used to spend a lot of money at time out in belco on that one.

There is or was a guy in latham that owned KC’s Virtual reality, he used to show us the new pinnies as he got them. got to play T2 before it was released.

I’m pretty sure it was Getaway II that had the ZZ top soundtrack.
