Northwest Pinball & Arcade Show

The NW Pinball & Arcade show is the show for pinball & video games in the Northwest. Usually in Seattle, this year they're holding it at the Tacoma Convention Center in downtown Tacoma, WA.
This show currently has over 350 pinball & arcade games across history that will all be set to free play for attendees. It will also be debuting the brand new Metallica pinball game by Bally--as well as holding a tournament.

The passes are pre-reg of $40 for all weekend or $50 at the door ($25 for kids 14 & under prereg of $30 at the door) or $20 Friday & Saturday and $15 Sunday (14 & Under are $15 Friday or Saturday & $10 Sunday). Or you can volunteer for 4 hours and get free entry for the whole weekend... Whatever option fits your budget & want for unlimited video gaming/pinball gaming easiest...
With Everfree happening soon, we thought Sunday would be a good day for a brony invasion. It would only be $15 ($10 for those 14 & under, or free for those who volunteered earlier in the weekend) for a day of unlimited free play on video games & pinball games. A full list of the games so far is at for browsing. (They'll have Dragon's Lair 1 & 2 as well as Space Ace! YES!). There's also some good restaurants right by the convention center--including even Old Spaghetti Factory if we all wanted as a group to get a meal together after a long day gaming.


As always, Tacoma has free parking downtown on Sunday. And you can also park at the Tacoma Dome parking and take Tacoma's Link Rail to get dropped off right in front of the convention itself. So let's go spend a day playing video & pinball games!
