Not an easy answer. Cyclone was the Pin that started my passion for Pinball (Circus Circus Las Vegas). Twilight Zone, Tales of the Arabian Nights, Theatre of Magic, Medieval Madness, Scared Stiff, and most recently AC/DC Premium which might just be at the top of my list now for greatest Pinball machines of all time, but....there are just sooo many beautiful machines out there. I want to own as many of them as I can. Still looking to buy my first one...just watching and trying to be patient and learning all I can about maintenance and repair before I pick the right one. In the meantime, I have The Pinball Arcade on my Android devices, Wii, and Xbox 360.
I started searching for Pinball, ANY, in San Diego....started realizing how rare these Pins have become and I found this group in my searches...held off joining for a long time, but here I am now. Fortunately for me I get to play with some really great players and even some Pros that are San Diego locals. The High Dive is definitely my favorite spot to play as well as Kearny Mesa Bowl. The machines are always well taken care of at both of these locations which makes playing these great machines even better.
Pinball machines greatly influence me as a musician. They are a big part of my life and I'm blessed to have found such a nice group of people here in San Diego. I always look forward to our monthly tournaments. Pinball Museum Las Vegas anyone?
