I can’t believe I missed this. I am always pissing and moaning that I never see many tables out and about and I’ve just gone and missed a pinball show with lots of table in the UK! Dammit! Anyone else get to go? Can you tell us what was there? Can you make me insanely jealous?
UK Pinball Show, now in its 4th year, will take place 30th & 31st August 2008 at Wicksteed Park, Kettering. Visitors will have the opportunity to play over 100 iconic pinball machines from classics like The Addams Family to Stern’s latest pinball, Batman: The Dark Knight.
Tournaments for players of all levels will also be happening, including the official UK Open Pinball Championships where the winner will be crowned UK Pinball Champion.
Nick Bennett, of organisers Pinballers Anonymous, said “Pinball retains its position as one of the most popular computer games formats and the chance to play this many full size machines is rare. For the forth year running we’re organising the largest show of it’s kind in Europe, making a huge number of machines available to visitors and with the continued resurgence of pinball we are expecting more visitors than ever.”
