I've always loved pinball...from the early 80s when I would play every once in a while in the bowling alley while my parents
Unfortunately, pinball has been disappearing from public places over the past 20 years. It used to be in every bowling alley and arcade, and most bars...now all you get is Big Buck Hunter (which is fine, but it is not pinball). Pinball is hard to find. I am always looking for different games and new new places to play...so I am making a page to list all the games that I know about in the area. You can see it on the right called "Pinball in Central Iowa."
I envision this as an interactive site where people can contact me to add new games and locations to the list...as a community we can make a comprehensive and up-to-date list of places and games to play. In the future, I would also like to start a pinball club, where pin geeks can all get together and hang out one night a week and have some friendly and tournament play.
So please, stop by, contact me if you know of any additions, changes, or interest in getting together to play some pin. Frequent these places and let them know that you appreciate them still supporting pinball in Iowa.
Update - as I was typing Derek from Des Moines Alive contacted me to let me know that they have a tag for pinball locations....so I am going to include a link for them at the bottom of the page. Since I don't have a list of exact games at some locations, I am not putting them all in my list yet. But am going to be working my way down the list to find out. Thanks Derek.
