Pinball on-a- Stick Special Episode!


Welcome to Episode 15!


The long haul to Wednesday!


Sunday we moved 8 machines from location to the State Fair. We cleaned, replaced rubber, adjusted, leveled, Arcade Kris and I spent over an hour planning the lineup position of each game. When they got there, nothing added up! Musical chairs


Wednesday’s hospital visit followed by the JDRF Fundraiser! What an event! People were so generous and kind to our cause! We raised $620 and 100% of that money raised was given to the foundation! 


We had a few issues with machines that were adjusted and one hard down on WrestleMania. The drop target coil locked on and the node board went. We are working with Stern on a replacement board to get us back up to 100%! We apologize for the inconvenience! 


Special thanks to Arcade Kris for giving us the space to use during a very hectic last day before the fair, Bryan Kelly for manning the door and collecting, some would event say harassing Ryan for selling our shirts.

Minnesota State Fair- Pinball on-a- Stick

Its been a busy busy few weeks. I have been out at the fair almost every day the past few weeks. Its been a lot of work but also a lot of fun. Hanging out wirth Kris and learning from his experience is really awesome! 


Its a lot of work to get an arcade up and running before the big event! We have 12 days to get everything ready! 


Hercules is looking amazing! I have seen several of these over the years and it looks sooooo good! We have the PlayField back together, new coin door, all the legs, rails, and cab have been repainted. Comet duel LEDs throughout the entire game and spot lights make this game look amazing! We have new sheet of PlayField lexsan ordered as well.


The right tool for the job! NeedleNose Vise Grips to the rescue!  


Tonight was the hottest, no wind, humid day of the summer and tonight was the night we hung all the banners around the arcade. It was awful! 


Hey Chris, how’d it go getting into the Fairgrounds with the police? Epic prank!


Hows East Side Pinball doing? I haven’t cleaned the games in 6 days and it makes me sick!

Thanks so much for tunning in with us! Have a GREAT WEEK FLIPPERS! Remember, Drop a quarter and FLIP OUT!
