Mar 14, 2012 10:02AM, Published by tina, Categories: Life+Leisure, Today




The 2012 Texas Pinball Festival returns to the Hilton DFW Lakes Executive Conference Center in Grapevine March 23 – 25 with more than 15,000 square feet of game room fun!

More than 200 vintage and new pinball machines, classic arcade games and slot machines will be for sale and set on free play, so guests can leave their quarters at home. A variety of adult and kid pinball tournaments throughout the weekend will test player’s pinball skills against other competitors for trophies and cash prizes. Door prizes for pinball related memorabilia will be awarded hourly throughout the weekend, including a grand prize raffle drawing Sunday awarding a full-sized, coin-operated New Transformers Pinball Machine to benefit the Red Cross.

Check out the outdoor flea market on Saturday, March 24 from 8:00 a.m. until noon. The huge outdoor flea market and swap meet features coin-operated collectibles in the front parking lot of the hotel. Flea market admission is free to all guests.

Looking for special parts for your vintage machine? Vendors will also be on hand selling parts, supplies, equipment and memorabilia all weekend. Don’t miss the presentation by pinball artist George Gomez and Steve Richie on Saturday featuring autograph signings and a question and answer session.

The Texas Pinball Festival is open to the public so bring the whole family!  See festival schedule for more information.
