Free Play Area
Our awesome collectors in Alberta get to show off over 150+ pinball and arcade machines. All are on free-play for the entire weekend so you can play as much as you want. We build your dream arcade. This is the main draw of the event and a great opportunity to play some of the newest pinball machines and all the classic arcades that you grew up playing. It is a pop up museum of pinball and arcade in our city.
Classic arcades are a huge hit at the show. Remember those days of hitting the old arcade and playing some of those classics for a quarter. Many of the old titles you used to play will be there!
A full licensed area for those that need a rest from all the action. There is even a selection of pinball machines in the Party Zone for those that want to play while they party
