Vacation Jackpot

My pinball wizzardish friend find some time this weekend to smash all the records I've hold on the Whitewater machine. He sure gave me something to work on now. This is what I've recorded during his playing:

This is widely agreed by far the coolest effect in any pinball machine ever. If you have any better candidates do not hesitate to write a comment.

He managed to get everything ready for the this during the first ball, with two EBs left and then got stuck with getting the last lock lit (It was the third time around). You can see in the video how he just lost ball 2 and then succeeded with the last ball.

This makes me think how much our pinball playing improved over the years. The first time I owed the Whitwater, I've only seen the Vacation Jackpot once during the period of two years, as now I've seen it a couple of times during just one weekend.

My mission is now known: The Whitewater river master

I got me a game room

As the title says. Finally, I've managed to obtain a place that will suite my pinball needs once and forall(or at least until I reach the rooms threshold). Due to the fact that I currently own only two pinball machines, this will probably take some time. The "Game room" as I've called it shoud hold 5-6 pinballs with ease. You've seen the rate at what I've been putting the machines together, so this will do it for at least a couple of years.

Thanks mom & dad.

Since a game room with only one game (for now) looked a bit sad, a friend of mine decided to move his Addams family to my place. This was kinda special experience. You don't drive a pinball machine on a trolley on a busy road every day ;):



Our common dream to have our machines at one place has finally came true:




Star Trek (that failed again last week, btw), will probably join them soon.
