    It's my first time going. I would like to get some pointers on the tournaments, vendors, and a general idea of what to expect.

    I'm not in the market to get a machine while I'm there, but would love to find some folks willing to talk to me about what to look for when buying a machine, and maybe even show me what lies "under the hood" of some pins.

    Of course, it would be great to meet some local (Baltimore) enthusiasts and make some new friends while I'm at it!

    I wonder if former 76er Todd MacCulloch will be there and how huge he is now.

    I know this is an old thread but since it was revived...

    I have 6 machines, but am priced out of getting any more now. Going to shows and playing in my local league is how I enjoy pinball. I've never been to Allentown, but hear it's a great show.

    I was thinking of buying a new machine and getting it shipped to me- I’ve always liked playing pinball. A new machine costs more than I thought (the new Iron Maiden special edition game-$7,500).

    Yeah I think if I got Maiden, ACDC and Metallica I'd be done for life. But that's over $20k right there. I've wanted a pinball for 20 years, shoulda bought one 20 years ago before the prices got ridiculous.
