Leading a resurgence of pinball venues and locations around northern Colorado is the PinBall Jones arcade in Old Town Fort Collins. Kim Jones and her crew have had this arcade up and running for over two years now, and with the nicer weather and increased foot traffic in a popular section of the city, things are looking great! Kim is aggressively promoting our hobby with monthly tournaments, a weekly league, a recent showing of the Special When Lit movie at a nearby theater, and an impressive lineup of new and old games, with several games rotating in and out already.
The lineup as of March includes AC/DC LE, South Park, Stern Indiana Jones, Medieval Madness, Attack From Mars, the new Stern Walking Dead , METALLICA, Elvira and the Party Monsters, Banzai Run , Tales of the Arabian Nights Star Trek the Next Generation , Addams Family, Twilight Zone, Spider-Man, Scared Stiff, the new Stern Star Trek , Wizard of OZ, Wizard!, Tron , Simpsons Pinball Party, Lord of the Rings, and Creature From the Black Lagoon! Plus a Ms PacMan cocktail and two multicade games. There is now a ball bowler, CCM Queen Bowler, in the back. Watch for the companion arcade "Old Town Arcade" right next to PBJ to open soon!
Pinball Jones also operates games at several locations in the Fort Collins area, see the website for more information.
