We’re back at the Greater Tacoma Convention & Trade Centre for the opening of the show at midday on Friday.
Inside the main hall work was continuing on setting up all the machines and stands.
The grand prize raffle machines for each day’s draw had arrived, along with the main Houdini prize for the draw on Sunday afternoon.
The show desk also displayed the many smaller raffle prizes as well as selling show souvenirs such as posters and shirts.
Next door, Next Level Pinball Shop had a nice line-up of machines for guests to play.
Around the corner was the Nitro Pinball stand where the latest titles could be played.
We had a sneak-peek inside Thunderbirds to see how it is put together. It’s worth noting that this is still only a prototype game so various elements may change before production.
Marco Specialties had an impressive collection of Stern Pinball’s latest titles, including nine Iron Maiden titles most of which were the Premium model.
We’ll be back shorty with more from the Northwest Pinball & Arcade Show, but you can check out all our reports at the main NWPAS page.
