    shameless plug for the pinball hall of fame in vegas
    http://www.pinballmuseum.org/

    Ran across this place on vacation by complete accident, it wound up taking more quarters from me than the casino`s.

    I live about 1 1/2 hours from there, and I have three kids. I`ve never been. How sad is that?

    Too short!
    Oh wait... there`s more on autoplay! Hooray!

    The collection in the second video is EPIC!

    Aww, 3rd video isn`t about the museum. Still interesting though! 4.0!!

    @Tacos4Brkfst: you REALLY should put that link in the suggestions :-)

    It`s AWESOME! I clicked the "virtual tour" and right away found one of my ALL TIME FAVORITE machines: "Centigrade 37"

    Yes, I played a lot of pinball as a child...
    Video games as a youth...
    Computer games as an adult...

    Everyone go visit the Pinball Museum too! After watching a few of @Gottamgear`s videos on this post, of course :-)

    I never thought I`d ever see the Hercules pinball machine again. Got to play it only a few times. When i went back to the same arcade a few months later it was gone.

    Loved pinball as a kid. Online versions aren`t the same.

    Also used to enjoy the "sink the battleship" and "haunted house" games at the local bowling alley (all done with mirrors) back in the Stone Age.

    And, let`s not forget those Light Cycle games that hit the pizza shops after TRON came out.

    that`s not the world`s largest pinball machine. pinball wizard and king`s island is much larger.

    razbitom: Pinball Wizard and King`s Island were not "mass produced", they were one-of-a-kinds.

    There could be much bigger than those though. Pong has been played using the lights from a skyscraper. So a virtual pinball machine could be made that is just as big, perhaps using video projectors.
