Big Thanks to Kurt for opening his doors for us!
« on: May 08, 2011, 07:24:22 AM »
After we left Art's place. we headed over to Kurt's for some more pinball action. A few of Kurt's games are split into another room and unfortunately, we didn't get around to turning them on as we stayed in the back room. Those games were Revenge from Mars, Black Knight and Gottlieb's Strikes and Spares. It was cool to played some of the old titles I used to have like Bride of Pinbot, Judge Dredd and The Addam's Family. I especially miss the Bride. I played Taxi, Roller Games and The Getaway for the first time ever. I needed to get home to spend some time with my wife, so my stay wasn't as long as I would have liked, but I had a great time with some great people! Nice collection Kurt and thanks again!

Whoa!  That was a long day.  Looks like a great gameroom and pinball selection.

This hobby is filled with great, unique people, and Kurt is one of them.
I can't repeat some of the adventures he's had, but he could be the star of a great documentary!

Looks like you guys had a LOT of fun.  Nice collection. Wish I could have made it.  

That PINBALL neon sign/art piece in the background of photo number two looks INCREDIBLE.  Never seen anything like it. Does that thing light up? Custom made I bet.
When in Fort Myers, visit THE PINBALL ASYLUM!

Yeah, I'll bet you have the 'perfect' spot for it too!
Hopefully Kurt can retell the story of how he got it...

The "kick butt" jackpot song on rollergames is even better!

Thanks for coming over, everyone! That was a killer pinball day!!! I wish I could do it more often. I'll be having a huge pinball party in the future, stay tuned.

Sorry it took so long to respond. It's been 12+ hour days at work. Seems to never end!
