I used the pinball map recently in Canada and it's quite useful, a local version would be great

I have created a pinball machine locations list on the website Duderocket.com:

http://duderocket.com/site-content/002527-duderocket-pinball-machine-directory

Most of them (in NSW) I pinched from this great forum  ^^^

I always try and visit the locations to confirm (and play) b4 adding to the list but it's not always possible.

And of course any contributions to the list are always appreciated, just drop me a pm  <..>

Iron Man at Tik Tocs Family Indoor Leisure Centre

2/9 Enterprise Circuit  Prestons NSW 2170
(02) 9607 0888

3 games for $3 @ 3 balls per game.
Ball shooter crappy (probably some young kid hanging off it). Flippers are strong but sometimes sticky. Playfield, cabinet and game in good nick.

Took the young ones to Tik Tocs and surprised to find only 1 pinnie in the whole place. Many young kids there did not understand pinball I am sorry to say but nevertheless, I had a great time.

First time I played IM and I am impressed. Great game and brilliant layout. I ended up playing about a dozen games out of $3.
If you don't remember the 70s then you were on drugs.
If you remember playing pinball in the 70s you were having a good time.
If you don't remember anything,  then read about it here,

There's a couple of nice T2s in Thornbury if you're ever up this way. One of them is even set to freeplay and comes with a fridge full of BYO beer! ;)

yes definitely one there

played a sited LE today No:221, 5 balls for $2

very nice looking machine, hammer lock wasn't working during game play except when you hit the ramps multiple times the hammer would just slam down for no reason  !@# !@# !@#

the cross would go up and down at the game end and start, but during game play - hit it multiple times and would not rise even after getting the multiball.

this machine had a shaker and mirror blades and very nice - definitely recommend both. As for the sub did not notice it as was turned down and in a pub environment - actually could hardly hear the songs, just music noise and the odd call out.

Definitely recommend dropping past for a game.


Interesting thing I could see some minor similarities to IM, upper post, orbit shots ramp place meet cross where war machine is and pops in same place, ramps were cool and alot easier to hit than first reports, graphics look stunning.

Added to list
I am slowly updating the list and removing old posts to keep it more stream line.
I will try and keep all the sited pinball pics or even move them to a new thread
