Heads up if not already aware, the Northern Lights pinball guys have a 'limited' number of discounted tickets available here:

www.ukpinball.com/twilightzone

Not sure how many available but can save you a few quid. 100 pins expected this year. Smile

Hi guys.

Just wondering if anyone knows if there will be a street fighter 2 (ideally turbo) machine present next weekend?

I spent about half my day on the one at replay blackpool and found there to be a great spirit between those that were playing. Would be good to repeat it :)

Why was there an issue when you last played it?

Gutted, don't think I'm gonna make it this time around.
Already got a night time event to attend on the Sat (Orlyk 65th Anniversary just in case anyone's curious,LOL), originally thought I might make it to the daytime Play Expo on the Saturday, then the nighttime party for Orlyk, then recover Sunday, but not looking likely that I'll get to Play on Sat now.

Hotel prices are nuts! Managed to get a room in Travelodge about 6 miles away from where the party is on Sat night, need to try and get estimates of taxi costs now, can cancel up until Saturday. If it works out almost the same with taxi's as paying the high central Manchester costs I might change.

I can't make it either unfortunately. I just can't afford what the weekend amounts too - which is about £350!

Try one of the IBIS's , there is one across the road from the Party and one near the Lass.

Oops... misread that, wrong Party !!  Sorry...

LOL, cheers Col.
Looked at the IBIS site last night, nothing available according to the site, nearest they had was Warrington, also a Mercure spa one on Oldham postcode ,
currently got a room at the Travelodge M62 Birch, same sort of distance to the party 5-6 miles, not great, but all the other places are up in the £130+ now..

There was a cab with HYPER SF2 (not ST), the sticks were okay but could be better. The sticks on the cab with SF3 3S were really bad! Cry
Yeah I wanna play ST too
