Pinball wizards and gamers can play hundreds of pinball, retro and classic arcade video games at this weekend’s Ultimate Pinball and Gamer Festival.

Play for fun or opt-in to compete for glory, trophies, cash and prizes in pinball and arcade tournaments for all ages and skill levels. A full slate of casual and friendly tournaments challenges individuals, rookies, kids, parent-kid teams and more. The festival’s sanctioned tournaments pit a player’s skills against the best and highest ranked competitive pinball players in the world, according to a news release.

The festival is June 8-10 at Denver Marriott South at Park Meadows, 10345 Park Meadows Drive, Lone Tree. It features special guests from the industry and the community to give fans opportunities to interact with personalities, discuss timely topics and learn about different areas of pinball, console and classic arcade video gaming.

Meet game designers and developers, learn about pinball engineering, find out more about pinball tournaments and learn how to handle common fixes for machines.

The only game that takes quarters is Monster Bash, and all proceeds from that game will be donated to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. All other games are free with paid admission, which is $33 for adults and $15 for ages 7-12. Children 6 and younger are admitted free.

Show hours are 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. June 8, 10 a.m. to midnight June 9 and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. June 10. For information and the schedule, email info@PinballShowdown.com, or go to www.PinballShowdown.com.
