Show Tickets

TICKETS for the Ann Arbor pinball museum’s pinball showcase 2017 does require an advanced reservation/ticket before the show. (We most likely won’t have tickets at the door.) This ensures that we have workable attendance numbers, and that we know ahead exactly what those numbers are. This way the show won’t be too crowded. Because an over crowded event is no fun for anyone. We want a nice people-to-game ratio as this ensures a good time for all. Hence each and every person attending does need a ticket/reservation in order to attend, and preferably in advance of the show. This web page will allow you to get an advance ticket reservation using Paypal starting in January 2017. Remember in prior years we have sold out several weeks in advance, so don’t hesitate to get your 2017 show ticket.

2017 Pinball Showcase Days & Times
This is our fourth showcase, and below are the following days and times.
Friday May 5th, 2017, 4pm to 10pm *
Saturday May 6th, 2017, 10am to 8pm *
Sunday May 7th, 2017, 10am to 4pm

* NOTE that there are expanded hours on Friday and Saturday if you play in the tournaments. These are low-key, low stress, completely fun and goofy head-to-head (“match play”) style tournaments with a fixed low cost.

Please print and save your paypal receipt!
Though not absolutely necessary, it helps the check in process at the door. It is ideal to show your receipt at the door in order to get a wristband for the show. Have photo ID with you too (this prevents the same receipt being re-used by multiple people.) If you are buying a ticket for someone else, please indicate their name in the Paypal in the “Add special instructions” section of the Paypal order. If you loose your Paypal receipt that’s OK too, it just makes check in a bit longer.
