Oh! And it can't be indicated on the pinball map, but should you decide to make the trip to Big Rig, stop next door at the Small Pony Barrel Works. They're also a craft brewery, but they specialize in small-batch barrel aged sour beers. Something really unique and special.

Also, grab some lunch (or dessert) at La Maison du Kouign-Amann next door to that.

Drop me a line before going and I'll join you, or we can play a few rounds in my basement first.

Charter member of the Small Pony “Culture Club” and agreed it’s worth checking out if you’re into sours!

Also nearby is Calabogie brewpub which has much better food (pizza oven!) but alas no pinballs

Joust! Too bad it’s not a cocktail pin version!

New renovations to the taproom at Big Rig allows for more games!

The current line-up available now:

Stern Jurassic Park
Iron Man
Tron
Addams family
The Getaway HS II
Bride of Pinbot 2.0
Iron Maiden
Walking Dead

Big Rig is shaping up to be an amazing location! We will be bringing in a few cocktail table arcades as well as a few upright mechanical games in the near future (Ice Cold Beer, Fire Escape, CC Mini Baseball)

Any suggestions on a date for the inaugural pinball tournament are welcome. Aiming for something in March.

sweet, will be great to have all the mechanical machines in one spot! I love Targ but the free-play crowd might as well be executioners for old arcades.

Ah crap! I just quit my Kanata job and was really planning on never again driving up March rd

you’re tempting me to reconsider that policy

Excellent lineup! And the beer next door at the Small Pony Barrel Works is good too! Make sure to stop in at Kouign Amann for a snack!
