AWESOME!
Thx for your work on the spreadsheet.
I try to encourage everyone to update it whenever they play.
I almost exclusively deal with the Ottawa spreadsheet page as that's where I play.

I've located another machine in St. Catharines. There is a Simpson's Pinball Party at the Boston Pizza located on 221 Glendale Avenue, it's the one right beside the Pen Centre. I was there a few weeks ago, but hopefully it should still be there :)

Also, the machine was in pretty decent condition. One flipper seemed a bit weaker than the other, and one line of the DMD was out, but other then that everything worked fine.

I was at the Player's in St Catherines today and tried out the Medievil Madness, and it is still broken.. the castle couldn't be destroyed and you couldn't lock any balls either. The trolls weren't popping up as well, and it was just a shame to see such a coveted game so poorly looked after..

Awesome to hear that! I will have to venture over to that Boston Pizza, since I have never had the chance to play Spiderman. I was at the Boston Pizza here in St kitts yesterday, and they still have TSPP up and running, but man that thing has gotten even more problems now. And it looks like nobody gives a damn about it. I couldn't find a Playdium or Starburst marker on it anywhere, so I don't even know who operates the damn thing. I still played it, since it gives you 3 credits for a dollar, and gives out free games like candy, but it is a seriously handicapped machine..

Went to Sherkston today and they only have one pinball so far (AC/DC) compared to last years 5 pinball line-up that included a cactus canyon. I talk to the arcade maintenance, he said there should be a decent line-up at the end of the month...fingers crossed for Cactus canyon :D

BP on Glendale still has TSPP. Game is hurting and needs some life pumped back into it. Asked manager for operators info to see if he is willing to sell the game....it needs a good home!

Operator is "Arrow Amusement" and they plan on swapping out TSPP with something else.

I noticed this too, and it is some real bull shit!! Seeing as how TSPP at Boston Pizza is fading fast, and the Medieval Madness at Player's will never be repaired, it looks like Welland is now the closest place to go to get some pinball action.

The machines in the Skylon Tower dungeon have been in ill-repair since Y2K...they don't even warrant being added to the list! Kind of sad...the guy who used to run the arcade down there passed away some time ago, and it has not been the same since. No money being put into the upkeep of that place anymore.

The Sopranos pin at 28 Courtwright St. in Fort Erie is now a Pirates of the Caribean pin! Plays pretty good, The boat is stuck in the playfield but ship battle still works and gives multi ball. :)
