Bally's World Cup Soccer at The Port

I already spoke of The Port having to close it's doors and saying goodbye to Dundas West but I just want to say again that The Port will be very much missed (mostly by me). I thought it was a pretty neat little bar and, besides having a pinball machine, The Port had a real cool vibe and was a great music venue. Perhaps a nod to the Portuguese roots of the area, it was fitting that The Port had Bally's World Cup Soccer.

Michigan Pinball Expo 2012

ALRIGHT ALRIGHT I know it's been about a month since I attended Michigan Pinball Expo 2012 but that doesn't mean it is no longer fresh in my mind! It's just a matter of where to start talking about it... Basically, it's a banquet hall filled with a ton of pinball machines.

Obituary & New Discoveries


The Port down on Dundas St. W and Ossington have closed their doors. A Bally World Cup Soccer '94 resided there and was a fantastic machine. It's sad to see The Port and World Cup Soccer go. I will write a review shortly about World Cup Soccer as a tribute to The Port.

So long, World Cup Soccer... that's my score on the left.

Roller Coaster Tycoon at The Ballroom

Hello all! Our first review will be on Stern's Roller Coaster Tycoon!

The machine, based on the top-selling PC-CD game, was released in 2002, the same year in which Roller Coaster Tycoon 2 was released. I have fond memories of playing the PC game so I was excited to find a RCT machine, based on the top-selling PC-CD game, last year in Windsor. At first, I was not a big fan of the machine but when I found it recently at The Ballroom, a fancy bowling alley and bar, I really started to enjoy RCT.
