The pre-flipper games that inspired the pinball games we know today are excellent. As a kid I used to blow a ton of pocket change at Disney's Penny Arcade. There's nothing like the old-style baseball games where all you had was a button to swing a bat that would guide the ball to the backfences where your hitter's fate would be decided. They also had the early soccer arcade games -- which I imagine predate the foosball tables. And, yes, they really used to cost a penny in some cases. Never more than a dime. Then Disney realized it can scrap the arcade and magic store in favor of a pricey athletic gear shop. The horror. Nostalgia isn't cheap anymore. There used to be a drive-in theater 2-3 miles from my home -- now the nearest one is a 50 mile trek. There is a Gameworks by my house that houses a few pinball machines, but, other than that, finding pinball action in Miami is not an easy feat. Rick
