No need to get them from Marco, IKEA also sell them. We use them at SWL.

On a different topic, I’m at the Brunswick Arcade waiting for a trike to be serviced and @Neil McRae is right. The pins I’ve tried so far (GZ and LZ) currently play like used socks or, more precisely, like pins from the early 80s that haven’t been dialled in properly.

You send a ball up the playfield, get a coffee and it’s still working its way back to the flippers, richocheting off everything on the way, when you come back…

Finally got round to visiting Fun Land today 👍🏻
Good location and had a good time. As others have experienced, plenty of free games awarded via match or scoring; was great to have loads of credit left after what was in total probably a couple of hours or so of play (put £20 on).
I won't comment on all of the games as no-one cares, but a good selection and Godzilla was a lot of fun; especially on my first few games.
As someone else I think already pointed out, ST badly needs the tilt Bob sorted, as was way too sensitive.
Will defo go again and is good to have the option when I don't fancy the long journey to Croydon.

We brought our own foldable stool.

I can still recall (I was about 9) when pinball was at the front of the arcade with very early video games and the bandits at the back next to stuff like streets "wheel em in"

Slowly they become relegated to the back row "filler" area.

Then in the 90s boom they were at the front again only to sink to the back and eventaully disappear from most arcades

Spent an hour at Funland today playing Godzilla. Loved the machine even though it was set up a bit shallow. Insider connected didn't work though, I mentioned it to the guy on the counter but he said it's not connected. Also it was on older code.
