Pinball Wizard Workshop and Tournament

Pinball Wizard Workshop and Tournament

You don't have to be deaf, dumb OR blind to play a mean pinball!


On Sunday January 27, 2019 at 5pm, Modern Pinball NYC will host a very special event for the young and young-at-heart desiring to learn the secrets of the silverball. At this one-of-a-kind workshop, attendees will get hands-on training by real Pinball Wizards and have access to over two dozen classic and modern pinball games with which to train and enjoy.

Pizza and refreshments will be served while Pinball Wizards demonstrate their unique skills and teach eager learners how to properly aim, nudge, and flip the 2.8 ounce shiny ball to achieve impossible scores. Participants will also be treated to a special pinball physics demonstration during which a real pinball machine will be disassembled to show the inner workings of these mechanically complex marvels.

"After the pinball instruction, participants can enter a friendly tournament to put their new skills to the test." said Steve Zahler, owner of the facility. "Great prizes and awards from Stern Pinball will go to the top youth, women, couples and casual players, and everyone will earn IFPA ranking points so they can see how they compare with players around the world."
