Visitors were allowed to interact with the components at each station.

Fun With Pinball was initially built for the inaugural NoCo Mini Maker Faire in Loveland, Colorado in October 2013. The idea was to give guests the opportunity to explore many of the remarkable devices used in pinball machines. Devices are mounted on boards to expose their workings and wired to power with push buttons so guests can activate them and figure out how they work. The devices are all from electromechanical (EM) pinball machines which were made until the late 1970s when solid state (SS) machines built with electronics took over. Most of these devices are well used, having been replaced during a game restoration, but still work well enough for demonstration purposes.
Fun With Bonus is the home of the semi-coherent, misguided ramblings of professional and amateur pinball players.
